2007 Hyundai Azera Limited 4dr Sedan w/XM (3.8L 6cyl 5A)
Researched for 3 months with test driving both Azera and Avalon. 18 years of Toyota ownership, the last 6 in Avalons, decided on the Azera. Felt that fit-and-finish,quietness, and power as good if not better than Avalon. Transmission and shifting was better than Avalon. We like the exterior and interior looks better than Avalon. Slight concern on reliability but with warranty not a big deal. Had to take Avalons in for reliability issues. Drive is not better or worse than Avalon just different, still very nice. We find the car fun to drive. You get a lot of features as standard features. Especially like that trunk size is 16.6 vs. Avalon's 14.0. cubic ft. Would recommend.
Folding mirrors, easy to reach controls, standard safety features such as ESC with TCS, ABS with Brake Assist and EBD. Fold down back seat,large trunk. Engine power and smooth transmission shifting.
Not much, metal interior door handles, a little better MPG.
