Expert Quotes:

'Good,' frontal, side, and rear impact; 'good,' roof strength; Top Safety Pick
IIHS

NHTSA




The all-new Azera hasn't yet been tested for safety, but it should fare better than last year's model, which hadn't earned top marks all around. The 2012 model borrows some building blocks from the acclaimed Sonata mid-size sedan, but since it's larger and substantially different, there's no way to extend the Sonata's excellent ratings yet either.

In new IIHS tests, the 2012 Azera completely swept the ratings matrix, with top 'good' scores in all the subcategories of frontal and side-impact testing. Withstanding 4.76 times its weight, the Azera also earned a 'good' rating. In any case, that was a substantial improvement over the previous (2011) Azera, which had earned 'acceptable' ratings for rear and side impact.

The Azera's standard safety kit is impressive; it comes with nine standard airbags—including a driver's knee airbag and separate rear side-impact bags—plus electronic stability control, anti-lock brakes, and an impact-reducing front-seat design. Additionally, a rearview camera system is standard on all models.

Conclusion

The 2012 Hyundai Azera comes with an excellent set of safety features—including a standard rear camera system.

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.
