The Hyundai Palisade is set to be the brand’s flagship SUV model in 2020, with car Dealerships across Australia anticipating the arrival of the large SUV that went on sale in America early in 2019.
The Palisade offers up to eight seats and is likely to come with a 147kW/440Nm version of the Santa Fe’s 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel. If the US Palisade is anything to go by, we can expect a 10-inch multimedia screen, heated and ventilated seats and no less than seven USB power outlets.
Nappa leather seat upholstery, adaptive cruise control and a push-button gear shifter are just some of the sleek new features that could afford the Palisade its 2020 flagship status.
Cited by the company as its “most advanced vehicle with zero emissions”, the 2020 Hyundai NEXO has undergone a comprehensive technology overhaul compared to previous Hyundai cars from the same line.
The NEXO is set to make its impact thanks to the efficiency and fuel economy it offers. Designed on a new platform that improved the cross-over in a multitude of ways - from a lighter car to a better layout of the fuel cell system - this everyday, environmentally-friendly vehicle also boasts a beautifully sleek silhouette.
Sneak peeks into what’s next
At Phil Gilbert Hyundai Dealerships, we’re always looking for vehicle upgrades and evolutions to share with our guests. When it comes to 2020 and beyond, here’s what we’re expecting from the auto market:
- The classic Hyundai i30 models are getting a facelift. The popularity of this small car in Australia could continue to surge, as we expect it to gain several new hybrid powertrains, built around a newly developed 48V mild system. This development is set to improve fuel efficiency, while maintaining the same power and torque as the non-hybrid version.
- A Hyundai ute launch has been in anticipation since 2015, but we’re expecting the actual release date to fall in 2023. The company is still in the midst of making some key decisions, but says it understands how essential a ute is for the Australian market.
- Electric vehicles are very much on the cards, with Hyundai working in partnership with Californian EV startup, Canoo. The new vehicles will be built on a technological platform that powers small, cost-competitive and purpose-built vehicles - with Hyundai Motor Group promising the release of electric vehicles by 2025.
