The 2015 Hyundai Azera Makes Its North American Debut At The Miami International Auto Show

Hyundai Motor America introduced the 2015 Hyundai Azera in a North American debut at the 44th annual Miami International Auto Show today. The Azera will be showcased front and center starting November 7, 2014 where media member and public alike can catch a glimpse of Hyundai's latest installment of new thinking and new possibilities.

The new Azera now comes equipped with standard Blind Spot Detection with Rear Cross Traffic alert and Lane Change Assist, a segment-first safety feature. Other new standard features include illuminated door sill plates, a hands-free Smart Trunk opener, an eight-inch color LCD navigation display, and a new center stack design.

On the exterior, new LED fog lights have been added to the Limited model, and the standard 18-inch alloy wheels have been redesigned. The front grille, bumper fascia, and rear bumper fascia have also been restyled, improving appearance from virtually every angle. The Limited model now also receives features from the 2014 Azera Limited model Premium package as standard equipment, along with all-new safety features.

Under the hood, the sophisticated Lambda II 3.3-liter direct-injected V6 engine motivates the Azera. It produces best-in-class specific output of 88.8 horsepower per liter, while also boasting the smallest displacement V6 in its class. The engine's high-pressure direct injection system (over 2,200 psi), increases power and torque (293 HP and 255 lb-ft), while simultaneously reducing fuel consumption and emissions.

The 2015 Hyundai Azera is also equipped with the next generation Blue Link system which includes the Vehicle Safeguards Alerts In-Vehicle App. This app allows parents to coach teen drivers by monitoring their Hyundai's speed, hours of operation and movements via text message, e-mail or both. The brilliance of the in-vehicle app is now these alerts can be set and modified from inside the vehicle.

The new Azera continues to offer superior level of comfort and quietness, along with advanced standard safety technologies. It represents a state-of-the-art approach to the traditional premium sedan segment by also delivering a powerful yet efficient powertrain, modern design, and luxury features combined with Hyundai's consistently strong value proposition.
