Pros

Silky smooth power from Hyundai's 3.8L V6; standard three row seating; high bang-for-the-buck quotient.


Model Highlights

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.


Model News

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.


Value Writeup

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.

Summary
Hyundai Motor Company (Hyundai) is recalling certain model year 2007-2012 Veracruz vehicles manufactured from December 26, 2006, through July 24, 2012. The affected vehicles may experience an oil leak from the front cylinder bank valve cover gasket. If there is a sufficient amount of oil dropped onto the alternator, the alternator will be damaged causing the charging system to become inoperative.

Consequence
If the alternator is damaged, the charging system warning lamp in the instrument cluster will illuminate, and the engine will lose power and the vehicle will eventually stop operating while being driven. An unexpected failure of motive power while driving increases the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will inspect/repair or replace the alternator and the front valve cover gasket, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of September 2014. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai's number for this recall is 121.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
