good-looking faux wood and metallic piping

The 2008 Hyundai Azera sports an anonymous appearance that nearly clones its chief rival, the Toyota Avalon. Still, it’s a great leap forward for the brand, and it’s fairly good-looking, too.

The 2008 Hyundai Azera leans “ever so slightly on the sporty side of this conservative sector,” Automedia says, with styling that is particularly striking from the back.” Edmunds concurs: “with its tasteful chrome grille and crisp body lines, this sedan looks more like an Acura than a Hyundai.” Cars.com also refers to the 2008 Hyundai Azera’s “graceful four-door lines.” Car and Driver, however, is not impressed with what it calls “a nondescript, almost generic mid-size sedan look."

TheCarConnection.com found the interior of the 2008 Hyundai Azera to be better received, with Edmunds.com commenting, "Hyundai infuses the Azera's cabin with robust doses of luxury. With good-looking faux wood and metallic piping, materials quality is simply excellent, and those who opt for the Limited will find themselves swaddled in soft, double-stitched leather." Unfortunately, the light-colored beige leather of the driver seat has been known to become worn and discolored prematurely, so Edmunds also said, "we'd suggest sticking with the black interior option, which looks classier anyway." Car and Driver finds fault inside too, with the “econocar-like gauges.”

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.
