► 2012 Hyundai Azera [design]
Hyundai Motor America today introduced the all-new Azera in a North
American debut at the Los Angeles Auto Show. Azera is the fifth vehicle to
adopt the company's signature Fluidic Sculpture design language.Tucson,
Accent, Elantra, Sonata and Azera now all have a modern, sleek,
sophisticated style, creating the illusion of constant motion. This
flagship Fluidic Sculpture sedan also features a more powerful Lambda II
3.3-liter GDI engine, six-speed transmission, best-in-class combined fuel
economy of 23 miles per gallon and a wide range of advanced safety
The Lambda II 3.3-liter GDI engine is the heart of the 2012 Azera. It
produces a best-in-class specific output of 88.8 horsepower per liter, while
having the smallest displacement V6 in the segment. This engine has a
high-pressure direct injection system (over 2,200 psi), which dramatically
increases power and torque, while reducing fuel consumption and emissions.
This system eliminates the need for a large displacement V6 engine and
increases the compression ratio from 10.4 to 11.5 for greater thermal
efficiency and output. It also features all-aluminum construction, four
valves per cylinder, piston cooling jets, roller timing chain, CrN Physical
Vapor Deposition (PVD) coating on the top ring chamfer and Dual
Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT) for a broad power spread. A
three-stage Variable Intake System (VIS) further broadens its power curve
to improve the vehicle's off-the-line acceleration and passing performance.
EPA fuel economy estimates for the Azera are 20 mpg city / 29 mpg highway /
23 mpg combined.
2014 Hyundai Azera Limited Test Drive Video Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/azera/2014/?id=32972 You probably don’t
know what the Azera is. Hyundai does not sell many of these models in a
calendar year. That’s too bad because the 2014 Hyundai Azera is a good
looking car that has a bunch of great details. Every 2014 model comes with
the 3.3 liter V-6 that is good for 293 horsepower. Fuel economy is
rated at 19 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway. This Limited model
tested here has a base price of $34,750.
On the inside there is a ton of room in the 2014 Hyundai Azera. The
interior materials are smooth and plush. The ride quality is great which
makes this car a good highway cruiser. Hyundai has done a good job of
making the interior feel upscale and there is great attention to detail
paid to the surfaces and buttons. Dynamically there is nothing to complain
about and more people should certainly buy the Hyundai Azera.

2012 HYUNDAI AZERA FULL REVIEW AND TEST DRIVE
This is my review of the 2012 HYUNDAI AZERA. I drove a fully loaded model
and I rode as passenger in a standard base model. The car offers plenty of
standard equipment such as Nav, backup cam, disk brakes, Hyundai Blue Link,
heated seats up front and 18" wheels.
Test Drive: 2014 Hyundai Azera Limited
We drive Hyundai's largest front-wheel driven sedan, the Azera. How does it
compete with Toyota Avalon, Ford Taurus, Buick LaCrosse and others is the
question we sought to answer.
