For 2008, the Azera represents the highest sedan on the Hyundai totem pole. The full-size 2008 Hyundai Azera can be had in two trims. The GLS features a 3.3-liter 234 hp V-6 providing 18/26 city/hwy mpg. The Limited trim level provides an upgrade to 3.8-liters, 24-valves, and 263 hp with 17/26 mpg city/hwy. Azera is equipped with a 5-speed automatic transmission, generous comfort, safety, and technology options. Combined with a high quality interior that looks and feels the part, excellent 10 year 100,000 mile powertrain warranty and a starting price thousands less than the competition, the Azera is more car than meets the eye.Read more Read less
For 2008, the luxurious Hyundai Azera gets a number of upgrades and a revised lineup of standard and available features. Last year's mid-grade SE has been dropped from the lineup and the Azera is now only available in GLS and Limited trims. The base GLS now has standard 17-inch alloy wheels and body-color rocker panels, while the Limited model now has side-mirror turn signals, a power sunroof, and a ten-speaker Infinity audio system. An LG navigation system is newly available on the Limited. Across the line, the suspension has been retuned for improved ride and handling.
Affordable price; smooth ride; spacious interior and trunk; extensive warranty.
The 2008 Azera ranks as Hyundai's most expensive sedan. But it's a relative bargain, with luxury features that rival those in vehicles costing significantly more, such as the Nissan Maxima and Toyota Avalon. With an especially roomy back interior--more interior space than the Avalon, Mercedes-Benz E-Class, or BMW 7-Series, according to Hyundai--and a smooth ride, it's an ideal vehicle for family duty or road trips.
