For 2015, the Hyundai Azera sedan gains more safety features, such as Blind Spot Detection and Lane Change Assist. Last year's packages are rolled into each trim's standard-equipment list, while a hands-free Smart Trunk Opener is added. A new 8-inch LCD navigation/multimedia interface is standard and includes Google POI search and Apple's Eyes-Free Siri integration.
For 2014, Hyundai drops the Azera's price by nearly $1,300, reconfigures some of its content, and adds a new base model that includes a 6-inch color LCD audio display, a rearview camera and a driver's blind-spot mirror. The Limited trim gains a new 8-inch navigation system and power-folding side mirrors.
Hyundai excels at offering more style, more features and more power for less money than the competition. With the 2015 Azera luxury sedan, the company's outdone itself. While one look might have you believing the Azera is a $50,000 high-end European luxury car, the truth is it costs about the same as a nicely equipped Honda Accord or Toyota Avalon. The Azera sedan delivers great power and impressive fuel economy, as well as cutting-edge safety systems such as Blind Spot detection, Lane Change Assist and Forward Collision Warning. While it may not be as sporty as a Nissan Maxima or Volkswagen CC, for the way the majority of people drive their cars, Hyundai's 2015 Azera luxury sedan is more than sufficient.
