Hyundai is aggressively sprucing up its vehicle portfolio for various markets for 2018 and 2019. The South Korean carmaker is introducing new models and existing popular ones are also getting revamped, one of them is 2019 Hyundai Azera. The Azera model was Hyundai’s big effort in wooing the family sedan buyers. It was a direct competitor to popular contenders like Chevy Impala and Toyota Avalon.

With a focus on comfort and features, it was launched to bridge the gap between mainstream and lavish family sedans. While Toyota will not sell it in the US market anymore, for some other countries the 2019 Azera is still being launched. In some markets is also sold as Hyundai Grandeur.

2019 Hyundai Azera Price and Availability

The expected base trim price of 2019 Hyundai Azera is $35.000. However, if you decide to buy Azera Limited you need to pay around $40,200. It is going to reach the showrooms sometime in 2018.

Summing it up

The 2019 Azera from Hyundai is a decent family sedan but it does not offer anything outstanding. The design is pleasant and the cabin is beautiful with enough space. However, the rivals offer more customization choices in the cabin. The lack of an AWD also looks odd though the powertrain is a good performer overall. You do get more compelling choices in this class. For its price, the sedan still offers good value for money.
