2013 Hyundai Azera Sedan

2013 Hyundai Azera Review

(0 Stars)  Hyundai’s posh mid-sizer.

New For 2013
Nothing—because everything was new last spring.
Overview
All-new in spring 2012, the Azera is staged to take a sizable bite out of the market share of cars like the Ford Taurus, the Nissan Maxima, and the Buick LaCrosse. The traditional slowest-selling Hyundai—it slots between the Sonata and the Genesis—recently got the full attention of the company’s able engineers and designers, and it follows the swoopy design themes of the Sonata, the Elantra, and the Accent. Only one trim level is available, and it’s loaded—as it should be for a starting price of about $33,000. Standard leather upholstery is sweetened by seat heaters for all four outboard positions. Touch-screen navigation, a backup camera, Bluetooth, and dual-zone automatic climate control are also standard. The only option is the $4000 technology package, which includes a panoramic moonroof, xenon headlights, nineteen-inch wheels, ventilated front seats, rear sunshades, and a powerful Infinity stereo. There’s only one engine (previously there were two), but it offers 10 more hp and better mileage than the previous top engine. A six-speed automatic transmission remains standard. The Azera is no sports car, but it’s comfortable and spacious. If you like the styling and don’t care to spend a couple grand more on the sportier rear-wheel-drive Genesis sedan, the new Azera might satisfy your automotive hunger.
