Four star ANCAP safety rating for Hyundai Palisade.

Australasia’s independent voice on vehicle safety, ANCAP SAFETY, has today announced a four star ANCAP safety rating for the Hyundai Palisade. This rating applies to all diesel Palisade LX2 models sold in Australia and New Zealand from November 2020.

The Hyundai Palisade which was released into the Australasian market in late 2020 achieved scores of 79% for Adult Occupant Protection (AOP), 88% for Child Occupant Protection (COP), 63% for Vulnerable Road User Protection and 63% in the area of Safety Assist – with its AOP and Safety Assist scores both limiting its ability to reach five stars. Respective score thresholds of 80% and 70% are required for five stars.

“The Hyundai Palisade fell short in two of the four key areas of assessment which unfortunately has seen it unable to meet the top level of safety that families and fleets have come to expect,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Carla Hoorweg.

As the only Top 10 selling model within the Large SUV (<$70,000) segment^ without an independent safety rating, the Hyundai Palisade was put through its paces against the current 2020-2022 test and rating criteria. All other models within the segment hold a five star ANCAP safety rating.

The autonomous emergency braking (AEB) and lane keep assistance (LKA) systems fitted to the LX2 Palisade lack the sophistication of systems fitted to peer vehicles assessed to the same criteria and have limited its rating within the Safety Assist area of assessment. AEB Junction functionality - which helps avoid collisions in intersection turning-across-path scenarios - is not available. Multi-collision braking and a speed limit information system is also not available. Emergency lane keeping (ELK) functionality is limited.

Looking at physical crash performance, a Marginal score was achieved for the chest of the driver in the oblique pole test. The LX2 Palisade also does not offer a centre airbag which can assist with improving head protection for front seat occupants in side impact crashes. While not a prescribed prerequisite for a five star rating, the presence of a centre airbag in this model could potentially improve its AOP score. Protection from whiplash injury could also be improved for second and third row occupants.

This four star ANCAP safety rating applies to all diesel LX2 Palisade models sold in Australia and New Zealand from November 2020.

ANCAP understands Hyundai plan to introduce a mid-cycle update to the Palisade in the coming months, at which time safety-related changes introduced to the updated model will be assessed.

“ANCAP’s role is to provide clear, reliable and independent consumer information for the broadest possible range of popular-selling models, and this rating and timing of the upcoming model update presents an opportunity for Hyundai to factor in the necessary safety-related upgrades to elevate the Palisade to five stars,” Ms Hoorweg said.

“This is an extremely competitive market and segment so we’d encourage Hyundai to do what they can to bring the Palisade to equal footing with its competitors.”

“35 of the 37 new models rated by ANCAP to our current 2020-2022 criteria – including the Hyundai Staria, Staria-Load, Tucson and IONIQ 5 - have achieved five star ANCAP safety ratings, and this highlights the great work Hyundai and other vehicle manufacturers are doing to prioritise safety and provide their customers with the safest vehicles they can.”
