More stylish and refined than its predecessor, this version of the Hyundai Azera is even more appealingly finished.
Its spacious and quiet cabin has comfortable seats and generous room for five.
The powertrain is smooth, powerful and fuel-efficient.
While handling is improved, the Azera still lacks agility and ride quality falls short of the expectations created by its looks and the class in which it is trying to play.
Standard safety features include electronic stability control, antilock brakes, traction control, and a rearview camera.
Parking assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, forward-collision alert and lane-departure warning are available as options.
While this new Azera is suitably loaded with features and remained competitively priced, our testers felt it no longer represented a bargain.
