Hyundai Palisade models have recently earnt a 5-star ANCAP rating after undergoing some upgrades around the vehicle’s safety features.

The models originally released and tested against the ANCAP criteria only achieved a 4-star rating due to limited scores in adult occupant protection and safety assist.

Updated Palisade models have been assessed by ANCAP and scored an impressive 84% in adult occupant protection, 88% in child occupant protection, 62% in vulnerable road user protection and 83% safety assist – securing a five-star worth status in all four key areas of assessment.

The vehicle comes fits with autonomous emergency braking (Car-to-Car and Vulnerable Road User and Junction Assist) and a lane support system with lane keep assist (LKA), lane departure warning (LDW) and emergency lane keeping (ELK).

“It’s great to see Hyundai introduce these safety-related upgrades which now elevate the facelifted Palisade to five stars, and we encourage all vehicle brands to continually look for opportunities to improve the safety specification of models as part of their model facelifts,” said ANCAP Chief Executive Officer, Carla Hoorweg.

“Consumers, fleets and mobility service providers prioritise the purchase and use of five-star ANCAP rated vehicles, and this upgrade now sees the Palisade become a purchasing contender for these buyers.”
