The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Hyundai Veracruz is spacious and comfortable, though not as sporty or stylistically evolved as the newest competition. The 2011 Mazda CX-9 can carry seven in comfort, but it loves curves more than almost any other roomy crossover.
