TCC Rating
How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.

Quick Take
The 2011 Hyundai Veracruz is spacious and comfortable, though not as sporty or stylistically evolved as the newest competition. Read more »

It has a longer, more elegantly sculpted body than the RX350

Dual chrome exhaust outlets, a rear spoiler and available 18-inch wheels don't impart a sporty appearance as much as they defend against blandness.

The Basics:

Conservative to a fault, the 2011 Hyundai Veracruz crossover represents the point on the age/value equation that the Toyota Highlander had just a few years ago.

It's undeniably handsome, if a bit anonymous, but the Veracruz has an interior that's built almost to Lexus standards for feel and look. It's also a spacious place, at least in the front rows; the third row seat's as proportionally small as the Veracruz is to the bigger crossovers with seven seats (Highlander, Flex and Traverse), and so is the space available when all three rows are taken.

It's awaiting some safety scores, and in its fifth year on the market the Veracruz still awaits factory-installed Bluetooth connectivity, a rearview camera option, and any or all of the high-tech features that define the Flex and now other crossovers, like the Dodge Journey and Durango.

Still, it's a roomy vehicle that's well equipped for its price. If you like the slightly luxurious look, the 2011 Hyundai Veracruz will certainly help you project a luxury image on a leaner budget.


  • Lots of features for base price
  • Handsome cabin
  • Third-row seat is standard


  • Handling is uninspired
  • Cargo space behind third low is lacking
  • Rearward visibility is poor--and there's no rearview camera
