You don’t need a wagon to haul your family around. The Hyundai Palisade is an excellent option to consider because it has space for all of your kids, pets, and their stuff. Check out how big the 2024 Hyundai Plasiade is without being a nuisance.

How long is the 2024 Hyundai Palisade?

The 2024 Hyundai Palisade is 196.7 inches long or about 16 feet long. It’s 77.8 inches or six feet wide and 68.9 inches or roughly five feet tall.

Many people ask if the Kia Telluride is bigger, but it’s nearly identical in size. The Telluride has 8,4 inches of ground clearance while the Palisade has 7.9 inches of ground clearance.

While the Telluride sits up higher and could be better for rugged adventures, the Palisade is sportier with a more convenient liftover height.

The Palisade is long, but not too long. While driving it in the woods, I did have to make a few five-point turns, but that only added a few extra seconds to turning around.

It has just the right width to easily pull into parking spaces. Also, if you’re a nervous parker, the 360-degree display is clear and accurate to help you avoid obstacles. The parking sensors are helpful as well.

Plus, you can use the remote park function to have the Palisade pull itself in and out of tight parking spaces.

How much space does the 2024 Palisade have?

The 2024 Hyundai Palisade has 18.0 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third-row seats with an extra storage bin built into the floor. Behind the second row you can access up to 45.8 cubic feet and there is 84.6 cubic feet total.

You can use buttons in the cargo hold to fold the second and third-row seats flat to create a level cargo floor. Plus, the second-row seats slide forward and back.

When properly equipped, the Palisade can tow up to 5,000 lbs. Also, there are roof rails on top for carrying extra cargo.

Interior storage is abundant with a deep center console, generous glove box, storage trays, cubbies, and a passthrough gear tunnel in front of the center console.

Space for items in the second and third rows is a bit more limited, but at least there are 14 cup holders for all the random beverages collected during road trips.

You can get the Palisade with space for seven to eight passengers depending on if you want captain chairs. The passenger volume maxes out at 155.3 cubic feet.

At 5’1” I had plenty of space in each row. The middle seat might get tight with three passengers in the third row, but two adults can sit back there comfortably. There is space to stretch out and adjust seating positions as necessary.

The Palisade is incredibly comfortable

I spent five hours in the 2024 Hyundai Palisade for Easter travel and it was a relaxing journey. The Palisade has an available massager in the front seat that relieves stress. However, the massagers are a bit weak.

The seats are plush and supportive in each row. While the second and third-row seats can’t recline, the front seats nearly fold flat. Naps are possible in each row, but the front passenger has the best chance of snoozing.

Plus, the Palisade has a smooth and composed ride over rough road surfaces. It’s hardly phased by dirt and gravel roads.

The climate control system is smart and effective. It rarely needs adjusting, but I did find myself turning the AC up on 80-degree days. It had no problems keeping up. Also, the ventilated seats are strong and can make you feel chilly.

You can use the sounds of nature for a peaceful experience, but the cabin is already quiet enough for relaxing rides.

There are USB ports in each row and even 12V power inverters to keep everyone’s devices charged. Trips in the Palisade can be fuss-free while keeping any chance of motion sickness away.

This sounds like I’m fawning over the Pasliade for being perfect, but it’s not. It’s one of the best options for family travel but I did find a few frustrating aspects that I’ll share in the next few days. The lack of a hybrid engine could be a deal breaker for some looking to be more fuel efficient.
