2009 Hyundai Veracruz Safety

9.0
Safety

The Hyundai Veracruz receives a Good rating in all of the crash tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS)—including its seat-based rear-impact test, which gauges whiplash protection. The Veracruz also achieves a top five-star rating in all of the federal government's frontal and side crash tests.

Kelley Blue Book summarizes, “The Veracruz performed well enough in government crash tests to receive ratings equal to those of its best competitors.” Cars.com notes 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.

Safety tests confirm that the 2009 Hyundai Veracruz is one of the top picks in its class.

The Washington Post points to its standard electronic stability control, side and head airbags, front active head restraints, and anti-lock brakes, among other features.
