The Hyundai Azera profits from reconsidered front and back styling and a without hands trunk opener for 2015. All models get a blind side cautioning framework with path change aid, while the 2015 Azera Constrained grabs a standard path takeoff cautioning framework, forward-impact cautioning framework and programmed front light high-bar control. A great part of the standard substance on a year ago's Restricted model has been moved to the base Azera. In the interim, the discretionary Premium bundle has been dispensed with and its substance added to the Azera Restricted as standard gear. Inside, there's a larger 8-inch central touchscreen, redesigned center stack and enhanced navigation and smartphone integration features.Apart from its long list of electronic features, the Azera's fundamental attributes also make it an estimable choice. Its standard 3.3-liter V6 engine is strong enough to please most buyers, and it's paired with an equally smooth six-speed automatic transmission. The ride is quite comfortable, and with ample front- and rear-passenger room and a cavernous trunk, you're all set for long road trips in Hyundai's full-size sedan.

However, there are now many intriguing choices in this once sleepy market segment. One of our favorites in this class is the Toyota Avalon, which has an appealing combination of comfort, quality and performance, along with a hybrid model for buyers who value fuel efficiency most of all . If comfort is your overriding priority, it's hard to beat the Chevrolet Impala or Buick LaCrosse, both of which offer a plush ride quality, an impressive features list and a four-cylinder engine option for buyers who want it. There's also the Kia Cadenza, which is related to the 2015 Azera and accordingly offers many of its attributes in a different wrapper.

Although the 2015 Hyundai Azera doesn't offer any major advantages over its rivals, it's a fine all-around pick for a large sedan, especially if you're drawn to its styling.The 2015 Hyundai Azera is a five-passenger full-size sedan offered in base and Limited trim levels.

Standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels, automatic headlights, foglights, heated mirrors, blind-spot monitoring (with rear cross-traffic alerts), keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, eight-way power front seats (with driver lumbar adjustment, seat-bottom extension and memory settings), a power-adjustable tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats (with 60/40-split folding capability), auto-dimming rearview mirror. Electronics features include Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, an 8-inch touchscreen interface with navigation and integrated smartphone apps (including Pandora and Siri Eyes Free), a rearview camera, Hyundai's Blue Link emergency communications and a 14-speaker Infinity audio system with satellite radio, a CD player and USB and auxiliary audio inputs.

The Azera Limited adds 19-inch alloy wheels, xenon headlights with automatic high-beam control, LED foglights, lane-departure and forward-collision warning systems, rear parking sensors, a panoramic sunroof, ambient interior lighting, a power rear sunshade and manual side-window sunshades.Standard safety features on the 2015 Hyundai Azera include antilock disc brakes, traction and stability control, front- and rear-seat side airbags, full-length side curtain airbags, a driver-side knee airbag and active front head restraints. All Azeras come with a rearview camera and a blind-spot monitoring system with rear cross-traffic alerts. The Azera Limited adds lane-departure and frontal-collision warning systems and rear parking sensors.

Hyundai's BlueLink system provides services such as remote access, emergency assistance, theft recovery and teen-driver-oriented features, such as curfew alert, speed alert and geo-fencing that provides notification when the vehicle travels outside a predetermined area.

In Edmunds brake testing, the Azera came to a stop from 60 mph in 126 feet, which is average in this class with all-season tires. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety awarded the Azera its highest score of "Good" for the car's performance in the moderate-overlap frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength tests. The Azera's seat/head restraint design was also rated "Good" for whiplash protection in rear impacts.Like most vehicles in this class, the 2015 Hyundai Azera's inside has a notably upscale feel and appearance, however its debased to a degree by the weak, sparkly plastics utilized here and there. In the event that you can move beyond that slip by, the configuration of the dashboard and the inside stack is engaging in its moderate execution, including the updated design for the core stack in the 2015 Azera that includes some welcome catches and handles for capacities (yes, there's even a tuning handle for the radio) that in the past obliged you to wade through the touchscreen's menus. The large  8-inch touchscreen electronics interface is notable for its crisp graphics, and it incorporates Google POI search, Siri Eyes Free voice controls,Pandora Internet radio and, for iPhone users.

Front-seat solace and backing in the 2015 Azera is great and the rich-looking standard punctured calfskin seats are both warmed and ventilated. Just exceptionally tall or expansive grown-ups will discover space ailing in any heading. The Hyundai's 16.3-cubic-foot trunk limit is near to fragment driving, and this trunk will effortlessly swallow extensive bags or a few sets of golf clubs.
