This is going to be a long post since there are many people shopping for 3 row cross overs and I wanted to share some info, so TLDR:
I know there are cheaper cars out there however I think I got an excellent deal on a very hard car to get a deal on. On top of that this is in South Florida and this dealer has an eye watering $998 dealer Fee!! No that is not a typo. Despite this I still got a better deal for a limited than I have seen anywhere. I made the deal last night they are delivering it this morning.

Ok now to answer all the questions that are going to be asked.
Why didn’t you get or look at a:
The “loaded” SEL trim for the Palisade: Yes I could have gotten an SEL for cheaper but there are MANY additional features on the limited that we wanted: Dual panel Sunroof, Napa Leather & Ventilated seats front And rear, Digital Instrument cluster, Blind View monitor (this is bad ass), Harmon Kardon Audio, 360 Camera, heads up display and ambient lighting
XC90: This is a nice looking car with a nice interior. I found it small and cramped compared to its competitors inside. Also while deals are out there they tend to be on lower trims and to get anything approaching the features in the Palisade it would be way more expensive than what I got
CX- 9: We currently own a CX-9 The car seems great on the surface however the longer we lived with it the more we hated it. It looks great and has a nice interior but it ages badly and is tiny inside. I am 5-8 and I can not adjust my seat to a comfortable position to drive with a rear facing car set behind me. Also the seats are just hard and uncomfortable
Atlas: Nice and roomy inside but I am not crazy about the exterior and the interior build quality is just cheap looking and feeling.
Telluride: I actually prefer the exterior looks of the Telluride over the Palisade but like the Palisade interior better. However Kia dealers are just going crazy with these. There are very few of them available and they wanted over $800 a month for a top trim model.
Bottom line is I am very happy with this deal and this car. For all the people bashing this car for a high lease price vs. it’s MSRP I say ignore the MSRP. The main difference is Hyundai isn’t inflating their MSRP the way other manufactures do so the lease may not look as good on the surface. Look at what I am paying monthly and the insanely long list of options and tell me where there is a better value?
