The 2020 Hyundai Palisade continues to impress, offering the brand’s value proposition along with handsome styling, a lovely interior, and a cushy, quiet ride. At the same time, performance is merely adequate, fuel economy is only average, the Limited trim is pricey, and the infotainment system is menu-dense.
In addition to narrowing the choice of engines, the 2020 Toyota Tundra enters the model year with an expanded TRD Pro lineup, upgraded infotainment systems, and a wide range of advanced safety features. But it remains fettered by an aging exterior, dour cabin, average safety scores, the lack of a diesel option, and abysmal fuel economy.
Tweaked slightly from last year, the 2020 Hyundai Kona retains its value proposition by offering an above average ride, reasonable fuel economy, a class-above interior, and a number of advanced safety features across all models. But it disappoints with fussy styling details, modest performance, and an upper trim with a price that’s comparable to much larger crossovers.
Unchanged a year following a complete redesign, the 2020 Toyota Avalon Hybrid retains a sleek design, smooth ride, standard advanced safety systems, and impressive fuel economy. At the same time, steering is numb, the engine sounds ragged when hustled, the large grille overpowers the sleek design, while rear cross-traffic alert is only available as part of an expensive option package on the top-trim Limited.
