The Hyundai Palisade is a stylish SUV that offers room for the whole family. While each one of its trim levels runs on the same powertrain, there are lots of features to choose from. So, which one is right for you?

To help families in Ithaca, Vestal, and Sayre decide, Maguire Hyundai reviews each one of the Hyundai Palisade trim levels.

Hyundai Palisade SE

The Hyundai Palisade SE features room for up to eight people with three rows of seats and a 2nd-row bench. It also offers a comfortable and convenient ride with cloth seats and one-touch 2nd-row seats that slide for easy access to the third row.

The exterior of the base trim features LED Daytime Running Lights and automatic on/off projector headlights. On the sides, there are heated power mirrors that can melt frost away in the winter.

Moving back to the cabin, the dashboard features an 8-inch monitor that's Bluetooth® compatible and comes with both Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. When you shift to reverse, this screen shows you what the rearview camera with dynamic guidelines sees behind your SUV.

Some other driver-assistance features that come standard include:

  • Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection
  • Lane Keeping Assist and Lane Following Assist
  • Driver Attention Warning
  • Rear Occupant Alert

Hyundai Palisade SEL

The next trim replaces your 2nd-row bench seat with a pair of captain's chairs. The Hyundai Palisade SEL features seating for seven people but allows passengers easy access to the back with a convenient center aisle.

This trim's cabin also offers more comfort with heated front seats, dual automatic temperature control, and a choice between cloth and leather seats. There's also a leather-wrapped steering wheel and an 8-way power driver's seat with lumbar support.

On the outside, your SUV now features extra cargo capabilities with roof rails. There are also satin door handles and LED turn signals in your side mirrors. Plus, you'll now have a standard Blind-Spot Collision-Avoidance Assist watching your sides.

Hyundai Palisade Limited

The Hyundai Palisade Limited upgrades the interior, exterior, and infotainment system. It gives you more visibility with LED headlights and taillights, as well as side mirror approach lights. It's even prepared for tough weather with rain-sensing windshield wipers.

The cabin is just as capable with ventilated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated 2nd-row seats. All three rows feature textured Nappa leather as well. For extra convenience, there are 3rd-row power-folding seats and an 8-way power-adjustable front passenger seat. You can also brighten things up with a dual sunroof with sliding sunshade.

The front of the cabin features even more technology than the previous two trims. The infotainment system gets upgraded to a 10.25-inch touchscreen with navigation and comes with both SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and HD Radio™. You can also use the Driver Talk in-car intercom to talk to passengers in the third row.

Moving over to the driver's seat, the instrument cluster gets bumped up to a 12.3-inch digital display. Just above that, you can see your speed and directions right in front of you on a convenient Heads-up Display.
