The 2013 Hyundai Azera is a car that gets lost in a sea of full sized entry-level luxury sedans. Last year this vehicle received a total redesign and the result was one of the best all-around cars in this segment. The Azera gets less press than the smaller Sonata and the rear wheel drive Genesis Sedan, but this sedan has a lot of great things going for it including: tons of interior room, a powerful V-6 engine, top safety ratings, advanced technology, and sleek looks. The 2013 Hyundai Azera is only available in one trim with a base price of $32,250.

Hyundai is currently in the business of building stylish, shapely sedans. The Azrea takes the polarizing look of the Sonata and adds some maturity by toning down the exterior styling cues. The result is a nice large sedan that the more sophisticated crowd will enjoy. Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture design is still evident just not as dramatic. Up front the headlights are elegant and stylish with their integrated LED’s. Out back the dual chrome exhaust tips have some added design of their own.

The 2013 Hyundai Azera is powered by a GDi 3.3 liter V-6 engine that makes 293 horsepower and 255 lb-ft. of torque. Fuel economy is 20 MPG in the city and 29 MPG on the highway. The only transmission option is a 6-speed automatic. The whole powerplant is responsive and powerful delivering smooth acceleration.

As good as the new Azera looks on the outside, it is even better on the inside. Hyundai has done an excellent job at making the interior of the Azera a premium space. The surfaces are wrapped in upscale materials; the front seats are 12-way adjustable and heated. The center stack is packed with technology housing a large navigation screen and well laid out radio and heating controls. Rounding off the interior positives is the large panoramic sunroof.

For all the features and amenities you get; this car is at the top of the class. The 2013 Hyundai Azera looks nicer and better put together than the competition. For the price, features, looks, style, and engine; you are getting tons of car. The Hyundai Azera is a true winner in its class. The car will put up a great fight against vehicles in the luxury class.
