A number of individual options can be selected to customize the Azera, including 19-inch alloy rims, HID headlights, ventilated seats, power tilt-and-telescoping steering, an upgraded Infinity stereo system and rear sunshades.

Many of these optional features are also found bundled together in the Technology package, which also includes parking assistance, a panoramic sunroof and a memory feature for the driver's seat.
