Hyundai's Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy has quickly won many admirers, accolades and owners around the world. The Azera is a sophisticated interpretation of this dramatic design language that creates a sense of speed and movement. Like auto royalty, Azera commands authority. Strong hood lines and a voluminous bumper make a dramatic first impression. An elegantly sculpted wing-shaped radiator grille, reminiscent of an aircraft, not only looks regal, but allows for dynamic driving.
Expressive headlamps featuring round-type positioning lamps add a premium touch with high-efficiency LED while minimizing energy consumption for even more satisfaction.
Accentuating premium details from every angle, DLO chrome moldings beautifully characterize the outside mirrors. Azera's handy puddle lamp feature helps you avoid the mess and is sure to keep you driving in style even in the dark hours.
Distinctively eye-catching at every turn, horizontal-type LED turn signals integrated with air curtain technology take Azera's sophisticated design to the next level.
Futuristic styling of LED rear combination lamps reinforced with full-span illumination and a solid geometry finish express Azera‘s unique design revolution.
Exquisitely refined rear reflector, dual muffler and black lower cover features complete Azera's strong rear design.
More passenger room than other vehicles in its class. The world is a beautiful place from the vantage point of Azera's spacious cabin with standard features including leather seating surfaces and an 8-inch touchscreen navigation system. Available premium options include panoramic sunroof, Electronic Parking Brake with Automatic Vehicle Hold, rear side-window sunshades and a power rear sunshade.
The driver and passengers enjoy an array of seating enhancements that include standard front and rear heated seats plus ventilated front seats. The standard 12-way adjustable power driver seat also features a seat cushion extension and an Integrated Memory System (IMS) with two memory settings for the seat, side mirrors and steering column.
Blue Link® provides additional safety, security and connected convenience for your Hyundai. Access the suite of features with your smartphone, smartwatch, a web application, or the in-car system to find that next latte, lock your car from inside the stadium, stay informed on vehicle health, or call for help. In the event of an accident, it can send an automatic collision notification and request assistance. Even securely and remotely start your car and set the climate control to cool the interior on sweltering days or heat the interior and defrost the windshield on cold mornings.
Rear-seat passengers have access to a range of available comfort and privacy features including a power rear window sunshade, manual rear side-window sunshades and standard second-row air vents. At the touch of a button, the power rear sunshade deploys to block out the sun, keeping the interior cool, even in summer. When reverse is selected, it automatically retracts down to provide a clearer view behind the vehicle.
When the sun drops below the horizon, the mood in Azera's cabin changes. Open the door and you're greeted by the available illuminated door sill plates. Once inside, Azera's interior lighting system adds a soft, ambient light that's beautiful and welcoming.
The standard power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel features cruise, audio and phone controls. The advanced Electroluminescent Gauge Cluster with color LCD display provides driver information including trip meter, fuel, distance-to-empty range, average fuel consumption, average speed and elapsed time.
Azera's standard 8-inch color LCD touchscreen impresses as does its standard 550-watt Infinity® Logic 7® Surround Sound Audio System. There's plenty of power and features including a smartphone/USB port and auxiliary input jacks, plus a Bluetooth® hands-free phone system that keeps you safely connected. Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay™ also come standard on the Azera!
Commanding performance for the world's most demanding audience. It makes sense that premium car buyers have extremely high expectations. They've got a lot riding on their decision. Azera was designed to offer a complete premium/performance profile delivering the power, ride and handling that particular drivers value most. If we're going to build a premium car, we're going to make sure it's one of the best on the road.
Let the sky inside. The available panoramic tilt-and-slide sunroof opens up Azera's spacious interior to a world of natural light and expansive views. Its design makes the most of a satisfying driving experience and puts you closer to the environment.
A good measure of Azera's innovative thinking starts under the hood. The 3.3L V6 engine creates an effortless flow of power and surprising fuel efficiency using advancements that include Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) and Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT).
Azera's smooth-shifting 6-speed automatic transmission with SHIFTRONIC® makes skillful use of all the power its V6 engine generates efficiently applying it to the road.
Getting the optimal mix of fuel and air into the combustion chamber is key to the science of engine tuning. It's a simple goal that can get very complicated. But Hyundai takes advantage of Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) to inject the fuel directly into the combustion chamber. The result: high levels of both power and fuel economy.
The Azera is one premium sedan that knows what to do with all of that fluid power when the road turns, or turns rough. Equipped with SACHS® Amplitude Selective Damping shock absorbers, it delivers a sophisticated handling response in a variety of driving situations and a smooth ride over road surfaces that aren't smooth at all.
Enjoy a class-exclusive feature that makes loading and unloading your Azera easier. This feature automatically opens the trunk when you stand within three feet behind the vehicle with the Proximity Key for more than three seconds. Unlike other vehicles, there's no need to kick or shuffle your feet to engage.
From the high-speed oval to the Belgian blocks to the twisting body flex course, our California Proving Grounds takes every aspect of performance to the limit. We have some of the most advanced vehicle testing facilities ever built, and we're not afraid to use them.
We've raised the standard of safety. Azera is the only car in its class to offer Blind Spot Detection, standard. It helps detect when a vehicle is in the driver's blind spot and provides both an audible and a visual alert. When reverse gear is selected, Rear Cross-traffic Alert helps identify and warn the driver of vehicles approaching from the side. Lane Change Assist measures the closing speed of an approaching vehicle in the adjacent lane to determine if changing lanes is safe and if it's not, gives an audible and visual warning.
Drift outside your lane without signaling and this available system is designed to inform you with an audible and a visual cue. It turns technology into a tool that helps drivers maintain vehicle control and lane positioning.
Along with the rearview camera, Azera's available rear parking sensors make backing up easier. Sensors in the rear bumper give you an audible warning that increases in frequency and tone as you get closer to objects it detects in the area behind your vehicle.
Using a forward-sensing camera, this available feature looks down the road to determine the closing speed of your vehicle in relation to the vehicle ahead and provides an audible and visual warning to alert the driver of a potential collision.
According to national insurance claims, over 25% of accidents happen while in reverse. When you put the Azera into reverse, the rearview image with parking guides is displayed on the Azera's 8-inch touchscreen to help increase your vision and awareness.
This thoughtful, available feature automatically switches from high to low beam headlights when another vehicle is detected by the front camera. While the available LED fog lights, HID headlights, and standard LED taillights not only look great but also add increased visibility.
Its extensive passive safety technology adds to the secure feeling that comes with driving the Azera. For protection in a collision, Azera's nine-airbag safety system includes two front airbags, four front and rear side-impact airbags, two side-curtain airbags, and even a driver's knee airbag.
When this available feature detects a vehicle in your lane ahead, it automatically slows the Azera down to maintain a safe distance with the vehicle ahead. Smart Cruise Control can even come to a full stop, then start again without driver input.
