No. 3: 2013 Hyundai Azera
Judges described the 2013 Hyundai Azera as “sexy, exciting, and safe.” As one judge pointed out, “you get a lot of toys for the price,” including heated and cooled seats, a panoramic moonroof, and rear sunshades in every direction. The Azera also impressed with a quiet ride and a responsive feel. On the downside, the car’s exterior left something to be desired and some of the car’s interior features (like an oversized radio knob) puzzled the judges.
The Azera used in this test was priced at $37,255 and was the only sedan tested with power rear sunshade and side sunshades and one of two cars tested with heated rear seats, folder rear-seat release from the cargo area, and with extendable thigh support. With 16.3 cubic feet of cargo space, the Azera was able to fit all 10 golf bags.
