Hyundais Azera tops mileage list
Monday, March 26, 2012
The 2012 Hyundai Azera was redesigned to appeal to eyes and bank accounts. Attractive design elements inside and out along side a competitive price are not all this premium Hyundai sedan has to offer. The large sedan gets an impressive 20 mpg city and 29 mpg highway.

The 2012 Hyundai Azera isn't a hybrid or a luxury-branded car. But it's tops among 2012 non-diesel, non-hybrid large sedans in government fuel economy ratings with 20 miles a gallon in city driving and 29 mpg on the highway.
The new Azera also has so many standard luxury features, including 293-horsepower V-6, light-emitting diode headlight accents, navigation system and rearview camera with large, 7-inch, in-dashboard screen display, that it might be confused with a high-tech, luxury sedan.
The roomy Azera four door now is attractively styled like the smaller and better known Hyundai Sonata mid-size sedan and has more front-seat legroom -- a total of 45.5 inches -- than a Cadillac Escalade or Ford Expedition.
To be sure, the Azera doesn't have every luxury feature. The suspension doesn't offer driver-selectable settings, the automatic transmission has six speeds, not eight, and the car is front-wheel drive, for example.
But the Azera's starting retail price of $32,875 is more akin to prices for "premium" sedans, rather than big sedans from luxury brands that start upwards of $42,000.
In fact, the $32,875 Azera starting price includes luxury-like smooth leather-trimmed seats, sizable 18-inch alloy wheels, eight-way, power-adjustable front passenger seat, heated front and back seats, Bluetooth phone connectivity and driver seat adjustable lumbar, not to mention a cooled glovebox and nine air bags.
