The Washington Post pointed to its standard electronic stability control, side and head airbags, front active head restraints, and anti-lock brakes, among other features, while Kelley Blue Book summarized, “The Veracruz performed well enough in government crash tests to receive ratings equal to those of its best competitors.”
Cars.com noted that while the Veracruz is available with power-adjustable pedals and rear parking sensors, a rearview camera, a much appreciated feature for some SUV drivers, isn’t available.
