2021 Hyundai Palisade Calligraphy: Luxury in disguise

This three-row crossover may be built by a mainstream brand, but it feels like something from a much more prestigious automaker.

Craig Cole
Craig brought 15 years of automotive journalism experience to the Cars team. A lifelong resident of Michigan, he's as happy with a wrench or welding gun in hand as he is in front of the camera or behind a keyboard. When not hosting videos or cranking out features and reviews, he's probably out in the garage working on one of his project cars. He's fully restored a 1936 Ford V8 sedan and then turned to resurrecting another flathead-powered relic, a '51 Ford Crestliner. Craig has been a proud member of the Automotive Press Association (APA) and the Midwest Automotive Media Association (MAMA).

Calligraphy models gain a new grille texture that makes the front end look slightly less massive.

Yep, these second-row seats are every bit as comfortable as they look.

There's no shortage of cargo space when all the back seats are folded down.
