How is the 2023 Palisade’s inside?
Not like the driving expertise, the 2023 Palisade’s cabin really feels contemporary. Sure, the fundamental structure of all of the controls is identical, however there’s sufficient revision to make an actual distinction. For starters, the steering wheel is new to the Palisade. It is the identical one that is featured within the present Sonata, but it surely suits in right here. This wheel is extra nice to take a look at, will be heated, and is solely nicer to carry and use. Plus, the controls on it are barely extra legible, which is a plus.
The middle console is essentially the identical, however there is a new contact management interface that manages the local weather management system. The knobs on both aspect of the brand new touchscreen nonetheless management the temperature, however fan velocity and whether or not the A/C is on or off is managed by this small digital show. We frequently deride using touchscreens for major controls, however to Hyundai’s credit score, the display is shiny and as simple to make use of as it’s to learn. We’re grateful that temperature, sync and auto settings nonetheless get bodily buttons, however this addition declutters the middle stack whereas sustaining performance.
There’s additionally a brand new heart touchscreen that rises above the dashboard. It is bigger than earlier than, now stretching 12 inches throughout (up from 10.25 inches) and has 720p decision. The interface behind the glass is identical, however we admire the additional display actual property. As for the cabin, Hyundai has made the Palisade really feel much more premium. The upgraded leather-based seating on greater trim stays, however Hyundai has added a massaging driver’s seat to assist cut back fatigue on lengthy drives. Fashions geared up with second-row captain’s chairs now have winged headrests, and there is a new third-row seat heating possibility too.
