The new 2012 Hyundai Azera has quite a list of new standard features, which makes the base model 2012 a better outfitted car than the outgoing 2011 fully loaded Azera limited.
The 2012 Azera will have a base MSRP of $32,000 and top out at $36,000 when loaded with the technology package. New standard features on the Azera include push button start, 18-inch alloy wheels, LED headlight accents, a 3.3L GDI DOHC V6 with 293 horsepower, heated front and rear seats and Blue Link telematics system.
While the lengthy list of standard features on this car is noteworthy, you must also consider that the base MSRP of the outgoing Azera sat at $29,495,which means standard equipment got a boost, but so did the starting price.
The Azera will get 20 mpg city, 29 mpg highway and 23 mpg combined for fuel economy, which is best in class according to Hyundai. Hyundai’s Active Eco system is equipped on the new model and helps to improve fuel economy by five percent.
The Azera will be available with one upgrade – the technology package, which adds xenon headlights, sunroof, infinity premium audio package, a power adjustable steering column, side window shades, interior ambient lighting and rear parking assistance sensors.
