The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2009 Hyundai Azera is somewhat limited in its mission, but it does it well. If interior space and a cushy ride are priorities, the Azera should be on your shortlist. The 2008 Mercury Sable has great interior room and trunk space, comprehensive safety gear, and large instrumentation, but falls behind the Honda Accord in driving excitement.
