The 2010 Hyundai Veracruz has a very simple lineup; there are just two models, GLS and Limited, and both of those come with a choice of either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. A 260-horsepower, 3.8-liter V6 and 6-speed automatic transmission are standard across the entire lineup. The combination is very smooth and responsive, and the transmission includes a manual mode for those who want to select the gears themselves. Fuel economy ratings are 16 mpg city, 23 highway with front-wheel drive and 1 mpg lower in the city with all-wheel drive. The so-called Torque Controlled Coupling All Wheel Drive system that's offered on the Veracruz is designed for snowy and slick road conditions, rather than off-roading. The system sends more power to the rear wheels only when it's needed, so the effect on mileage is minimal; it also includes an AWD Lock mode for tough mud, sand or deep snow. The Veracruz also features 7-passenger seating -- the third-row seat stows away into the floor when it's not needed, leaving a flat, low loading floor comparable to those in minivans. And at the far back, there's an additional storage well. Meanwhile the second-row seats fold forward flat, for easy access to the second row or long cargo items, and third-row occupants get their own vents and climate controls. Safety content is generous in the Veracruz; it features electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, along with front side airbags and side-curtain airbags that cover all three rows of seating. Base GLS models of the Veracruz have an attractive price, and they're very well-equipped; the GLS includes air conditioning, heated power side mirrors with puddle lamps, a power driver's seat, roof rack rails, leather-trimmed steering wheel and shift knob, automatic headlamps, cruise control and a trip computer. A Premium Package adds a new LG navigation system, 705-watt Infinity Logic 7 premium audio, memory seats and mirrors, dual-zone climate control, a power-adjustable steering wheel, a power tailgate and a sunroof. At the top of the range, the Limited gets most of those Premium Package extras, plus 18-inch alloys, a windshield wiper deicer, chrome door handles and a 115-volt power outlet, among many extras. The navigation system and premium audio are packaged together as options on the Limited.
