Hyundai Veracruz Gets Kbb Honors

By: Anthony Fontanelle

Put your hands together for the 2008 Hyundai Veracruz.

Yes, this new vehicle model which just hit the automotive industry last year has been given an accolade by automotive industry expert Kelley Blue Book. The group had given the 2008 Hyundai Veracruz a spot in its Best New Family Vehicles list.

Choosing the vehicles that would be part of the list was no easy task, the editors of KBB had disclosed through The Auto Channel. They had to go through quite a list of vehicles which were exemplary and had the features that could bring them straight right up the list. However, the editors still had to choose vehicles based on criteria. Is the vehicle safe? Does it have enough space inside? Is it priced too much? How about its resale value? How good is its fuel efficiency? What is the vehicle capable of doing? Would it be dangerous for children? These are the criteria that the editors worked with to find the best vehicles to make the list.

KBB's executive editorial director as well as executive market analyst Jack R. Nerad shared his thoughts about the Hyundai Veracruz: "If you're intrigued by the idea of treating your family to premium accommodations at mass-market prices, you'll want to check out the seven-passenger Veracruz mid-size crossover. The quiet, comfortable, well-appointed Veracruz starts just under $28,000, offers a long list of desirable options and is backed by a reassuringly comprehensive warranty that includes 100,000-mile powertrain coverage and five-year, 24-hour roadside assistance."

The 2008 Hyundai Veracruz is a midsized crossover sport utility vehicle which is currently being sold in quite a few car markets. It has the capacity to take in seven passengers comfortably and for 2008, it now comes with a new navigation system manufactured by LG. The vehicle has been made to be friendly to users and to other automotive products available in the market so much so that you can use a with it. You also do get an AM/FM/XM Satellite radio and a CD/MP3 audio player with the vehicle to accompany you during long drives.

As per safety, the vehicle is equipped with the Electronic Stability Control and has six air bags that come with side air curtains. All three rows of seats have these airbags and side curtains so much so that in cases of untoward incidents everybody's protected well.
