Hyundai’s flagship three-row SUV, the Palisade, has come out with flying colours with a 5-star safety rating in the NHTSA’s crash tests.
Hyundai’s 2020 model year Palisade has scored a five out of five safety rating in the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) NCAP crash tests for both the front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive model in the U.S.A. While the car has scored an overall five-star crash rating, it’s worth mentioning that it has also scored individual five-star rating for frontal crash for both front occupants as well as for side-impact for both front and rear occupants. The Palisade scored a four-star safety rating for a rollover accident.
Aside from a stable structure, the Hyundai Palisade managed to score well in the crash tests because of its wide range of forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, blind-spot collision-avoidance assist, rear cross-traffic collision-avoidance assist, lane keeping assist, rear occupant alert, safe exit assist, driver attention warning, etc.
'Shoppers seek core safety features when buying a family SUV. This is why we use sensor fusion technology to make Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection and Lane Keeping Assist standard features in the Palisade. Occupant safety is always top of mind at Hyundai,' said Brian Latouf, Chief Safety Officer, Hyundai Motor North America.
The new Hyundai Palisade has also been rated as a 2020 Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) when it is equipped with the optional LED headlamps.
