Hyundai’s new flagship premium three-row Palisade SUV, unveiled at the Los Angeles motor show, will be available in selected Africa and Middle East markets from summer 2019.

“It will offer the ultimate in practical family transport, with large and flexible interior space, combined with all-road capability, and the latest technology for convenience and safety,” said Mike Song, Hyundai’s Head of Operations for Africa and the Middle East.

It’s styling conveys dignity with style worthy of a flagship SUV. From the front, a dominant, bold and wide cascading grille clearly represents a premium SUV, strengthened by composite headlamps and a vertic while the interior features eight-passenger seating as standard.

Abundant technology includes a class-exclusive Blind View Monitor which provides easy-to-see body-side views whenever the turn signal is activated, and complements the standard Blind Spot Collision Avoidance Assist. The audio and navigation display is a generous 10.25in touchscreen in widescreen format, coupled with a 12.3in fully-digital TFT center instrument cluster. 

Power comes from a 3.8-litre V6 with 295 horses and 355Nm of torque mated to an eight-speed automatic.
