Why This Post?

Hyundai Azera 2012 starting at $32,000 U.S. which is about $6,000 more than 2011 model. The South Korean automaker says that there are more standard features, and that’s what led to the higher sticker price. In this post, lets examine if the higher price tag was justified.

So ... what's new?

Expect standard goodies like heated front and back seats, brake assist, hard drive based navigation, stability control, nine airbags, push button start, and 18” alloy wheels.

Under the hood you’ll find a 3.3 liter GDI V6 engine, putting out a total of 293 horsepower. Hyundai says the 2012 Azera offers excellent gas mileage numbers within its class, with 20 miles per gallon in the city and 29 miles per gallon on the highway.

For an extra $4,000 you can purchase the technology package, which includes rear parking assistance, panoramic sunroof, memory seating system, Infinity premium speakers, subwoofer and amplifier, power rear sunshade, 19” alloy wheels, interior ambient lighting, telescopic steering column and HID xenon headlamps.

With the complete redesign and extra standard features, Hyundai hopes to better compete with vehicles like the Toyota Camry, Buick Avalon and Nissan Maxima.

OK, how about warranty?

It also comes with a 5-year or 60,000 mile new car warranty which is fully transferrable, a 10-year or 100,000 mile warranty on the powertrain and five years of Roadside Assistance at no cost. This is a standard feature for all Hyundai vehicles sold in the U.S.

Bottom Line?

Is the redesign and extra standard features enough to entice consumers to spend more of their hard earned money? Well, that's a hard nut to crack and I still believe Azera 2012 has a higher price tag considering the features and upgrade came from the 2011 Azera.
