Roomy; luxurious; powerful and efficient.
The Hyundai Azera has received a top-to-bottom redesign for 2012. With a powerful but efficient V6, spacious interior and thoroughly modern styling, Hyundai is looking to win over buyers in the full sized sedan segment. The new Azera is all about not having to compromise. It's powerful but efficient, spacious but good looking and luxurious but value-laden. Being a top-to-bottom redesign, the car is packed with state of the art features and amenities many of which were unavailable on last year's model.
The full-size sedan segment has classically been dominated by American giants like the Ford Crown Victoria and Chevrolet Caprice. The Azera pushes the class even further, offering distinct styling, an advanced powertrain and plenty of luxury features at a competitive price. Trick safety features are also abundant on the 2012 Azera, creating an exceptionally well rounded vehicle.
The interior of the brand new Azera is, first and foremost, a nice place to be. Standard leather seats make a good first impression and a thoroughly modern cockpit furthers this sentiment. Drivers are greeted with a 7-inch LCD screen housing the standard navigation system and backup camera, ambient lighting and 10-way power adjustable heated seats. An electronic auto-dimming mirror with built in HomeLink is also standard on the Azera. Front seat passengers on the other hand can enjoy best in class head and foot room and an 8-way power adjustable seat.
Even rear passengers are given the luxury treatment with heated seats. On warmer days when cooling rather than heating is needed, rear seat passengers can take advantage of the automatic dual zone climate control, rear vents or even the power rear sun shade. In fact Hyundai has gone so far as to offer rear seat passengers side sunshades as well, a first for this segment of vehicles. When not in use the rear side sunshades tuck inconspicuously into the doors. Optional features include cooled front seats, a driver's seat cushion extension and memory features for the seats, steering wheel and mirrors.
In-car entertainment has not been compromised by the abundant levels of luxury available on the Azera. Three months of XM satellite radio come standard on every Azera. For those preferring earthbound sources of audio entertainment, an auxiliary input jack allows playback through all manner of MP3 devices. The standard audio system is a 7-speaker unit, while the optional audio system is a 550-watt Logic 7 audio system with 12 speakers, including an 8-inch subwoofer. Hands free Bluetooth connectivity is also standard with the ability to use the navigation screen to display contacts or playlists while wirelessly streaming audio from supported wireless devices.
Unlike the full-size cars of yesterday, the Azera is more than simply a bevy of features packed into a large and unwieldy package. The Azera is a very modern vehicle. One look at the styling is all it takes to realize this. Dig a little deeper though and things get even more interesting. The Azera features a V6 making a very healthy 293 horsepower. It makes this number with a relatively small 3.3L engine. The advantage of a smaller engine is obviously fuel efficiency where the Azera is rated at 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway-- highly competitive for its class. It is quite simply a modern state of the art engine which takes advantage of the newest technologies available to manufacturers today, including direct injection, continuously variable valve timing, a variable intake system and all aluminum construction.
Hyundai has spent a lot of time and effort on refining the front seats. In addition to being comfortable and luxurious, the seat-back structure has now been optimized to reduce the likelihood of neck injury by an estimated 17 percent over the previous generation Azera. Anti-lock brakes and traction control are standard on the Azera as is an advanced stability control system, which takes advantage of the Hyundai's advanced electronic power steering. Nine airbags surround the occupants including front and rear side impact airbags and an airbag for the driver's knees.
