The Azera 4dr is quite affordable, has awesome fuel economy, and a very low cost of ownership, making it a tough competitor in its segment. But, the Kia Cadenza Premium, Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV, and Chevrolet Impala Premium are also no less when it comes to power and design.

2017 Hyundai Azera Pricing and Features

7.5/10

The Hyundai Azera is a cost-effective luxury sedan and is kept in an affordable price bracket to reach a wide range of customers. The standard Hyundai Azera 4dr costs $34,100 and has a higher trim level the Azera Limited 4dr for $39,300, which is its top-tier model. Other than having only two trim levels, it offers only one optional package.

The standard Azera features a blue link connected care system, standard infotainment features with SiriusXM travel link, navigation, a rearview camera, and a touch-screen display. It has an electroluminescent gauge cluster, amplitude selective dampers, and a manual shift mode. For an additional $5,200, you get HID xenon lamps, LED fog light, bigger tires, and a couple of extra features for the top tier.

We recommend

We believe that the base Hyundai Azera model is one to go for. No matter, there are more features available with the Limited trim, but the base trim is value for money. You can literally save thousands of bucks by excluding features like power rear sunshades, LED fog lights, and a panoramic sunroof.

2017 Hyundai Azera Engine and Performance

6.7/10

The 2017 Hyundai Azera features a 3.3L V6 engine that produces 293 hp and 255 ft.-lbs. of torque. This 6-cylinder powerhouse is paired with a SHIFTRONIC 6-speed automatic transmission and a front-wheel drivetrain. Well, no doubt that the engine is powerful and it accelerates fast as well, and having a SHIFTRONIC transmission, you get a manual mode with a front-wheel drivetrain.

All that power is enough to satisfy most of the drivers but it still lacks the fun. Moving up to the competition, there is not much difference in the numbers as the 2017 Chevrolet Impala Premium is the best in the class with a power output of 305 hp. Whereas the Kia Cadenza generates the least power of 290 hp. As for the Hyundai, it has a great power output as well with 300 hp. 

How quick is the 0-60 mph acceleration of the 2017 Hyundai Azera?

The Azera is an easy-going calm driving sedan and it does not offer that level of performance you expect from a V6 but it got quite a punch for a full-size family 4dr sedan. The Hyundai Azera races from 0-60 mph in 6.2 sec and can do a quarter-mile in 15 sec. Well having a manual shift does make driving a bit fun though.

The Hyundai Azera is not the best when it comes to competition. The Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV featuring a 300hp V6 hits 0-60 in just 5.6 sec followed by the Chevrolet Impala Premium at 5.9 sec. Even if you consider the numbers there is not much difference between the powerhouses but in the case of performance, they have a different story.

How is the Handling and Steering performance of the 2017 Hyundai Azera?

The Hyundai Azera is an easy-going sedan, it has a front-wheel drivetrain with a 6-speed automatic along with power steering and cruise control. Well, in terms of handling, it is quite precise and responsive, offers smooth cornering and a hassle-free city ride. The manual mode is also available to make the ride a bit livelier.

Well, the Azera has a lot to impress when it comes to visibility, ride quality, comfort and is a good companion for long-distance traveling as well, but it lacks the punch or thrill of having a V6 and is not that impressive when it comes to vehicle dynamics.

How is the braking performance of the 2017 Hyundai Azera?

The Hyundai Azera 4dr Sedan features a 12.6 inch ventilated front and 11.2-inch solid rear disc brakes along with stability control, traction control, and emergency braking assist. The Hyundai Azera weighs 3,684 lbs, and for a calm powerhouse, it has quite an effective braking system. Compared to the competition it's not the best but not the least as well.

All of the vehicles in the comparison have a similar brake setup with 12.6 inches in front, while the Impala has the biggest brak at the rear. The Impala and the Kia Cadenza has the best braking distance of 120 ft from 60 mph. It is followed by the Nissan Maxima, which takes 123 ft to come to a standstill from 60 mph. 

2017 Hyundai Azera Fuel Economy

6.9/10

The Azera features a 3.3L V6, and V6 are not good in terms of fuel efficiency but the Azera manages to offer a handsome mileage of 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway with a combined mileage of 23 mpg. Well, the fuel economy does vary depending on several factors but it is still impressive.

The Azera is pretty efficient but it is not the best in the class when it comes to fuel efficiency, as the Nissan Maxima again leads the segment offering a combined mileage of 25 mpg followed by the Hyundai Azera and Kia Cadenza with a combined mileage of 23 mpg and 22 mpg respectively. 

2017 Hyundai Azera Interior

6.5/10

The Azera is a mid-range 4dr luxury sedan that can accommodate 5 people. Well, the rear seats get a bit tight if you have 3 adults, but you won't be complaining about the headroom or the legroom. As far as the design goes, it is simple, modern, luxurious, and quite detailed. If we compare the interior spacing of the competitors, the Hyundai and Kia have the best headroom and legroom in the front. But the rest two are not far behind, and all of these vehicles provide generous space for all the passengers inside the cabin.

2017 Hyundai Azera Competition

7.4/10

Hyundai Azera VS Kia Cadenza

Both the 2017 Azera and the Kia Cadenza are powered with a 3.3L V6 engine. With the 6-speed automatic transmission, the Azera seems to be far better than the Cadenza's 8-speed automatic transmission. Overall, the Azera is great at handling and driving around corners. For this price, the standard features available with the 2017 Azera is completely justified while some important features are missing on the Kia Cadenza. In fact, you need to pay extra to get the driver awareness system in the Cadenza. All in all, the 2017 Hyundai Azera is a luxury cum performance car. The difference in standard features makes the Azera right pick here.

Hyundai Azera VS Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr

The Nissan Maxima 3.5 SV 4dr is actually the most insane car in this bracket. With a price tag of $34,890, the Maxima features a 3.5 V6 that produces 300hp and offers the best in class performance. Well the Maxima SV is actually the best in class sedan and even in the head-on comparison, the Maxima has a better powerhouse, better performance, and better fuel efficiency. It just has a bit smaller body and a smaller cargo area. Other than that, the maxima exceeds the Azera even in interior styling, comfort, and options and trim levels.

Hyundai Azera VS Chevrolet Impala Premium 4dr

The Chevrolet Impala Premium 4dr is a modern luxury sedan just like the Azera. It has bold styling, a classy interior, and a price tag of $35,845, which makes it the most costlier in the whole segment. Well, the Impala is better than the Azera in many aspects, it has the most powerful engine, better performance, acceptable fuel efficiency, bigger cargo space with a huge body. On head-on comparison, the only aspect Hyundai Azera is better than the Impala Premium is the slightly better fuel economy.

2017 Hyundai Azera Final Verdict

The Hyundai Azera is the most cost-efficient vehicle in this whole segment. It has awesome practicality, low cost of ownership is quite powerful, offers impressive fuel economy, has a bigger boot, stylish exterior, and modern well-loaded interior. The Azera stands up to the standards of a mid-range luxury sedan but is not the best when it comes to competition.

The lack of vehicle dynamics, trim levels, and options sure put a major drawback. But its refined powerhouse, smooth rides, comfortable interiors, well-loaded infotainment system, hi-end safety system, as well as long-range capability, are what makes it really special in its class. It might not be a winner on paper, but it's the true winner on roads.
