2008 Hyundai Veracruz GLS 3.8 gas from North America
Hyundai has brought well built luxury to the masses, and is scaring the competition with good reason
Nothing wrong so far.
This vehicle handles very well, surprising for a vehicle of this size, is very plush, smooth ride unless the bumps are very large or deep potholes. Very quiet ride. Tight turning, light steering.
Interior is as classy as any of the competitors, and outclasses all the North American offerings in this class, and is very close to being on par with the Lexus 350, with some minor differences being the faux wood instead of real wood. Outshines the Lexus and ALL competition with how quiet it is in the cabin.
Comfort is among the top of the class, with great seating room in all 3 rows, the leather is very nice and upscale. Great amenities.
Performance is as strong as anyone needs in a vehicle this size, with plenty of go for passing. Fuel economy is average for the class, and could be better. I average 12L/100km or about 22-23 miles/Imperial gallon in combined city/highway driving and get about 10-11/100km or 26mpg driving at 110km/hr on the highway.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
