Good" in frontal offset crashes
The safety standards of modern cars have improved greatly since the first Hyundai appeared on U.S. shores more than 20 years ago, and that is duly reflected in the 2008 Hyundai Azera.
TheCarConnection.com finds the 2008 Hyundai Azera received five stars from the NHTSA for front-seat protection in side impacts and four stars for rear-seat protection, as well as four stars for frontal impact protection.
In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests, the 2008 Hyundai Azera "earned a top score of 'Good' for its protection of passengers in frontal offset crashes, and a score of 'Acceptable' (the second-highest rating) in side-impact testing," according to Edmunds.
Hyundai equips every Azera with dual front airbags, front and rear side airbags, curtain side airbags, anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes, brake assist, antiskid system, front-seat active head restraints, and a tire pressure monitoring system, reports ConsumerGuide.
The 2008 Hyundai Azera comes equipped with the complement of safety equipment one would expect from a modern, semi-luxury sedan.
