There was a time when Hyundai was a go-to choice for buyers looking for an affordable vehicle without a lot of bells and whistles. In the last few years, however, the maker has inched more towards the luxury market, and the introduction of the 2021 Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy will shatter the notion that the brand offers only lower-end options.
The Palisade, a midsize SUV, was introduced in 2018 and delivers a smooth ride and full-sized third-row seating as opposed to the cramped third-row seating found in competitors like the Santa Fe XL. The 2018 SUV was well-appointed and each year improvements have been made, pushing it closer and closer to the luxury category.
In 2021, the Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy takes it over the edge and leaves no doubt that Hyundai has entered the luxury SUV market.
What to Expect from the Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy
Hyundai has pulled out all the stops and provides luxury at a level not seen from the maker before. While official prices have not yet been released, buyers should expect to pay a starting price of $50,000 to $60,000, making style and luxury more affordable. For that price, drivers and passengers will enjoy an array up upgrade inside and out:
- All-Wheel Drive
- Standard Nappa Leather Seats
- Leather Door Panels with a Quilted Stitch Pattern
- 12.3-Inch Digital Instrument Panel and Head-Up Display
- Ambient Lighting Throughout the Cabin
- Leather Steering Wheel
- Updated, More Upscale Looking Exterior with Special Grille Design
- Unique Exterior Lighting
- 20-Inch Alloy Wheels
Of course, details are still coming in, but the limited information available so far is making the 2021 Hyundai Palisade one of the year’s most anticipated vehicles. One of the details specifically mentioned that potential buyers are excited about are the 20-inch wheels that feature a unique web design that will bump the luxury appeal of the 2021 Palisade up a level. Just wait till you see heads start turning.
Another tidbit of info we’ve learned is that the Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy will offer an available VIP package. So far, it looks like this option will only be available in South Korea, but the maker could announce it will also be available in the U.S.
The VIP package for the 2021 Hyundai Palisade adds exciting features such as:
- Two Individual Seats in the Rear that Deliver a Limousine-Style Experience
- Cup Holders that Adapt to Keep Beverages Hot or Cold
- Wireless Phone Charging
- Dual-Display Entertainment System
