Model Highlights

The 2010 Hyundai Veracruz has a very simple lineup; there are just two models, GLS and Limited, and both of those come with a choice of either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive.

A 260-horsepower, 3.8-liter V6 and 6-speed automatic transmission are standard across the entire lineup. The combination is very smooth and responsive, and the transmission includes a manual mode for those who want to select the gears themselves. Fuel economy ratings are 16 mpg city, 23 highway with front-wheel drive and 1 mpg lower in the city with all-wheel drive.

The so-called Torque Controlled Coupling All Wheel Drive system that's offered on the Veracruz is designed for snowy and slick road conditions, rather than off-roading. The system sends more power to the rear wheels only when it's needed, so the effect on mileage is minimal; it also includes an AWD Lock mode for tough mud, sand or deep snow.

The Veracruz also features 7-passenger seating -- the third-row seat stows away into the floor when it's not needed, leaving a flat, low loading floor comparable to those in minivans. And at the far back, there's an additional storage well. Meanwhile the second-row seats fold forward flat, for easy access to the second row or long cargo items, and third-row occupants get their own vents and climate controls.

Safety content is generous in the Veracruz; it features electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, along with front side airbags and side-curtain airbags that cover all three rows of seating.

Base GLS models of the Veracruz have an attractive price, and they're very well-equipped; the GLS includes air conditioning, heated power side mirrors with puddle lamps, a power driver's seat, roof rack rails, leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob, automatic headlamps, cruise control and a trip computer. A Premium Package adds a new LG navigation system, 705-watt Infinity Logic 7 premium audio, memory seats and mirrors, dual-zone climate control, a power-adjustable steering wheel, a power tailgate and a sunroof. At the top of the range, the Limited gets most of those Premium Package extras, plus 18-inch alloys, a windshield wiper deicer, chrome door handles and a 115-volt power outlet, among many extras. The navigation system and premium audio are packaged together as options on the Limited.


Model News

Several features formerly optional on the Veracruz are now standard on it for 2010. Among those are a power driver's seat, backup warning system, roof rack rails, fog lamps, automatic headlamps, and leather-trimmed shift knob and steering wheel. Every all-wheel-drive Veracruz now includes heated front seats.

Important new options on the Veracruz include an LG navigation system and Infinity Logic 7 premium audio system. Also, six new colors join the lineup: Black Noir Pearl, Blue Titanium Mist, Carbon Steal Mist, Driftwood Metallic, Sahara Bronze and Ultra Silver.


Value Writeup

Hyundai targeted the Lexus RX when originally developing the Veracruz, and it shows; the Hyundai crossover offers a higher standard of smoothness, refinement and noise suppression than most shoppers will anticipate. The Veracruz also stands out for its long features list; looking purely at features for the money, the Veracruz is a better deal than most other crossovers. And now with a premium audio system and navigation system available, it's truly competitive with the feature sets of entry luxury vehicles.

Safety-wise, the Veracruz is also a standout, with top scores in all U.S. crash tests.

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).
