The 2012 Hyundai Azera made its debut today at the LA Auto Show. The second generation Azera is the latest Hyundai model to receive the company’s fluidic sculpture styling treatment currently found on the Sonata and Elantra. Underneath the curvy new sheetmetal is an all-new 3.3-liter V6 engine that produces 293 horsepower. Paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, Hyundai says the 2012 Azera should achieve 20/29 mpg city/highway.
The 2012 Hyundai Azera comes standard with heated leather front and rear seats, while ventilated front seats are optional. Other standard features include dual-zone climate control and a cooled glovebox. If you’re looking to block out the sun, the Azera offers a power-retractable rear sunshade and manual side sunshades. For those looking for more sunlight to flood the cabin, a panoramic sunroof is optional.
