2011 Hyundai Veracruz GLS SUV

2011 Hyundai Veracruz Review

(3 Stars)  Solid player in the segment

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Hyundai Veracruz was only released a couple years ago in 2008 and it has been a very well accepted new full size model into the Hyundai line up. This full sized sports utility brought some winds of change to the standard styling on Hyundai's in general, no longer would the boxy and over the top curves be the sure sign of a Hyundai. The new sleek looking Veracruz brings a very attractive and aerodynamic body style to Hyundai's lineup that many other models would be quick to follow.

The Veracruz offers over 13 cubic feet of storage when it is has filled its 7 passenger capacity and can offer an 86.8 cubic foot storage room when only the front seats are being occupied. The Veracruz has a 2060 horsepower V-6 engine that uses continuously variable valve timing and a six speed automatic transmission to bring a very sporty and comfortable ride to this sports utility. The interior quality and amazing drivability put the Veracruz in the same class as the Lexus RX 350. However in a direct competition the Hyundai Veracruz definitely comes out victorious.
