2021 Hyundai Palisade - Now Available in Langley
Hyundai is famous for packing a huge amount of features into their vehicles without bumping up the price. This approach has seen plenty of success across the board, from subcompact crossovers to full-size sedans, and their latest model shows that they can translate the formula to the three-row SUV format. The 2021 Hyundai Palisade is the company's flagship SUV, and is now available in Langley. Here's what to expect from this upscale but affordable vehicle.
High-End Power and Performance
The 2021 Palisade is powered by a meaty 3.8L V6 gas engine making a robust 291 horsepower and 262lb-ft of torque. This extensive output is passed through an eight-speed automatic transmission to either front-wheel or all-wheel drive. The transmission shifts smoothly in all the right places, but if you prefer greater control and a more hands-on feel then the manual shift paddles on the steering wheel provide that option. The outcome of this powerful configuration is a sprightly acceleration performance of 0-100kmh in just 6.9 seconds, along with an impressive towing capacity of up to 2,268kg when the Palisade is fitted with a trailer hitch.
Interior and Cargo
Most trims of the 2021 Palisade seat up to eight passengers across three rows, although the optional upgrade to second row captain's chairs reduce the overall capacity to seven. But however many people are in the cabin, its generous dimensions mean every occupant will have plenty of space. There's also ample room for cargo, with a maximum of 2,435L with the second and third rows folded. With just the third row folded the Palisade offers a cargo capacity of 1,302L, while even with all seats upright there's still room for 510L tucked behind the third row.
Infotainment and Technology
As standard, the Palisade is fitted with an 8" infotainment touchscreen running Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and Bluetooth for connectivity. Upgrading to the 10.3" version also adds in SiriusXM satellite radio and in-built navigation. Both touchscreens are backed up by a selection of knobs and buttons for quick, tactile operation without visual distraction. Lastly, up to seven USB ports are available for device charging and to supplement the wireless smartphone connectivity options.
Safety and Driver Assistance
The 2021 Hyundai Palisade achieved impeccable ratings in safety tests, earning a full five-star crash test score from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and an unbeatable Top Safety Pick + rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). To add to the physical safety, there's also a generous range of active driver assist systems, with the main standard and available highlights including: - Lane departure warnings with lane keep assist. - Forward collision warnings with pedestrian detection and automated emergency braking. - Adaptive cruise control. - Blind spot monitoring. - Rear parking aid and back-up camera.
