Hyundai has added an exciting full-size SUV to its model lineup that has Edmonton drivers talking: the 2020 Hyundai Palisade. Matched in many ways by its cousin, the 2020 Telluride – made by Kia Motors, which is a Hyundai subsidiary – the Palisade is sure to turn heads when it takes to the road. But how exactly do the two line up? Both vehicles are sure to delight growing families looking for a modern interior with advanced safety technology, styling, and reliability. You’ll find the new Hyundai Palisade offers a slight break in price while offering growing families the trusted brand they’re looking for.

Hyundai Palisade vs. Kia Telluride: Price

The Hyundai Palisade, on the base level, offers shoppers a slight $1,395 price break compared to the Kia Telluride, at very similar specs. Size-wise, the Palisade is slightly smaller, losing about 85 litres of cargo space behind the third row of its 8-passenger seating layout. But many have already noted the sleeker styling, with longer rear windows and chrome trim on the siding. The Palisade is designed to make a statement on behalf of the families that own it, while the Telluride provides more rugged appearance for drivers that switch between passengers and cargo.

Palisade vs. Telluride: Performance

Both the 2020 Palisade and 2020 Telluride share specs on their engines, coming standard with 3.8L V6 engines that each deliver 291 hp. The Palisade offers the option for an AWD drivetrain, just like the Telluride, and provides more than 20 cm of clearance off the ground for the occasional off-road adventure.

Palisade vs. Telluride: Technology and Interior

Adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking, and blind-spot and lane-keeping systems come standard in the 2020 Hyundai Palisade as safety features, matched by the 2020 Kia Telluride. Leather upholstery is available in both, while a 20 cm touchscreen comes standard. In addition, the Palisade features an electronic shifter and a cutout storage compartment in the center console, while Telluride comes packaged with a traditional gear shift unit and more subtle storage compartments. Each vehicle features Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ functionality.
