2007 Hyundai Azera: Long-Term Hyundai Azera Beats Revised EPA Fuel Economy Estimates
June 12, 2007
Buyers who choose the 2007 Hyundai Azera may get more than they bargained for -- in a good way, of course. Why? Based on our observations so far, our long-term sedan doesn't just match the EPA's combined fuel economy ratings -- it beats them.
Revised EPA ratings give the Azera an estimated 17 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway, with a combined rating of 20 mpg. With 13,155 miles on the odometer, our Azera has a combined lifetime average of just over 21 mpg.
This impressive figure no doubt owes much gratitude to the fact that the Azera has logged plenty of highway miles thus far, with a couple of trips to sun-baked Arizona and a mad Christmastime dash to the snowy peaks of Colorado.
Big round of applause for the EPA, for finally giving us ratings with real-world usefulness. Read our story Explained: 2008 EPA Fuel Economy Ratings to get the scoop on the new ratings system.
