Finally, a night out for the Hyundai Azera

February 22, 2007

Recent blog entries might have given the impression that our long-term 2007 Hyundai Azera does little more than putter around town and go to the car wash. Last night, though, the big sedan and I both got a life, motoring to LA's Melrose district to take in the nightlife. Naturally, I liked the fact that the Azera's light yet precise steering made it easy to park. The car's turning radius felt a bit large to me, but the specs have it at 37.4 feet, so I guess I've just been spoiled by driving smaller cars lately.

On the way home, both driver (me) and passenger (Production Editor Caroline Pardilla) were entertained by the V6's deepening exhaust note past 4,500 rpm. Merging onto the freeway took on an unexpected level of excitement.

Caroline also liked the design of the Azera's vents, as she was able to close their sturdy louvers completely when I flipped on the climate control.
