2011 Hyundai Veracruz Overview.

Hyundai’s full-size SUV, the Veracruz falls into the affordable midsize SUV category but is meant to compete with luxury giants like Lexus and Acura. For South Korean automaker Hyundai, the Veracruz scores at a yet another courageous step hike in price, quality, and performance.

With a starting price of just above $28,000, the 2011 Hyundai Veracruz is costly for a Hyundai.  Except, when you compare it to other seven-passenger midsize SUVs in its class, the Veracruz starts to look to be of better value.

The 2011 Hyundai Veracruz moves up with the all the luxurious attributes more universally linked with entry-level luxury models than a model built to a price point. The ride quality continues to be composed in most conditions, and its 260-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 is up for whatever task comes its way. With its comparatively low levels of wind and road noise, the Veracruz also shows off one of the most peaceful cabins in its segment.

Even though its exterior styling is somewhat standard, the Veracruz does brag an expensive interior, with well build quality and nice touches like wood trim and an available two-tone color scheme to provide visual elegance. The pact is further appealing owing to Veracruz's long warranty and drawn out list of standard features.

Even as the 2011 Hyundai Veracruz has everything going well, it isn’t flawless. Test drivers complain about numb steering and performance that prioritizes comfort over sharp handling.

Despite the fact that Veracruz is a good value, the Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia offer more comfortable seating and versatile better performance, given that you can digest their higher prices.

If your budget is a priority, check out the Toyota Highlander and the Honda Pilot. Both have three available rows of seating. The Highlander gets much improved fuel economy than the Veracruz does and has a lower starting price. The Pilot has three sets of LATCH connecters in the second row a major plus for families with three kids in car seats and costs about the same as the Veracruz.  Though, neither the Highlander nor the Pilot can match the Veracruz’s warranty, long list of standard features or upscale interior.

Reliability

The Veracruz is covered by numerous viable warranties that are among the lengthiest in the class. These include a five-year or 60,000-mile basic warranty, 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty and five-year roadside assistance.

The warranty period starts either on the date of first retail sale, or the date the vehicle is first placed in service as an instructor, service loaner or company vehicle, whichever is earlier. Plus from that moment on, your Hyundai Veracruz is looked after during the coverage period, not considering of whether you're the first owner or a subsequent owner.

Overall Impression

The 2011 Hyundai Veracruz moves up with the all the luxurious attributes more universally linked with entry-level luxury models than a model built to a price point. For less than half the price of equally equipped luxury SUVs, drivers can have a fashionable SUV with an exceptionally comfortable and high-quality interior. The Veracruz is safe, well-appointed, quiet, and offers one of the most competitive warranties on the market. On the other hand, the performance of the 2011 Veracruz is expected, the third-row seats are confined, and the cargo space is almost missing when then third row is in use. The Veracruz is a realistic and pleasurable SUV that's an affordable alternative to the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander.

2011 Hyundai Veracruz Pros:

  • Upscale, quiet interior
  • Lots of standard features
  • Longer powertrain warranty than most competitors

2011 Hyundai Veracruz Cons:

  • Dull handling
  • Numb steering
  • Little cargo room with third row in use
