The Veracruz is Hyundai's largest vehicle. It's a 7-seat crossover SUV, available in front- or all-wheel drive, that features a large amount of cargo capacity and a long list of standard safety features. The 2011 model is mainly a carryover from the previous year, with some readjustments of the packaged and stand-alone options.

The 2011 Hyundai Veracruz is available in two trim levels: GLS and Limited. The Veracruz GLS features 17-inch alloy wheels, cruise control, air conditioning with rear climate controls and vents, 6-speaker stereo with satellite radio and CD player, rear parking sensors, automatic headlights, and fog lights. The Premium package of options includes a sunroof and more power features, plus a 10-speaker Infinity sound system, navigation system and other upgrades. Bluetooth connectivity is another option. The Limited trim includes most of the Premium features as well as 18-inch wheels, leather upholstery, and other enhancements. The Limited trim also offers an optional navigation system, packaged with a premium Infinity sound system. With all seats up, the Veracruz has 13.4 cubic feet of cargo space, according to Hyundai. However, its third-row seats fold flat to the floor, and when cargo space is maximized, it totals 86.8 cubic feet.

The 2011 Hyundai Veracruz's standard power plant is a 260-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 engine that delivers 17 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway with front-wheel drive, according to the EPA. A 6-speed automatic transmission is standard.

Standard safety features on the 2011 Hyundai Veracruz include anti-lock disc brakes, stability control, traction control, active front head restraints, seat belt pre-tensioners, front side air bags, and side curtain air bags. In government crash tests, the NHTSA gave the Veracruz five stars (out of five) in frontal- and side-impact crash tests. In private testing, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the Veracruz \"Good\" ratings in its frontal-offset and side-impact crash tests.

Starting MSRP for the 2011 Hyundai Veracruz is $28,145.
