Which Azera does Edmunds recommend?
Edmunds' Expert Review
Overall rating3.5 / 5
With a likable combination of style, comfort and utility, the 2017 Hyundai Azera is a large sedan with a lot going for it. As you'd expect, the cabin is quiet, with lots of space to stretch out inside. What's more, it comes with quite a bit of standard equipment. Even a base Azera comes with upscale items such as leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and blind-spot monitoring.
The Azera does have a few drawbacks, though. The V6 is the only engine you can get; Hyundai doesn't offer a more efficient four-cylinder or hybrid. You also can't get all-wheel drive with the Azera; many rival sedans give you a choice. Some of those rivals boast newer redesigns as well. For its part, this latest-generation Azera is near the end of its lifecycle, having last been redesigned in 2012. Still, the 2017 Hyundai Azera has appealing qualities, and we think it's worth a look if you're shopping for a well-equipped large sedan.
Hyundai Azera models
The 2017 Hyundai Azera is a large sedan offered in base and Limited trim levels. It's reasonably priced, comfortable and offers lots of standard equipment. The Limited trim level will likely appeal to safety-conscious buyers because it comes with lane departure warning and forward collision warning.
The lowest trim level on the Azera may be called the base, but don't let that fool you. It comes with a lot of features. Standard equipment includes a 3.3-liter V6 engine (293 horsepower, 255 pound-feet of torque), a six-speed automatic transmission, 18-inch wheels, heated mirrors, blind-spot monitoring (with rear cross-traffic alert), keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power front seats, driver-seat memory settings, a power-adjustable steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats (with 60/40-split folding capability), a chilled glovebox, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and a hands-free automatic-opening trunk.
Electronics features include Bluetooth connectivity, an 8-inch touchscreen interface, a navigation system, a rearview camera, Hyundai's Blue Link emergency communications, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone app integration, and a 14-speaker Infinity audio system with satellite radio.
For a few more amenities and some additional safety equipment, you can upgrade to the Azera's Limited trim level. It adds 19-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights with automatic high-beam control, adaptive cruise control, lane departure and forward collision warning systems, rear parking sensors, a panoramic sunroof, a power rear sunshade and manual side-window sunshades.
Each vehicle typically comes in multiple versions, although trim levels share many aspects. The ratings in this review are based on our full test of the 2012 Hyundai Azera (3.3L V6 | 6-speed automatic | FWD) in base trim.
NOTE: Since this test was conducted, the current Hyundai Azera has received some revisions, including retuned steering, revised styling, a larger central touchscreen, and added safety equipment such as a blind-spot monitoring system and forward collision warning. Our findings remain broadly applicable to this year's Hyundai Azera, however.

Bought mine Hyundai Certified July, 2019 with under 10k miles on it. Like a brand new car for under $25k. Comfortable, safe, and peppy. Easy with the 6 to get out of people's way, and no Turbo, so better long term reliability prospects. Been great so far - the Infinity Logic 14 speaker sound really rocks and I am an audiophile! The Limited has those extra wow features some cars that cost $50k do not have.
its a great car but it likes to under steer under pressure.

More about the 2017 Hyundai Azera
If you're looking for a roomy, well-equipped sedan, the 2017 Hyundai Azera is worth considering. And though other full-size sedans give you multiple engine, trim levels and even appearance choices that can fundamentally alter the car, the Azera is as close to a one-stop shop as you can get. As such, you can be assured that the car you're considering has a strong engine and an almost unbeatable number of features for the money, plus a lengthy, industry-leading warranty and the ample space you expect from this segment.
The Azera keeps things refreshingly simple, but that hefty features list does elevate the price point higher than for some rivals. It certainly elevates it into luxury territory, which leads us to our next possible demerit: interior quality that really isn't much better than lesser Hyundai sedans. It feels less special inside than rivals can.
Fuel economy also falls short of the class best. Every Azera comes with a 3.3-liter V6 engine good for 293 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque, plus a six-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive. EPA-estimated fuel economy with the base trim is 23 mpg combined (20 city/28 highway). Opting for the Limited trim drops those figures to 22 mpg combined (19 city/28 highway).
But again, the 2017 Azera does include a lot of standard equipment. Even the base trim includes keyless ignition and entry, blind-spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic alert systems, leather upholstery, heated and ventilated power front seats, driver-seat memory settings, a power-adjustable steering wheel, heated rear seats, a hands-free power trunklid, an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and a 14-speaker Infinity sound system. You simply won't be able to find that many amenities at this price in a car this big. If you want more, the Limited trim adds accident-avoidance tech features, xenon headlights, bigger wheels and some sunshades, but the base model ultimately seems like a better buy.
If you're looking to get the most car for your money, the 2017 Hyundai Azera is a very smart choice. It even looks pretty good for a car that's otherwise such a rational purchase. To find out more about the Azera and how you might increase its value proposition even further by getting a great price, make sure to check out Edmunds' pricing and inventory tools.

Should I lease or buy a 2017 Hyundai Azera?
Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
