You’re ambitious. Before you head out for work in the morning, you make sure to move your body in any way you can. On top of a booming career, you maintain your house and manage your family of four—your five-month-old puppy included. On the weekend, you keep the party going.
You refuse to let life hold you back, which is why you need a vehicle that rolls with the punches. Our Lehman Hyundai team has put together this 2023 Hyundai Palisade vs. 2023 Toyota Highlander comparison for active Miami, Miami Gardens, and Hollywood, FL drivers like you.
MAX PASSENGER CAPACITY
You’ve always dreamed of having a large family. Even if you only have two kids now, you want to make sure you’ll have additional room when new bundles of joy arrive. The Palisade and the Highlander will have room for all your most precious cargo.
The Hyundai Palisade is slightly larger than the Toyota Highlander. This is evident in their passenger volumes:
On top of this, the Palisade has more room for your second- and third-row passengers.
|Headroom (second/third row)
|Legroom (second/third row)
As your kids grow, the Palisade will continue to provide the same level of comfort for them. Meanwhile, your lanky teenagers may feel more cramped in the rear rows of the Highlander.
These models are fairly similar in cargo space, though. Check out their cargo capacities below:
|86.4 cubic feet
|Cargo Capacity Behind First Row
|84.3 cubic feet
|45.8 cubic feet
|Cargo Capacity Behind Second Row
|18 cubic feet
|Cargo Capacity Behind Third Row
|16 cubic feet
Although the Highlander has more room behind the second row, you’ll have slightly more space behind the first row and in the trunk of the Palisade, which is beneficial for your supersized grocery hauls or large new home décor.
You know that go-getter mentality you have? The Hyundai Palisade and the Toyota Highlander can match it. Thanks to their tenacious engines and reliable safety suites, these large vessels move forward confidently.
The Toyota Highlander will help you get ready for your early-morning aerobics class with its 2.4-liter turbocharged engine that generates 265 horsepower. However, if you’re motivated to beat your mile time before an 8-hour workday, the Hyundai has the juice you need. Its 3.8-liter V6 engine outputs 291 horsepower. What a thrill!
Just as your ambition has its limits, power comes with responsibility. For this reason, the Palisade and the Highlander ensure you can continue raising the bar with their standard safety suites. They even share a few brand-specific versions of these features in common:
Looking for more safety? The Palisade offers a more comprehensive safety suite, making Blind-Spot Collision Warning, Rear Cross-Traffic Collision-Avoidance Assist, Driver Attention Warning, Safe Exit Assist, and Highway Driving Assist standard as well.
Other than an available Blind Spot Monitor with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, the Toyota offers no other comparable features.
You’re always one step ahead of the curve. You enjoy the latest tech. You’ve always thought you’ve dressed certain ways before they were trendy. To make sure you’re always at the forefront of innovation, choosing the Palisade would be ideal.
Your comfort is a top priority in either SUV. For starters, each model offers several upholstery options to match your desired coziness level. While the Hyundai and the Toyota both have cloth, leatherette, and leather-trimmed seating, only the Palisade offers Premium Nappa leather.
Seating amenities start heating up with available heated and ventilated front- and second-row seats in either SUV. What the Highlander is missing, though, is available heated third-row seats, which come standard on higher Palisade trims.
You deserve the grandest accommodations, which the Palisade offers in spades. Serving as your gateway to loved ones is a 12.3-inch touchscreen display that pairs with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Better yet, you can hear the sweet melodies of your favorite music or your partner’s soothing voice through the available 12-speaker Harman Kardon® Premium Audio System.
While the Highlander keeps up with its available 11-speaker JBL® Premium Audio System, its standard 8-inch touchscreen pales in comparison to the Hyundai’s standard format.
Which model matches your mojo: the 2023 Palisade or the 2023 Highlander? After closer review, we believe the larger interior, enhanced capabilities, and premium technologies of the Hyundai will better keep up with your active lifestyle.
