Colors reflect vehicle safety, ranging from red (not that safe) to green (safer). For reference, a score of 0 implies a 0.15% chance of driver death (13% chance of driver injury) over 15 years, and a score of 100 reflects a 0.016% chance (1.4% chance of driver injury). The 2020 Hyundai Palisade has a score of 87, implying a 0.033% chance of driver death (2.9% chance of injury).

We estimate that the 2020 Hyundai Palisade has a vehicle lifetime fatality chance of 0.0328% and a vehicle lifetime injury chance of 3.7452%, meaning the average driver has a 0.0328% chance of dying in an accident if they drive the car under regular conditions for fifteen years, and a 3.7452% chance of being injured.

Active safety features can substantially reduce the risks of harm to vehicle occupants by preventing severe accidents. An active safety system that is standard on the 2020 Hyundai Palisade is Forward Collision-Avoidance Assist with Pedestrian Detection (FDA-PED). Some safety features are optional on the 2020 Hyundai Palisade--- although they add to the cost, one should consider the benefits of Lane Departure Warning System and Blind-Spot View Monitoring.

Another advanced safety feature --- while not cutting edge --- can still improve vehicle safety. Optional side mirror turn signals can help when you don't see a vehicle in your blind spot, by alerting them to your intention to switch lanes, which allows the other driver to avoid an accident with you.


But it is about as safe as many comparable models.
