Edmunds

On the outside, the 2009 Hyundai Azera is fairly anonymous, according to reviews read by TheCarConnection.com. It looks a lot like the Toyota Avalon—which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Car and Driver is not impressed with what it calls "a nondescript, almost generic mid-size sedan look." Cars.com, however, refers to the 2009 Hyundai Azera's "graceful four-door lines." The 2009 Hyundai Azera leans "ever so slightly on the sporty side of this conservative sector," Edmunds concurs: "with its...crisp body lines, this sedan looks more like an Acura than a Hyundai." Kelley Blue Book likes the 2009 Azera's "classy look." New for 2009 are redesigned wheels and a slightly different chrome grille.

The interior of the 2009 Hyundai Azera is also well received. Edmunds comments, "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." For 2009, Hyundai adds some new wood and metal grain trims that impart a touch of class. Car and Driver finds fault inside, with the "econocar-like gauges." One other gripe: The light-colored beige leather of the driver seat is known to become worn and discolored prematurely, so Edmunds advises "sticking with the black interior option, which looks classier anyway."

Conclusion

The 2009 Hyundai Azera has a fairly stylish interior but a nondescript exterior.

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.
