2020 and 2021 hyundai palisade

2021 Hyundai Palisade Vs. 2020 Hyundai Palisade

Luxury midsize SUVs are known for their premium features as well as their high sticker prices. If you want an SUV that offers the best of the best, we are here to tell you that you do not have to buy what is labeled as a luxury SUV to experience a premium drive. With the new 2021 Hyundai Palisade, you can experience premium features without paying the price of a luxury SUV with the newly added Calligraphy Trim. 

If you haven’t heard of the Hyundai Palisade that was released just last year for 2020 then you are missing out. This SUV is actually a front runner in its class despite being the new kid on the block. The new year is coming which means the 2021 Hyundai Palisade will be gracing the showrooms anytime now. Since COVID has changed the timing of many things it isn’t clear when exactly they will be arriving. But when they do, what can we expect to be different with the new 2021 model since the whole line is relatively new?

What Is New for the 2021 Hyundai Palisade

When talking about the differences between year model cars it can be a matter of splitting hairs. There may not be much that has changed because the model was so popular the year before. With the 2021 Hyundai Palisade, there will be a few great interior changes that will make life more convenient for the owner. With smartphones at the center of our society right now, having a car with standard smartphone integration is appreciated. Hyundai recognized that and added it to all of the 2021 Palisades regardless of the trim package. There are also LED headlights added as well as an increase in trailer wiring. There are also select features that have been added to the SEL trim package. 

While all of these things make an already great midsize 3rd row SUV even better, the most notable change is the addition of the Calligraphy trim package. This is a package that makes this SUV Genesis-esque quality with a price point that is accessible to a larger population. 

What Is Included With the Palisade Calligraphy Trim Package

The Calligraphy Package is something Hyundai added to give this SUV the feel of luxury without luxury prices. What you can expect to get with this package are several notable features:

  • Quilted leather door panels
  • Microfiber-suede headliner 
  • Puddle lamps, cargo sill protection plate 
  • Perforated leather steering wheel 
  • Downhill brake control 
  • HTRAC AWD setup 
  • Spider mesh alloy wheels
  • Rear-accent tail light structure 
  • LED center spotlight 

These are features you would expect to see in a luxury midsize SUV with a much larger price point. Hyundai has made these features available for a much smaller investment. When you test drive the new 2021 Hyundai Palisade with the Calligraphy Trim you may forget that you aren’t driving a luxury 3rd row SUV. Hyundai wants you to feel that way with these luxurious features. 

If you are curious about how luxurious these features really are and can’t wait to take a test drive, Greg May Hyundai is ready to help you. Getting behind the wheel of this luxurious 3rd row 2021 Palisade will have you believing the hype about the newest model of the Palisade with the Calligraphy Trim.

2021 Elantra

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra Redesign: What We Know So Far

Starting in the fall, the much anticipated Hyundai Elantra redesign will be available at dealerships throughout the country. Lots of changes will be found on the 2021 Hyundai Elantra that make it more attractive to buyers than ever. 

While the starting price hasn’t officially been released, it will likely be similar to the 2020 base price of $19,300. The affordable price coupled with impressive style, performance and safety features are sure to attract buyers who want a great value without sacrificing on comfort and handling.

Under the Hood

The 2021 Hyundai Elantra will be available with three engine choices:

Traditional Gas
The perfect mix of power and excellent gas mileage is what you can expect from the gas engine in the latest Hyundai Elantra redesign.

N Line Turbo Engine
Want more power? You’ve got it! The N Line Turbo is wrapped up with a new, sportier look and is a powerful engine that gets up and goes.

Hybrid
For the first time, the Elantra is available with a hybrid engine. The innovative tech that drives the Elantra hybrid delivers superior gas mileage while maintaining impressive performance capabilities.

A Bold Design

Anyone who says looks don’t matter is fooling themselves—at least when it comes to cars! Buyers want head-turning style, and you’ll get it with the new Elantra. 

The sedan is lower and wider, giving it a more aggressive look. You’ll still have your choice of several bold colors and, while not announced yet, there will likely be a few new color options. 

Safe on the Road

Safety has always been a priority to Hyundai, and the maker doesn’t disappoint on the 2021 Elantra. You’ll find updated safety and driver assist features that you’d expect to find in vehicles costing twice as much. 

Safety shouldn’t be a premium feature, so the affordable Hyundai Elantra includes:

  • High Beam Assist
  • Forward-Collision Avoidance Assist
  • Driver Attention Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Smart Cruise Control
  • Blind Spot Collision Avoidance
  • Highway Drive Assist
  • Lane Following Assist
  • Rear Cross Traffic Collision Avoidance Assist

Tech and Comfort

As is the case with safety, you’ll find tech and comfort features that are unexpected on a vehicle with a starting price of less than $20,000.

Voice-activated commands aren’t featured on any other car in the class but with the Elantra, rolling down your windows, opening  your truck, heating your seats, and other actions are easy as saying it out loud!

Other features include:

Digital Key
Open your doors and start your engine with your smartphone. Need to have a friend pick up your car? You can share the digital key so they can use their own smartphone. 

Touchscreen
A 10.25-inch touchscreen—the largest in the class—is available to put entertainment and information at your fingertips.

Greg May Hyundai looks forward to offering this updated sedan to our customers. Contact us to keep in touch and to be among the first to know when the 2021 Hyundai Elantra arrives! Need a car now? We maintain an impressive in-stock selection of quality new and used vehicles. Stop by today and drive away with a great deal!

2020 Hyundai Kona

Comparing the 2020 Hyundai Venue vs. Hyundai Kona: Two Impressive SUVs

Hyundai has stepped up its SUV game and, in some ways, created competition against itself. That’s a great problem for a carmaker to have, and offering two well-appointed, affordable SUVs on the lot leaves buyers having to choose between the 2020 Hyundai Venue vs. Kona.

If size matters, the Kona may be the better choice for you. Both vehicles seat five, but Kona has 45.8 cubic square feet of cargo room while the Venue has just 31.9 cubic feet. The Kona also takes the lead when it comes to performance with its 2.0-liter 4-cylinder compared to the Venue’s 1.6-liter engine. This adds up to 26 more HP from the Kona. 

For those who drive on rougher terrain or live where roads get icy, the decision between Venue vs. Kona is easier as the Kona is the only one with available all-wheel drive.

Starting Prices

Both vehicles offer affordable starting prices, especially when you consider the impressive features. 

2020 Hyundai Kona – $20,300

2020 Hyundai Venue – $17,350

If you opt for the top trim levels for the Kona or Venue, you’ll find prices starting at $27,750 and $22,050 respectively. 

Passenger Space

One thing that might surprise you is that despite the larger size of the Kona, the two vehicles offer almost identical passenger space, so you won’t sacrifice any comfort by opting for the smaller Venue. You will, however, lose nearly 14 cubic feet of cargo space as mentioned above. 

Electric Option

Only the Kona is available in an electric version, and it has a respectable range of 258 miles. As with any maker, choosing an electric version drives the price up considerably, but many find it worth the extra cost in order to save on gas and to lower their carbon footprint. 

Safety

The standard safety features are identical on both vehicles and include:

  • Backup Camera
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Keeping Assist
  • Brake Assist
  • Stability Control
  • Traction Control
  • 5 Airbags

Comfort Features

Both the Kona and the Venue offer keyless entry, AC, power mirrors, and cruise control standard. The Kona also offers steering wheel audio controls which are not available on the Venue. 

Are the 2020 Hyundai Venue and Hyundai Kona Worth Buying?

The affordable price of both of these vehicles makes them worth buying—especially when you consider the impressive features both offer. Some of the standard safety features you’ll find on the Kona and Venue are options on much higher priced SUVs, so you don’t have to look very hard to see the value. 

So, which is the right choice for you? Both are excellent vehicles and excellent values. If you’re not interested in an electric version and have no need for AWD, it largely comes down to the style you like. The Venue has a boxy look you may expect from a larger SUV while the Kona has a sleeker, more streamlined appearance. 

The team at Greg May Hyundai is happy to further discuss the features and give you a test drive in both vehicles. Whether you choose the Hyundai Kona or Hyundai Venue, 2020 is a great year for small SUVs!

Are you using your Hyundai vehicle’s technology to its full potential?

How do Amazon Alexa Skills work with Hyundai Blue Link? 

The ability to integrate outside devices with a Hyundai vehicle has been a real game-changer for the automaker and the automotive industry in general. A lot of original equipment manufacturers have been quick to adopt smartphone-compatible infotainment systems, while Hyundai was among the first companies to take the extra step by recognizing the popularity of digital home assistants. So, how do Amazon Alexa Skills work with Hyundai Blue Link? Basically, an owner of a properly equipped Hyundai vehicle will be able to pair their Alexa smart speaker to the vehicle’s infotainment system and change the way they interact with it, even when they’re inside their homes. Let’s take a closer look at what is possible.  Read the rest of this entry >>
