Driving the Hyundai Palisade, a segment disruptor or a practical choice

Hyundai Palisade is a name that is not strange to Vietnamese users in recent years, but the selling price that is considered to “break” the game has surprised many people.

Remember in 2020 or 2021, when Hyundai Palisade was accidentally seen on the street, it made many people stir because the design back then still had something very poetic, especially the fact that Korean cars always had more options than Korean cars. with competitors in the segment as well as a price range of around 2 to 3 billion VND.

However, anything that has been left for a long time gets cold, and people quickly forget about food and money when epidemics, wars, and inflation strike. The same is true for Hyundai Palisade when the low-cost MPV and small SUV segments rise as a trend. However, the distributor knows how to warm up the dish when announcing a selling price that cannot make other competitors angry, because only from 1,469 to 1,589 billion VND can you own a large SUV, which is Diesel engine and more options are still many.

Hyundai Vietnam is successful with Accent, Creta, Tucson, Santa Fe with a price formula suitable for the version. So what do they plan to do when they price Palisade at a much lower level than other competitors, to gain market share, gain sales or for some other reason? This is not necessarily true because the customer base has 2-3 billion to buy a car, finances are certainly no longer a problem and of course it is not the first car.

At the time of launch, the media and experts were somewhat surprised when the price was contrary to their expectations and they scrutinized it very carefully, giving many comments both positive and negative. However, no matter what the conclusion is, sales is still a satisfactory answer.

Unfortunately, the time the Hyundai Palisade was handed over was somewhat uneventful due to lack of components and the economic recession somewhat affecting car buying demand. However, reports show that at the end of December, there were 258 cars sold on the market and 413 cars delivered since launch, a number considered bright in a somewhat dark time.

So what are the strengths of the Hyundai Palisade? There are quite a few, but it brings back the concept many years ago “Korean cars are always easy to play with and have many options”. If the Palisade has a 3.8L V6 gasoline version, it will not receive a deduction, but “if” this becomes a reality, the car price cannot be less than 2 billion VND.

The manufacturer said the Hyundai Palisade has overall dimensions of 4,995 x 1,975 x 1,785 mm, wheelbase 2,900 mm, ground clearance 203mm. This parameter probably should not mention comfort because this is a basic must-have factor, which helps the Palisade be ranked with the Volkswagen Teramont, Toyora Prado, or Ford Explorer.

Of course, users who buy a car not only look at the size specifications but also look at the exterior of the car to see if it is neat, fashionable, or stylish because anyway, Palisade’s customer base usually already has what they need. a face rather than the stereotypical descriptions that sales consultants apply to all vehicle segments.

But that’s not enough, on the outside it’s for viewers to judge, but on the inside it’s a place to enjoy the results we’ve built. Palisade’s space tends to be Europeanized with dual screens being the trend. Of course, in this segment, equipment such as an electronic driving meter, a central screen must have Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, a Hud screen, electronic brakes, ergonomic seats covered in electrically adjustable Nappa leather with heating as well as heated seats. These are must-have equipment.

In addition, the speaker system must also be a well-known type like on the Palisade test drive version with up to 12 Infinity speakers, panoramic sunroof, and suede-wrapped ceiling. This SUV model also has the option of 6 or 7-seat configuration according to the trend. But for the 6-seat version, the second row of seats, which is intended for car owners, has smooth, cool leather, but unfortunately is only mechanically adjustable. Of course, the new car is a Korean car, so the USB Type C port and cold air vents appear fully at the seating positions.

Most of the materials on the car feel worthy of the money spent, the neatness and seamlessness are above normal, giving a feeling of luxury and flattering to the eyes as well as the plastic materials do not show up too much. Despite its affordable price, Hyundai Palisade does not lack any safety features currently on the market, not to mention the series of driver assistance equipment included in the SmartSense active safety package.

Although there is no V6 gasoline engine version, but the 2.2L D4HB diesel engine with a capacity of 200 horsepower, 440Nm combined with an 8-speed gearbox, there is probably no way to tire the Palisade when most All have a speed limit of 120 km/h. In addition, to satisfy the hobby of going “playful” from time to time, Hyundai Palisade is also equipped with Htrac 4-wheel drive system and 3 terrain modes Terrain Mode: Snow (Snow), Sand (Sand), Mud (Mud) or 4 different driving modes are suitable for leisurely driving on the street or on the highway, whether traveling fully loaded or alone.

With prices ranging from 1.47 to less than 1.7 billion VND, it is clear that Hyundai Palisade has an advantage over other competitors, including the Ford Explorer or Toyota Prado that once made waves, but are forced to be cautious when user trends require it. a more practical car than a car with a “label”. Although Palisade still has some limitations, in return users can save a few hundred million dong. Whether this is a “bargain” or not, sales will be the most accurate answer.
