2012 Hyundai Azera Sedan

Hyundai is becoming more and more competitive in the premium segment, and their newest addition to the range, the 2012 Azera trying to convince customers that it represents the better value if compared to rivals such as the Buick LaCrosse, Lexus ES 350 or Acura TL.

This new generation 2012 Hyundai Azera which is known as the Grandeur in Korea, will be showcased starting from today at the 2011 Los Angeles Motor Show, and its North American market debut is expected to take place early next year.

Following the automaker's Fluidic Sculpture design principles the Azera measures 193.2 in length, 73.2 inches in width and 57.9 inches in height and sits on a 112 inch long wheelbase.

Its power will come from a Lambda II 3.3-litre V6 with direct-injection technology, which according to Hyundai will deliver 293 HP an d255 lb-ft of torque

exclusively via a 6-speed automatic transmission. 

Fuel consumption figures indicate that the new Azera will be able to retrn 23 mpg in a combined cycle (20 mpg city and 29 mpg highway) meaning is consumes less than the 2012 Maxima, LaCrosse, Taurus and ES350 and the same as the 2011 Avalon or the 2012 TL.

Hyundai is also bragging about the increased head room and leg room it offers at the front when compared to the Maxima, LaCrosse, Avalon and Taurus, while in terms of standard equipment this new Korean sedan will be equipped with leather seats, heated and 10/8-way adjustable at the front, automatic dual climate control, Bluetooth connectivity, satellite navigation and a rearview parking camera.
