During a supermarket run in our Hyundai Azera Limited test car, we were approached by a salt-and-pepper-haired man wearing cargo shorts and flip-flops; he was excited to share his recent experience with an Azera he rented. “Surprisingly nice, isn’t it? You know, for a Hyundai.” He’s summed up the Azera in a way that is succinct and accurate.
Yes, the Azera is a nice car—for one wearing any badge, really—and at $40,320 as tested, our top-of-the-line Limited comes with an impressive list of class-above features while undercutting its corporate cousin, the Kia Cadenza, by as much as $4000. The cabin feels airy, thanks to large windows and our model’s standard panoramic sunroof. The accommodations are spacious for four adults, but the middle rear seat has a high seating position, with the sloping rear roofline further reducing headroom. That seat is suitable for a child or petite adult, but only for a short stint. Behind the rear seats resides a 16-cubic-foot trunk, which is on par with the large-sedan competition.
The driver’s seat has an adjustable thigh support, a boon for the long-legged. The front seats are plush and are both heated and ventilated. However, the power-seat controls represent a slight ergonomic misstep: They’re mounted too far forward on the door panels to reach without leaning forward, making adjustments a bit of a trial-and-error affair. Fortunately, two memory settings are available so this song and dance doesn’t have to be repeated, and they include the standard power-adjustable steering column, which both tilts and telescopes, as well as the outside mirrors.
The car is relaxed and quiet at highway speeds, a perfect pod for eating up the miles. In fact, we measured the Azera’s sound level as 67 decibels at a 70-mph cruise, 1 dB quieter than our long-term BMW 7-series. Complete review on www.caranddriver.com, by Manufacturer
