Four stars, front impact protection; five stars, front seat side impact protection; four stars, rear seat side impact protection
Good," frontal offset; "acceptable," side impact; "acceptable," rear impact
dual front airbags, antiskid system, front-seat active head restraints, and a tire pressure monitoring system
With regard to safety, the 2010 Hyundai Azera meets expectations for features, but its crash-test ratings signal that it's certainly not at the head of the class.
Front and rear side airbags, side curtain airbags, electronic stability control, front-seat active head restraints, anti-lock four-wheel disc brakes, and brake assist are included with both Azera models. The rear thorax-type bags are an unusual feature typically offered in premium vehicles.
In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tests, the Hyundai Azera was rated "good" for frontal-offset protection, though it earned lower scores of "acceptable" for side and rear tests. In federal (NHTSA) tests, the Azera received five stars for front-seat protection in side impacts and four stars for rear-seat protection, as well as four stars for frontal impact protection.
The 2010 Hyundai Azera offers all the features expected in a large luxury car, though its crash-test ratings aren't excellent.
