The Preferred package includes a power sunroof, power driver seat, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, reverse sonar, 115-volt power outlet, automatic headlights, fog lamps, temperature-controlled center console storage. The Premium package offers all the contents of the Preferred package, but adds leather seat trim, power tailgate, auto-dimming rearview mirror, HomeLink universal garage door opener, compass and 18" alloy wheels.

Special features for 2009

When designing the Veracruz, Hyundai used the popular Lexus RX luxury SUV as a target. As a result, the Hyundai crossover offers a higher standard of smoothness, refinement and noise suppression than most shoppers will expect. The Veracruz also stands out for its long features list; from features-for-the-money point of view, the Veracruz is an excellent deal compared to most other crossovers. And with a premium audio system and navigation system available, it's truly competitive with the feature sets of entry luxury vehicles.
The 2009 Hyundai Veracruz, a four-door seven-passenger crossover, is available with two trims. The GLS and Limited both come with a 3.8-liter V6 that produces 260 hp from a 6-speed automatic transmission. EPA-estimated fuel economy is rated at 15 city/22 highway for the GLS and slightly higher for the Limited at 16 city/23 highway. Front, side and curtain airbags, backup warning system and a USB port are just some of the many standard features.
