If you have a larger than average family, a three-row SUV may prove to be the perfect vehicle. For good reason, many drivers are eagerly anticipating the arrival of the all-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade. It’s the biggest SUV ever produced by Hyundai. You’ll love the Palisade’s accommodating interior and signature styling. Class-exclusive features make this stunning crossover even more rewarding. Let’s find out how the 2020 Hyundai Palisade stacks up against the 2019 Honda Pilot.


Hyundai engineered to new Palisade to be a powerful performer. Under the hood sits a muscular V6 engine, which pushes out 291 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. An eight-speed automatic gearbox ensures a smooth power delivery. By comparison, the Honda Pilot’s V6 engine develops 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque. When traveling with your family and cargo in the back, you’ll definitely appreciate the Palisade’s extra horsepower. Both of these SUVs can be equipped with an intelligent AWD system, which can automatically adjust to the changing road conditions.


With both the 2020 Hyundai Palisade and the 2019 Honda Pilot are designed to accommodate up to eight people, there’s more passenger room inside the Palisade. When riding in the new Palisade, second-row passengers will enjoy an additional four inches of legroom. This is a big advantage for the drivers who have adult-sized family members. There’s also an extra 1.5 cubic feet of cargo space behind the Palisade’s third row. Although the Pilot comes loaded with a good amount of standard equipment, certain features are exclusive to the new Palisade. Parents will certainly appreciate Hyundai’s new Ultrasonic Rear Occupant Alert feature, which prevents children and pets from being left behind. Furthermore, only the new Palisade offers a fully digital gauge cluster. Other exclusive features available on the Palisade include quilted Nappa leather upholstery, a Blind View Monitor, and a 10.25 inch touch screen.


Over the years, the Honda Pilot’s styling has gradually improved. While the new 2019 Honda Pilot has a modern look, it doesn’t demand attention like the 2019 Hyundai Palisade. Hyundai designed it to have an especially bold road presence. A wide cascading grille and extended hood profile help distinguish the new Palisade from every other SUV in the segment. You’ll also notice the Palisade’s eye-catching vertical LED taillights. Integrated exhaust tips further highlight the SUV’s sporty character. Stunning LED headlights and a breathtaking set of 20-inch alloy wheels are available on the upper trims. Some of the Palisade’s available exterior colors include Sierra Burgundy, Forest Rain, and Moonlight Cloud.

While the 2019 Honda Pilot is a great SUV, it’s been surpassed by the all-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade. To see how the Palisade compares to the competition, contact Pohanka Hyundai to schedule a test drive.
