2012 Hyundai Veracruz Price, Review, Specs, what car reviews, The Veracruz is Hyundai’s midsize crossover which made its debut at the 2007 North American International Auto Show. Hyundai positions the Veracruz as an alternative to luxury crossovers with a starting price less than $30,000. Longer and wider than the Santa Fe, the Veracruz comes standard with three rows of seats for seven passengers. With a solid and smooth stance, the front of the Veracruz houses the Hyundai flying-H logo complemented by wraparound headlights. The rear fascia blends into the sides of the taillights with a rear spoiler and dual chrome exhaust tips for a sporty look.

The 2012 Hyundai Veracruz SUV is unchanged from the 2011 version. The proud lines make it look ready to go anywhere and very pleasing to look at. It has a kind of pent up but relaxed grace. The Veracruz is very good value for money for a large family with all the baggage that entails. There are two editions on sale, the GLS and the limited one. The main differences are all in the engines and performance.

The Hyundai Veracruz SUV is extraordinarily quiet. The aerodynamic design keeps wind noise and drag to a minimum. Airbags on three sides provide a safe cushion in the unlikely event that the stability systems, anti-lock brakes and traction control let you down. The Hyundai Veracruz SUV got full marks in the 2010 crash tests ratings. The third row of seats is comfortable enough for little people but is less roomy than many other crossover vehicles in the same market sector. Eighty Seven cubic feet is a little on the small size for cargo when compared to a full SUV and even many crossovers but with careful loading it can be enough for a family car.

The Hyundai Veracruz SUV will take you and seven friends plus luggage in comfort and at speed on a rural adventure because its driven by a 260 horsepower 3.8L 24-valve, DOHC, V6 engine. Fuel efficiency comes from the Continuously Variable Valve Timing (CVVT) so it as suited to the town as it is the rougher terrain. The six speed automatic transmission, ‘Shiftronic’ pushes the front wheel drive for versatile steering and burns 17 mpg in town.

It also comes in four wheel drive models with slightly worse fuel consumption of 16mpg. The Hyundai Veracruz SUV is stacked with driver servo mechanisms as standard fittings. For example the Bluetooth hands free cell phone interface, AM/FM/XM /CD/MP3 stereo with 6 loudspeakers, USB port and auxiliary plug; ecology conscious CFC-free air con and rear zone adjustors for the two rear rows ventilation ducts. The tilting and telescoping, leather-bound steering wheel with remote speaker system controls empowers the driver to command of the whole of the vehicles internal environment. Front active headrest restraints are a safety feature that prevent whiplash from sudden stops. Heated front seats are a must with leather upholstery in the winter and with such a big car the reverse parking assistant technology keeps the rear end in mint condition.
