605-watt, 12-speaker Infinity stereo…cranked out rich, high-fidelity audio
For the money, the 2011 Hyundai Azera outclasses its competition with more standard equipment.
Pitted against the likes of the Taurus and Avalon, the Azera comes in two trim levels. The base GLS brings with it the smaller-displacement V-6 along with standard power windows, locks, and heated mirrors; a tilt/telescoping steering wheel; keyless entry; cruise control; AM/FM/CD/XM satellite radio with a USB port and an auxiliary jack; dual-zone climate control; a garage door opener; and steering-wheel audio controls.
A Premium package offered with the GLS adds on leather seating; heated front seats; leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob; and a power glass sunroof.
The 2011 Azera Limited takes all the GLS equipment, swaps out the drivetrain for the larger-displacement, 3.8-liter V-6, and moves up to 17-inch wheels. Also standard on the Limited are the GLS' Premium package content; a six-CD in-dash changer with Infinity speakers; a power rear sunshade; woodgrain trim for the steering wheel; power adjustment for the steering wheel; and more metallic trim inside and out.
The Azera Limited has an option for a navigation system made by LG. It's bundled with a 605-watt audio system with Infinity speakers--but to get it, you'll lose the USB port, auxiliary jack and the in-dash CD changer, an odd circumstance that leads us to recommend an inexpensive portable GPS instead. Bluetooth is available, but it's a port-installed option.
The 2011 Hyundai Azera only leaves a few features on the options list, especially in Limited trim; Bluetooth and GPS installations have drawbacks.
