This is a couple of months old, but Car and Driver put together a fun article that covers 10 clever features that the Palisade has. Personally I'd say quiet mode and the the one-button sliding seats are the most clever. What does everyone else think of this list?

The top 10 list includes:
  • Retractable Cupholders
  • Blind View Monitor
  • Two-Speed Power Rear Liftgate
  • Cord Tunnel
  • One-Button Sliding Seats
  • Integrated Grab Handles
  • Smartphone-Sized Pockets
  • Side Exit Assist
  • Quiet Mode
  • App-Based Driver Presets

One-button sliding seat was a featured on a 1974 Mazda RX-4 that I owned. You could operate the button behind the front passenger seat or a latch close to the drivers seat to make the passenger front seat slide forward for ease of access the the rear seats in this coupe. The slide was powered by a spring under the seat.

I didn't realize that's been around for so long. I'm surprised it never caught on earlier as a standard feature.

Is the two-speed liftgate only on the Limited? I have a SEL+Premium+Conv+Drivers. Haven't noticed the cord tunnel either. That would be helpful for Android Auto because plugging into the USB right by the charger with a long cord is too cluttered, but a short one is awkward while charging.

The cord tunnel is not what you are thinking. Under the shifter there is a large space for your purse. The USB and cig charger spots are in that area. There is a small tunnel from that area to the wireless charger/ cup holder area where you can run a cord thru.

That is what I was thinking. I meant, it'd rather run a USB to the input in the lower area than the one directly above the wireless charger.

I think only the one by the wireless charger allows you to connect to the infotainment system though (Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, USB stick). All the other USB ports are just for charging. At least, that's what we were told.

Ah, ok. I'll have to look into that. Still though, would be useful for charging one phone while another is on the wireless charger. Different topic, but: maybe we're not getting it but the Android Auto seems pretty useless, except for maybe app navigation. We can run calls, texts, and music through bluetooth just as easily and without locking out the other features.

I don't use Android Auto (Apple user here), but I must ask: what do you mean by locking out the other features? Do you mean that you can't get to the regular Hyundai interface if you're in Adroid Auto? If so, that would be strange. I know that, with Apple CarPlay, there is a button to switch back to the Hyundai interface. You sure there isn't one on Android?

Is the cord tunnel actually handy for storing your charger?

Cord tunnel was a great idea but bad location. I find the cord running through that area gets in the way of the wireless charger and the cup holders. I sometimes have my phone on the wireless charger and the plugged in my fast charger. Also have the USB for Android auto/ apple car play right there too. Too many cords in the same spot with cup holders. Probably would've been better coming from the side of the center console.

That's really interesting, I can see how it can get really annoying and messy, do you normally have multiple cables in your car?

I wish there was a reverse Quiet Mode...for the times the occupants of the car (when chauffeuring/carpooling) want to hear the song but I, as the driver, do not!

I am sure I can play with the audio settings to put more sound to the back of the cabin....but as the driver it would be nice to do it as quickly as activating Quiet mode.

My 2005 Honda Odyssey Touring (15 years old) doesn’t have all the wonderful USB stuff, but it has 17 cup holders (2 of them retractable), one button sliding 2nd row seats & quiet mode (DVD equipped models only) on the speakers.

Gotta’ backup camera & power liftgate too (does the Palisade really have a 2 speed liftgate?). I’m considering a Palisade, thought I knew the features, don’t remember that one.

Yes, if you get the Palisade with automatic lift gate, you can select 2 different opening speeds. The opening is also height-adjustable for people with low-ceiling garages.

Retractable Cupholders
I'm ok with these but wish they were separated from the phone/charging area. I end up having to use one to hold my phone if I want to have it accessible and connected to Android Auto. Due to the way the USB is positioned, there's no way to prevent the USB cord from interfering with the ability to hold a drink. The cord always ends up sticking up and either pressing on my drink or water bottle (which then blocks me from putting it back in one-handed) or gets caught when I take the drink out. My solution is to use the front cupholder to sit my phone in (top side pointed down, with the USB sticking up).

Blind View Monitor
This is a cool feature, but I still tend to trust the blind-spot sensors and warning indicators on the HUD more than the actual camera view

Two-Speed Power Rear Liftgate
I don't think this should be on the list. Were people really complaining that the power liftgate on their vehicles opened too fast, and a slow option was needed? As it is, there is already too long of a delay (in my opinion) when using the hands-free liftgate. If I added to that delay by changing the speed to slow, I could probably give up and just set my groceries down to use the button.

Cord Tunnel
As others have pointed out, this would be way more useful if you could use the USB port in the center console to connect to Car Play or Android Auto.

One-Button Sliding Seats
These are nice. Probably one of my favorite features of the second-row.

Smartphone-Sized Pockets
If only there was a better pocket for the driver's phone! I miss the tray-like slot that my Murano (and many other vehicles) have for storing your phone.

I agree on the blind spot monitor. It’s a great idea and I’d like to see them improve upon it, but it requires you to take your eyes off the road right when you’re trying to change lanes or turn. Worst possible time to do that. I end up not really looking at it. I wonder if HUD technology is developed enough to put that video feed up there. That would be more useful.

On the lift gate, yes, apparently they discovered that there are people who want it slow, and others fast. That’s why they implemented the setting. I remember reading or hearing that somewhere.
