Pros

Value Writeup

The Hyundai Veracruz takes on the Lexus RX 350 and Nissan Murano, yet offers a feature not ordinarily seen in luxury crossovers this size: a third-row seat. On the flip side, compared to minivans and more mainstream crossover utility vehicles like the Toyota Highlander or Honda Pilot, the Veracruz is smoother and sleeker in design and driving demeanor.


Model Highlights

The Veracruz is available in GLS and Limited models, with or without all-wheel drive. Regardless of the model, all come powered by a 260-horsepower, 3.8L V6 engine, with a 6-speed automatic transmission. The engine has continuously variable valve timing and a variable intake system to help provide responsiveness and efficiency through the rev range. Fuel economy estimates for the Veracruz are as high as 17 mpg city, 22 mpg highway with front-wheel drive.

Overall, the Veracruz has very car-like underpinnings, with MacPherson struts in front and a multi-link setup in back. Its power rack-and-pinion steering system provides good handling and better maneuverability than some other vehicles in this class, too. Versions of the Veracruz with the Intelligent Torque Controlled Coupling All Wheel Drive system are better equipped to get through tough winter conditions, as they have a road-oriented system that not only sends more power to the rear wheels when needed but also includes a button so that the driver can lock a 50/50 torque split to help power through snow or mud.

Both the dashboard design and the driving position of the Veracruz are quite car-like, with comfortable bucket seats in front, a second-row bench to fit three, and a third row good for two. Both the second and third rows are split to choose between passengers and folding for cargo, and the second row slides forward when needed, for easier access and entry to the back row. All Veracruz models get blue backlighting and brushed metal accents, in a nicely trimmed interior that has plenty of soft-touch surfaces. It's also one of the quietest vehicles, either among luxury-brand or mainstream-brand vehicles, thanks to a host of noise-insulation measures, plus passive and active engine mounts to quell vibrations.

The standard sound system in the Veracruz GLS includes 172 watts and six speakers, with three months of XM satellite radio service, while the Limited upgrades to a 314-watt Infinity system with subwoofer and external amp. Both of the systems come with an auxiliary input and a USB port that allows iPod control and song/artist information display.


Model News

For 2012, Hyundai's largest crossover utility vehicle, the Veracruz, gets new standard heated second-row seats in the Limited trim, as well as a newly available Alpine navigation system. All models get a more imposing grille design, plus new 18-inch 'hypersilver' wheels.

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.

Frontal crash test results are valid for 2011 model year vehicles manufactured before July 2, 2010.

Male/Female Dummy Note
Male: Average sized adult male dummy in 35-MPH crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs. Female: Small-sized adult female dummy in 35-mph crash into fixed barrier. Rating is evaluation of injury to head, neck, chest, legs.

Rollover Note
Dynamic (moving) test results (Tip or No Tip) and measured rollover-related properties determine vehicle's risk of rollover in single vehicle crash and its rollover rating. 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.
