In the sales war among big crossovers, infotainment features are the latest battle--and it's a battle the Veracruz largely is sitting out.
The Veracruz doesn't lack for standard equipment. The GLS model has a power driver seat; a tilt/telescoping steering wheel; dual-zone climate control; power windows, locks and mirrors; keyless entry; a rear washer/wiper; an AM/FM/CD/XM stereo; and a standard third-row seat.
A Premium package on this trim level adds a power sunroof; a power tailgate; a universal garage door remote; and auto-dimming rearview mirrors.
The Veracruz Limited adds on much more. Leather upholstery is standard; so is a power front passenger seat; 18-inch wheels; automatic climate control; a CD changer and a USB port; a 115-volt power outlet; power control for the steering wheel; and a conversation mirror, which helps drivers keep an eye on the action in the second and third rows.
An LG navigation system is an option on the Limited, but it means sacrificing the CD changer and USB port. A Bluetooth connection is a port-installed option, which means it doesn't have the neat integration with audio systems that a factory system would have--so test it out to see if it meets your needs.
