2007 Hyundai Azera Reviews

Vehicle Overview
Introduced at an off-site presentation during the 2005 New York Auto Show, the full-size Azera features graceful four-door lines that the automaker says are aerodynamically efficient. The Azera debuted for the 2006 model year, and changes to the 2007 version are minor.

A 3.8-liter V-6 produces 263 horsepower, which is a big boost over the output in the XG350 — which the Azera replaced — and more horsepower than what's currently available under the hood of the Ford Five Hundred or Buick LaCrosse. The Azera includes eight airbags.

Two trim levels are available: SE and Limited. Available features include a powered tilt/telescoping steering column, a powered rear sunshade and leather upholstery.

The Azera's large trapezoidal grille has horizontal bars and incorporates a Hyundai logo in the center. Wide headlight units wrap around into the front fenders. Clear-lens rectangular fog lamps sit low on the front fascia. SE sedans have body-colored side moldings, versus chrome moldings and chrome-trimmed bumpers on the Limited model.

Built on a 109.4-inch wheelbase, the Azera measures 192.7 inches long overall, 72.8 inches wide and 58.7 inches tall. The Azera's fully independent suspension uses double wishbones at the front and a multilink configuration at the rear. Alloy wheels hold 17-inch tires on Limited models or 16-inch rubber on the SE sedan. The full-size spare tire is mounted on an alloy wheel. A power sunroof is standard on the Limited sedan and optional on other models. Side mirrors now incorporate turn signal indicators.

The Azera can seat up to five occupants. Each model's 60/40-split, folding rear seatback includes dual cupholders and storage space.

Standard amenities include dual-zone automatic climate control, power front seats, a manual tilt/telescoping steering column with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, remote keyless entry, a digital clock, a console armrest and cruise control. A power rear sunshade, leather seating surfaces and heated front seats go into Limited models. An engine immobilizer is included in all Azeras, and up-level models get a redesigned electroluminescent instrument cluster for 2007.

The Limited sedan also opens up a gamut of options, including a powered tilt/telescoping steering column, rain-sensing wipers, power-tilting side mirrors and power-adjustable pedals. A CD stereo with MP3 capability is standard in all trim levels, and the Limited gets an Infinity audio system with 10 speakers, a subwoofer and a six-CD changer.

Under the Hood
The Azera's all-aluminum 3.8-liter V-6 produces 263 hp at 6,000 rpm and 255 pounds-feet of torque at 4,500 rpm. The five-speed automatic transmission incorporates Shiftronic for manually selectable gear changes.

The Azera's complement of airbags includes seat-mounted side-impact airbags for both the front and rear and roof-mounted side curtain airbags. Active front head restraints are installed. All-disc antilock brakes incorporate electronic brake-force distribution. An electronic stability system and traction control are standard.

Warranties Explained


Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.


Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

Roadside Assistance

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

Free Scheduled Maintenance

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.
