The Hyundai XG300, introduced in the fall of 2000 as a 2001 model, was expected to compete as the value leader against entry-level luxury vehicles like the Acura 3.2 TL, Lexus ES 300 and Infinity I30. With a full complement of standard luxury features like power driver and passenger seat, leather and wood grain interior trim, power sunroof and automatic climate control, the XG300 ? which took its name from its 3.0 litre, 190 horsepower V6 ? offered consumers good value in a luxury sedan for less than $32,000.
But the real competition turned out not to be the lower priced sedans of the Japanese luxury car divisions, but well-equipped versions of the Honda Accord, Toyota Camry, Nissan Altima and even Hyundai's own Sonata.
2001 was a good year for Hyundai, which sold 59,166 vehicles in Canada, it's best year since the days of the Pony. But XG300 sales ? 1,108 units ? accounted for less than 2 per cent of sales. In contrast Hyundai sold over 7,400 Sonatas in 2001.
For 2002, Hyundai introduced a larger 3.5 litre V6 for the XG and renamed the model the XG350. It was a prescient move, as 2002 saw the introduction of the new Nissan Altima with its 3.5 litre, 245 horsepower V6 and the 210 horsepower, 3.0 litre V6 Camry, and later in the year, the 240 horsepower, 3.0 litre V6 2003 Accord.
Producing 194 horsepower at 5,500 r.p.m., the Hyundai V6 came up short on horsepower and with 216 ft.-lbs. of torque at 3,500 r.p.m., topped only Honda (211 ft.-lbs. of torque).

2012 Hyundai Azera (Technology Group) Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Review
Hello and welcome to Saabkyle04! YouTube's largest collection of automotive
variety! In today's video, we'll take an up close and personal, in depth
look at the all new 2012 Hyundai Azera. Specifically the technology
package (top option package). The 2012 Azera is offered in one standard,
yet well equipped trim level, with the only optional package being the
technology group. During this presentation, we will take a 1st person look
at what the vehicle is all about beginning with the start up, performance
data, fuel economy, the occasional track data, and build quality. Also, I
will teach you how to use most of the interior and exterior features in a
detailed fashion, that before, you could only get from going to a
dealership yourself! Throughout the video, I will highlight key styling and
unique differences about the vehicle, any available options, and of course
it would not be an enthusiast car video without the good ole engine portion
with rev and Exhaust note with
interior and exterior perspectives. A thorough tour/review of this car
designed to give others a greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
