Back Seats Ranked 2020 Hyundai Palisade Limited AWD better.
"Third row in 4Runner unusable for any but smallest child. Access really only from the passenger side. Thin hard seats. Third row in Palisade can fit adults, power reclines and provides dedicated USB charging ports. Can be accessed with one button from either side of vehicle. Second row in Palisades roomier and in limited trim are heated and ventilated too."
Family Car Ranked 2020 Hyundai Palisade Limited AWD better.
"Better for distance travel, better warranty, better and more safety technology in places where you will be using its capabilities 97% of the time."
