The 2020 Hyundai Palisade is not Hyundai's first three-row SUV, but it certainly is its best and biggest. The Palisade replaces the Hyundai Santa Fe XL, which suffered from a cramped third row fit for only occasional use. The Palisade's silky ride quality and premium interior appointments teeter at the edge of luxury. Offering three spacious rows of seating, loads of safety and driver-assist technology, all-wheel drive, and distinctive styling, it's a bold statement for this Korean manufacturer.

For 2019, the QX30 merely adds new option packages for the Luxe model. These include the Navigation package with Infiniti's InTouch services that allow users to unlock and lock the doors and schedule maintenance remotely using a smartphone app, and the 19-inch Wheel package that adds—you guessed it—19-inch Gun Metallic wheels rolling on run-flat summer tires. Otherwise, the QX30 lineup carries over unchanged.

Pros
Concept-car styling,
nicely crafted interior,
Sport model truly feels sporty.

Cons
Subpar fuel economy,
cramped cabin,
fully loaded versions are pricey.
