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 equipment.
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.

► Nissan JUKE R [interior]
New images and video containing the first official audio of Nissan Juke-R's
beating heart -- its 480bhp, 3.8-litre engine -- have been released ahead
of official testing later this month (November 2011).
Dubbed the world's fastest crossover, Juke-R is a unique concept car that
combines the power, speed and handling of Nissan's flagship GT-R sports car
with the bold, exciting design of the Juke crossover model. Images and
video reflect the thought-provoking, energetic style of this urban rebel
crossover, while its foreboding matt black finish enhances the car's
The car's unique, impactful styling places Juke's curves and lines over
GT-R's 3.8-litre engine, drivetrain and suspension, making Juke-R the most
testosterone-packed compact crossover in the world. It is a force to be
reckoned with not only in performance but also in its bold and menacing
Large, provocative vents in the front bumper provide cooling for the
Juke-R's twin turbo V6engine, while
subtle submerged ducts in the bonnet help draw air through the engine bay.
Flared wheel arches cover the GT-R's 20-inch RAYS forged alloy wheels to
merge with a new sculpted skirting. At the back of the car a dynamic split
rear wing provides the supercar crossover with down-force, while twin
pentagonal Exhausts emit the GT-R's
evocative engine note.
Inside, the Juke's motorcycle-inspired console is at the centre of a
modified interior cabin fitted out to go racing complete with twin race
seats, full race harness and a race-spec roll cage. GT-R steering wheel,
pedals, dials and 7-inch touch-screen display are built into a modified
version of Juke's dashboard.
Officially announced by Nissan Europe in October, Juke-R is not a
production car but a special, road legal concept car.Two versions of the
Juke-R are being created -- one in left-hand-drive and one in
right-hand-drive. Juke-R will go into testing in late November before it's
unleashed on the world to take on the urban playground.

2012 Hyundai Azera review from Consumer Reports
The Hyundai Azera is stylish, fuel efficient, roomy, and quick. A
well-finished interior includes generous standard equipment. But don't
expect sporty handling or a refined ride. Learn more about the Hyundai

2012 Hyundai Azera Test Drive & Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/azera/ The 2012 Hyundai Azera is premium a
Full-Sized front wheel drive family sedan. The Azera may be one of the
lesser known vehicles in the Hyundai stable, but for 2012 this car has been
totally redesigned both inside and out. The 2012 Hyundai Azera not only has
the most horsepower in its class, but
it also has the most interior space. The Azera may be one of the best kept
secrets in the entire automotive industry. With a base price of $32,000 the
Azera is priced in between the smaller Hyundai Sonata and the luxurious
Hyundai Genesis sedan.
The 2012 Hyundai Azera is powered by a new breed of engine called GDI. This
gas direct injected motor is a 3.3 liter V-6 engine that produces 293 horsepower and 255
lb-ft. of torque which is the best in class. The 6-speed transmission is
pretty efficient and allows the Azera to reach a fuel economy rating of 20
MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway.
On the outside the new Azera features Hyundai's Fluidic Design which can be
seen on other vehicles like the Sonata and Accent. In fact the Azera looks
like a full sized version of the Accent. HID Xenon headlights are standard
and LED accents add to the appeal of this car. There is a great panoramic
sunroof as an addition feature. Out back a set of oval looking integrated
chrome Exhaust tips perfect compliment
the rest of the car. A set of optional 19-inch hyper silver alloy wheels
add to both the Azera's physical appeal as well as its handling
The 2012 Hyundai Azera features all the amenities you need in a full-sized
family car. There are driver controls mounted on the steering wheel, a
touch screen navigation system, push-button start, Bluetooth, and more. But
the real kicker is the level of comfort. There are various premium seating
options available. The seats are heated, ventilated, and adjustable.
Combine that with the largest amount of interior room and you have one very
comfortable sedan. Some of the other vehicles the Azera is up against are
the Buick LaCrosse, Toyota Avalon, Nissan Maxima, and Ford Taurus. The
Hyundai Azera provides room, comfort, and good fuel economy. What more
could you ask for?

2012 Hyundai Azera Drive and Review
( http://www.TFLcar.com ) For 2012 Hyundai Azera is all new. This
fill-sized sedan from Korea competes with cars like the Toyota Avalon, Ford
Taurus, Chrysler 300 and perhaps even the Lexus ES 350. For a base price
that starts around 30K, the 2012 Hyundai Azera offers a lot of value for
the money. The Azera can be had with a massive sunroof, it comes standard
with plenty of leg room in both the front and back and seats that are all
day road trip comfy. However unlike some of its rivals the Azera is front
wheel-drive and not the fastest and certainly not the sportiest car in the
segment. Check out this first drive review as we put the new and Sonota
like Azera to the test.

What I have to say about the 2013 Avalon: Out with the old and in with the
new, this quote can be directly used toward the new 2013 Toyota Avalon.
Toyota's main approach was to entice younger buyers into the Avalon instead
of the old ones. The previous generation was quite boring as some people
would call it as it had no sporty flavor, that it's competitors had.
However, this has changed for 2013 a new stiffed up suspension and better
driving dynamics, this one is way more fun to drive with still having some
of that floaty boaty taste. The interior is very rich looking with
stitching almost everywhere, as I was very surprised by it. Everything is
ergonomically correct in the car and the touch sensitive buttons used for
almost all of your basic functions is actually one of the best I have ever
used. All in all very great car from Toyota I really recommend to buy it
for a Full Size car for 2013. Like Camerons Car Reviews on Facebook!

2013 Toyota Avalon Review and Road Test (with infotainment review)
The Avalon has been something of a caricature for Toyota since it wafted
onto the stage in 1994. The stretched Camry was low on soul, devoid of
style and soft of spring. In short, it was the Buick that wouldn't leave
you stranded. Since then Toyota has struggled to divine a mission for their
full size sedan, a problem complicated by the re-invigoration of the large
sedan market by the American brands. In hopes of resurrecting the Avalon's
sales numbers, which have slid to 25% of their 2000 year shipments, Toyota
has injected something hitherto unseen in an Avalon: style. Is it enough?
Before we dive right into the Avalon, it's important to cover the
competition. Back when the Chrysler LHS and Buick Park Avenue roamed the
land, the Avalon's competition was easy to identify. Nearly 20 years later
those customers are in a nursing home without a driver's license and Toyota
is looking for new hunting grounds (I can kid because I owned an LHS.) Now
we have the moderately successful Chrysler 300, the larger-than-ever
Taurus, a new Impala that doesn't make me want to put my eyes out and a
revised Hyundai Azera trying to beat Toyota at their own game.
But wait, I'm forgetting one. The "elephant in the room" that is the Lexus
ES 350. You see, the kind of shopper that needs a new car and immediately
thinks "Toyota Avalon" is far more likely to cross shop the Lexus ES than
the gangsta 300 or the Impala. After spending a week in the ES and the
Avalon fraternal twins back-to-back this comparison is even more valid.
Now in its fourth incarnation, the Avalon has finally developed a sense of
style. While the "I'm a bigger Camry" look is still going on, Toyotas has
managed to inject some creases and curves that made my 33 year old eyes
take a second look. It's not as visually exciting as the Chrysler 300, but
Toyota's styling efforts look better thought out than the Impala's 11/10ths
Cruze grille. Car makers love making their vehicles "instantly
identifiable" as a member of their brand. Translation: they make them all
look the same.
Thankfully Toyota ditched the Camry "quotation mark" shaped tail lamps for
a more elegant rear end treatment. The new rump features more chrome than
any other Toyota product, dual Exhaust
tips and tail lamps that wrap well around the side. The engineers stretched
the Avalon's greenhouse over the trunk to increase the visual length of the
car, a trick that worked on me until I looked at the spec sheet. At 195
inches, the Avalon is 6-inches longer than the Camry, but it's several
inches shorter than the Chrysler, Chevy and Ford. Since the ES and Avalon
are now twins separated at birth most of the dimensions are common except
that the Avalon gets a bigger booty (and more trunk space in the process)
and (oddly enough) has a lower ride height making it visually more
