LEARN ABOUT THE 2020 HYUNDAI PALISADE

Chose Between The New Palisade vs The Kia Telluride

Have you ever looked at two different make and models and thought you were seeing double? Well, a quick glance at the 2020 Hyundai Palisade vs Kia Telluride might inspire a head scratch – or two. You see, the two are built on the same platform, share similar exterior designs, and even the same engine options. They are even both replacing outdated offerings.

However, there are several subtle differences inside and out. Plus, when you compare service after the sale, and America’s Best Warranty, you’ll quickly discover why the 2020 Hyundai Palisade eclipses its Kia cousin to offer you the best bang for your buck.

In the information below, we’ll detail some of the similarities and differences between the Hyundai Palisade vs Kia Telluride. We’ll explore the different trim levels, compare the driver-assisted safety systems, and interior options.

Finally, we will outline some of the ancillary reasons why you should head to Brandon Hyundai to test drive the 2020 Hyundai Palisade today.

What’s New for 2020 – Palisade vs Telluride

The Hyundai Palisade makes its debut in 2020. Its competitor in this comparison is the Kia Telluride which shares the same platform and powertrain configuration. The Palisade replaces the Hyundai Santa Fe XE, which was a third row equipped SUV, but lacked the interior space consumers expect. Hyundai listened and made significant improvements on the inside, to maximize leg and headroom in each row of seating, as well as extend cabin space for improved storage capability. Hyundai also added a robust transmission cooler, trailer sway control and pre-wiring that when combined with a dealer-installed trailer hitch makes towing up to 5,000-pounds a snap.

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade is offered in three trim levels: SE, SEL, and Limited

The 2020 Kia Telluride is likewise a new offering. It replaces the three-row Kia Sorento, which also lacked ample room inside (do you see a pattern here). The Kia Telluride is offered in four trim levels: LX, S, EX, and SX.

Engine Comparison – A Single Offering for Two Brands

For those not aware, Hyundai and Kia collaborate on developing platforms and powertrain technology that benefit both automakers. This partnership is on full display when comparing the power option offered with the Palisade and Telluride.

Both are powered by a normally aspirated 3.8-liter V6 engine. It produces 291 horsepower and 262 lb.-ft of torque. This engine is connected to an eight-speed transmission, with front-wheel drive offered standard. All-wheel-drive is available across the line-up in both brands.

According to EPA-estimates, the 2020 Hyundai Palisade returns 19 miles per gallon in the city and 26 mpg highway in FWD configuration. When upgrading to AWD, fuel economy stays the same in city driving, but drops slightly to 24 mpg on highways.

The Kia Telluride fuel economy rating with FWD is slightly improved to 20 mpg in the city, but the same in highway driving.

Interior Comparison – Palisade vs Telluride

This is another area the two models compare equally. The Hyundai Palisade can fit up to eight passengers in the SE and SEL trim levels and seven in the Limited. With every Palisade, passenger and cargo space is much improved over its predecessor.

The Palisade comes standard with an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment display that includes Bluetooth connectivity, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ integration, and USB ports. It’s also available with an intuitive 10.3-inch display that offers SiriusXM and navigation. You can even add up to seven USB ports throughout the vehicle, and lock/unlock or remote start the vehicle using Hyundai’s Blue Link app.

The Telluride is likewise well-equipped with standard technology and ample cargo/passenger space. It offers the same standard features, even multiple upgrades with upper-tier trim levels as the Palisade. Both the Palisade and Telluride also offer a similar Harman Kardon premium audio system.

Safety – Driver-Assisted Technology

Hyundai and Kia both share a dedication to safety. This is showcased in spades with the Palisade and Telluride. Since they are both new models for 2020, they’ve yet to receive a published safety grade from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. However, they’ve both received an IIHS Top Safety Pick rating.

The Palisade is well-equipped with standard driver-assisted safety systems including a Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection, Smart Cruise Control (with Stop & Go), Lane Following Assist, Lane Keeping Assist, and Driver Attention Warning systems.

The Kia Telluride is packed with similar safety systems as the Palisade – so we’ll call this one a draw in the competition.

The Best Value – 2020 Hyundai Palisade

It could be said that the 2020 Hyundai Palisade vs Kia Telluride side-by-side is like comparing a pair of twins. They have similar dimensions, same powertrain, same interior safety technology, and even similar premium sound systems.

So, how do you determine which is the best value? Well, you could start with the opening price, but that’s only $100 different – with the Palisade getting the nod. However, most of today’s consumers understand the value of service after the purchase and warranty info.

This is where America’s Best Warranty tips the scales in Hyundai’s advantage.

Hyundai provides scheduled maintenance intervals for 3 years or 36,000 miles (whichever comes first). It’s also backed by America’s Best Warranty - Hyundai’s 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Limited Warranty, 5-Year/60,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty, and 5-Year/Unlimited Miles 24-hour Roadside Assistance.
