This version of the Azera is more stylish and refined than its predecessor. Appealingly finished, the 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 even for this class. The ride also falls short of expectations.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Owner Satisfaction with:

Driving Experience

Includes acceleration and handling

What Owners Say

"Whether accelerating or decelerating, it pulls to the side. I understand that it's due to the front-wheel drive, but you asked."

John R., TX (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Accelleration and handling are superb."

Anonymous, TX (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Very bible. Great acceleration. Very responsive adling"

Robert M., WA (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Wonderful handling and power with 6 cyl."

Anonymous, FL (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Quick response, easy turning, relatively steady handling, firm ride, no sway or bounce."

Anonymous, WI (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"The car has excellent handling and a powerful engine to go with it. I wish the fuel economy was better or at least as it was advertised."

Herbert S., NJ (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Responsive and easy to drive, especially for a big car. Disappointed that this car is not being currently offered, but believe it was poor merchandising and no advertising that caused slow sales on what was a Hyundai upscale model that should still be in their lineup."

Ronald L., FL (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Like the eco mode that dampens response somewhat to brain better mileage. Easy to take out of eco mode when I need a faster response."

Anonymous, VA (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"I could not find a car in this price range that offered more in the reliability and fun to drive categories. While that sounds like a plug for the vehicles value I say that to emphasize the two characteristics I paid close attention to when purchasing this vehicle. In my opinion it handles and accelerates just as well as pricier and less reliable cars in its class. It truly is a fun car to drive."

Bradley H., OK (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"The steering has always felt a bit loose and I have to really watch on lane departure."

Anonymous, NC (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Great car to drive very comfortable on long trips"

JACQUELI M., SC (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Incredible styling, good acceleration, great confort, space and workmanship. Ride is somewhat harsh in bumpy roads."

ANGEL M., PR (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Engine has developed a rough idle and black residue staining above the two rear exhaust tail pipes. I have emailed Hyundai customer satisfaction dept. for resolution and received no response."

Anonymous, RI (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"The acceleration of this 292 hp vehicle is excellent. The transmission applies the power smoothly so that the vehicle accelerates effortlessly and with no jerking of the transmission during shifting. Outstanding engine and transmission."

BERTHA D., WA (2013 Hyundai Azera)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"It's a really nice ride."

Anonymous, WI (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Extremely comfortable. Great for road trips"

Anonymous, GA (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"For a smaller sedan it still provides good room for 4 adults. Have taken it on fairly long drives and still feel fresh after a day on the road. Very good visibility."

Anonymous, VA (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Very difficult to get in ad out of. Would never U.K. another difficult to enter car."

Robert M., WA (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Great power and acceleration with good gas mileage. Leather eats are supportive and comfortable. Very quiet ride . Good visibility."

Anonymous, FL (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Seats firm, comfortable, but no lumbar adjustment. Smooth, fairly quiet ride. Handling does not inspire confidence."

Anonymous, MD (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Very comfortable seats, very quiet front and back seats, ride somewhat harsh on slightly to moderately rough pavement"

Rufus M., TN (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Seats are comfortable with exception of the head rest. This tends to be a spot of contention for me in many newer car models (that I have rented or test driven) The transition for the seat back to the head rest is abrupt, it extends forward too far and causes neck discomfort. this makes finding comfort on long drives a chore. Other than that the seats are comfortable and the seat coolers are a welcomed addition. The suspension is not as finely tuned as one would hope, while it is smooth on the road, tracks over small bumps and corners somewhat well it seems to be noisy. Its not just the suspension causing the noise. I wish the ride were just quieter."

Bradley H., OK (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Very nice ride. Comfortable seats. I like the lumbar support. It is not noisy."

Carl W., SC (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"very comfortable with excellent seats and back support."

Ronald L., FL (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"The road noise is too loud and I have to turn the radio up too high to hear well."

Anonymous, NC (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Very, very comfortable seats. Great climate control but front vents not placed as good as our 2006 Azera. Quiet but road seeps in a little. Fantastic ride, especially for long trips."

Anonymous, WY (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"Ride is very harsh as compared to our 2006"

BENJAMIN L., NY (2013 Hyundai Azera)

"I wish it had slightly more headroom in the front seats. I bought the model with the sunroof, which reduces headroom."

Anonymous, NC (2013 Hyundai Azera)

Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?".
