The 2020 Hyundai Palisade has scored a 5-star rating at the US NCAP crash test. The 7-seat SUV comes loaded with a lot of advanced safety features
It took no time for the new 7-seater Hyundai Palisade to get popular around the world. Overall, the SUV is a great package and has been praised by many automobile critics globally. The 2020 Hyundai Palisade shares its underpinning with the Kia Motor’s Telluride. Many of you may know that recently Kia Telluride won the 2020 Word Car of The Year (WCOTY) award. Talking about the new Hyundai Palisade, the SUV has recently set a new benchmark in terms of safety. Both the FWD and AWD trims of the SUV have scored ful 5-star safety rating in frontal and side-impact categories at the US NCAP (New Car Assessment Program).
2020 Hyundai Palisade is propelled by a 3.8-litre NA V6 petrol motor
In terms of safety, the 2020 Hyundai Palisade comes loaded with features like Forward-Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian detection, Blind-spot collision-avoidance assists, cruise control with stop and go function, Red Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, High Beam Assist, Lane Following Assist, Driver Attention Warning and Safe Exit Assist. Moreover, the SUV is also offered with seven airbags as standard.
For now, Hyundai has no plans to launch the SUV in the Indian market
One of the most interesting safety features is the addition of Hyundai’s Rear Occupant Alert system. This system observes the rear passenger seats by using ultrasonics and let the driver know about any suspicious activity from the passenger. The main aim of this system is to prevent infants and pets from being left in the car. Mechanically, the Hyundai Palisade derives power from a 3.8-litre naturally-aspirated V6 GDi petrol unit that produces 291bhp of peak power and 355 Nm of peak torque. The engine comes coupled to an 8-speed torque converter automatic gearbox. Neither Hyundai nor Kia has plans to launch the Palisade or Telluride into the Indian market in the near future.
