2012 hyundai azera Reviews and News

2012 Hyundai Azera
2012 Hyundai Azera
The Azera was once the top-of-the-line Hyundai sedan in North America. That, however, was before the appearance of the Genesis and, later, the Equus. Nowadays, the Azera is the slowest-selling Hyundai, despite a face-lift and powertrain revisions last year. Fortunately for fans of soft mid-size luxury sedans, the Azera will be the next Hyundai to get the full attention of the company's able engineers and designers. The attractive Korean-market Grandeur pictured here looks more or less identical to the next Azera that will go on sale in the States in early 2012. It follows the recent swoopy design themes of the Sonata, the Elantra, and the Accent. Until the new Azera reaches dealerships, the outgoing car (whose specifications are listed in the accompanying spec panel) will remain available, likely at discounted prices. That car is available in two Trim Levels: the base GLS model comes with a 260-hp, 3.3-liter V-6; the Limited gets a 283-hp, 3.8-liter V-6. Both engines deliver highway mileage in the high twenties with the help of a six-speed automatic transmission. Dual-zone climate control, power front seats, and iPod/USB auxiliary jacks are standard on all 2011 Azeras, and available luxury items include a power rear sunshade, leather upholstery, and an optional navigation system. The 2012 model will surely be even more luxurious, but don't be surprised if it utilizes smaller engines than the 2011 edition's. If the Azera's revamp is half as successful as that of recent Hyundais, sales of the Toyota Avalon, the Nissan Maxima, and the Volkswagen Passat will likely suffer.

When I saw photographs of the 2012 Azera, I wondered why Hyundai had grafted the face of a Klingon onto its full-size sedan, but when I was walking toward our Venetian Red Pearl tester in the parking garage, I came to a stop in surprise. What was this attractive sedan sitting in front of me? Surely, it wasn't the same angry-looking Azera I'd seen in photos. In pictures, the car's crisp, muscular character lines come across as bulbous; the glamorous LED full-width taillights look like something from the mid-1990s; and the grille -- which is elegant and understated in person -- looks like, well, a chrome Klingon forehead.

I've driven a lot of Hyundais over the past few years and have spent far more time thinking about them, evaluating them, and writing about them than I ever could have imagined a decade ago, when Hyundai was still at the bottom of the automotive heap. One Hyundai that had completely slipped my mind in recent years, though, was the large Azera sedan, and I believe I'm to be forgiven for that, because it was a completely forgettable car. It debuted in December 2005 as a 2006 model and, in its best-ever year, sold a respectable 27,000 units, but in recent years other Hyundai models took center stage and the Azera receded from view. At least it did in my mind, especially after the large, luxurious, rear-wheel-drive Genesis sedan came on the scene. Hyundai stopped producing the Azera in November 2010, sending only about two thousand 2011 models out to dealers.

The Azera was once Hyundai's flagship sedan, but recent years have seen the car's halo status stripped with the introduction of the Genesis and Equus sedans. Hyundai returns to the Los Angeles Auto Show this year with an updated version of the Azera, now the middle man in the model line-up, ready to do battle in the large-car segment against competitors from America and Japan.
