New for 2013
There are no significant changes for 2013.
Exterior
The Azera looks like a larger Sonata, complete with similar chrome strips running from the headlights to the base of the A-pillars. The distinction comes in back, where a red strip joins the Azera's taillights but raises them off the trunk for a floating effect. Exterior features include:

  • 18-inch alloy wheels standard; 19-inch wheels optional
  • Dual chrome exhaust tips
  • Fog lights
  • Optional xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
  • Optional panoramic moonroof

Interior
The five-seat cabin features a broad dashboard whose center controls splay into its upper reaches. Standard features include heated front and rear seats, leather upholstery, dual-zone automatic climate control and a 7-inch touch-screen navigation system. On the audio front, the Azera gets a standard iPod/USB-compatible CD stereo with Bluetooth phone control and audio streaming. The Azera also comes standard with Hyundai's Blue Link telematics system. Interior features include:

  • Tilt/telescoping leather-wrapped steering wheel with audio controls; power-adjustments optional
  • Cruise control
  • 60/40-split folding ba...

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.
