2012 Hyundai Azera First Drive Review: Pricing and Trim Levels
Assembled in South Korea, the 2012 Hyundai Azera is only offered in a single trim with a starting price set at $32,000. Not only is this new starting price about $6,500 more than the outgoing Azera, it also used to be the starting point of the Hyundai Genesis Sedan, but considering how much standard equipment and luxury the 2012 Azera delivers, this should only help the car fit in into place even better. Fitting in with the mono-spec base model, the 2012 Hyundai Azera comes with a simply organized option list that is crammed into a single package. Checking that option package gave our car an as-tested price $36,875, and while this fully loaded price puts the 2012 Hyundai Azera on par with a base Lexus ES 350, a true apples-to-apples comparison shows about a $5,000 savings compared to a comparably equipped ES.
