Review of the 2007 Hyundai Azera

  • Like other Hyundais, the Azera is a value leader in its segment, offering a price tag that undercuts top competitors. But the 2007 Hyundai Azera is more just than a good deal: It feels like a premium car on the inside and delivers on that promise when you actually drive it.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Attractive interior design with high-end materials, tight construction, quiet and composed ride, low price, outstanding warranty.

  • Cons

    Unimpressive fuel economy with 3.8-liter V6, seating position is too high for some, soft handling, navigation system isn't available.

  • What's New for 2007

    The Hyundai Azera returns for 2007 with just a couple of minor revisions and a new entry-level GLS trim. The electroluminescent instrumentation in Limited models has a cleaner design this year. Additionally, all models now get standard steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and a tire-pressure monitor.

What-a-car

Vehicle: 2007 Hyundai Azera GLS 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

I bought this car with 3k mi on it, original owners decided they wanted the Limited. I have the 3.3lt engine which provides 253HP. Very quick and nimble,20mpg in town and 30+ on the highway! Kind of wish i had the 3.8 engine but mileage would suffer. It could use a little more noise dampening and that's about it. Its a full size car, lots of room with a large trunk capacity. Terrific car!

I have owned Hyundais since 2000, and my wife has since 2006. I opted for the Azera as my most recent option, and I have been pleasantly surprised with the comfort, style and general reliability of this car. I've come to expect more from Hyundai, and they deliver.




3-month report

Vehicle: 2007 Hyundai Azera GLS 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

I now have 8,000 miles on my Azera and have loved every minute of driving. Currently showing 26.5 average MPG. People who ride in it can not believe how quiet the engine is and the back seat leg room.




Love it!!!!

Vehicle: 2007 Hyundai Azera GLS 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

I was looking for a car I could drive 25,000 per year and was fuel efficient. I was looking at the 2008 Sonata and to get the features I wanted I had to get the Limited with the leather. The salesman asked me to see if I would consider another car so he showed me the Azera. I am so glad he did. This car has tons of room and extremely quiet. Co-workers have quickly commented on how quiet it is. With about 1300 miles on the car I am averaging 27.3 mpg according to the trip computer. I love the cloth seats because living in Florida with leather can be a challenge for the bottom. The seats are very comfy The A/C cools the car quickly. I would highly recommend this car!!




Best of the best

Vehicle: 2007 Hyundai Azera GLS 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

The Azera is the finest car we have had it bows my Infiniti away in all areas. We have had many Luxury cars and never thought we would buy a Hyundai. One test drive and it was over. No problems at all execellent gas millage. Puts Cad. Lexus,Infinity,Buick and all other cars we have had to shame.




No sedan can ever compete

Vehicle: 2007 Hyundai Azera GLS 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 5A)

New azera 2007 offers a new class of luxury, comfort, performance and safety. while driving you hear no voice. one of the posetive points is the shift trounic gear box and the only negative point is the lack of gps. 7 mounthes before buying my 2007 azera , i used to own a 2007 3.5 xle camry but the the performance was owful , cabin wax noisy, seats were not ergonomic , performance of gearbox was odd. of course it had some good points like gps but the dvd was awful.If i was supposed to decide again between camry & azera i would certaily choose azera again.

Full 2007 Hyundai Azera Review

What's New for 2007

The Hyundai Azera returns for 2007 with just a couple of minor revisions and a new entry-level GLS trim. The electroluminescent instrumentation in Limited models has a cleaner design this year. Additionally, all models now get standard steering-wheel-mounted audio controls and a tire-pressure monitor.

Introduction

Hyundai's first attempt to go after the big boys of the sedan world came in 2001 when it introduced the XG300 (later renamed the XG350). Armed with a lengthy standard features list, the XG was meant to be a budget alternative to segment leaders like the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. The car's bland looks and uninspired performance made this effort a failure, but Hyundai was undeterred. The company returned to the drawing board, replacing the XG with an all-new model, the Azera, in 2006.

The second time's the charm, it seems, for the 2007 Hyundai Azera is much more universally appealing than its middling predecessor. Longer and wider, this Hyundai sets its sights on the full-size-sedan market, with as much real-world interior room as cars like the Toyota Avalon, Chrysler 300 and Buick Lucerne.

The Azera may be inexpensive, but don't think that means it looks or feels cheap. With its tasteful chrome grille and crisp body lines, this sedan looks more like an Acura than a Hyundai. Inside, things are similarly upscale. With tasteful use of faux wood and metallic piping, the Azera's cabin is pleasing to look at and brimming with a full complement of available premium features, such as rain-sensing wipers and a power-tilt/telescoping steering wheel. On the road, this Hyundai rides and handles with a poise and refinement that belies its modest price tag.

So how does the 2007 Hyundai Azera stack up against segment leaders like the Avalon and 300? Well, the Toyota is still the way to go if you plan to put three people in the backseat (because of its flat rear floor) or you desire high-end features like a navigation system and adaptive cruise control. And the rear-drive Chrysler will be more appealing to buyers for whom style and performance are most important. However, for full-size sedan buyers whose tastes fall somewhere in the middle, the Azera is a strong candidate. It's stylish yet unassuming, comfortable yet agile, and luxurious yet modestly priced.

Body Styles, Trim Levels, and Options

A full-size sedan, the 2007 Hyundai Azera comes in three generously equipped trim levels: GLS, SE and Limited. The GLS comes with full power accessories (including front seats), air-conditioning, auto-dimming rearview mirror and a six-speaker audio system with CD player. The SE adds chrome body accents, 17-inch alloy wheels, automatic dual-zone climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shifter, and heated mirrors. The Limited sweetens the pot by adding leather upholstery, heated front seats, wood-grain interior trim, electroluminescent gauges and a power rear sunshade.

The SE is eligible for the Premium and Leather Package, which provides leather upholstery, heated front seats, a 10-speaker Infinity sound system with CD changer and a sunroof. Azera Limited buyers may choose a Premium Package that includes the Infinity stereo and the sunroof. The Limited also offers the pricier Ultimate Package, which includes the sunroof, a more powerful stereo, a power tilt-telescoping steering wheel, power-adjustable pedals, rain-sensing wipers, power-folding outside mirrors and memory settings for the driver.

Powertrains and Performance

The GLS comes with a 3.3-liter V6 making a respectable 234 horsepower while the SE and Limited trims boast a 3.8-liter V6 rated at 263 hp. Both V6s send their power to the front wheels through a five-speed automatic transmission that offers a manual mode. We've timed an Azera Limited at 7.1 seconds for the 0-60-mph run. Fuel economy for the 3.3 rates 21 city and 28 highway, with the 3.8 rating 19 and 28, respectively. Our experience with our long-term Limited has shown that Azera is hard-pressed to break 20 mpg in mixed driving.

Safety

Hyundai equips every Azera with antilock disc brakes, traction control, stability control, active front head restraints, front-seat side airbags and full-length side curtain airbags. The 2007 Hyundai Azera scored four out of five stars in NHTSA frontal-impact crash tests and received a perfect five stars in side-impact crash testing. In IIHS tests, the Azera earned a top score of "Good" for its protection of passengers in frontal offset crashes, and a score of "Acceptable" (the second-highest rating) in side-impact testing.

Interior Design and Special Features

Hyundai infuses the Azera's cabin with robust doses of luxury. With good-looking faux wood and metallic piping, materials quality is above reproach, and those who opt for leather seating will find themselves swaddled in soft, double-stitched hide. And the car is roomy enough to allow an L.A. Laker to ride in comfort. With 44 inches of front passenger legroom, the Azera has the highest measured front legroom in its class. Those seated in the rear get 38 inches. One of our few complaints about the Hyundai's interior concerns the overly high seating position up front, which can be awkward for taller drivers with long torsos.

Driving Impressions

For the money, the 2007 Hyundai Azera offers impressive levels of refinement and composure. Road noise is minimal even at high speeds, allowing for quiet conversations in the cabin. Although this Hyundai never feels as athletic as cars like the Nissan Maxima and Chrysler 300, acceleration is brisk, and there's always ample power on tap from the V6. The Azera's handling is on the soft side; however, the car feels predictable and secure around turns and the steering has a slick, accurate feel. For buyers more interested in comfort than sportiness, the confident Azera won't disappoint.
