Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Vehicle Overview Though Hyundai likes to compare the Veracruz crossover to luxury models like the Lexus RX 350, shoppers will likely size it against less expensive offerings like the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander. The Veracruz seats seven in three rows and has numerous standard safety features, including stability control. The base GLS and upper-crust Limited are the two trim levels offered, and a 3.8-liter V-6 is standard. All-wheel drive is optional.
New for 2010 The base GLS gains more standard features, including a power driver's seat, rear parking sensors, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, and automatic headlights. New GLS options include a navigation system and an Infinity Logic 7 stereo. Six new colors are also available.
Exterior Swooping curves and two-tone bodywork define the Veracruz, which emulates styling themes set by Hyundai's other crossovers, like the Santa Fe.
