Hyundai introduces 2012 Azera sedan at the ongoing Los Angeles International Auto Show!
On the heels of record US sales, Hyundai Motor Company unveiled a brand-new Azera near-luxury sedan today. The stylish front-wheel-drive Hyundai sedan, which replaces the slow-selling predecessor, is displayed at the 2011 L.A. Auto Show alongside other Hyundai vehicles, including new Accent hatch, Elantra sedan and Hyundai Sonata hybrid.
The new Hyundai Azera 2012 is more stylish than the outgoing model and features Hyundai's "Fluidic Sculpture" design language.
It sports sophisticated exterior look and comfortable interior, along with more powerful 3,3L GDI Lambda V6 engine, mated to the in-house developed six-speed automatic transmission, and best-in-segment fuel economy.
The all-new Hyundai Azera 2012 Model Year fuel economy is rated at 20 mpg city / 29 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined. This is better than with many of its main rivals, including Ford Taurus, Nissan Maxima and even Lexus ES350.
The 2012 Hyundai Azera also features latest safety equipment which includes 9 air-bags. Previous generation Azera "only" had six of them, while the new model offers three more. The most interesting one is a driver's knee airbag!
Other safety features on the 2012 Hyundai near-luxury sedan include standard VSM, ESC, TCS, ABS with Brake Assist and EBD systems. In addition, the all-new Azera hosts a plethora of luxury features such as HID Xenon headlights with LED accents, ventilated front seats, navigation system with rearview camera and many others.
The new Hyundai Azera is scheduled to go on sale in the USA early next year. First model will start arriving to Hyundai dealerships already in February 2012.
