Pre-Release Action: Hyundai Veracruz

Hyundai's set to reveal its seven-passenger Veracruz crossover to the Korean market (and thus, the world), but Carscoop got there first. The site scored some leaked shots of the new Hyundai people-mover ahead of its official introduction this week. As has been reported, the Veracruz will get Hyundai's 3.8 liter V6 engine hooked to six-speed automatic transmission, and come equipped with Hyundai's answer to Stow-n-Go, the "Hideaway(TM ) third-row seat — a 50/50 split fold-into-the-floor seat — along with all-wheel drive, Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and side and side-curtain airbags for all three rows of passengers. Let the inevitable Lexus RX350 comparisons begin.
