House / News / Introduce the $ 120K eight-seat Palisade super SUV from Hyundai New Zealand And you thought the $ 90k Santa Fe Limited was extravagant. Hyundai New Zealand takes its SUV offering to the next level with the “upper-large” Palisade, a grand machine originally designed with the American market in mind (hence the name, a reference to the Pacific Palisades in Los Angeles) but also now being developed on the right – then hands “especially for Australasia”, says Hyundai. The only other right-hand mover market for Palisade at the moment is Indonesia. The Palisade is offered in two specification levels for NZ, each with a choice of a 3.8l V6-petrol 2WD diesel or 2.2 AWD turbo-diesel (the latter being installed in the Santa Fe). Both have eight-speed automatic transmissions. Gasoline produces 217kW / 355Nm, diesel 147kW / 440Nm. The Elite is eight seater, starting at $ 99,990 for the 2WD petrol model. Flagship Limited is limited to seven seats for more space / luxury and starts at $ 107,990. In any case, diesel is the premium version, with a premium of $ 7000 (petrol V6 limited to $ 106,990, diesel $ 114,990). Palisade 290mm is longer than Santa fe – but still shorter than Mazda CX-9. Or most dual-cabin aircraft for that matter. Shift by wire transmission (knob, no lever), three-zone climate control (which can operate the seat heater automatically if needed), “smart one touch” walk-in and folding for the second row seats and a driver talk function that enables those who are in front to use the audio system to speak to the second and third lines are all standard. There are seven USB ports in the car and 16 cup holders – two for each occupant. Limited models add a Blind Spot View Monitor on the dashboard display, Surround View Monitor, LED interior lighting, a memory system for the driver’s seat, vents for the front and second row seats (standard heating throughout the range) and offer options from a suede roof and two-panel sunroof. . Leather upholstery is standard across the range, but limited buyers can also specify high-quality Nappa leather in cream tones with “beech look” interior panels. There is a special “Nappa Edition” model for $ 119,990.
