2007 Hyundai Azera: I'm So Spoiled
January 04, 2007
I drove the Azera last night. My first impression was that it was faux nice. The Sonata got away with it but the Azera seemed like a little kid playing dress up.
But after driving it about 40 miles, I realized it really is a nice car.
It's comfortable, roomy and filled with luxury features you would expect in a pricier sedan.
In fact, I drove a Cadillac a few days ago that had all the same interior features, like heated seats, tilt and telescopic steering wheel, seat memory controls, etc. But the Cadillac costs way more. And the Azera drove better too. Strong, smooth acceleration. Not at all scary in curves.
We drive so many cars here, that sometimes we lose sight of how much they actually cost. Our Azera stickers under $30K. Can't get a Caddy for that.
So, my apologies to Hyundai. Nice car.
