An SUV fit for a king, the 2023 Hyundai Palisade is now bigger and better, facelifted approximately nine months following its global debut.

With a marginal increase in prices, the facelift model comes with a raft of styling, equipment and safety updates.

Locally-assembled (CBU), the flagship SUV is offered in four variants, across 2 powertrain options, in either eight- or seven-seater configurations.

Starting with the eight seaters, the 2.2L Diesel Palisade Executive 8 is priced from MYR 368,888, and the 3.8L Petrol Palisade Executive 8 from MYR 378,888.

For the seven seaters, the 2.2L Diesel Palisade Luxury 7 is priced from MYR 389,888, and the 3.8L Petrol Palisade Luxury 7 from MYR 399,888.

All prices are for Peninsular Malaysia, on-the-road excluding insurance, and a standard two-year/50,000 KM warranty. 

Optionally, an extended warranty package (five-year/300,000 KM, three-year service package) priced at MYR 11,000 (petrol variants) and MYR 12,000 (diesel variants) is also offered.

The new Hyundai Palisade stands at 4,995 MM long, 1,975 MM wide, 1,750 MM tall, and with a wheelbase spanning 2,900 MM.

Front View

Post-facelift, it now exudes a slightly longer front overhang (20 MM), while projecting a more upright, and square-cut sporty exterior.

Massive, its new blocky and very imposing gloss black front grille, accompanied by a new lower skid plate trim, commands the entire presence.

Rear View

The rear now sports a shorter overhang (5 MM) to compensate for the front, adorning minimalistic contours, along with a redesigned rear bumper which integrates updated reflectors and a lower skid plate.


The redesigned head lamps are dual LED (low/high projection) units with Daytime Running Lights (DRL).

Tinted and integrated, the indicator lights form a visual extension of the blocks from the grille, while the LED DRLs have been relocated to the outer edges of the bumper and aligned vertically.

Tail Lamps
