Which is bigger – the Hyundai Palisade or Hyundai Santa Fe XL?

The new Hyundai Palisade is larger overall than the new Hyundai Santa Fe XL, but that doesn't mean the latter is lacking for space. These two three-row SUVs are two of the Hyundai brand's largest production models, so while there may be some significant differences in their comparative capacities, the question you'll want to ask yourself is, "Which one is the right size for me and my family?"

Now, the most significant difference in size between the new Hyundai Palisade and the new Hyundai Santa Fe XL is seating capacity. While the new Hyundai Santa Fe XL can comfortably accommodate up to seven passengers, the new Hyundai Palisade has room for up to eight when properly equipped. Now, seating for seven is fine for most families, but if you want room for all your loved ones and maybe even a few friends on the go, the Hyundai Palisade is the clear choice.

Of course, the Hyundai Palisade doesn't just have more seating capacity than the new Hyundai Palisade XL, it's also got more luggage space. The Hyundai Santa Fe XL only has about 80 cubic-feet of cargo space available, while the Hyundai Palisade has 86.4 cubic-feet available. That's enough for an extra piece of luggage or a cooler, so it's perfect if you're planning some long-distance travel.

On the other hand, even though the new Hyundai Santa Fe XL isn't quite as capacious on the inside as the new Hyundai Palisade, there's some benefits to being a bit smaller. For example, the new Hyundai Santa Fe XL is shorter from bumper-to-bumper than the Hyundai Palisade, making it more maneuverable in tight spaces. So, if you spend a lot of time in the city and need to use crowded parking structures or streetside spaces often and you don't need the extra seating the Hyundai Palisade provides, the new Hyundai Santa Fe XL may be perfect for you.

However, the best way to see which of these two SUVs is just the right size for your needs and tastes is to test drive them individually. So, if you're in the neighborhood of our dealership, don't hesitate to bring the family down and take the new Hyundai Palisade and Hyundai Santa Fe XL out for a spin.
