2020 Hyundai Palisade Earns Red Dot Award for Design Excellence

It hasn’t even hit our lot yet here at Pohanka Hyundai of Salisbury on the Delmarva Peninsula, but the 2020 Hyundai Palisade is already bringing home the gold. More specifically, the 2020 Hyundai Palisade recently earned the Red Dot Award for Design Excellence, cementing its place as the most stylish, most unique, and most visually-stunning new model out there – even if it won’t actually be “out there” until sometime this summer. So, let’s check out what Hyundai did to help the 2020 Palisade bring home this prestigious award.


What Makes the 2020 Hyundai Palisade Lineup at Pohanka Hyundai of Salisbury on the Eastern Shore of Maryland So Stylish?

Thanks to it being a new-generation SUV, the all-new 2020 Hyundai Palisade was engineered using the brand’s “Sensuous Sportiness” design concept, which, according to Hyundai, harmonizes the fundamental design elements of proportion, architecture, styling and technology, thereby creating synergy between aesthetics and performance.” In case you’re wondering what all of that means, let’s check in with two of Hyundai’s top designers.

“This award recognizes the fantastic cooperation of Hyundai’s talented designers around the world. The Palisade is the result of an intercontinental collaboration between the diverse Hyundai Design centers throughout the world, which has allowed the tailoring of design to fit the needs of each specific market, rather than imposing the same design globally.” – Luc Donckerwolke, Executive Vice President and Chief Design Officer of the Hyundai Motor Group

“Palisade is the first key product in the Hyundai SUV line-up and epitomizes the new Hyundai Look. Like the double-sided playing card, Palisade’s exterior and interior spaces stand in stark contrast to one another, but together harmonize perfectly. The exterior contour exudes a masculine, monumental air accentuated by vertical lines, while the interior decor imparts a comfortable, classy feel with horizontal trimmings.” – SangYup Lee, Senior Vice President and Head of the Hyundai Global Design Center

5 Steps To Getting Your Car Ready For Spring

It’s that time of year! Break out the dust pans and broomsticks because spring is in the air and spring cleaning is on the agenda. While you’re preparing for the sunnier season don’t forget to prepare your car for the new weather as well. Here are some tips on how to get your car all ready for spring!


Wash Your Car and Get It Detailed

Spring is the ideal time to give your car a thorough cleaning both inside and out. Getting your ride washed, waxed, buffed and polished can really give your car a face lift after dealing with snow, ice, salt and more during those harsh winter months. Don’t just settle for your car looking better, make sure it feels better too. Bring your car back to showroom condition by having the interior vacuumed, shampooed and having the leather and plastic surfaces treated. A detail also gets all of the dirt and crumbs out of those hard to reach places.


Touch Up Paint and Small Dents

For minor dings and chips purchase some automotive touch up paint and carefully fill in all the scuffs and scratches. It won’t be a professional job but it will prevent rust from attaching itself to your sheet metal.

If you have some more substantial damage to your vehicle make a visit to your service department or local body shop. Different repairs have different prices but to keep your car in fair cosmetic condition it is worth an occasional visit to a professional. Having a car in good condition makes it easier to sell down the line and if your interested in an upgrade bring it to your dealer service center;  they can give you a trade in quote before you pay to have any work done!


Check Your Oil & Tire Pressure

These are routine procedure that every driver should keep up with but when life gets busy they are the last things on your mind. Be sure that you are checking your oil frequently and getting it changed according to your manufacturer standards. Getting your oil changed when needed is a easy and effective way to keeping your car in top performing condition while letting your oil get too low can cause detrimental damage to your vehicle.

Be cautious of wear on your tires after the winter months. The start of spring is the ideal time to make sure your tires are properly inflated, your spare tire included. It is also a fantastic time to have your tires rotated and balanced to make sure you are getting the maximum life span from each tire.


Invest in New Floor Mats

Winter is a very harsh time for your floor mats, especially if they are made of typical carpet. Spring is a great time to evaluate your floor mats and see if they need replaced. Some drivers even upgrade their floor mats from carpet to rubber or synthetic materials. These are easier to clean and don’t allow dirt, mud, water and more to get to your cars carpeting.


Clean Out Your Glove Compartment

First off, when cleaning out your glove compartment make sure that all important documents are where they need to be. Know where your insurance information is as well as your vehicle’s registration and owners manual. Clean out all of the un necessary papers and receipts that accumulate in your glove compartment over time time make sure these documents are easily accessible.

The glove compartment is also a great place to keep contact information from your local dealership and mechanic as well as any service coupons you acquire. It would also be a good idea to keep a tire gauge and pair of work gloves in there in case you need them while on the road.


If you follow these five steps you and your ride are ready for spring! Enjoy the sunshine and drive safe.
