Since its facelift, the Hyundai Palisade has not received a comprehensive safety rating from the NHTSA, though it did score full marks in the frontal crash tests, and manage a four-star rating for rollover tests. This is in line with last year's results, where it achieved an overall five-star rating. Similarly, there are safety ratings from the IIHS for 2023, though we expect the large SUV to get another Top Safety Pick+ award like it did last year.
NHTSA safety ratings are not available at this time.
Part of the reason for the Palisade's top-notch scores is its extensive list of standard safety features. Even from the base SE, these include features you often you have to pay extra for on other cars. Standard equipment comprises forward collision avoidance with car, pedestrian, and cyclist detection, blind spot collision warning, rear cross-traffic alert, lane keep assist, lane following assist, safe exist assist, rear parking sensors, and highway driving assist. The SEL doesn't add anything unless you spec the Premium Package, which equips features from the Limited, including evasive steering assist, forward parking sensors, highway driving assist II, a surround-view monitor, and a blind-spot monitor.
The top-tier Calligraphy finishes things off with reverse parking collision assist and remote smart parking assist. As for airbags, the Palisade comes outfitted with a total of nine: dual front, front side, driver knee, second-row side, and side curtain.

You'd be hard-pressed to find a car with better reliability expectations than the Hyundai Palisade. In this area, J.D. Power awards it a very respectable 83 out of 100 overall, with 84 awarded for quality and reliability, specifically. However, the pre-facelift model did have two recalls, one of which was very concerning. This would be the potential fire hazard from the tow hitch harness when the vehicle is parked. The other recall was for a disabled instrument cluster display screen. No recalls were noted for 2023 at the time of writing.
Nevertheless, Hyundai continues to cover its flagship SUV with one of the best warranty plans in the industry, which comprises five years/60,000 miles of bumper-to-bumper coverage, and ten years/100,000 miles of powertrain coverage. The roadside assistance plan is valid for five years and unlimited miles.
Yes, the Palisade has received stellar crash test results from the NHTSA and IIHS, with the latter having awarded it a Top Safety Pick+ award for the 2022 model year. These results are likely to carry over for 2023.
There are two front airbags, a driver's knee airbag, second-row side impact, and side curtain airbags running along the length of the cabin for a total of nine airbags.
