2007 Hyundai Veracruz : First Pictures & Video !

A couple of days before the official unveiling in the Korean market, Hyundai has given us a few teaser photos of its brand new 2007 Veracruz SUV. I also managed to get the video teaser -sorry about the watermark, where among others; we get to see the prototype during test runs.

Judging from the first pictures, Hyundai-s mid-size SUV design looks like an evolution of the smaller Santa Fe while the interior is full of "Lexus RX" hints. Coincidently, according to Hyundai, the Veracruz will compete primarily with upper midsize crossovers including Honda Pilot, Nissan Murano, Subaru B9 Tribeca and of course, the Lexus RX350.

Equipped with a standard 3.8 liter V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission, Veracruz's standard features include equipment like Hyundai's HideawayTM third-row seat (50/50 split fold-into-the-floor seat, offering flexibility for up to seven passengers), all-wheel drive, standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC), standard side-airbags, as well as side-curtain airbags for all three rows of passengers.

PS: What to do you think about Hyundai's idea with the Key Chain teaser photo down bellow? Don't know about you, but my mind went straight to an older Audi commercial...
