It seems that the 2019 Hyundai Azera will soon be launched and not a moment too soon given what its competition has been dishing out in the last few months. What we can confirm and let us state right off the bat, that preparing this review was harder than usual since the information was hard to come by but we managed to pull it off. And if the rumours are anything to go by, it seems that Azera will be going in for a major redesign which is welcome news to our ears. So let’s take a closer look at this car, shall we?
2019 Hyundai Azera Overview:
With 2019 Hyundai Azera all set to get a major redesign this year, we can hardly wait until the car rolls out and we can test it personally. But FWIW, the news is all good so far and from what we can make out, Azera still retains its unique shape but with a tuned up exterior, but more on that later. We expect the drive train to feature some changes and hope that this new model comes with new trim styles as well, but that remains to be seen.
Exterior, under the hood:
The 2019 Hyundai Azera is certainly generating a lot of buzzes and given that it is expected for this model to go for a revamp of sorts, that’s only natural. The new model comes with a retuned front fascia and rear fascia along with enhanced grille with chrome accents.
It also comes with restyled LED headlights with cornering and Xeon fog lamps for some of the top trims. It seems that this model will come out with the same trims as last year and that was a tad disappointing for we did expect a new trim may be introduced this time around.
But the sharper corners have been rounded off and with better contouring on the side panels and a sloping roof, the model sports a better aerodynamic design than the current outgoing model. It is certainly easy on the eye and the rear end comes with re-styled tail lights which complete its exterior revamp. Incidentally, the new model comes with front-wheel drive and an optional all-wheel drive.
It also comes with a cool two-tone exterior colour scheme. The wheelbase remains more or less the same but some of the trims sport on larger tires which should provide you with better traction on the road. Overall the appearance is good as far as the exterior of the new model is concerned.
The 2019 Hyundai Azera comes with the mildly revamped interior; it comes with cloth upholstery and plushy leather seats on the top trims. It also comes with power steering along with adaptive cruising, a premium audio system along with enough head and leg room. As the car retains more or less the same specs as before except for a slight increase in storage space,
you can expect the interior of the new model to be comfortable and roomy. It also comes with 8.4-inch touch screen infotainment panel that’s compatible with apple car play and android auto along with advanced safety tech, which makes this model all the more interesting.
Engine, Release Date, and Price
The 2019 Hyundai Azera comes with 3.5 V6 engine that can crank up to 286 hp and over 300 lb-ft of torque. This car is powerful and given how it looks, that’s to be expected. The new car is set to be launched by early 2019 and the price for the base trim is expected to range between $32000 and $36000.
