Expert Quotes:

20 mpg city, 28 highway
EPA





The 2012 Azera has a revised, direct-injection version of Hyundai's 3.3-liter V-6, fitted to a six-speed automatic transmission, and thanks also to the Azera's improved aerodynamics this year it achieves EPA ratings of 20 mpg city, 28 highway, for a Combined figure of 23 mpg. And it has no requirement for premium fuel.

As in Hyundai's other models there's an Active Eco function that smooths out the throttle and transmission when cruising or accelerating lightly, allowing shifts to happen a little earlier and resulting in up to a seven-percent improvement in real-world fuel economy, according to the automaker.

On the other hand, Buick offers a new eAssist version of its LaCrosse, pairing a four-cylinder engine with a mild-hybrid system, to achieve a highway rating of 37 mpg. And in the upcoming, redesigned 2013 Ford Taurus, a new, more efficient turbocharged four-cylinder engine will top 30 mpg on the highway.

NOTE: The 2012 Azera is one of a set of vehicles found to have overstated fuel-economy numbers. Hyundai initially submitted figures of 20/29 mpg to the EPA, but the agency found the actual tested fuel economy to be 20/28 mpg. Owners can register with Hyundai to receive reimbursement for the gas consumed above and beyond expected levels; more details are found at HyundaiMPGInfo.com.

Conclusion

The 2012 Hyundai Azera gets somewhat better gas mileage than most other large V-6 sedans.

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.
