The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
Comfortable and spacious, the 2012 Hyundai Veracruz lags in fuel economy, ultimate interior space and to some degree, techno features. One of the best big crossovers for families needing seven-passenger capability, the 2012 Chevy Traverse is spacious and safe, though unexciting.
