CHICAGO, Feb. 9, 2023 – Hyundai’s enhanced 2023 Palisade has been named Family Vehicle of the Year by the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA) at the Chicago Auto Show’s opening event. The Palisade stood out for its fresh exterior and new available convenience technologies including a 12-inch navigation, WiFi hotspot, Digital Key 2 Touch, new Bluelink® features and driver’s ergo motion seat. Many vehicles were evaluated at drive programs by MAMA members throughout the 2022 year.

“The Palisade continues to impress with its family-friendly capabilities and new driver assistant technologies,” said Ricky Lao, director, product planning, Hyundai Motor North America. “The Palisade’s enhanced Forward Collision Avoidance, Highway Drive Assist and Remote Smart Parking Assist reinforce Hyundai’s commitment to safety.”
