2016 Hyundai Azera Overview

Is the 2016 Hyundai Azera a Good Used Car?

Yes, the 2016 Hyundai Azera is a good used car. It has an array of standard features, decent gas mileage, and – like many sedans – solid crash test and reliability ratings.

Used 2016 Hyundai Azera Performance and Interior

The Hyundai Azera features a 3.3-liter V6 engine that puts out 293 horsepower. It's mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Like most other cars in this class, there's no manual transmission offered. There's plenty of power for city and highway driving. The front-wheel-drive Azera has mediocre handling, and it's less agile than rivals. The ride is fine over smooth pavement, but it gets rough over uneven roads. The Azera gets 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway, which is average fuel economy for a large car.

The Hyundai Azera's cabin looks great and features mostly high-quality materials. It seats five and has two full sets of LATCH car-seat connectors. The front seats are roomy and supportive. The rear seats have plenty of legroom, but headroom might be tight for taller passengers.

The Azera has numerous standard features, including a 14-speaker Infinity audio system, navigation, Bluetooth, a USB port, satellite radio, and an 8-inch touch screen. A panoramic sunroof is available. The infotainment system has user-friendly redundant physical buttons, meaning you won't have to use the touch screen all the time.

Should I Consider Another Used Azera?

The 2016 Hyundai Azera’s generation began with the 2012 model year and includes the 2017 model. The 2016 and 2015 Azera are basically the same, so you can save some money by going with the older Hyundai model.

Which Used Hyundai Azera Is Right for Me?

There are two Hyundai Azera trim levels: base and Limited. The base trim has plenty of features, but the Hyundai Azera Limited offers many driver assistance features. The Limited is worth the extra money for safety-conscious buyers.

A certified pre-owned Azera may suit you best. Certified pre-owned Hyundai vehicles receive the balance of the original new-car 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Hyundai CPO vehicles must pass a 150-point inspection. Additional benefits like towing and roadside assistance may be available, so read Hyundai’s warranty page carefully.

2016 Hyundai Azera and Other Cars to Consider

Which Is Better: 2016 Hyundai Azera or 2016 Toyota Avalon?

With its quiet cabin, spacious rear seats, and smooth ride, the Toyota Avalon's primary strength is comfort. However, it also delivers solid performance thanks to its poised handling and strong acceleration. The Avalon has a high reliability rating, but it generally costs more than the Azera. Even so, most buyers will want the Avalon over the Hyundai.

Which Is Better: 2016 Hyundai Azera or 2016 Chevrolet Impala?

The Chevrolet Impala has a large trunk and a posh interior with plenty of space in the front and back. Unlike its Hyundai rival, the Impala rides smoothly over all surfaces and offers composed handling. The Impala is one of the top choices among large cars, and it won our 2016 Best Large Car for the Money and Best Large Car for Families awards. The Impala costs less than the Azera on average. Overall, this Chevrolet sedan has more to offer than the Hyundai.
