First Motors, the exclusive distributor of Hyundai vehicles in the Kingdom of Bahrain, has launched the all-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade, a bold addition to Hyundai’s winning SUV range.
With the continuous development of Hyundai, Hyundai Palisade longer, wider and taller than the ever-popular Hyundai Santa Fe, the new mid-size Palisade rides on an all-new SUV chassis with exceptional second- and third-row roominess. It offers eight seats, along with a generous cargo area and reconfiguration flexibility. The new model features exterior design and an interior finish worthy of a premium SUV, with new levels of all-road, all-weather capability, technology, safety, roominess and efficiency.
The design of the Hyundai Palisade gives the vehicle an elegant look that is characterized by the luxury SUV. From the front, a dominant cascading grille is framed by composite headlamps and a vertically connected lighting signature. A powerful, extended hood profile creates an impressive road presence, complemented by bold C-pillars and a panoramic glass side to convey spaciousness. Full volume over-fenders and body sides offer muscular detailing, and the rear emphasizes a wide and stable stance.
The vehicle’s interior has been focused on family-appreciated features, including power third-row seats that fold and unfold at the touch of a button, seven USB outlets with connections for every seating row, and 16 cup holders. The audio system includes a Driver Talk intercom function, so the driver can speak quietly to passengers in the rear rows, and a Rear Sleep Mode that switches off the rear speakers while driver and front passenger can continue listening to the audio. For cool AC, Palisade also features an industry-first, innovative new roof vent diffuser design that offers a high degree of flexibility in directing air from the climate control to the rear passengers.
The audio and navigation display is a generous 10.25 inch touchscreen in widescreen format, coupled with a 12.3-inch fully digital TFT center instrument cluster. Two Bluetooth® devices can be connected simultaneously, infotainment systems integrate with Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™, and there is a wireless charging pad for compatible devices.
Occupant protection is enhanced by Palisade’s very rigid structure, including underbody and side structures designed to better disperse energy in the event of a collision. Palisade has seven standard airbags: dual front, dual side, driver’s knee, and roll-over-sensing side curtain airbags. In addition, several advanced safety technologies are fitted, including driver-assistance features as part of Hyundai SmartSense.
First Motors, part of Al Zayani Investments group, is fully committed to demonstrate to the Bahrain market that Hyundai is the brand that represents unique value for money without compromise. Their confidence in Hyundai is demonstrated through their sensational Lifetime Warranty that is offered on the entire range of Hyundai passenger vehicles.
