2012 Hyundai Veracruz Features

Features

Infotainment is where the action is, when it comes to standard and optional features. It's a tussle the Hyundai Veracruz is mostly steering clear of, now that it's in its last year or two on sale.

In basic trim, the Veracruz is actually pretty well equipped. A Veracruz GLS comes with standard features like dual-zone climate control; a tilt/telescoping steering wheel; a power driver seat; keyless entry; power windows, locks and mirrors; an AM/FM/CD/XM stereo; a rear washer/wiper; and a third-row seat, which used to be an option. To this model, buyers can add on a Premium trim package that bundles in a power tailgate; a sunroof; auto-dimming rearview mirror; and a universal garage door remote.

Full of features in base trim, the 2012 Hyundai Veracruz doesn't have some of the latest infotainment features found on other crossovers.

For those wanting more luxury in their family crossover, there's the Veracruz Limited. It has all the features of the GLS, plus leather upholstery; automatic climate control; a power front passenger seat; a CD changer and a USB port; 18-inch wheels; power tilt/telescoping steering; a 115-volt power outlet; and a conversation mirror, which tips down so drivers can see just what's going on back there, in the second and third rows.

Hyundai sells a navigation system on the Veracruz Limited. The optional LG system takes the place of the CD changer and USB port, not a happy tradeoff for some buyers. 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.

New this year is an Alpine audio system with satellite and HD radio, streaming radio via Pandora and Bluetooth, a rearview camera, DVD playback and touchscreen navigation--but it's only available on the Limited model. Off the menu entirely are features like in-car Wifi and telematics, which are found on vehicles like the Ford Flex and Explorer, and Dodge Durango.
