2014 Hyundai Azera: Lower Price, More Features

By | December 20, 2013
Hyundai's Azera large sedan could use a sales boost; only 512 models were sold last month, compared to the 751 sold during the same month a year ago. To increase the Azera's presence in its segment, Hyundai has slashed the base price of the model by $1,250 for the upcoming model year. At the same time, the automaker tacked on more standard features and even a brand new trim level. The base Azera, now priced at $31,000, comes standard with new features such as a 6-inch color LCD display and rearview backup camera. Other tack-on standard features include a driver blind spot mirror and three years of Hyundai Assurance Connected Care for automatic collision notification and other safety features. A Limited trim is new for 2014 and starts at $34,750. Drivers who opt for this trim will receive an 8-inch navigation screen with color LCD trip computer, illuminated gauge cluster, and power-folding side mirrors. The Limited also offers ventilated front seats with fans that circulate air through the perforated leather seats.
Both models feature a 3.3-liter GDI V-6 engine, the same as last year's model. Horsepower comes in at a healthy 293 ponies and torque is rated at 255 lb-ft. The car achieves 19/29 mpg city/highway, putting it at the middle of the pack in its segment. Source: Hyundai
