2007 Hyundai Azera: The art of comfort
April 30, 2007
After sitting in the back of our long-term Hyundai Azera recently, I realized why rear-seat comfort is a reason why someone should consider buying a family sedan instead of the increasingly popular choice of a crossover SUV. Thanks to plenty of thigh support and legroom, decent lumbar support and contoured cushions, the Azera's seat passes my personal, "can I foresee myself falling asleep back here?" test.
In contrast, many crossovers share a dirty little secret. Their second-row seats, in meeting the modern goal of folding/flipping/packaging nirvana, are flat, hard, and as figet-inducing as wedged-up underwear...
The Azera might not have all-wheel drive and a boxy cargo hold, but for a vehicle that frequently transports adults for extended periods, I'd glady choose Hyundai's flagship.
