The refined Azera sedan has a detailed, well-finished, and quiet interior. The smooth 3.3-liter V6 and six-speed automatic provide strong performance and return a good 23 mpg overall. But the ride is too stiff, trailing the Chevrolet Impala and Toyota Avalon. Handling isn't stellar either. The cabin is spacious, with comfortable front seats and a roomy rear cabin. Blind-spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and forward-collision and lane-departure warnings are available. The Azera is loaded with features and generous luxury touches throughout, but it isn't the bargain it once was. Reliability has been well above average.
