Advantages of the 2020 Hyundai Palisade

The starting MSRP of both the Hyundai Palisade and the Subaru Ascent are similar but the Palisade gives the better deal for its drivers. The engine on the Palisade is much stronger than the engine on the Ascent. It’s important to note that every trim level gets the same engine on both vehicles, so the choice there should be an easy one!

Regarding the transmissions, the Ascent has a CVT transmission while the Palisade is automatic. As a CVT transmission takes away the feeling of the gears shifting, it can make for a rather boring experience as many drivers love to hear the gears. As the Palisade keeps the gears, it can create an engaging experience for its drivers. Finally, the maximum cargo space for both the Hyundai Palisade and the Subaru Ascent are nearly identical.
