What are the updates and latest features of the 2015 Hyundai Azera that was unveiled at the 2014 Miami Auto Show? Where does the Azera sit among Hyundai’s premium sedan offerings? TFLcar has the information you are looking for from the show floor.
The sleek Azera gets only minor exterior tweaks for 2015. This includes new LED lights up front and a selection of new wheel designs. The interior is the same with the exception of the clever next generation Blue Link 3.0 infotainment system.
The latest version of Hyundai Blue Link uses a built-in cellular modem to support a variety of remote monitoring and communication features. For example, you can send a destination address to your Azera from your cell phone before you get to your car. You can start or lock/unlock your car remotely. There are also monitoring features: for car’s maintenance, speed alert, curfew alert, and much more. The great part is that Hyundai plans to continue to add Blue Link functionality over the coming months and years, so you can upgrade your system or load new applications down the road.
Hyundai is very proud of its 3.3L GDI V6 engine that continues to provide the 293 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque from a relatively small displacement engine. The 2014 model is EPA rated at 19 MPG city and 29 MPG highway, so it won’t kill you at the pump either. The 2014 model starts at $31,000, but the pricing for the 2015 is not yet released.
The 2015 Azera will go on sale in December, so expect the pricing and economy ratings to be available within the month.
