Hyundai has introduced the 2022 Palisade, now available in three value-packed trim grades, and due in dealerships now.

The spacious, safe and luxurious 2022 Palisade range expands from the previous two grades to incorporate a new Elite mid-level variant, which slots between revised Palisade (entry model) and Highlander variants.

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, compared with the outgoing 2021 range-opener, and is available in seven- or eight-seater 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 (Qi standard) and an 8.0-inch multimedia system (in place of a 10.25-inch Infinity audio unit) 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 Motor Company Australia Chief Executive Officer Jun Heo said.

“Palisade continues to deliver an enticing blend of smart technologies and luxury features, in a seven- or eight-seater SUV package that is ideal for Australian families,” he said.
