2009 Hyundai Azera Review

The 2009 Hyundai Azera is a practical large car with solid interior quality and space, however, other full-sized sedans offer better safety scores.

Pros & Cons

  • Very spacious interior with solid fit and finish
  • Good stereo system
  • Ride too firm for some
  • Bland, uninspired exterior styling

2009 Hyundai Azera Overview

When it was new, most reviewers were impressed with the 2009 Hyundai Azera’s spacious cabin, interior quality and engine performance. Still, other large cars have better safety ratings. The Azera won’t wow anyone with its exterior styling or handling, but reviewers felt that it was a practical choice for large car shoppers. The Azera is largely unchanged from the 2008 model, so you might want to shop older models to save money.

When it was new, reviewers liked the numerous standard and optional features on the Azera. The Azera’s interior can comfortably accommodate five with plenty of room, but reviewers took issue with the lack of headroom for taller drivers. Still, most test drivers found the seats to be comfortable, even on long trips. The Azera has a decent amount of cargo space, although some other large cars have larger trunks. The Azera’s biggest demerit, however, are likely its poor safety score that’s slightly below the class average.   

The base Azera includes power front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control and a six-speaker CD player with a USB jack and satellite radio. The Azera Limited adds standard heated front seats, leather upholstery, a sunroof and a 10-speaker Infinity stereo system. The base Azera comes with a 3.3-liter V6 engine, while Limited models have a more powerful 3.8-liter V6. Regardless of which model you choose, the engine is paired to a five-speed automatic transmission and front-wheel drive.

Other Cars to Consider

A spacious interior make the 2009 Buick Lucerne worth your consideration. Although the Azera beats the Lucerne with slightly better fuel economy and more tech features, the Lucerne offers more trunk space and can seat up to six when equipped with a front bench seat.

Reviewers believed that the highly-rated 2009 Toyota Avalon offered better performance and had a more refined interior than the Azera. The Avalon also outpaces the Azera with its excellent safety scores and slightly better fuel economy.
