HYUNDAI will offer the next generation of its Palisade large SUV in three trim levels, adding in an Elite offering above its namesake and below the existing Highlander. The change adds a range of enhancements, and a cheaper entry price.
The flagship 2022 Palisade Highlander brings a striking new premium look courtesy of body-coloured bumpers and side cladding, complemented by 20-inch Calligraphy alloy wheels.
Available for the first time is a luxurious black Nappa leather interior cabin (no cost option), in addition the previous beige and burgundy offerings. The new Elite variant is also brimming with extra features, and is available in seven or eight-seat configuration.
Palisade Elite features a 10.25-inch touchscreen multimedia unit with satellite navigation and 12-speaker Infinity premium audio, heated front seats, a single-panel glass sunroof, rear privacy glass, a smart power tailgate, and wireless smartphone charging.
There are also bright LED lights front and rear and stylish 20-inch alloy wheels. The Palisade entry variant now features wireless smartphone charging and an 8.0-inch multimedia system in an appealingly priced eight-seater range-opener.
The continuing powertrain line-up sees each grade offered with a choice of 3.8-litre V6 petrol 2WD or 2.2-litre turbo-diesel AWD, both with an eight-speed automatic.
“Palisade has been revised to provide an even more enticing large SUV flagship for 2022, with a more accessible range-entry model, value-packed new Elite, and enhanced Highlander,” Hyundai Australia CEO Jun Heo said.
The new base model Palisade will arrive in Q4 of this year, with the entire range available in Abyss Black, White Cream, Steel Graphite, Sierra Burgundy, Moonlight Cloud and Rain Forest.
In its petrol form, the base model is available for $55,000, with the Elite at $61,500 and the Highlander at $71,000. Diesel variants are priced at $59,000, $65,500 and $75,000 respectively. All prices are plus on-roads.
