2023 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2023 Hyundai Palisade

1. Exterior Design

General information about Hyundai Palisade: The 2021 Hyundai Palisade offers upscale style, and a pretty simple way that Hyundai's symmetrical and smart design trends lately. In Santa Fe, the modification is concerned in the visual area, but in Palisade, the modification also concerned the interior and the external as well. Using a robust T-shaped LED/daytime running light signature, the Santa Fe design includes a full-width top lighting element using high-tech parametric jewels, coupled with innovative integration of the headlamps within this grille cascade structure. The side surfacing accents showcase the Santa Fe's rugged capabilities through 20-inch alloy wheels and a striking daylight opening underline. Profile illumination architecture can be hidden within the chrome molding that connects the character line and runs into the D-pillar. This new architecture is a bridge between the vehicle's center of gravity and the wide rear. At the rear, the wide taillights create a uniform line with the D-pillar chrome, with LED lighting contained inside a long slim fixture. A single line type within the rear glass is an integrated wiper, the top spoiler effectively creates a wing, and the Hyundai logo is now placed directly on the vehicle's sheet metal.

General information about Hyundai Santa Fe: The Hyundai Santa Fe is not only a family-friendly SUV, but it also features an upscale appearance that fits well amongst luxury-brand competitors. A pair of strong and efficient powertrains complement a lineup of modern technology features and eye-catching design touches, led by a sharp new front end. The 2021 Santa Fe got modified on the interior and on the exterior as well, but Hyundai insists it's basically built atop the previous model's platform. New headlights and a larger, higher grille are the most obvious differences up front, with a T-shaped LED running light acting as a signature element.

1.1. Santa Fe's sleek and modern look

Santa Fe's design direction was not very engaging in the last few years due to its ordinary styling. However, the new one is completely different; Santa Fe has an edge over its sibling Palisade in terms of design flair, modernity, and impression. It follows Hyundai's new design language 'sensuous sportiness' which is also seen in the recently launched new Sonata. The front fascia has a 3-dimensional look with a wide cascading grille, paired with a T-shaped DRL and LED headlamps. The T-shaped DRL is the identity of this car as it is seen in various places on this vehicle, which makes it look unique. The wheel arches have been provided with black cladding, which also gets integrated with skid plates on the front and rear bumper. This cladding gets extended till the bottom of the vehicle, which gives an impression of an SUV having off-roading capability. The front has a clean and sophisticated look compared to the busy design on Palisade. The side profile has a long hood and arching A-line, which Hyundai says gives a "presence of a dignified leader" to a vehicle. The A, B, and C pillars have a glossy black finish with hidden rear door handles, giving an impression of a floating roof. The rear is the most attractive part of Santa Fe due to its unique design. It has a wide LED strip that connects the left and right tail lamps, and with the rear spoiler, the vehicle looks wider and more planted. This vehicle is based on a new platform that is lighter, stronger, and has better crash absorbency. The company claims that it provides better airflow inside the vehicle. Buyers will have an option to choose from 6 different alloy wheel designs, starting from 17 inches to 20 inches.

1.2. Palisade's bold and sophisticated appearance

With all-new exterior sheet metal and skin, the Palisade has been created using a bold design. From the front, a wide cascading grille adorns Palisade with strong horizontal elements, LED headlamps surrounded by a character line, and LED daytime running lights positioned in an upper and lower configuration. It's an all-new design for a flagship SUV being functional, bold, and exuding dignity. An abundant use of glass, especially at the side D pillar completing a generous overall cabin theme, conveys a spacious experience most massive of three-row SUVs. Strong, crisp, and voluminous surfaces are highlighted by a number of trademark Hyundai cues such as the composite-light design of the taillights and downward tapering chrome line. Coming to the market in mid-summer of '20, an even more expressive and premium Palisade will become available. This Calligraphy edition will feature added exterior differentiation and a distinct upscale look, promoting its status as the range-topping, all-new flagship SUV for the Hyundai brand.

The Santa Fe uses some familiar design cues in its front and rear fascias, but the overall look is clearly more mature and a little more upscale than the previous iteration. The grille has been reimagined to feature a new unique pattern which flows across the headlight and onto the hood and side fenders. On the side, there is a new T-shaped cut character line which stretches from the top of the hood to the tip of the rear taillight. Santa Fe now rides upon all-new wheels which can be had in sizes ranging from 18 to 20 inches. Around back, the taillights and dual muffler exhaust are connected with a reflector band, accentuating the Santa Fe's lighter, wider, and more stable presence. The plan for the Palisade intends to make a bold statement in the full-size SUV market with an exterior design that exhibits style, unique design, and class-exclusive features in a field that has lacked a distinguishable look and with more than a fleeting nod to usable-space convenience with tough, road-ready off-road and all-weather capability. A Calligraphy trim level provides a distinct visual differentiation from other trims with a different front and rear fascia, and 20-inch alloy wheels designed with a premium finish. This Santa Fe exterior revolves around a theme of Inner Force.

1.3. Differences in size and proportions

The most obvious difference between Santa Fe and Palisade is the size. Santa Fe represents the smaller midsize SUV and Palisade is a full-size SUV. Knowing that difference is apparent one wouldn't expect what the actual size differences amount to. Santa Fe has 187.8" length, 66.1" height, 74.4" width and sits on 108.9 inch wheelbase. This pretty much places Santa Fe right in the middle of a midsize SUV category. Palisade on the other hand, have those measurements at 196.1" length, 68.9 inch smaller height, 77.8 inch bigger width and 114.2 inch wheelbase. This is exceptionally larger vehicle. Close to 9 inch longer and wider and 6 inch longer wheelbase. This difference in size ends up giving Palisade an upper hand in all interior measurements. Headroom, legroom and shoulder room for all 3 rows are more favorable in Palisade. One might think a car just being bigger may weigh more but there is only a 200lb difference in curb weights. That weight difference, along with their differences in powertrains translates to higher levels of fuel efficiency and greener footprint for the smaller Santa Fe. Step-in height is lower on Santa Fe making entry and exit easier. Palisade makes up for this with available height adjustable suspension and lifting/lowering features. Both vehicles are built on Hyundai's 3rd generation vehicle platform resulting in exceptional safety, maneuverability and comfort. Last, but not least, both vehicles will come in different trims with a standard FWD and optional AWD in US markets. Palisade's AWD system will be a more advanced HTRAC AWD with more available drive modes and torque vectoring capabilities. This will give Palisade better traction and handling abilities in adverse conditions and in spirited driving. HTRAC system would provide similar benefits for Santa Fe, but it is tuned to be more powerful in Palisade. Availability of FWD and AWD variants and similar features could make for a tough decision when choosing between Santa Fe and Palisade. All said and done, it is clear that the differences in size and proportions have set a distinct separation between Santa Fe and Palisade. This will expand Hyundai's SUV/crossover lineup into a more diverse and complete offering in today's markets.

2. Interior Features

The Palisade mirrors the Santa Fe's interior in the sense that it manages to feel like more than the sum of its parts. There's an upmarket feel to the cabin, with lots of standard features even on the base SE model. The Limited and Ultimate trims are downright luxurious with their wood trim, leather-wrapped surfaces, and quilted Nappa leather seat surfaces. Front-seat comfort is superb, and there's a surprising amount of space in the second row. Opting for the eight-seat layout replaces the captain's chairs with a bench in the second row, allowing the Palisade to match the Santa Fe's maximum seating capacity. Choose the seven-seat layout, and the second-row seats are heated and ventilated and feature power adjustment and a power release for easier third-row access. The third row itself is surprisingly adult-friendly. Both Santa Fe and Palisade feature second-row window shades, and open-pore wood trim is available on top trims.

At first glance, the cabin of the Santa Fe looks like it belongs in a luxury SUV, with rich materials and a sensibly designed layout. The perceived quality isn't smoke and mirrors, either, and passenger space is generous all around. The front seats are nicely shaped and adequately cushioned, and both the driver and passenger will enjoy a comfortable seating position. Adults will find a welcoming environment in the second row, with an easily adjustable bench. The third-row seat in the Santa Fe XL should be considered a kids-only zone between the tight legroom and low bottom cushion. The seven-seat XL is available with second-row captain's chairs, which make access to the third row easier.

2.1. Santa Fe's comfortable and tech-savvy cabin

Hyundai's renovations of the Santa Fe from an SUV into the CUV in 2023 meant there were big changes to the interior. It's larger than the previous model with a lot more space inside courtesy of adjusted width. This gave Hyundai more room to play with and resulted in 2 cm more headroom and a big 7 cm more legroom for rear seat passengers. The seats have also been lowered by 12 mm for extra comfort, they were definitely plush to sit in, and as leather is now standard across all models you're guaranteed a quality look and feel. Hyundai was heavy on the PR talk about 'tactility' and 'comfort', and the seats are supportive and the materials top notch so I won't knock them on that. The floating centre console looks like an evolution of that seen in the latest i30; there's a lot of storage space underneath it and wide armrests for added comfort. In terms of gadgetry, the Santa Fe gets wireless phone charging and a Hands-Free Smart Power Tailgate as standard. Higher spec models will also get a new 12.3-inch full digital gauge for the instrument cluster, as a replacement for the outdated display it had before.

2.2. Palisade's spacious and luxurious interior

If space is a priority, your decision should likely favor the Palisade. The 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe has a decent 41.2 inches of front legroom as well as 41.7 inches of front headroom. To the Santa Fe, this may seem roomy, however, the Palisade takes spacious to a whole new level with 44.1 inches of front legroom and 40.7 inches of front headroom. When it comes to the second row, the Santa Fe has 41.7 inches of legroom and 39.7 inches of headroom. The difference shown here is deciding with the third row. If you are someone who is often giving your kids' friends a ride or find yourself carpooling and needing extra seating, the Palisade is the best bang for your buck with 31.4 inches of legroom and 42.4 inches of headroom, as opposed to Santa Fe's 29.4 inches of legroom and 36.9 inches of headroom. These factors are crucial to your choice in a vehicle, where having more comfort is always preferred. A more spacious vehicle may also benefit larger adults or elderly people who may not navigate a more compact vehicle so easily. The Palisade's luxury is most definitely reflected not only in its interior size but in its additional features. Wood grain and brushed metal accents are included on the console, doors, and A/C vent surrounds in the Palisade as well as a dual sunroof compared to the Santa Fe's more basic moonroof. Although a sunroof isn't always a necessity, the Palisade provides a more upscale look with this added feature. The Palisade also comes standard with a push-to-start ignition system and an in-built voice recognition system; things that may have you shelling out extra cash to have installed in the cheaper models of Santa Fe. An additional 2 inches of ground clearance in the Palisade may also be a deal-breaker if you're the outdoor type. With more people and more cargo, ground clearance is a significant factor, making it easier to access the rear of the vehicle and more capable on rough terrain. Ultimate comfort is also provided with the Palisade's electronically controlled suspension, which automatically adjusts damping force, allowing for varying ride comfort and handling. This feature is not included in the Santa Fe model and is compared to the high-end innovations found in luxury vehicles.

2.3. Variations in seating capacity and cargo space

Santa Fe offers five and seven passenger designs, while the Palisade only comes with seven passenger seating. Both SUVs come with a second row bench, but seven passenger Santa Fe models have a fold-flat set of captain's chairs available for the second row. All Santa Fe models also come standard with a 50/50 split folding third row seat. Even though both SUVs are the exact same length, the Palisade has 2.4 inches more between the front and rear wheels, which means it has a bit more legroom especially in the third row. Both SUVs come with a dual panel sunroof, but it is standard on all Santa Fe models, while it is only standard on the top-of-the-line Palisade Limited. Both SUVs come with numerous cup holders and power outlets. Santa Fe offers six cup holders and a total of four 12-volt power outlets. Palisade comes with seven cup holders and a total of six power outlets. Santa Fe offers two on each row from front to back. Palisade offers two on the first row and second row, but the third row occupants get their own as well. Santa Fe bests its larger sibling in total interior volume, including better head and leg room in the first two rows and only slightly less third row space. Palisade makes up for it with a total of 18 cubic feet more cargo space behind the second row.

2.4. Comparison of available amenities and infotainment systems

In comparison, Palisade's lower three trim levels, SE, SEL, and Limited, all have the same default 8-inch display audio with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There is a standard dual front and rear temp control with a clean air ionizer and three-row venting. The SEL comes with the same audio system and a complimentary 3-month SiriusXM trial. The Limited, however, comes with a 10.25-inch wide touchscreen with navigation and the option of a 12-speaker Harman Kardon. All three of the lower trim levels have the available option of second-row captain's chairs for an additional $100. A different $2100 package can be added to any SEL with dimming rearview mirrors, a sunroof, and the 10.25-inch screen and navigation. This combines with the available option of swapping the bench for the captain's chairs.

Different trim levels of Santa Fe offer a variety of different amenities and infotainment options. The SE and SEL consist of a standard AM/FM/MP3 with a 7-inch display audio system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. There is also a complimentary 3-year BlueLink trial and the option to subscribe to SiriusXM. Premium add-ons for the SEL include a Convenience Package with the option to have two available features. One package allows for a 12-speaker Infinity stereo system combined with a navigation system. The second possibility is a panoramic sunroof combined with the same stereo and navigation system. The Limited trim level comes with the option of the same features from the premium package with the added ability of the ventilated driver's seat and a wireless charging pad. This trim level also has the option to have a 2.0T engine combined with AWD. Ultimate includes the same features as the Limited, while also having the option of a standard 2.0T and AWD, or a 2.0T with FWD. The Calligraphy trim level has all of the features and options from the Limited with the addition of a premium package consisting of a 12.3-inch LCD gauge display and a 10.25-inch navigation system. This comes with the option of a single pane or the panoramic sunroof. The panoramic sunroof adds on another premium package with the same stereo and navigation system, bringing the total price of those packages to $2100 combined. The only individual option from all of these packages is the HTRAC AWD system. The Hybrid adds different 12.3-inch gauge and dual automatic temperature control systems with individual multi-stage automatic and manual modes.

3. Performance and Engine Options

Santa Fe will add a hybrid powertrain to its popular SUV line-up. The new Santa Fe Hybrid will be the first in the line-up to utilize a solar roof system that recharges the batteries to improve efficiency. The solar roof is expected to add up to 2.2 miles of electric range per day with 6 hours of daily charging. The system directly charges the batteries when the vehicle is parked, and the vehicle will conserve the additional electric power when the engine is off, which allows for more electric driving. The Santa Fe Hybrid is estimated to have a total system output of 226 horsepower, and a combined fuel economy that better targets the mid 30 mpg range. The Santa Fe Hybrid's power is substantial and Hyundai expects it to be an attractive entry for eco-focused buyers. This hybrid model will employ the familiar 2.0-liter four-cylinder with the 8-speed automatic, but will utilize a more sophisticated HEV (Hybrid Electric Vehicle) transmission.

The new Santa Fe still will offer HTRAC All-Wheel Drive for a wide range of capabilities and driver preferences. The HTRAC AWD system was developed as a multi-mode system providing an electronic, variable-torque-split clutch with active torque control between the front and rear axles. The Sport, Comfort, Smart, Eco, and Terrain modes that include unique graphics on an all-digital gauge cluster were optimally tuned for Santa Fe to give drivers the confidence they need in various adverse conditions.

Hyundai Santa Fe comes with two different engine options in its home market. The standard gasoline engine is a 2.4-liter GDI with an estimated 185 horsepower for great power and fuel efficiency. This engine is mated to an all-new 8-speed automatic transmission for smooth and efficient shifting. The optional powertrain on the Santa Fe is a 2.0-liter turbocharged GDI inline four-cylinder engine with an estimated 235 horsepower. This robust engine takes over for the outgoing 2.0T engine in the current Santa Fe, and will be mated to an 8-speed automatic transmission. A Hyundai-developed 8-speed automatic transmission will be the first front-wheel drive gearbox to be longitudinally mounted. The in-house developed gearbox is currently found in FWD applications for the Genesis brand.

Santa Fe's efficient and dynamic powertrain choices.

3.1. Santa Fe's efficient and dynamic powertrain choices

Overall, the Santa Fe has 2 engine options that are more advanced and efficient than the Palisade options. The Santa Fe is now more future-proof by having the all-wheel drive and hybrid engine, and it can be used for all types of drivers in need of a reliable, safe car.

The 2.5-liter turbo engine is also a new upgrade from the previous Santa Fe Sport 2.0-liter turbo engine. This engine will come with a higher output than the Palisade engine. The Santa Fe engine produces 281 hp and 311 ft-lb, which smashes the 191 hp and 182 ft-lb that the diesel engine produces. This engine also integrates a new 8-speed wet dual-clutch transmission, which has faster shifting and acceleration than the regular automatic transmission. The HTRAC all-wheel drive system also has a new snow mode that can be switched on and off, providing more stability and acceleration on snow-covered roads. The drive mode select and terrain mode select are also upgrades from the Palisade's drive mode features. This tougher engine still only has a 25 mpg combined estimate, so it is only 4 mpg worse than the Palisade diesel engine, and the towing capacity is 3500 lbs.

The 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe comes with more advanced and efficient engine options. The plug-in hybrid engine and the 2.5-liter turbo engine are more advanced than the Palisade's 2.2-second generation eco-diesel engine. The Santa Fe plug-in hybrid engine is a 1.6-liter GDI 4-cylinder engine with a bigger 13.8 kWh lithium-ion polymer battery that is bigger than the Ioniq. This generates more power than the Palisade's diesel engine and produces a combined 261 hp. The electric motor itself also produces 90 hp, which is way above the power generated by the diesel engine. The combined torque is 350 ft-lb, which is higher than the 310 ft-lb that the diesel engine produces. With the new engine, it comes with features such as the electric manual shift mode and the drive mode integrated control system. This engine also has an all-new HTRAC with terrain mode select. This means the Santa Fe now has better traction on snow, mud, or sand. The fuel efficiency is also much better than the diesel engine. The MPG combined is 33 mpg, which is 11 mpg more than the Palisade. The all-electric mode also has a range of up to 31 miles and can charge on a level 2 charge point in less than 2 hours.

3.2. Palisade's powerful and smooth engine options

The larger 2023 Palisade offers a 3.8L MPI V6 as its base engine, and it serves the car well. Acceleration was very smooth for its class, and the powerband maintained a consistent delivery of torque. It was capable of hitting 60 mph in 7.4 seconds, which is surprisingly quick. Perhaps even better is the fuel efficiency, as it scored a near even 19 mpg over 600 miles of mixed driving and 26 mpg on the highway. This matches the Santa Fe’s smaller, less powerful base engine. Power increases slightly with the 2.5T or Limited AWD setups, both using the 3.8L V6 and offering 291 hp, but the larger weight of the Palisade is very noticeable. The AWD did 0-60 in 7.2 seconds, which isn’t much of an improvement for what we can assume is added cost complex electronic AWD system, using its torque vectoring to utilize the extra available power. Unfortunately, we couldn’t test the fuel economy for these versions within the COVID timeframe, but it is safe to assume it would be slightly worse. This engine is smooth and quiet, but it is much louder than the Santa Fe due to more road noise coming. Overall, if you are primarily a highway driver or need AWD capabilities, these setups would be for you. It will be interesting to see if the AWD versions with the V6 can outperform the upcoming top-level Calligraphy Santa Fe in winter traction and wet weather performance.

3.3. Differences in towing capacity and fuel efficiency

In terms of towing capacity, the Santa Fe and Palisade are actually quite similar. Both the 2.4L and the 2.0L Santa Fe are rated for 2000 lbs, while the 2.0T FWD Palisade is rated for 5000 lbs. This means the higher displacement Santa Fe engine is actually underutilizing its full potential so it may feel slightly strained when towing near its limit. However, the 2.0T and 2.2L Santa Fe are both rated for 3500 lbs, which is greater than most in this class, mainly due to the fact that Hyundai has designed these Santa Fe models with North America in mind, where larger tow capacities are more important. This is in comparison to something like the Ford Edge with a max 1500 lbs capacity. However, the V6 AWD Palisade is rated for an impressive 5000 lbs, making it the clear choice for those who plan on using their vehicle for towing on a regular basis. In terms of fuel efficiency, the Santa Fe will be the clear choice for efficiency-minded consumers. With the 2.4L/FWD model rated at 22/29 MPG combined, 2.0T FWD at 22/30 and AWD at 21/27, all of which require regular fuel, the Santa Fe can provide competitive fuel economy for a 7/8 seater SUV. This is in comparison to the Palisade which is rated at 19/26 for FWD models and 19/24 for AWD, both of which also require regular fuel. Although the 2 MPG difference may not prove to be too costly in the short term, small discretionary fuel savings will likely add up over time. For instance, those driving 15,000 miles per year can expect to save over $200 per year in fuel costs between a FWD Santa Fe and a FWD Palisade. However, for those who really need the extra towing capacity of the Palisade or desire a V6 engine, this fuel cost difference is likely a non-issue.

4. Safety and Technology

So too is the remote smart parking assist, a feature currently unique to the Santa Fe, that enables the vehicle to be parked or retrieved from a parking spot with the driver outside of the vehicle.

One area in which the Santa Fe may be considered to have a slight advantage is the highway driving assist, an intelligent cruise control and lane centering feature designed to maintain safe distances from the vehicle in front and also keep the driver in the center of the lane. This is a feature that is available on all Santa Fe models but only the top-spec Palisade.

In the area of driver assistance systems, the Santa Fe and Palisade do not differ significantly in terms of features. Both possess an extensive suite of radar and camera-based innovations. The Santa Fe is equipped with the standard forward collision avoidance assist but also possesses an additional cyclist detection capability.

4.1. Santa Fe's Advanced Driver-Assistance Systems

4.1. Santa Fe's advanced driver-assistance systems

The system in the Santa Fe will include a Highway Driving Assist system, rear occupant alert, safety exit assist, and a surround view monitor. The rear occupant alert is designed to help prevent children and animals from being forgotten in the back seats by using an ultrasonic sensor to detect movement in the rear seats. If the driver turns off the engine and it detects movement in the rear seats, the system will honk the horn and send a Blue Link alert to the driver's smartphone via Blue Link. The safety exit assist is an advanced function of the rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist system. When the system detects a vehicle approaching from the rear, it stops the child lock function from being disabled. Finally, the Surround View Monitor system is designed to provide drivers with better awareness of the position of the car in relation to its surroundings for safer parking. The system also allows drivers to better see obstacles or misjudged distances to objects when parking. Overall, the Santa Fe's HADAS is steps ahead of its competition and will provide drivers with a higher level of safety and peace of mind while driving. This level of safety means greatly reduced chances of accidents occurring to Santa Fe drivers and their passengers, which will be the most important factor to many.

4.2. Palisade's comprehensive safety features

Technology isn't the only thing getting upgraded for the new model year. Both the Santa Fe and Palisade come equipped with rear occupant alert technology. After detecting movement in the vehicle has ceased, Hyundai says the system will generate an alert. It will also send an alert to the driver's smartphone should they have one, the Blue Link connected car system, to ensure safe drop off and prevent forgotten child or pet situations. This is something that should almost certainly be standard on all vehicles in our opinion. Supervision also comes in the form of the Palisade's ultrasonic rear occupant alert. When the driver leaves the vehicle, it turns on a sensor to detect for children or pets in the back seats. On exiting, if the system detects movement in the rear seats, it will honk the horn and send an alert to the driver's smartphone through Blue Link. If no movement is detected, the Palisade will then lock the doors, preventing the rear occupants from exiting without an adult in the driver's supervision. Easy-exit seats and something called the second row sleep mode, intended for when you want to leave kids sleeping unattended in the vehicle, round out the Palisade's rather elaborate focus on customer safety.

4.3. Comparison of available technology and connectivity options

An opt-in only feature that is integrated into the dashboard of the Santa Fe is the Blue Link telematics system. This system allows features such as vehicle diagnostics, voice text messaging, SOS emergency assistance, and even valet alerts. Blue Link can even locate your vehicle and if it is stolen the operators can use GPS tracking to find it. This system isn't available in the dashboard of the Palisade model, however, it can be accessed via a smartphone. Another exclusive feature for the Santa Fe is the Heads-up Display. This feature projects a virtual image onto the transparent panel which is located behind the instrument panel. The driver is able to see information about the vehicle's status, smart cruise control status, navigation, and even the Blind Spot Collision Warning without taking their eyes off the road. This is something that you would not find in the Palisade. The Santa Fe offers an Infinity sound system which is a 12-speaker surround sound audio system that includes QuantumLogic Surround and Clari-Fi music restoration technology. The Palisade will also have the same Infinity audio system as an available feature, providing outstanding audio quality. The 2023 Santa Fe offers an 8 or 10-inch touchscreen display which will be compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay while the Palisade will have a 10.25 widescreen which can connect two Bluetooth devices or connect one device simultaneously to two different sound systems. A feature that is popular for both the Santa Fe and Palisade is the remote start ability. This can heat or cool the inside of the vehicle from up to 75 feet away. This is going to be crucial for those days when the weather is too extreme.

2023 Hyundai Santa Fe vs. 2023 Hyundai Palisade

The 2023 Hyundai Santa Fe and 2023 Hyundai Palisade are two standout SUVs in Hyundai's lineup. To dive deeper into how they compare, take a look at the following articles:
