Consumer Guide



In a class where five-star safety is nearly universal, the 2011 Hyundai Azera falls shy of the best scores.

For the 2011 model year, both the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) have changed the criteria they use to rate crash protection. For that reason, the NHTSA hasn't published scores for this year's Azera, and since it's being replaced in 2012, it's not likely to update its star ratings on the current car.

The IIHS, meanwhile, says the Azera offers "good" protection in frontal impacts. Side impact protection is deemed "acceptable."

The Azera has plenty of safety technology built in. Standard equipment includes dual front, side and curtain airbags; anti-lock brakes, traction and stability control; and active front headrests. Rear side airbags are also fitted, and an unusual feature for the cost-conscious sedan class.

The Azera doesn't have a rearview camera, parking sensors, blind-spot detectors, or similar safety equipment becoming more common in the segment.

Conclusion

The 2011 Hyundai Azera offers all the features expected in a large luxury car, though its crash-test ratings aren't excellent.

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.
