FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Nov. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai Motor America announced pricing today for the flagship 2006 Hyundai Azera. With segment-leading standard safety technologies including Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and eight airbags, premium convenience features, an all-new 3.8-liter 263 horsepower V6 that delivers 28 miles per gallon on the highway and more interior space than the Mercedes S-Class and BMW 760i, the Azera may be the most car for the money ever.


2006 Hyundai Azera Pricing:
- Azera SE - $24,995 (freight included)*
- Azera Limited - $27,495 (freight included)*
- Azera Limited with Ultimate Package - $29,995 (freight included)*


"The all-new Azera takes luxury appointments and personal comfort and makes them genuinely affordable," says Robert Cosmai, president and CEO of Hyundai Motor America. "Azera is designed to take on Toyota Avalon, Nissan Maxima, and other large premium sedans with an unbeatable combination of power, interior roominess, upscale features, and segment-leading standard safety technologies, like eight airbags and Electronic Stability Control, all for under $25,000."

The Azera's 3.8-liter engine is the largest in its competitive set, offering more standard horsepower than Ford Five Hundred and the Buick LaCrosse, and more torque than the Toyota Avalon. The Azera is faster in the sprint to 60 mph than the BMW 530i and Mercedes-Benz S430. Azera also has more standard safety features than Toyota Avalon or Nissan Maxima -- including 8 standard airbags and standard Electronic Stability Control.

I think I'd spend the extra money and get an Avalon or Lucerne if I was in the market for the Azera.

No ne pays MSRP for a Hyundai ,yet. The v6 Sonata is going for 15K+, this car will be under 20K.

Lucerne. Avalon. Montego. Impala. Anything other than this. That interior design isn't worth $20K let alone $30K.

Good pricing, slightly less than the outgoing XG350. Considering that Hyundais are sold for thousands of dollars less than sticker, it will be a solid buy. The warranty helps make it a compelling buy.
