FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. — The all-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade now has the highest possible overall safety rating from the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA). Under the federal government’s New Car Assessment Program (NCAP), the front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive Palisade models earned the maximum five-star scores for safety in frontal and side crash evaluations.

“Shoppers seek core safety features when buying a family SUV,” said Brian Latouf, Chief Safety Officer, Hyundai Motor North America. “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.”

The 2020 Hyundai Palisade is also a 2020 TOP SAFETY PICK from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) when equipped with optional LED headlights.
