The Hyundai Veracruz (Korean: 현대 베라크루즈, aka Hyundai ix55 in Europe and Russia) is a crossover SUV produced by Hyundai from 2006. Veracruz was sold in the United States, Canada, South Korea, China, Dominican Republic, Brazil, and the Middle East.
The official date of unveiling in South Korea was October 12, 2006, and was made available in the United States as a 2007 model. The Veracruz went on sale in March 2007 and is Hyundai's largest crossover SUV. It replaced the truck-based Terracan that was sold worldwide except for North America. The Veracruz is built on a Sonata platform. The revamped Veracruz in 2011 will be on the same platform as the Kia Sorento
The Veracruz gets its name from a state in Mexico, continuing the Western theme from the small Tucson SUV and mid-size Santa Fe SUV. Powering the Veracruz is a 3.8 L 263 hp (196 kW) V6 engine with an Aisin sourced 6-speed Shiftronic Automatic transmission.
In Europe was sold only with 3.0 L CRDI V6 diesel S-Line engine with Variable geometry turbocharger and 240 hp (180 kW). In 2008, the Veracruz was also sold in some European countries as the ix55.
The IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) said crash results indicated, "... a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity" which is the highest result possible. The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) found similar results when they tested the Veracruz, awarding it five stars after its frontal crash test for both passenger and driver and in the side impact event. On November 15, 2007 the IIHS declared Veracruz vehicles built after August 2007 a Best Safety Pick for side, rear, and frontal impact protection.
