Since the launch of the Hyundai Palisade in the year 2020, it has become one of the most beloved three-row SUVs in the segment. The 2022 Palisade comes with a spacious cabin, tons of advanced tech features. In short, this three-row SUV stands a class above the rest in this particular segment. 

2022 Hyundai Palisade Dashboard

The 2022 Palisade shares its underpinning with its corporate cousin the Kia Telluride. And it is important to note that Telluride was one of the most searched for cars on the internet. Unlike the Kia, the 2022 Palisade has plenty of quirks in its top trim levels; the feature list is almost close to what you would see in a German Luxury SUV. Overall, 2022 Palisade sounds like a perfect package for its price tag which might be the reason for its high sales figures. It stands a step above the segment rivals such as the Dodge Durango, Kia Telluride, and Honda Pilot.

2022 Hyundai Palisade Interior Design, Dimensions, and Comfort

The 2022 Palisade comes with a simple and sophisticated interior. It uses upscale and soft-touch materials all around the cabin that give a lavish feel to it. The Palisade also comes well equipped with a plethora of features and creature comforts available as standard right from the base trim. Moving up the trim ladder, the number of features increasingly match the most lavishly equipped SUVs. The dashboard comes equipped with an 8-inch touchscreen to handle the infotainment duties in the SE and SEL trims, while higher trims come with a 10.25-inch touchscreen display and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster. Speaking of seats, the base SE trim comes with a choice of Black or Gray interior color scheme and cloth upholstery as standard. However, the simulated leather on the dash, satin chrome door handles, door panels/center armrest finished in soft-touch materials give a premium feel. Moving up the SEL trim, you get a leather-wrapped steering wheel along with an option to choose between the cloth seats or leather-lined seats.

The Limited trim comes standard with a dash wrapped in genuine leather upholstery, a melange headliner, Nappa leather seats available in either Black or Beige color. The top-level Calligraphy trim comes standard with quilted leather upholstery, a perforated leather steering wheel, and microfiber suede headliner. The standard seating capacity of the Palisade is 8 as the base trim comes with a bench seat in the second row. However, from the SEL trim onwards, you get captain's chairs in the second row reducing the total passenger capacity to seven. There is no lack of space; Ingress and egress are also easy in the third row thanks to the single-touch reclining second-row seats and properly placed grab handles for the third-row passengers.

There is no lack of space or any major difference in any of the four rivals; they are all equally spacious and comfortable in all three rows. However, Dodge Durango comes with a maximum passenger capacity of seven people as standard which is one less than the others. It is also worth noting that Palisade traded cargo space for slightly better front row legroom. Moreover, none of the rivals can match what Hyundai offers on its Calligraphy trim level.

2022 Hyundai Palisade Infotainment

The standard infotainment system onboard the 2022 Palisade comes with an 8-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth connectivity, Wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and three USB ports available at the front row. The standard unit can also be upgraded to a 10.25-inch touch screen display along with navigation. The touchscreen display has crisp graphics, and responds accurately to touch inputs. The second row of seats also gets two USB ports while the top two trims come with dual USB ports available on the third row as well. HD radio is a standard feature, while SiriusXM satellite radio is available on the higher two trims.

Features like a rear-seat quiet mode and Driver Talk in-car intercom system allow easy communication with the rear row. Apart from that, a six-speaker stereo comes standard. However, you can upgrade that to a 12-speaker premium Harman Kardon system. Moreover, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is also standard on the higher trims.

2022 Hyundai Palisade Cargo Capacity

Just as like the huge cabin, the cargo trunk of the 2022 Hyundai Palisade is equally colossal. With all the seats upright, it offers 18 cubic feet of space behind the third row of seats. It is decent enough to store in a week’s worth of groceries. The third row and second row of seats come in a 60/40 split-folding configuration that can be folded down pretty easily.

Moreover, a hands-free tailgate and power-folding rear seats are available on the higher trims. The third-row seats fold down to give access to 45.8 cubic feet of space and when both the rear rows are folded down the space increases to a massive 86.4 cubic feet.

The Korean cousins prove to be the most practical offering amongst the rivals as they come with the largest cargo trunks. 2022 Kia Telluride comes with the biggest standard cargo trunk offering 21 cubic feet of space. It is followed by Hyundai Palisade which offers 18 cubic feet of space. The 2022 Honda Pilot comes with the smallest trunk. 

Additional Interior Storage Spaces

2022 Palisade has plenty of small storage spaces everywhere inside the cabin. An under-floor storage compartment is present at the back that allows for storage space of valuable items like wallets, phones, etc. You also get a total of 16 cupholders total in the front and rear center control armrests. The door pockets are huge and there are seatback pockets present behind the first row of seats. The center console storage bin is also huge and there is some additional storage space beneath the push-start button. 

2022 Hyundai Palisade Creature Comforts

2022 Hyundai Palisade is one of the most well equipped and value for money SUVs in the segment. The base trim is scantily equipped but still gets features like a 6-way power-adjustable driver's seat, manual air-conditioning with HVAC vents for the second and third row of seats and a power-folding rear bench seat. The SEL trim adds a power sunroof, Proximity keyless entry and push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, power-adjustable front seats with heating function, second-row captain’s chairs and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. 

The Limited trim adds better creature comforts like power-adjustable front seats with heating and ventilation function, heated and ventilated second row seats, dual sunroof, a hands-free power liftgate and Nappa leather upholstery. Wireless device charging, 64-color ambient interior lighting, and a heated steering wheel are also standard on the Limited trim. All these features are carried forward to the top Calligraphy trim; the only changes being trim accents and interior color scheme. The list of features is identical for the top two trims with minor additions. 

Verdict

2022 Hyundai Palisade is a budget-friendly yet marginally upscale three-row SUV. It comes with a huge cabin that offers plenty of space for passengers as well as cargo alike. The lower trims do miss out on but as you move up the trim ladder you get plenty of advanced tech and luxury features you can find in a Merc or BMW. If budget is not an issue for you, we recommend you get the 2022 Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy. It will cater to all of your needs and its interior will not disappoint in any way.
