Great car
John T,12/28/2019
Limited 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 6A)
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. Gas mileage is mediocre but few cars get what is claimed especially with a lot of local driving. The seats are great - a thigh support extender, lumbar, the works.

Luxury and reliability
Limited 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 6A)
It was a car for me. Got a great deal as these cars lose value fast - Maybe because it's been discontinued and are not a very common model, despite being very reliable. I owned a 2007 Limited edition V6 3.8L from 2017 till 2021. Drove it from 74K miles to 120K miles - not even a single problem! What else can you expect from a 10+ year old car. It was recently totalled in a rear-end … accident but I am glad Azera was built well. I will miss this car.

Happy Azera owner
Vic's Azera,02/03/2022
Limited 4dr Sedan (3.3L 6cyl 6A)
This is my 4th Hyundai Azera Limited since they started selling in the USA in 2006. The 2017 Azera Limited is the best Hyundai I've owned since my first Hyundai purchase in 2000. It has all the features you would expect more expensive cars in it's class except all AWD. Im not really complaining though since I haven't been stuck in the snow with any Azera I've owned. My 2011 Azera Limited … which I still own does have a better sounding factory installed infinity sound system than my 2017 limited but it's still a decent sounding system. I really like that this one is roomier on the inside especially for the driver and passenger front the 19-in wheels are a very nice touch as well as heated front and rear seats and cooled seats in the front I do recommend the Hyundai Blue Link which gives you remote start among other things Android Auto and our Apple CarPlay is standard on the 2017 so that's a plus as well

Edmunds Summary Review of the 2017 Hyundai Azera Limited Sedan

Pros & Cons

  • Comes well equipped with convenience and technology features
  • Rides smoothly over bumps and rough roads
  • Interior is quiet on the highway
  • No option for all-wheel drive
  • Some brittle, shiny plastics cheapen upscale interior look

Which Azera does Edmunds recommend?

We think you'll be happy with the base 2017 Hyundai Azera. Yes, the Limited trim level offers lots of extra features, but the base trim level is very well equipped for the money. If you can do without items such as a panoramic sunroof, power rear sunshades and LED foglights, then you'll save several thousand dollars (when new) by going with the base Azera.

Full Edmunds Review: 2017 Hyundai Azera Sedan

What’s new

The 2017 Hyundai Azera carries over unchanged.

Vehicle overview

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.

2017 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.

Trim tested

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.


The Azera's 3.3-liter V6 is an effective powertrain, and the suspension does a pretty good job of balancing ride quality with handling precision.


If you're shopping for a large sedan with a comfortable ride, the Azera certainly fits the bill. The seats are a bit oddly shaped and hurt the Hyundai's score, but plenty of luxury items help smooth things over.


There's plenty of space inside the Azera and lots of upscale trimmings, but hard plastics give the otherwise-luxurious cabin a cheap feel. The optional panoramic sunroof eats up quite a bit of headroom.


Right in the middle of the large sedan segment, the Azera has decent trunk space, average small-item storage and a 60/40-split folding rear seat for transporting larger items.
