UPDATE: The Hyundai Palisade has now made its official debut in Singapore with a launch event held at Capella Singapore. With the recent rise in COE prices, the Palisade now starts at S$216,999 inclusive of COE for the sole 3.5-litre V6 eight-seater variant.

One of the more interesting Hyundai models in recent times has arrived in Singapore. The Hyundai Palisade, a gargantuan eight-seater SUV, has appeared on local Hyundai distributor Komoco Motors’ price lists in recent weeks, with the car set for an official Singapore launch on 30 April.

The Palisade is the second large Korean people mover to debut here in as many days, with the Kia Carnival’s own launch coming just a day before the Palisade’s.

For that money, you get an ultra-luxurious family SUV that’s packed with features. Standard equipment include three-zone air conditioning with an air ioniser, a 360-degree camera system to assist with parking and manoeuvring around tight spots (a crucial feature given the car’s size), a power tailgate, a head-up display, and a blind spot monitor system that’s similar to the one found on the Kia Sorento.

Up front, the dashboard is dominated by the large 10.25-inch touchscreen that houses the infotainment system, and complements the 7-inch instrument cluster. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity are standard, as is a wireless smartphone charger located down the centre console.

There are also double sunroofs to let in more natural illumination into the cabin, and the second and third row seats are electrically-operated for greater convenience. The second row seats also feature a one-touch walk-in button with memory to allow for easier access to the third row.

The Palisade comes with Hyundai’s SmartSense suite of safety assistance features, which include the aforementioned 360-degree camera system and blind spot monitor system. Other features include a rear cross traffic collision warning system, and what Hyundai calls Safe Exit Assist, which can sense if a vehicle is passing from behind, and activates the locks to prevent passengers from opening the door into traffic.

The sole engine available for the Palisade here is a 3.5-litre V6 that produces 277hp and 336Nm of torque, mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission. Hyundai claims an average fuel consumption figure of 10L/100km, which is decent for a car of its size, but actual on-the-road results may of course vary. The Palisade also falls into the C2 band of the Vehicular Emissions Scheme (VES), thereby incurring a S$20,000 surcharge, a figure which will rise to S$25,000 after 1 July 2021.
