For its next trick, Hyundai will turn its already luxurious Palisade SUV into an even more upscale three-rower with the addition of the top-spec Calligraphy trim for 2021. The Calligraphy model adds unique exterior lighting elements, boldly-designed 20-inch wheels, a distinct grille finish, and standard all-wheel drive. Inside, buyers of the enhanced model will notice a faux-suede headliner, quilted-leather upholstery on the doors and seats, and a perforated leather wrap on the steering wheel.

Pros
Intuitive dashboard layout, class-leading features, every trim is teeming with value.

Cons
Intrusive wind noise on the highway, styling may not appeal to everyone, tight door pockets.

Pros

Handling isn't as crisp as with some rival SUVs
