The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
8.0
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 Toyota Avalon is designed for a cushy, comfortable ride and impressive interior space above all else.
