2022 Hyundai Santa Fe vs 2022 Hyundai Palisade

Serving Troy, MI

At Suburban Hyundai, our customers often inquire about the differences between the impressive 2022 Santa Fe and the beautiful 2022 Palisade. While these are both midsize models, the Santa Fe is a two-row crossover, while the Palisade offers three rows of seating. This is only one of several differences that you should know as you prepare to make your final selection.


The 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe offers two gas engines, a hybrid engine and a plug-in hybrid engine. The base option is a 2.5-liter, four-cylinder system paired with an eight-speed auto transmission. It delivers 191 horsepower to you. The higher-level gas engine is a turbocharged variant of the 2.5-liter, four-cylinder system, and it gives you 281 horsepower. The 2022 Palisade is exclusively equipped with a 3.8-liter V6 engine. It is tied to an eight-speed automatic transmission. The result is the production of 291 horsepower.


The Santa Fe has distinctive, contemporary styling with T-shaped, two-part LED headlights. These flank a metallic grille with triangle-style mesh. The arched hood maintains its height as it fades to the rear. The sides reflect definition over the fenders and across the upper and lower portions of the door panels. The Palisade has a sophisticated stance with a chrome-outlined grille and chrome accentuation from nose to tail. The grille’s mesh is comparable. Like the Santa Fe, the Palisade has two-part headlights, but the Palisade’s headlights show a cascading, vertical LED ribbon. The Palisade is a longer vehicle with regal definition through the hood and running horizontally across the sides.


The Santa Fe is masterfully appointed with exciting features like ambient interior lighting, a heads-up display, an auto parking system, rain-sensing wipers, heated front and rear seats, driver’s memory settings, smart device integration, USB ports, an upgraded sound system, leather upholstery, a power sunroof and more. The Palisade adds a third row of seats. It also has a power-folding function for the second row, adaptive cruise control, a sunroof, leather upholstery, the option for second-row captain’s chairs, a hands-free liftgate, USB ports across all three rows, a household-style power outlet, smart device integration, and other equipment.

While there are many similarities between the 2022 Santa Fe and the 2022 Palisade, their distinctions are notable. To get more details about these Hyundai SUVs, make arrangements to tour the Suburban Hyundai showroom soon.
