Los Angeles 2018 Hyundai Presents its new 2020 Palisade

Serving as the Korean brand's new SUV flagship, the Palisade will sit above the Santa Fe in Hyundai's line-up and go up against the likes of the Mazda CX-9 and the Toyota Highlander (Kluger) in the States.

The Palisade is motivated by a direct-injected 3.8-litre naturally aspirated V6 petrol engine that runs on the Atkinson cycle and produces 217kW of power at 6000rpm and 355Nm of torque at 5000rpm.

At the back, things are kept fairly neat with slim vertical LED tail lights and tasteful application of chrome garnishes.

The third row is large enough for a pair of adults (just), and access to the third row is by means of a simple one-touch system that moves the middle seats forward.

Fabric seats are offered as standard, and the more premium quilted Nappa leather is optional. When it goes on sale next year, the big three-row crossover will seat up to eight-with two cupholders per person-seven USB ports, and available all-wheel drive. What's left for passengers, particularly second-row passengers, is near cavernous. Its three-zone full auto air conditioner enables drivers to control air conditioning for the second and third rows.

Other than dimensions, Hyundai speaks of a "Driver Talk" system, similar to the one found in the Honda Pilot, which allows the driver to speak with rear passengers through the car's sound system. "Customers can feel serenity and comfort in the Palisades". Instead of the automatic transmission lever mounted button.

More details will be revealed when the Hyundai Palisade makes its debut at the LA Auto Show. The power can be sent exclusively to the front wheels or to all four via a new HTRAC four-wheel drive system. When equipped with the latter system, the Aviator offers several drive modes so the driver can adjust to the road conditions... or to their mood in the moment. Produced in Ulsan, Korea, the Palisade rides on an all-new SUV chassis with exceptional second- and third-row roominess coupled with generous cargo area and reconfiguration flexibility. There is also a Snow mode created to prevent wheel slip when you accelerate. If movement is detected after the driver leaves the vehicle and locks the doors, it will honk the horn and send an alert to the driver's smartphone via Hyundai's Blue Link connected auto system.

The Palisade comes standard with pedestrian-detecting collision-mitigation braking, blind-spot collision avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic braking, automatic high beams, adaptive cruise control, lane-keep assist, ultrasonic rear occupant detection, and safe-exit assist, which prevents passengers from opening their doors into moving traffic.
