2020 Hyundai Palisade vs 2020 Toyota Highlander in Matthews NC

View Inventory2020 Hyundai Palisade vs 2020 Toyota Highlander in Matthews NC

Vehicle Overview

The large, three-row Palisade had more than a few competitors when it first landed at Keffer Hyundai, but as the brand as come into its own, there are few out there realistically competing with the 2020 Hyundai Palisade. One of the few models brave enough to go head-to-head with it is the 2020 Toyota Highlander. Your Toyota and Hyundai brands are always up for a friendly wrestling match, but this year's Highlander is drastically underpowered compared to the 2020 Hyundai Palisade. That's just the beginning of the trouble for the Highlander, though. With a tech lineup that's woefully short of modern standards, it quietly takes a backseat to the Palisade's hungry energy. Keffer Hyundai invites you to compare the two with us here as we're serving Matthews Charlotte Monroe customers with reviews of both.

Safety - 2020 Hyundai Palisade

Hyundai SmartSense is serving Matthews Charlotte Monroe Palisade owners with more features than the Highlander's basic safety systems. You'll enjoy features like Rear Occupant Alert, Highway Driving Assist, and Surround View Monitor on your Palisade, while the Highlander leaves out all three of these very important features. We'd like to give the Toyota Highlander a lot of respect, though. It's a fine vehicle for safety and against any other SUV in the industry, it wins on safety hands down. The Palisade's safety lineup is locked down this year, though, with advanced airbag systems, a high strength construction, and beautifully executed driver-assist features that surpass anything offered by Toyota's Highlander.

Interior - 2020 Hyundai Palisade in Matthews NC

We all love woodgrain options on our interiors, but only the Hyundai Palisade bothers to make that a reality in 2020. Connectivity features on the interior are more robust on the 2020 Palisade than the 2020 Toyota Highlander as well. For example, the Palisade has an available heads-up display while the Highlander gets none. Your Palisade also gets a huge 12.3" digital instrument cluster while the Highlander gets a paltry 4.3" instrument panel. The 3rd row seats of the Palisade are power fold ready, while the Highlander's third row seats are going to take some work and muscle to control, something we really don't like in any three-row vehicle. No one wants to wrestle with those third row seats! If you pick the Palisade, you don't have to do that.

Powertrain - Hyundai Palisade specs in Matthews

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade vs 2020 Toyota Highlander match begins with a comparison of their powertrain lineups. You'll get far more power with a Palisade. Its 291 horsepower base engine is turbocharged energy and is substantially ahead of the Highlander's 243 horsepower engine base model engine. If you're opting for the lower trims, please realize that the Palisade is ahead of the Highlander. We will mention that the Highlander has a 295 horsepower engine option, but that's not necessarily a good thing here when you think of utility. You pay a lot more for the Highlander's 295 horsepower option, and it's just not worth it for only 4 more horsepower. Lower trims of Palisade convincingly defeat the base model Highlander's engine.
