About the Hyundai Veracruz
When the crossover SUV market began to take off in the late 2000s, the American market saw an explosion of crossover offerings. Many manufacturers began offering their own crossover models, including Hyundai's Veracruz. This midsize luxury-oriented midsize crossover offers seating for seven passengers, and seats can be folded down to maximize cargo space at up to 87 cubic feet. Meanwhile, its standard 3.8L V6 engine offers plenty of power when you need it, and standard features on its 2012 model include rear parking sensors, heated front seats, and a six-speaker sound system.
Produced from 2007-2012 before being replaced by the Hyundai Santa Fe, the Veracruz offers a smooth and enjoyable ride in a sleek package. This SUV can be an excellent choice for growing families who need extra space but don't want to sacrifice style or indulgent features in the process.

Excellent value, good utility.
We bought this vehicle for a family of 5 to replace an aging minivan. Comes with lots of geegaws, which my wife loves, but some trim bits are coming off. Feels solidly built excepting the 'clink' of the rear doors when closed. Steering feel is typical Hyundai vague but my wife likes that. Visibility is outstanding. Engine has plenty of power and MPG is close to claims.
- Value: Luxury car addons
- Interior Space: Feel huge inside! Seats 7 in comfort.
- Visibility: Commanding view of the road
- Seat Comfort: Seating is almost bench-like
