2017 Hyundai Azera Release Date, Price, News – In a segment long known for its conservative designs, for 2017 though, the Hyundai Azera brings lots of fresh styling and invigoration. Furthermore you get a long warranty coverage, hush and roomy cabin, plenty of standard features, large trunk, and a feature galore. Its date of release should be expected in July 2017.
Just like the prevailing sedans in the market today, the new Azera comes with a distinctive appearance and upscale feel, although it is cheapened by the shiny, brittle plastics the automaker has extensively used during its cabin construction. The center stack and dashboard design are appealing to say the least.
Users will also find its front seats to be very comfortable even during long trips due to their adjustability. Front and rear space is adequate, but 6-footers may find the headroom quite cramped. And with a whopping 16.3 cubic-foot of trunk space, passengers will not find any reason to worry about their cargo.
The entire lineup is provided with lots of desirable driver-assistance systems. The base, for example, comes equipped with upscale safety features like rear-cross traffic alert, and blind-spot warning system. The Limited trim ups the ante with features such as adaptive cruise control, frontal collision warning, and lane mitigation and warning systems.
Under the hood, Hyundai has equipped the Azera with a rather gutsy V6 powerplant rated at 293-hp. in overall, the ride quality is impressive although users may find the six-speed automatic transmission system a bit unresponsive. Otherwise, there is a nice balance between control, balance, and comfort.
Some of the reasons you should carefully consider before planning to buy Hyundai’s include a lacking all-wheel drive system option, and disappointing interior plastics. Many intriguing vehicles present in this once ho-hum segment include; the 2017 Toyota Avalon – this “A” rated sedan blends performance, quality and comfort to give you a satisfying and appealing ride quality. There is also a Hybrid model for the fuel-savvy clientele.
The retro-themed 2017 Chrysler 300 is hard to beat when it comes to its exterior design, comfort, and power. Although often overlooked, the 2017 Buick Lacrosse is one of the best sedans out there with its intricate mixture of comfort, fuel-economy, and class. Finally, both the 2017 Kia Cadenza and 2017 Chevrolet Impala offer better fuel economy and space. Even so, the Azera still remains a solid pick in this segment of corporate sedans.
