2010 Hyundai Azera Overview

By Cars.com Editors
Vehicle Overview
Hyundai's full-size sedan is available in base GLS and top-shelf Limited trims. The Azera competes with large sedans like the Toyota Avalon, Chrysler 300 and Buick Lucerne. Available luxuries include a powered tilt/telescoping steering column, a powered rear sunshade and leather upholstery.

New for 2010
The Limited trim gains additional standard equipment for 2010.

Exterior
The Azera's large trapezoidal grille has horizontal bars and incorporates a Hyundai logo in the center. Although one step above the Sonata, the Azera looks very much like a larger version of that sedan. The Azera has wide headlight units that wrap around into the front fenders. GLS sedans have body-colored side moldings, while Limited editions have turn signals integrated into the side mirrors.
  • 17-inch alloy wheels
  • Chrome grille
  • Fog lamps


Interior
The Azera can seat up to five occupants. A 60/40-split folding rear seatback and 12-volt outlets up front and in back are standard. The optional navigation system includes a 12-speaker surround-sound audio system.

Limited trim levels are better equipped with new standard features for 2010, including a power tilt/telescoping steering wheel; a memory system for the driver's seat, mirrors and steering wheel; and wood-grain trim for the steering wheel and inside door handles. That equipment is unavailable on the GLS.

Standard features include:
  • iPod/USB auxiliary inputs
  • Dual-zone automatic climate control
  • Power front seats
  • Manual tilt/telescop...

Great fit and finish in and out. I don't think there is a better highway cruser for the money. I'm used to European cars and the turning radius is not as tight, making it tough in Montgomery County's ... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

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.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

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.

What is included in 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).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

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.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
