Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy 2023 The Palisade Calligraphy is among the best in its class thanks to its high-end style and deluxe amenities. The Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy is proof that luxury doesn't have to break the bank. The top-trim Hyundai is considerably less expensive than comparable models from luxury brands while yet offering upmarket features, premium styling, and cutting-edge technology. Hyundai redesigned its most opulent SUV for 2023 with a new external style and extra standard equipment. A bigger touchscreen and Highway Driving Support 2, which features automatic lane changes, are now available to buyers. The Palisade Calligraphy is made much more enticing by all of these improvements. DESIGN Hyundai did away with the Palisade's more compact family fascia and went large. The top-tier Calligraphy model now has a massive cascading grille that cascades down from the headlights all the way to the base of the bumper.

The new face increases the front overhang by 0.6 inches, which is the main drawback and makes an already large SUV appear even larger. The interior decor is mostly the same as the previous year, although it is still excellent. High-end black Nappa leather seats and black accents on the dash and door panels are surrounded by high-quality aluminum embellishments. Although there is some hard-touch plastic lower on this Calligraphy model, everything that is immediately accessible feels appropriately upscale. COMFORT The Hyundai Palisade is so incredibly comfortable that it's like a cheat code for lengthy rides. The heating, ventilation, power adjustment with memory, and smart posture adjustment feature of the Nappa leather front buckets helped to straighten my back when I became too slouchy. The second row is among the roomiest in the entire class, and both the heated captain's chairs in the second row and the bench in the third row. 2023's improved suspension dampening also contributes to the Palisade Calligraphy's already soft ride quality.

The standard 8.0-inch screen from last year and the optional 10.3-inch display on the Calligraphy model have been replaced with the new central touchscreen, which produces crisper visuals and a cleaner home screen. Both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are common, although both require connections. Also, there are seven total USB outlets throughout the interior, and Hyundai continues to provide its Blue Link smartphone software for remote starting via Google Assistant and Amazon Alexa. PERFORMANCE AND HANDLING The 3.8-liter V6 engine and eight-speed automated transmission in the Palisade deliver adequate power. From a stop, there is a respectable amount of acceleration, and there is still plenty of torque higher in the rpm range for simple passing at highway speeds. The steering is highly assisted, making it feel pleasant about town but shaky in tighter turns, and there is a lot of body roll, so don't go tossing the Palisade into corners too eagerly. SAFETY Automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning with lane-keep assistance, and adaptive cruise control with Hyundai's Highway Driving Assist are all standard safety equipment on every Palisade (HDA). That implies that the vehicle will moderately steer and automatically accelerate and brake according to the flow of traffic, but HDA will still be in control. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="750"]2023 Hyundai Palisade Review: Luxe On A Budget Image credit- MSN[/caption] The Calligraphy model comes standard with Highway Driving Assist 2. Despite the addition of automatic lane-change assistance, a better distance indicator, and even neighboring traffic sensors that prevent you from driving too closely to the car in front of you, HDA2 is still entirely manual. This is not a Hyundai; rather, high-end vehicles often have advanced safety technology like this. PRICE One of the most economical three-rows in the class, the standard Palisade costs only $36,885, to begin with (including the $1,335 destination charge). But if you really want to splash out, the Calligraphy model will run you at least $50,835. There are only two options: all-wheel drive, which costs an additional $1,900, and everything else, which is included as standard.

However, the Calligraphy model is actually relative value when compared to the lux versions that Ford, Jeep, and other rivals offer.
