Wife purchased this car because "it's sexy, looks like a Lexus, has more features than a Lexus, costs thousands less, has twice the warranty and offers a panoramic roof!".. Ok, can't argue with that.
So with that she drove home a 2013 Hyper Silver with Black interior Azera with the optional "Tech Package" which gave her the HD Nav screen, Pano roof, heated/cooled seats, 550W Infinity sound system and a list of other features.
I do have to say that I'm impressed!
I've owned/driven 5-7 Series BMW's, Lexus ES, Toyota Avalon, Cadillacs and this car is truely amazing for the money.
I can't believe they don't sell more of them.
Quiet, smooth, enough power and SAFE - 9 Airbags including knees!
Features: Pano roof, Infinity system, Bluelink, cooled seats, cool blue ambient interior lighting, LED headlights, huge trunk, large cup holders and rear seat room.
Ride: Incredible - seats more comfortable than re-designed Avalon or Lexus ES.
Ambient Interior Lighting - Way cool!
After being spoiled by BMW's steering for 5 years, this feels very disconnected but once used to it, it's not awful.
Just wished it had more road "feedback" steering wheel to driver.
WIPERS: Rain Sensing Wipers!
Has everything but the kitchen sink....and THIS feature!
ENGINE: A little more low end grunt (i.e. more torque).
If this car sticks around, I'd be willing to trade in about 2 years for a 2015 "Azera Ppalli" model with turbo charger / supercharger which would give this beast about 400hp/350ftlbs Torque.
