The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2010 Hyundai Veracruz doesn’t stand as a common-sense bargain like some of the brand’s other vehicles, but it’s spacious and comfortable. The 2008 Mazda CX-9 may be the best-driving full-size seven-passenger crossover out there. It is certainly one of the best looking and appointed.
