Important: Frontal crash test ratings should be compared only among vehicles of similar weight.

The Hyundai Veracruz was introduced in the 2007 model year and is derived from the Hyundai Santa Fe. Frontal ratings are assigned by the Institute based on a test conducted by Hyundai as part of frontal crash test verification.

Injury measures

Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Restraints and dummy kinematics

Dummy movement was well controlled. After the dummy moved forward into the airbag, it rebounded into the seat without its head coming close to any stiff structure that could cause injury.

Side crash test ratings can be compared across vehicle categories.

The Hyundai Veracruz was introduced in the 2007 model year and is derived from the Hyundai Santa Fe.

Injury measures

Driver — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Passenger — Measures taken from the dummy indicate a low risk of any significant injuries in a crash of this severity.

Head protection

Driver — The dummy's head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof.

Passenger — The dummy's head was protected from being hit by any hard structures, including the intruding barrier, by a side curtain airbag that deployed from the roof.
