2012 Hyundai Azera - Review

The 2012 Hyundai Azera looks like a bigger Sonata or a front-axle drive version of the Genesis sedan. From what meets the eye, one might wonder why Hyundai might be producing another full sized sedan for a company that already has two successful lines now. If you get to have a closer look at Azera, you will realize that this is not just another full sized sedan. This article seeks to unlock some of the features of Azera that make it stand out.


Hyundai continues to beat expectations when it comes to adding style to its cars. With Azera, Hyundai has kept the tradition of sculpting a beautiful car with the benefits of fuel economy. Its exterior measures 193 inches long and 73 inches wide, 4 inches wider and an inch longer than its predecessor, the Sonata. It still sports the chrome grill but the wrap around LED tail light is unique to Azera. It features 18'' wheels with 245/45 tires which come as standard edition.

Additional features

It also comes with heated front and rear seats, backup camera, navigation and integrated blue tooth. All these are part of standard edition. For an additional $4000, you get to have bigger 19-inch rims, tilt and slide sunroof, Infinity audio system, ventilated front seats and a power rear sunshade.

To provide a composed driving experience, Azera has standard ABS with a multi-link independent rear system alongside disc brakes and struts with coil springs. The driving experience measures up to standard Ford Taurus or Toyota Avlon.


The 2012 Hyundai Azera is only available as a 3.3 liter V6 with a six speed automatic transmission. The engine provides 293 horsepower, which is a weak link of the car. Every driver who has sat behind the wheel of Azera is quick to conclude that its 293 horse power is not quite enough. Keeping up with the tradition of fuel economy of Hyundai cars, Azera provides 20 miles on a gallon for city drive and can go a further 29 miles with the gallon on the highway.

The 2012 Hyundai Azera is a complete hot cake back in Korea and has been in American show rooms ever since the March of this year. The Azera is finding more and more customers loving the finesse of this car with good fuel economy. It also comes as a cheaper option as compared to its other full sized luxury sedan counterparts with just one drawback, the lack of more power.


• Good fuel economy
• Value for money
• Loads of style
• Plenty of performance


• Still a boring ride to drive, needs more power


This is a good car meant for the executives who want to cut costs but still want to maintain style.
