Expert Quotes:

“…overall it's nicely executed and features a number of upscale details”

“There's minimal road noise or engine noise, and the exhaust is as mute as Harpo.”
Car and Driver

“The look and finish of the interior was top notch with soft touch surfaces and well located controls.”

Many reviewers noted similarities between the Lexus RX 350 and the Veracruz in the appearance of fine details, and were especially impressed with the materials and the upscale feel of the interior. Kelley Blue Book honed in on the premium details that might otherwise only be seen in luxury-brand vehicles, such as “soft-lined bins and consoles and ambient spotlighting,” and further declared that in a variety of uses, the Veracruz “never failed to impress us as effortless and comfortable.”

MyRide.com said, “the materials are above and beyond what one would expect from a non-luxury brand like Hyundai,” and commended the Veracruz for its quiet ride, except for what it described as “excess wind noise.” Other reviews praised the lack of engine and road noise but didn’t corroborate the wind-noise complaint.

Not everyone was completely beaming, though. Truck Trend lent a more critical eye, as part of a comparison test versus mid-size SUV competitors, and declared that “the leather and vinyl on the seats didn't quite color-match, the silver finish on the center stack doesn't appear all that sturdy, and there were a few misaligned bits of trim.”

Only a couple of reviewers commented that the Veracruz’s price, totaling more than $38,000 for a loaded Limited model, was getting too high for Hyundai, the brand that not too long ago was selling stripped-down economy cars. However, the old worries about resale value with Hyundais are no longer an issue, Kelley Blue Book reports, as the Veracruz is expected to maintain its value just as well as the Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot.


More likely than not, you’ll get more than you expect with the 2008 Hyundai Veracruz.

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.
