2020 Hyundai Palisade vs. Its Competition

2020 Hyundai Palisade - Best Car To Buy 2020
Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride are closely related; the Telluride’s a little rock and roll, the Palisade is a little yacht rock.

(Read: The Hyundai’s softer of the two.) The Subaru Ascent is another newcomer to the segment and boasts standard all-wheel drive, but a smaller engine and less space.

The Honda Pilot is the segment standout but is showing its age.

It's spacious and comfortable, but also bulkier.

The VW Atlas is chiseled and covered by a better warranty, but relatively boring.

The Ford Explorer is new for 2020 and larger than the Palisade, but also much more expensive in top trims.
