The 2025 Hyundai Palisade is set to wear a bolder, boxier body than the current car, while featuring an interior with an upscale look.

    Images uploaded to South Korean motoring forum New Car Scoops by an anonymous user show the second row of the new Hyundai Palisade, with completely revised door cards, hard-backed front seats and overhauled captain’s chairs for middle row passengers.

    Previous spy shots have shown a redesigned front row, with the digital instrument cluster and infotainment touchscreen situated in a wide assembly.

    Bucking the trend for free-standing screens, the assembly is more neatly integrated within the dash, which features prominent stitching elements.

    There’s also a new centre console with USB-C outlets – bringing it closer in design to the brand’s loniq 5 electric SUV.

    The new photos also give us another look at the new-generation Palisade’s exterior, which is boxier and sharper than the current model.

    This is clear when looking at the curves of the bonnet and the top of the A-pillar, which is now far more angular rather than rounded-off.

    As previously reported, the new-gen Palisade is expected to adopt a pair of turbo-petrol engines to replace the existing SUV’s 2.2-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel and 3.8-litre V6 petrol engines.

    The smaller engine will reportedly be a 2.5-litre four-cylinder which is expected to be mated to a hybrid system, while the larger unit is a turbocharged 3.5-litre V6.

    Hyundai’s new second-generation Palisade is expected to be unveiled before the end of the year.
