In a hectic couple months with the Yarkony household and the Driving.ca crew, the Palisade proved its value and quality over 4,000 km
The end of a long-term test is always a bitter pill to swallow. With a busy family life, especially in the winter hockey season, it can take a couple of months just to get comfortable in a vehicle and find all the nooks and crannies and features that help make packing and driving with kids easier.
But to be honest, in the Palisade that adjustment period was virtually eliminated. Hyundai seems to have landed on a pretty magical formula for making something feel fresh and new without being needlessly different. All the controls seem to be the best conventional and ergonomic controls, except perhaps the push-button transmission control, which is so intuitive, that it was barely noticed, and got nothing but praise, even from resident crank David Booth. The easy-to-use infotainment system is an effortless blend of hard controls and a quick responsive touchscreen with logical layout, lightly customizable and horizontally oriented for best compatibility with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto and a large map display. Everything is just so intuitive that it’s hard to find fault or name a better system in this or any price range.
