2011 Hyundai Azera

  • The Azera doesn’t offer a big, thirsty V8 engine. Overall, the Azera is a practical, comfortable

    large sedan with a features list that approaches entry-level luxury car status, but has a sub-

    $30,000 price tag.

    The Azera is available in two trims: a base-level GLS trim, which is very well-equipped for a

    base model, and a Limited trim that adds luxury features
    The Hyundai Azera is a full-size luxury sedan offering from Hyundai. Despite the increase in

    power, new EPA fuel economy estimates for the Azera GLS are improved to 20 mpg city / 28 mpg


    The Azera comes standard with dual front automatic climate controls, solar control glass, power

    seats for driver and front passenger, as well as woodgrain and metalgrain interior accents. An

    AM/FM/XM Satellite Radio/CD/MP3 audio system that includes a four-channel, 172-watt internal

    amplifier and six speakers comes standard in the GLS. An available Infinity audio system

    includes a 7-channel, 315-watt amplifier with an in-dash six-disc CD changer and 10 speakers

    (standard in Limited trim levels).

    The Azera with "Premium Package" adds leather seating surfaces, heated front seats and a power

    sunroof to an already loaded standard equipment package.
    The "Navigation Package" includes the LG navigation system and premium 605-watt Infinity Logic 7

    surround sound audio system. The six-disc CD changer is replaced by the navigation system.

    It also offers a power tilt and slide sunroof, power adjustable tilt and telescopic steering

    wheel, power adjustable pedals, integrated memory system (power driver seat, exterior mirrors,

    and power tilt and telescopic steering wheel), woodgrain steering wheel and door pulls, and

    rain-sensing wipers.

    For 2011, the Hyundai Azera gets an all-new six-speed automatic transmission; additionally, both

    its 3.3-liter and 3.8-liter engines have been tuned to improve both power and fuel efficiency,

    with decent increases on both fronts. Even base models come generously equipped with amenities

    such as steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and heated side mirrors. The range-topping Limited

    model adds luxury-car mainstays like heated leather seats and a sunroof without an exorbitant

    increase in price; an Azera Limited starts at just over 30 grand, making it less expensive than

    a base-model Toyota Avalon.

    Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options
    The Azera is a full-size sedan that is offered in GLS and Limited trim levels.
    The optional Premium package adds a sunroof, leather upholstery and five-level heated front


    The Azera Limited includes all of the above plus a larger engine, power-folding mirrors, a power

    rear sunshade, a power tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, driver-seat memory functions, a

    wood-trimmed steering wheel and a 10-speaker Infinity stereo. The Hyundai GLS is powered by a

    3.3-liter V6 that produces 260 hp and 233 pound-feet of torque. Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated

    20 mpg city/28 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined. Fuel economy is only slightly lower at 19 mpg

    city/27 mpg highway and 22 mpg combined.

    Standard safety equipment for the 2011 Hyundai Azera includes traction control, stability

    control, active front head restraints, front-seat side airbags, rear outboard side airbags and

    full-length side curtain airbags. The 2011 Azera has not been rated using the government's new,

    more strenuous 2011 crash testing procedures. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded

    the 2011 Azera its top score of "Good" for its protection of front passengers in frontal-offset

    crashes and a score of "Acceptable" (the second-highest rating) in side-impact testing.

    The 2011 Azera's tall seating position may limit headroom for taller drivers, but aside from

    that, the cabin is quite spacious. When larger items need transporting, the 60/40-split rear

    seats fold down to further increase cargo capacity.
