Powered by V6 engines driving the front wheels, the Hyundai Azera competes well in its class in terms of styling, creature comforts, and safety features, at a lower price.
Introduced as an all-new model for the 2009 model year, the Hyundai Azera received a very mild refresh for 2009 that included a revised grille, improved interior accents, and changes to the steering and suspension setup. For 2010, the Hyundai Azera Limited adds a power tilt and telescopic steering-wheel, an integrated memory system, premium door sill scuff plates, and a woodgrain steering wheel and door pulls as standard equipment.
Azera's powertrain uses the latest technology. Both available V6 engines feature variable valve timing for low emissions and a broad power curve; while the standard five-speed automatic gearbox gives the driver the option of shifting semi-manually. These are features that compete with Lexus, Infiniti and Acura. While there's nothing especially striking in Azera's design or styling, take off the Hyundai badge, and it could pass as family among any of the top-rated Japanese nameplates.
Inside, fit and finish are first rate, with quality materials and assembly. There's a quiet elegance in the simplicity of the instruments, usability of the controls and sleekness of design. What isn't readily visible received the same attention as what is, with hardware studiously hidden away and storage bins fully finished. All is not perfection: Some of the faux leather feels more plastic than bovine. But the overall presentation is upscale.
