Unmatched Quality for the 2020 Palisade

If you’re in the market for a midsize SUV, you may find yourself with a 2020 Hyundai Palisade vs 2020 Toyota comparison on your hands.

However, there are numerous differences that make the 2020 Palisade available today at our Hyundai Tampa dealer a much better option. Not only can you step into the Palisade at a remarkably lower price than its competing option from Toyota, but you’ll find a wider selection of optional and standard tech and comfort features for the price.

The difference goes beyond just features and pricing. The Palisade also wins in Hyundai Palisade vs Toyota Highlander side-by-side comparison unbiased accolades. Hyundai’s popular midsize SUV received over half a dozen awards, to include:

Rev Your Engines

Your 2020 Hyundai Palisade vs 2020 Toyota Highlander comparison likely includes consideration of engine specs. Buyers will find that there are notable similarities in engine power, but important differences in drivetrain and transmission options.

The Toyota Highlander comes with two engine options across its three trim levels.

The Hybrid LE and Hybrid XLE trims offer a 2.5L 4-cylinder ECVT Hybrid engine. The XLE trim provides a 3.5L V6 engine. The hybrid engines offer 243 horsepower, while the XLE’s V6 engine delivers 295 horsepower.

The Toyota Highlander mostly defaults to all-wheel drive, with no options to adjust your drivetrain in any trim. For front-wheel-drive, you’ll need to choose the XLE Hybrid trim, which starts at $41,000 MSRP.

By comparison, the Hyundai Palisade provides a standard 291-horsepower, 3.8-liter V6 engine across all three trims. Buyers can enjoy the option to choose between FWD or AWD with any Palisade trim level. The well-balanced Palisade also begins at just $31,550 for the SE trim.

All Eyes On the Interior

Drivers who need to maximize their interior technology, comfort, and features will find the Hyundai Palisade delivers at every trim. A 2020 Hyundai Palisade vs 2020 Toyota Highlander comparison on interior ultimately leans in favor of the Palisade.

You’ll find a center console touchscreen available with both vehicles. An eight-inch color touchscreen comes standard in every Highlander trim, and in the SE and SEL Palisade trims.

The Palisade also delivers a 10.25-inch color touchscreen with Navigation, a feature you won’t find in the 2020 Highlander.

Both cloth and leather trims are also available in both vehicles. However, drivers who want genuine leather should opt for the Hyundai Palisade, which delivers Premium Nappa Leather in the Limited trim. The Highlander only features synthetic leather in its standard features line-up.

The Hyundai Palisade ultimately leads on interior design thanks to its second-row bench seating. Add the extra seat to the middle row for eight passengers. The Highlander offers a smaller max capacity of just seven seats.

Award-Winning Safety

You’ll find a standard level of safety and technology features in both the 2020 Palisade and the 2020 Highlander. Both vehicles offer a wide range of primary systems, including driver and passenger airbags and anti-lock braking systems.

Just standard is no longer enough, however. Driver-assist technologies are quickly becoming the new standard. When making a 2020 Hyundai Palisade vs 2020 Toyota Highlander comparison on safety features, the Palisade comes out on top thanks to its focus on making these driver-assist features widely available at every trim level.

The Hyundai Palisade is just one of a small number of vehicles awarded the IIHS Top Safety Pick. The Palisade receives this honor thanks in part to its Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FCA-Ped) system. You’ll find the FCA-Ped available standard with every 2020 Palisade.

Other driver-assist features, including Lane Following Assist (LFA), Lane Keeping Assist (LKA), Driver Attention Warning (DAW) also come standard.

An Efficient Approach

The 2020 Toyota Highlander finds its edge in fuel efficiency. Its hybrid engine options deliver an EPA-estimated 35 MPG highway. Those engines do sacrifice power for efficiency, however. The 3.5-liter V6 engine offered through the Highlander’s XLE trim delivers an EPA-estimated 27 MPG highway. The Hyundai Palisade’s 3.8-liter V6 engine provides an EPA-estimated 26 MPG highway with the FWD option, and 24-MPG highway when delivering AWD.

The Price is Right

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade is priced right at under $32,000 for the SE trim. With a minimum price that starts at $39,800, the 2020 Toyota Highlander is well-built for drivers, but not for wallets. For a better combination of features from a widely-regarded midsize SUV, look no further than the 2020 Hyundai Palisade.
