2012 Hyundai Azera Named "Top Safety Pick" by IIHS

2012 Hyundai Azera Named "Top Safety Pick" by IIHS

By Jeff Youngs, May 18, 2012
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) yesterday announced that the redesigned 2012 Hyundai Azera is a "Top Safety Pick" for its ability to protect occupants in a collision. In crash tests conducted by the IIHS, the Azera received "Good" ratings--the highest possible--for frontal-offset and side-impact protection; roof crush strength;  and rear-impact protection, a test designed to assess how well a vehicle prevents whiplash injury.

The 2012 Azera is a full- family sedan that slots between the Sonata mid sedan and the Genesis entry-luxury sedan in Hyundai's lineup. All new for 2012, the Azera is offered in a single trim level for $32,875, including the destination charge.

Nine air bags are standard on the Azera, including side-impact air bags in the rear seat and a driver knee air bag. Other standard safety features on the 2012 Azera include traction and stability control, 4-wheel-disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist, front seats designed to reduce impact force in a rear collision, and a reversing camera. Rear parking-assist sensors are optional.
