In terms of interior comfort and cargo space, the 2011 Hyundai Azera isn't without flaws. It is quite spacious, though, even if its interior materials are a little less than luxurious, in places.

The Azera is a large sedan, with truly vast cabin room. There are 44 inches of front-seat legroom and more than 38 inches of rear-seat legroom, numbers rivaling some long-wheelbase luxury sedans from Germany. The space gives the Azera a leg up on comfort, but we think it could use better seats. The driver sits very high--it's almost like being in the old Ford Five Hundred, the predecessor to today's Taurus. The high seating position helps with visibility, but it means some taller drivers will find less headroom, especially under the available sunroof. The power front seats and power-adjustable pedals help matters, and the seats at least have good bolstering for the class.

The back seat has palatial room, enough for adults to cross leg over knee, barely grazing the front seatbacks. The rear bench is comfortable, too, with its own fold-down armrest and its molded-in cupholders. The rear seats fold down along a 60/40 split, opening up the Azera's cabin to packages too big to fit inside its 16.6-cubic-foot trunk. While that's a sizable space, it's almost 20 percent smaller than the huge bin built on the back of the current Ford Taurus.

Hyundai does a good job with interior materials in the Azera. They're reasonably upscale, with good matte and gloss finishes, if not quite the state of the art. The Azera's better at maintaining peace and quiet, with minimal road noise and only a slight growl from the V-6 at full throttle.


Conclusion

If it's interior space you need, the 2011 Hyundai Azera carves out its size-large place alongside the Avalon and Taurus.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
