The Hyundai Azera wasn#8217;t sure what it wanted to be, Hyundai#8217;s goal of slotting it the Sonata and Genesis sedans. The made sense, given the gap in pricing between the two aforementioned And though the Azera was a practical with its roomy interior and V6 it didn#8217;t send any pulses

The first Azera was sleek, but not in a good way #8212; more sleek but unmemorable. It didn#8217;t to copy any other sedan out there, but it also somehow to look truly original. All changes with the arrival of the Hyundai Azera.

We took it for a drive to see for ourselves.

the first generation Azera, the second generation grabs attention. It#8217;s simply an car #8212; well proportioned, and noticeable. Carrying forward the Sculpture#8221; design language evident on the Sonata, the Azera the old somnambulist duds for a rakish that isn#8217;t overdone.

the large, winged grille and swept-back headlamps to the contoured and sharply creased rear panel, the Azera does it The Nissan Maxima wishes it this good.

If ever were an award for consistent from design to practicality to experience, the Azera would with flying colors.

The upgrade theme also the Azera#8217;s interior. The standard adjustable leather seats are and well-positioned for driving, and both and rear seats have heating #8212; a boon to drivers (and passengers). interior design is handsome and executed, and the ergonomics and aesthetics are to that effect.

The instrument gauges are large and easy to while the cascading center is nicely done, with easy-to-use knobs for both and climate control. We#8217;re not why more automakers aren#8217;t this kind of simple that makes it easier to on, well, driving. The winged from the grille continues, as the top of the console extends out to each of the dash gracefully.

We especially liked the light-sensitive atmosphere in the cabin, which a soft blue glow the sun starts to set. If it annoys the brightness can be adjusted.

And unless Manute Bol reincarnate, you won#8217;t be wanting for space in the front or the The Azera has always been a car for driver and passengers, and in the second it doesn#8217;t disappoint. Equipment as backup camera, sat nav, Bluetooth, and Hyundai’s Blue telematics system come as does a well-equipped Dimension sound system that has HD Radio, an iPod/USB port and aux jacks.

You can also upgrade to an Infinity system. Our tester came a couple of nice options the power rear sunshade, window sunshades, ventilated seats and gorgeous 19-inch upgraded from the standard 18

If ever there an award for consistent theme design to practicality to driving the Azera would qualify flying colors. It drives as as it looks.

Jumping from 260 hp in the old model to a 293, the new Azera does a job of hustling you to 60 mph (6.2 seconds) a lot of front-wheel-drive torque steer. The automatic … with mode works well shifting very smoothly. still not sure why cars of segment have paddle

There#8217;s virtually nothing occurs in us while driving family sedans that up that desire.) The Azera#8217;s with coil springs and a independent rear suspension it adequately planted, and the electrically steering rack provides steering and precision. But don#8217;t great road feedback the steering wheel. But you#8217;re not for a track car, are you?

The Azera drives as well as any sedan in this segment and good doing it.

Hyundai has a bangup job with their new and sales reflect just The Azera is another one to chalk up for the automaker. We#8217;d take well-executed redesign over a Avalon any day of the week, given it evokes a more youthful especially in its exterior design, but screams responsibility.

It#8217;s a rocketship nor a luxobarge; but it#8217;s not a family car for which you have to up your manhood.
