2013 Hyundai Azera Overview
The full-size 2013 Hyundai Azera sedan returns, fresh off a full redesign in 2012.
The Azera’s styling is familiar, due to its stark resemblance to the Sonata midsize sedan. It got the full “fluidic design” treatment in 2012 and from the front its difficult to tell the two Hyundai siblings apart. Rearwards there are a few design cues that are unique to the Azera, including the dual-exhausts that are integrated into the bumper and rear taillights with a red strip that crosses the whole trunk just above the license plate. Exterior options include xenon HID headlights and a panoramic moonroof.
Power comes from a 293-horsepower, direct-injected 3.3-liter V-6 that makes 255 pounds-feet of torque and is mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. The Azera also offers a four-wheel independent suspension which makes for a smooth ride. Fuel economy ratings of 20 mpg in the city and 30 mpg on the highway put the Azera in the middle of the pack when it comes to fuel efficiency, along with cars like the Ford Taurus and Chrysler 300.
The Azera’s curves aren’t limited to its exterior, the interior gets much of the same swoopiness with a dash that starts high but dives down towards the center console giving the cabin a sense of motion. One thing that we like about the Azera: it really piles on the standard features. All Azera models come with heated front and rear seats, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, USB/iPod port, and a 7-inch touch-screen navigation system. Hyundai’s Blue Link telematics system (similar to OnStar on GM models) is also standard. Options include an upgraded stereo, ventilated front seats, and a power-adjustable steering column.
There are also plenty of standard safety features, including seven airbags, an electronic stability system with traction control, backup camera, and antilock brakes. Rear parking sensors are optional for safer backing.
