What is the Hyundai Palisade’s top trim level?

I’m looking to buy a Hyundai, but there are many different ones with different trims. Could you tell me more specifically about the Palisade? What is the Hyundai Palisade’s top trim level?

The top trim in a Hyundai Palisade partially depends on the model year. In 2020, for example, the Hyundai Palisade was offered in just three trim levels—and of them, the Limited trim was considered the highest. But in 2021, the all-new Calligraphy trim was introduced that outshined even the Limited, and for 2023 a mid-level XRT trim was also introduced—although the Calligraphy remains the top trim level for the Hyundai Palisade.
What makes the Calligraphy trim so top-tier? On top of an upgraded grille design and wheels, luxury touches like premium leather upholstery, faux suede headliners, and massage functions for the driver’s seat set the Calligraphy apart from the crowd. The Calligraphy trim also automatically includes all the features that come with Hyundai’s “Premium Package” (an optional add-on for lower trim levels), such as:
  • A heated steering wheel
  • A 12-speaker audio system
  • Heated and ventilated seats in the first and second row
  • A sunroof
  • A cabin intercom system
  • Extra USB ports
And that’s not even touching on upgraded safety features like blind-spot monitoring with a camera, parking sensors, and smart parking assist. If you’re looking for a Palisade that pulls out all the stops, there’s no beating the Calligraphy trim!
