Hyundai Veracruz Auto Insurance Rates

It will cost a typical driver $5,413 to buy car insurance for a Hyundai Veracruz for five years, the National Automobile Dealers Association (NADA) reports.

For drivers who pay annually, this means your premium will be approximately $1,083. The average monthly premium for a 2011 Veracruz will be around $90. This rate is about average compared to the cost of insuring other midsize SUVs.

For instance, Dodge Durango drivers will pay $5,423, which is very similar to the average rate for the Veracruz.

Average automobile insurance rates for the Kia Sorento and the Hyundai Santa Fe are a bit lower than those for the Hyundai Veracruz, since these SUVs are both smaller and a bit less costly overall. Sorento owners will pay about $4,760 for five years’ worth of auto insurance, while Santa Fe drivers will pay about $4,947 over the same time period.

Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, and Mazda CX-9 car insurance rates are all a bit higher than the Veracruz’s, on average. Owners will pay between $5,500 and $5,700 for insurance for five years.

Toyota Venza auto insurance costs about $5,719 for five years, and GMC Acadia car insurance may cost some drivers up to $7,000 for the same length of time.

Hyundai Veracruz Auto Repairs

The NADA expects that Hyundai Veracruz drivers won’t pay anything out of pocket for repairs until the fifth year they own their vehicles.

The expected fifth-year repair bill for this midsize SUV is $1,627. This is the same as the expected repair bill for the Hyundai Santa Fe, and it’s somewhat higher than the anticipated repair bill of $1,500 for the Toyota Venza.

Repair bills for the GMC Acadia are much lower, totaling just $800 over five years.

Hyundai Veracruz Maintenance Costs

Drivers should expect to pay about $133 in maintenance costs the first year they own their Hyundai Veracruz, and $261 the second year. The third-year service will cost about $1,300, according to the NADA, and fourth-year maintenance costs will total about $874.

Maintenance costs during the fifth year of ownership will be much lower, at just $208. This all adds up to a total 5-year maintenance bill of $2,774.

Maintenance bills for the Hyundai Santa Fe will be a bit lower than the Veracruz’s, at $2,596, and the GMC Acadia’s maintenance will cost $3,848 over five years. Toyota Venza owners will pay less than $2,000 to maintain their SUVs for five years.

Hyundai Veracruz Fuel Economy

The Hyundai Veracruz gets 17 city mpg/23 highway mpg, which isn’t bad given that it’s one of the larger members of the midsize SUV class.

While there are plenty of SUVs that get worse fuel economy, like the Ford Flex, the Nissan Pathfinder, and the Mitsubishi Endeavor, the Veracruz’s gas mileage doesn’t put it at the top of its class, either.

Getting 21 city mpg and 29 highway mpg, the Kia Sorento is the most fuel efficient gas-powered SUV. Of course, the only hybrid SUV in this class, the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, gets 28 miles per gallon in both city and highway driving.

Hyundai Veracruz Reliability

The Hyundai Veracruz’s reliability is rated a 6.0 out of 10 by J.D. Power and Associates, which is the most common score among midsize SUVs. However, there are much more reliable vehicles available in this category.

For instance, the Toyota Highlander, the Honda Pilot, and the Ford Flex all earned scores of 8.0, as did Toyota’s 4Runner, Venza, and FJ Cruiser. Both the Ford Explorer and the Subaru Tribeca earned 7.0s.

In 2011, the Veracruz’s initial quality ratings from J.D. Power were “Average.” The 2010 Veracruz also received an “Average” score for initial mechanical quality, and it was rated “Better than Most” for its initial design quality. In 2008, its dependability was also rated “Average.”

Hyundai Veracruz Crash Test Results

The NHTSA gave the 2011 Hyundai Veracruz a 4-star rollover rating out of a highest possible rating of five stars.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rated the Veracruz’s crashworthiness in front and side impacts “Good,” which is the top score. It also earned a score of “Good” in rear impact testing. The IIHS didn’t conduct rollover tests on this vehicle.

2011 Veracruz Safety Features

According to the Washington Post, the Hyundai Veracruz’s crash-mitigation and crash-avoidance equipment is comparable to what’s offered on luxury vehicles.

Electronic stability control and traction control are standard, as are dual-stage front airbags and side curtain airbags for all three rows.

Electronic brake force distribution works with the Veracruz’s anti-lock brakes to maintain the vehicle’s stability, and tire pressure monitoring alerts the driver if the tires aren’t properly inflated.

Emergency brake assist reduces stopping distance by priming the brakes when a possible crash is detected. The Veracruz’s front seats are equipped with head restraints to help prevent whiplash in rear impact crashes.
