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

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. Only a couple of reviewers comment that the Veracruz’s price, totaling more than $38,000 for a loaded Limited model, is too high for Hyundai.

Kelley Blue Book also hones 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 declares that in a variety of uses, the Veracruz “never failed to impress us as effortless and comfortable.” Other reviewers note similarities between the Lexus RX 350 and the Veracruz in the appearance of fine details and are especially impressed with the materials and the upscale feel of the interior.

“The materials are above and beyond what one would expect from a non-luxury brand like Hyundai,” says MyRide.com, which commends the Veracruz for its quiet ride, except for what it describes as “excess wind noise.” Other reviews praise the lack of engine and road noise but don’t corroborate the wind-noise complaint.

Truck Trend, however, lends a more critical eye, as part of a comparison test versus mid-size SUV competitors and points out 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.”

TheCarConnection.com notes that the Veracruz isn’t in its element even on unpaved roads, where the ride is harsh, nor is it configured for extensive off-roading.

Conclusion

With the 2009 Hyundai Veracruz, you’ll get more than you expect and a quiet, refined experience.

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.
