2012 Hyundai Veracruz Overview
With seating for seven and a host of nifty features at an affordable price, the 2012 Hyundai Veracruz crossover provides tremendous value.
New available features include 18-inch alloy wheels, a revised grille, heated second-row seats, and an Alpine navigation system. The 2012 Hyundai Veracruz is available in two trims: GLS and Limited, which share a 260-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 that is paired to a six-speed automatic transmission with auto-manual mode. All-wheel drive uses a lock mode that splits torque 50:50 to front and rear axels at low speeds and is optional. Fuel economy ratings could be better at 16-17 mpg in the city and 21-22 on the highway. Competition in the crossover segment includes the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander, while Hyundai likes to compare the Veracruz to the Lexus RX 350.
The 2012 Hyundai Veracruz crossover features a large black air dam, 17-inch aluminum alloy wheels, a sculpted hood, three-beam projector-style halogen headlights, heated power side mirrors with turn-signal indicators and approach lights, chrome window and grille surrounds, a moonroof, and power liftgate.
The interior of the 2012 Hyundai Veracruz features front bucket seats, a three-person second row (which slides forward to access the third row) and a two-person third row. If you want to kick everyone out and fold down the seats to maximize cargo volume, know that the Veracruz has 40 cubic feet of space behind the second row and 86.8 cubic-feet behind the front seats. Leather seating surfaces, eight-way power driver seat, heated front and second-row seats, an eight-speaker Infinity audio system, dual front automatic temperature controls, wood accents, and second-row climate control are available. When it comes to tech features, Bluetooth® connectivity, iPod/USB ports, and the aforementioned seven-inch touch-screen Alpine navigation system with a 10-speaker, 605-watt audio system round out the impressive interior features.
Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes, side-impact airbags for the front seats, side curtain airbags for all three rows, active front head restraints and an electronic stability system and traction control all come standard in the 2012 Hyundai Veracruz.
