Hyundai Could Put BMW and Mercedes in Check With the Palisade N Line

Hyundai Could Put BMW and Mercedes in Check With the Palisade N Line

A Hyundai Palisade N might not be around the corner, but the N Line version is coming soon

When Hyundai redesigned the Santa Fe for the 2019 model year, it decided that a long-wheelbase version will no longer be sold in the U.S. But it came up with a replacement, the Palisade, which arrived in North America for the 2020 model year.

Also a midsize SUV, the Palisade is 7.6 inches longer and features a 5.3-inch longer wheelbase, enabling Hyundai to go after the highly popular BMW X5 and Mercedes-Benz GLE. But the Korean brand needs a bit more to tackle the German competition and a Palisade N Line model might be it. Will Hyundai offer one?

2020 Hyundai Palisade

2020 Hyundai Palisade

Say hello to Hyundai’s new flagship suv

The Hyundai Palisade is the new flagship of the range, so it needs to be very good. It has a distinctive face that sets it apart from other Hyundai models and clearly can’t be mistaken for another brand. However, it’s not its striking fascia put on an otherwise familiar big SUV shape that’s important here, but the amount of room inside and how pleasant it is to travel in.

With seating for up to eight people, the Palisade offers one more than some competitors, and if you fold down all of its seats, you can get a pretty van-like loading bay. It also looks and feels well appointed inside, with no dramatic design touches - It’s just clear, functional, and minimalist.

It needs to face tough adversaries that have several generations of models behind them and, with it being a completely new nameplate, it may struggle a bit. Its exterior appearance blends a funky face with a more traditional overall aesthetic, but the interior may feel reminiscent to what you may see in a high-end German brand like Mercedes, Audi, or BMW, and its rivals will struggle to match the same feel inside their cabins.

Update 06/12/2019: Hyundai has released pricing for the all-new 2020 Palisade, and it looks like our estimates were spot on. Check out the details in the “Prices” section of our review below!

Hyundai's Super Bowl LIII Commercial “The Elevator” Features Jason Bateman

Hyundai’s Super Bowl LIII Commercial “The Elevator” Features Jason Bateman

Comedian stars in what’s so far the most hilarious car ad for Super Bowl LIII

Hyundai is using its Super Bowl LIII commercial to promote its Shopper Assurance program for buyers, and it even tagged actor, director, and comedian, Jason Bateman, along for the ride. Given Bateman’s presence, the commercial is light with its tone with splashes of humor sprinkled in to get the audience’s attention. In the end, Hyundai isn’t promoting a specific model in its ad, though it did include a cameo from the Hyundai Palisade, the company’s all-new big boy SUV. The commercial is all about promoting Hyundai’s Shopper Assurance and, while it didn’t exactly drive home the point of what the program is all about, the ad succeeded in showcasing that it’s available for customers who need it. The 60-second spot will run at some point in the first quarter of the Super Bowl.

You’re not going to find any trouble spotting this gargantuan SUV on the road

Hyundai is, once again, betting big on the SUV market with the arrival of the 2020 Palisade SUV. Named after the Pacific Palisade islands in California, the Palisade is the latest example of Hyundai’s commitment to bolstering its crossover and SUV lineups. Not that it needs to because it already boasts popular sellers like the Tucson, Santa Fe, and Santa Fe XL. But, bigger is better, at least in Hyundai’s eyes, and the Palisade is huge all the way around. The Hyundai Palisade is scheduled to launch in the U.S. sometime in the summer of 2019. Perfect timing, then, wouldn’t you say?
