Hyundai Palisade interior design wins Wards award

DUBAI, October 8, 2019

Hyundai Motor’s recently introduced, all-new Palisade SUV was awarded one of Wards 10 Best User Experiences during the annual WardsAuto User Experiences Conference in Novi in the US state of Michigan.

The Hyundai Palisade, through consideration of user-oriented interior design and engineering innovation, not only redefined convenience features, but also revamped the concept of spatial design for family cars, placing it on the competitive 2019 Wards 10 Best User Experiences list.

In contrast to its exterior, the horizontally expansive interior gives off a roomy and safe atmosphere. Through the luxurious, yet intuitive design, a more relaxed and comfortable user experience was realized.

The honour evaluates the user-friendliness of the driver-assist technologies, access to information and entertainment options without driver distraction. The well-equipped Palisade was acknowledged for its host of convenient technology features including a 10-inch navigation display, 12-inch TFT cluster, wireless charging, seven USB outlets, second-row ventilated seats and innovative roof-based diffuser vents – making it easy for both driver and passengers to interact with the vehicle.

“The Palisade not only accentuates the luxurious aspect of a large-size SUV, but is a vehicle that was designed in the true perspective of the customer, through careful consideration of what more values can be provided,” said SangYup Lee, senior vice president and head of Hyundai Global Design Center. “We implemented a design for the Palisade that offers a home-like ‘spatial experience’ where various innovative and smart technologies can be enjoyed.”

The Wards evaluation noted the infotainment screen, instrument panel and head-up display were well designed featuring user-friendly controls with easily comprehended information by just a glance. An additional attribute per Wards included the home screen “widgets” on the 10.25-in. (26-cm) in-dash infotainment screen able to be selected and rearranged to suit the driver’s preference.

The Wards 10 Best User Experiences competition is a microcosm of Wards 10 Best Interiors and was developed to identify driver interfaces that are user-friendly, navigation systems that are easy to program, collision-avoidance technologies that are dependable and smartphone integration that is simple, allowing drivers safe access to text messages, emails and phone contacts while on the road.

“The new Hyundai Palisade stands out as a value leader in the three-row utility segment with smartly-designed, user-friendly displays and controls up front and tons of family-friendly connectivity features and creature comforts in back,” said Drew Winter, Wards senior content director.

“A long list of available driver-assist features, charging outlets in all three rows of seats and innovative technology such as an intercom system that enables the driver to speak with third-row passengers, means the Palisade is ready anytime to take a family on a long trip.” – TradeArabia News Service
