Under the Hood
Every 2014 Azera is equipped with a 293-horsepower, 3.3-liter V-6 engine and a 6-speed automatic transmission that delivers the power to the front wheels. The transmission includes a Shiftronic mode that allows the driver to take manual control of the gear changes, as well as an Active Eco system designed to help conserve fuel economy.
According to the EPA, the 2014 Azera returns 19 mpg in the city and 29 mpg on the highway, for a combined rating of 23 mpg.
Safety Ratings and Technology
The 2014 Hyundai Azera has not been assessed in crash testing by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), the 2014 Hyundai Azera receives highest-possible \"Good\" ratings in four out of five evaluations--moderate overlap front, side, roof strength, and head restraints and seats. The IIHS has not performed a small overlap frontal-impact test on this model.
Standard safety equipment includes a reversing camera and a Blue Link telematics system that equips the Azera with three free years of access to SOS Emergency Call and Automatic Collision Notification services. Blue Link also includes several features designed to provide the car's owner with alerts when the Azera passes specific geographic boundaries, when it exceeds specific velocities, and when it remains out past a specific curfew. Additionally, Blue Link can help locate, slow, and immobilize the Azera if it is stolen.
Beyond these features, the Azera Limited comes standard with a navigation system and a premium audio system, each operated using an 8-in. color touch-screen display, and the Limited's Premium package includes rear park-assist sensors.
