Red letter day for Palisade

Hyundai Australia has released details of its MY2024 flagship Palisade seven-seat SUV including a name change for its high-spec variant.

Launched here in 2020 and upgraded in 2022, Palisade is the largest model in Hyundai’s SUV range.

At a smidgeon under five metres, it’s around the same size and price as competitors such as Toyota Kluger, Mazda CX-90 and Kia Sorento.

Top of the range Highlander has been replaced by Calligraphy and a higher-spec Black Ink variant, no doubt in line with the elegant writing theme. 

The Elite name is retained for the entry-level model.

As before, both Palisade variants get the choice of 3.8-litre direct-injection petrol or 2.2-litre turbo-diesel engines, each mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission.

The Calligraphy Black Ink variant is exclusively offered for 2024 Palisade with white or black, with a blacked-out treatment inside and out.

It’s headlined by a dark tinted radiator grille and bumper garnish and gloss black 20-inch alloy wheels.

The look is tied together with dark tinted front and rear skid plates, lower door garnishes, tail light garnishes and badging, with black glossy roof rails completing the monochromatic impression. 

The treatment continues inside with Black Suede appointed seats and headlining.

2024 Palisade Elite gains extra standard features in the form of a heated steering wheel and eight-way power adjustable passenger seat.

Interior mood is enhanced with mélange knit headlining and pillar trims, wood-look interior trim inserts, deluxe alloy scuff plates and a cargo area carpet mat.

Palisade Elite also gains sound-insulating acoustic laminated front door glass, in addition to the standard acoustic windshield.      

Calligraphy gains a convenient touch-type climate control screen, water-repellent front door glass and acoustic laminated rear door glass, over and above the preceding flagship’s extensive standard equipment.

Nine colours are available, only one of them standard with the eight Premium tints a $695 option.

Prices are up about $1000 across the board, with new Palisade on sale now from $66,800 to $80,900 plus on-road costs.
