Few would disagree that the 2010 Hyundai Azera is conservatively styled and a bit anonymous, but it is what it is and most reviewers recognize that the Azera isn't going for style mavens with finicky tastes. If anything, several reviewers mention its resemblance to the Toyota Avalon.
Cars.com, however, seems to take a liking to the Azera's "graceful four-door lines," while Edmunds says that the Azera leans "ever so slightly on the sporty side of this conservative sector." The Edmunds reviewer adds that "with its...crisp body lines, this sedan looks more like an Acura than a Hyundai." Kelley Blue Book appreciates the 2009 Azera's "classy look." Car and Driver hints at the Azera's downside, its "nondescript, almost generic mid-size sedan look."
Overall, reviewers appreciate the interior of the 2010 Hyundai Azera. For 2009, Hyundai spruced up the interior by upgrading trims with some new wood and metal grain materials. According to Edmunds, "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." 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 discolor prematurely, so Edmunds advises "sticking with the black interior option, which looks classier anyway."
The 2010 Hyundai Azera is stylistically conservative through and through, but its interior is more visually appealing than its exterior.
