Hyundai Australia has released details of its MY2024 flagship Palisade seven-seat
SUV including a name change for its high-spec variant as well as additional standard
Launched here in 2020, and upgraded in 2022, Palisade is the largest model in
Hyundai’s SUV range. At a smidgeon under five metres, it’s around the same size
