Over the last decade, SUVs have become the most sought-after vehicle. SUVs have a certain amount of versatility that just can't be found in any other vehicle. Because these vehicles are so popular, many manufacturers have decided to create a wide range of options for consumers to choose from.
In a segment that is so oversaturated with choices, it is hard for one vehicle to stand out amongst the competition; however, the Hyundai Palisade has managed to do just that.
The 2022 Hyundai Palisade features a striking exterior design and a well-equipped interior. This year, the stunning vehicle has added several new and desirable features interior and exterior, which include new standard driver-assist features. Here is a look at the top five reasons why a Hyundai Palisade should be bought.
Head-Turning Exterior Design
The Palisade has a bold and eye-catching exterior design. The wide body is wrapped in sleek, sculpted lines that help to give a more athletic appearance. The stylish front fascia is highlighted by a unique octagon-shaped grille and two vertically stacked LED projector headlights and LED daytime running lamps. In the rear, the Palisade offers available LED taillights to help make the vehicle more visible to other drivers on the road.
The exterior also offers seven different elegant paint colours to choose from, which include Gaia brown, abyss black, and sierra burgundy. 18-inch alloy wheels come standard, but 20-inch machine-finished alloy wheels are available. Owners can choose to add a few extra features to the exterior, including available chrome accents around the grille and satin chrome door handles, to add another level of elegance to the already stunning design.
The 2022 Palisade offers a spacious and luxurious cabin. The interior comes standard with seating for up to eight people. However, the Calligraphy and Limited trims come standard with captain's chairs in the second row, which means that the cabin is able to seat up to seven occupants.

With the rear seats folded down, the cabin can provide up to 46 cubic feet of interior cargo space.
