The Hyundai Azera has been lost amid the deafening praise for the company’s mid-size Sonata and luxurious Genesis and Equus large cars. While the Azera was briefly Hyundai’s top dog, but now occupies a strange spot as Hyundai’s premium sedan for people who don’t like rear-wheel drive.
But with the Sonata now moving to a strictly 4-cylinder engine lineup, the Azera can now occupy the 6-cylinder front-drive sedan slot. No details have been released regarding powertrains, but the corporate 3.8L Lambda V6 is the most obvious candidate. Styling is in the same vein as Hyundai’s new Elantra and Sonata, which will likely pave the way for a new “corporate look” for the automaker’s lineup.
