NEMPA Names 2021 Hyundai Palisade Best-in-Class Midsize Crossover | Harlingen, TX
This summer, the New England Motor Press Association named the 2021 Hyundai Palisade the Best-in-Class Midsize Crossover. You can test drive the award-winning Hyundai Palisade here at Bert Ogden Hyundai in Harlingen, Texas.
“Once again, Hyundai proves it can deliver upscale design and build quality at an unbeatable price,” said Clifford Atiyeh, NEMPA Vice President. “The Palisade is attracting people in higher income brackets who would have bought an SUV from a traditional luxury brand.”
Hyundai is no stranger to the NEMPA Winter Awards. In fact, four other Hyundai SUVs have earned Best-in-Class titles in recent years.
How the Winners Were Chosen
In evaluating candidates for the Best-in-Class Midsize Crossover, NEMPA members (journalists from the New England region) drove all eligible vehicles during the winter. They were judging each vehicle on its interior and exterior design, capability, and safety even in the toughest conditions. The judges also considered all-weather driving and entertainment features.
Ultimately, the 2021 Hyundai Palisade proved to be the superior vehicle in the midsize crossover segment.
