    I used to only buy Toyotas, but more recently I’ve been happy with a pair of Hyundais. If I was in the market for a 7 passenger SUV, I’d consider the Hyundai Palisade, which was just put on sale for the first time a couple of months ago. It’s pretty much the same as the Kia Telluride, but the Kia is more of a sporty looking SUV and the Hyundai is more focused on luxury and convenience. A fully loaded Palisade is $48,000 and has some features that you don’t see on much more expensive cars.

      A 50K hyundai wow.  I agree the korean brands are waaaaay better than decades previous though.  We test drove a genesis several years ago but interior was still somewhat cheap, but the tech was nice and definitely more affordable than similarly loaded competitors.

        Does it justify almost 10k over the kia? Seems pretty steep. Will go check that out.

        Super annoying, both look pretty cool but have small differences in different areas.

          It seems like the Palisade Limited (top end model) is equal in price to the Kia Telluride when you pick the top end model of the Telluride and add all the features that the Pallisade comes with. (Some features that come with the Pallisade are not available on the Telluride.)

          All in all, price is about the same, so it’ll come down to which style you prefer.

            I was wondering the same thing. Although the last two Foresters I have owned have had some nickel and dime annoyances that the previous two did not I find them to be a decent vehicle. Reasonably priced, good gas mileage, decent safety ratings, nice visibility and most important for those who have to go to work in the snow, AWD.

              Palisade has some sweet inside features that would be very useful. Since its basically the same vehicle, have to go for what you'll use, and the power seat down, etc...very nice.

                The danger i that if you decide to sell it in 2-4 years the depreciation will be way, way worse than a Toyota or Honda.

                At 44-50K you are easily in Acura / Lexus ballpark, which hold its value better. The Lexus will also have reliability data measured in decades.

                  I bought Honda/Acura for 30+ years but bought a Hyundai as a third car for kids in 2013.  Has more than 100k on it now. No problems. Much more bang for buck than Honda and I liked the styling better though the Hondas still feel somewhat more solid. My med school classmate bought the first Hyundai Pony in 1985 and it seemed like you could almost see the thing rusting in front of you. I am thinking of a Subaru to replace Odyssey.  DW would like the CrossTrek. Subaru is pretty up there in CR reviews.

                    Kamban-

                    I am wondering this also. If you’re looking to spend $35k+ on a vehicle, why are Kia and Hyundai even in the conversation? What am I missing from the past 15 years of auto history?
