Silky smooth power from Hyundai's 3.8L V6; standard three row seating; high bang-for-the-buck quotient.
Hyundai introduced the 2007 Veracruz to complement the smaller Santa Fe. This new crossover is available in both front- and rear-wheel drive, and is powered by the smooth and quiet 3.8L V6 Lambda engine. The Veracruz also has a new six-speed automatic transmission, stability and traction controls, ABS with brake assist and electronic brake force distribution, 17-inch alloy wheels, a rear spoiler, and seven passenger seating.
As is typical of Hyundai vehicles, you also get a lot of equipment you may not expect on the base trim level, such as air conditioning with separate rear controls, (the second- and third-row seats include their own roof-mounted vents), heated power exterior mirrors with puddle lights and turn signal indicators, an AM/FM/CD/MP3 audio system with three months of XM service, audio and cruise controls mounted on the steering wheel, rear privacy glass, remote keyless entry, and power windows, door, and locks. You also get features like a tire pressure monitoring system, a trip computer, and a tilt/telescopic steering wheel. The "Hyundai Hideaway" 50/50 split third-row seat folds flat into the floor. Standard safety items include eight air bags including side curtains for all three rows, and active front head restraints. Hyundai has managed to deliver this much equipment at a starting price of $26,305.
The optional Premium Package on the GLS trim adds a power tilt/slide glass sunroof, power driver seat with power lumbar, heated front seats, leather wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, and backup warning system.
Step up to the midlevel SE trim, and you get such niceties as 18-inch wheels and tires, a roof rack, automatic headlight control, fog lamps, an auto-dimming exterior mirrors, a power driver seat with lumbar control, a tilt/telescopic leather wrapped steering wheel and shifter, and a chilled front center console.
Decide to upgrade to the top level Limited trim, and you add a power tilt/slide sunroof, windshield wiper de-icer, chrome door handles, power tailgate, leather seating with heated front seats, metal door scuff plates, backup warning system, conversation mirror, dual-zone automatic temperature control, and an Infinity premium sound system. The top trim comes in just under $33,000.
A rear seat entertainment system is available on the SE and the Limited trims, while adjustable pedals, memory features, and rain-sensing wipers are items exclusive to the Limited.
Hyundai targeted the Lexus RX350 when it came to noise isolation, utilizing acoustic dampening materials in the doors and around the body. Four layers of padding are used beneath the carpeting, while a steel sheet beneath the engine along with electronically controlled engine mounts hushes power train noises and vibration.
With advanced safety features, a smooth and powerful engine and transmission, pricing starting under $27,000, and plenty of trim levels and option packages to choose from, the new Veracruz will likely end up on everyone's short list of crossover sport utility vehicles to consider.
The Hyundai Veracruz is an all new crossover vehicle for 2007. It sits above the Santa Fe in price, features, and seating rows, and shares the same 3.8L V6 found in the Azera and Entourage. It can be ordered with either front- or all-wheel drive.
As the big brother to the Santa Fe, the base 2007 Hyundai Veracruz comes in at $5,160 higher than its smaller sibling. That extra money buys more sport utility vehicle: 7.3 inches more in the wheelbase, 3.9 inches in width, and 13.4 more inches in overall length. That extra length also allows a standard third row of seating, which is de rigueur in this class of SUV. The Veracruz continues Hyundai's recent success in delivering a vehicle that stands up to competitors that cost as much as $10,000 more.
