The Hyundai Azera, introduced to the U.S. market in 2006, is a near-full-size sedan that shares a platform with the midsize Hyundai Sonata. The Azera was the automaker's flagship model in the U.S. until the Genesis Sedan arrived here in 2008. For 2011, Hyundai introduced a new transmission, added power, improved fuel efficiency, and updated the grille, wheels, and exterior trim on the Azera.

The 2011 Hyundai Azera is available in two trim levels: GLS and Limited. The base GLS model has 17-inch alloy wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, full power accessories, heated side mirrors, woodgrain interior accents, leather-wrapped steering wheel and gearshift knob, and a sound system that features 6 speakers, an in-dash CD changer, satellite radio, and iPod/USB connections. A sunroof, leather upholstery, and heated front seats are optional on the GLS. The Azera Limited includes those options as standard equipment, and adds a larger, more powerful engine and other luxury-oriented upgrades, including a wood-trimmed steering wheel and premium Infinity sound system. For audiophiles, an ultra-premium Infinity system is optional on the Limited model, as are a navigation system and Bluetooth connectivity.

The 2011 Hyundai Azera GLS employs a 260-horsepower, 3.3-liter V-6 engine that produces 226 lb.-ft. of torque and delivers 20 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. The Azera Limited has a 283-horsepower, 3.8-liter V-6 engine that makes 257 lb.-ft. of torque and delivers 19 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Front-wheel drive and a 6-speed automatic transmission are standard on both Azera trims.

Standard safety features on the 2011 Hyundai Azera include anti-lock disc brakes, traction control, stability control, front side air bags, rear outboard side air bags, side curtain air bags, and active front head restraints. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) gave the 2011 Azera a "Good" rating for frontal-offset collisions and "Acceptable" ratings for both side- and rear-impact crash protection.

Starting MSRP for the 2011 Hyundai Azera is $25,495.
