Compare Performance

When comparing the standard V6 engine in the Hyundai Palisade and Toyota Highlander SUVs, it helps considering what both models do well. The Palisade offers similar horsepower and torque outputs as the Toyota Highlander, ensuring that you manage your drive easily. Both models come standard with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is available to help you conquer tricky road conditions. While the Highlander is the more efficient option, the Palisade offers a larger fuel tank, making the two about equal in terms of how long you can go before you need to make a stop at the next gas pump.

Compare Design

For a relaxing drive that you can enjoy on your terms, the 2021 Hyundai Palisade features rich comfort creatures that the Toyota Highlander counterpart doesn't offer with its base trim level. These starting amenities include automatic climate control, premium cloth seats, and a power decklid. With extra inches of leg space in both back rows, along with more shoulder room up front, this new Hyundai SUV's cabin layout proves more accommodating. Four extra cubic feet - totaling 18 cubic feet - of cargo space with the seats in place even give the brand-new Palisade an edge in storage convenience. No matter your storage needs, the Hyundai Palisade is the better option to ensure you can fit everything comfortably. The Highlander will make it a bit more challenging to find space.

Compare Technology

The 2021 Hyundai Palisade, unlike the 2021 Toyota Highlander, always allows you to remain plugged into top features on your mobile device. With standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ integration through this model's high-resolution 10.25-inch touchscreen interface, you can access everything from navigation to music streaming and messages services with voice-activated command on the go. The smartphone integration is now standard to the Toyota SUV, but you'll need to make do with a smaller touchscreen in the base Highlander.


Compare Safety

Both the 2021 Hyundai Palisade and 2021 Toyota Highlander feature active safety systems in every model for added reassurance behind the wheel. And while the Toyota Safety Sense™ P technology offered by the Highlander is impressive, our team recommends the Hyundai SmartSense suite of the Palisade for the range of different settings it incorporates. Examples of driver-assistance settings include smart cruise control with stop and go, forward collision-avoidance assist with pedestrian detection, safe exit assist, and ultrasonic rear occupant alert.

The 2021 Hyundai Palisade also bests its Toyota Highlander opposition in warranty coverage for long-term peace of mind. This model's 60 months/60,000-miles basic and 120 months/100,000-miles powertrain warranty coverage easily tops the 36 months/36,000-miles basic and 60 months/60,000-miles powertrain warranty coverage extended to Highlander owners.
