2015 Hyundai Azera Overview

Is the 2015 Hyundai Azera a Good Used Car?

The Hyundai Azera is a decent used large car. It comes loaded with standard features like leather upholstery, heated and ventilated seats, an infotainment system, and blind spot monitoring. The cabin is comfortable, offering occupants plenty of space to stretch out. This Hyundai is far from a driver's car, though. The standard V6 engine delivers unsatisfying acceleration, and a choppy ride and snooze-worthy handling further hurt this sedan's appeal.

There are no new large cars you can buy for what you might pay for a used 2015 Hyundai Azera. Consider stepping down to a midsize car like the 2019 Hyundai Sonata. It starts at $22,500, which is still in the range of list prices for the 2015 Azera. The Sonata has cutting-edge technology, and despite its midsize classification, it offers a roomy cabin and trunk space that is in line with what the Azera affords.

Which Model Year of the Hyundai Azera Is Best?

For 2015, Hyundai packed a bunch of newly standard features into the Azera, including an 8-inch touch-screen infotainment system, navigation, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, and an Infinity surround-sound stereo. You can still find these features in certain 2014 Azera models, you'll just have to look around.

The 2015 Azera also offers a decent list of driver assistance features, none of which were available in the 2014 model. These include blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, and automatic high beams. If these crash prevention features are important to you, stick with a 2015 Azera. Otherwise, you may be better off shopping for an older 2014 or 2013 Azera, which are less expensive in most cases.

What Does Hyundai's Certified Pre-Owned Warranty Cover?

Hyundai offers a certified pre-owned program for vehicles five years old or less and with fewer than 60,000 miles. Eligibility is determined by the vehicle’s initial sale date. Certified pre-owned Hyundai vehicles receive the balance of the original new-car 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty, as well as the remainder of the five-year/60,000-mile comprehensive warranty. Hyundai CPO vehicles must pass a 173-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing, roadside assistance, and rental car reimbursement may be available, so read Hyundai’s warranty page carefully.

Hyundai has one of the best CPO programs among affordable car manufacturers, according to our analysis. Only Kia, Buick, and Mitsubishi have better programs.

2015 Hyundai Azera Versus the Competition

Which Is Better: 2015 Hyundai Azera or 2015 Chevrolet Impala?

The 2015 Chevrolet Impala is a better car than the Azera in almost every way. This large Chevy boasts a solid engine lineup and balanced handling, and it has one of the largest trunks in the class. What's more, the Impala's average list price is roughly $1,100 lower than the Azera's. The Chevy will also save you around $1,150 over five years in select ownership expenses compared to the Azera. When it was new, we named the Impala our 2015 Best Large Car for the Money and 2015 Best Large Car for Families. Both sedans offer roomy cabins with comfortable seating, but the Impala brings more to the table.

Which Is Better: 2015 Hyundai Azera or 2015 Toyota Avalon?

The 2015 Toyota Avalon is another well-rounded large car, and it's a better pick than the Azera. The Avalon has a higher average price than the Azera by about $2,200, but the Toyota will cost you about $1,200 less for total five-year expenses. The Avalon has a more potent V6 as well as responsive steering and a comfortable ride. These cars have comparable trunk volumes and interior space, but the Avalon earns praise for its great build quality and elegant interior.

2015 Azera Performance

How Does the 2015 Hyundai Azera Drive?

Under the hood of the 2015 Hyundai Azera is a 3.3-liter V6 engine that's good for 293 horsepower. Acceleration from a standstill isn't very peppy, but there's sufficient power on tap once you get moving. However, the standard six-speed automatic transmission doesn't always shift as quickly as it should.

The bigger downsides to the front-wheel-drive Azera are its handling ability and ride quality. The steering is numb and vague, and while the car aims to deliver a comfortable ride, you'll easily feel many bumps in the road, especially over broken pavement.

Does the 2015 Hyundai Azera Get Good Gas Mileage?

According to the EPA, the 2015 Azera gets an estimated 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway. Those numbers are typical for a large car.
