2016 Hyundai Genesis vs 2016 Hyundai Azera

It's great to have options -- it's even greater to have highly competitive options. Hyundai Motor offers three full-size sedans, the Azera, Genesis and Equus, and while each are tailored to fit their individual markets, Hyundai always packs more features than you would expect into every single model, meaning multiple models at multiple trim levels will suit your budget and your lifestyle. We're taking a closer look at the 2016 Hyundai Genesis vs 2016 Hyundai Azera to illustrate how one, the other, or both are within your reach and exceeding your expectations.

In addition to both carrying Hyundai's 100,000-mile, 10-year warranty, the Genesis and the Azera both have spacious trunks with hands-free smart capabilities, both have best-in-their-class interior volume(s), both out-perform their competitors in standard horsepower, and both carry standard navigation (often only an available perk of a large, mass market sedan).

Let's dive into the Genesis first. Hyundai's affordable full-size premium sedan comes with standard rear-wheel drive with available all-wheel drive, a serious advantage to consider over the Azera. All-wheel drive could be worth the extra cash if you live in a climate where sudden adverse weather or long winter seasons are realities. Performance-wise, the Genesis offers more options and is superior in terms of power and driving experience. With a standard V6 that makes 311 horsepower and a top-tier V8 that puts out 420 horsepower and 383 pound-feet of torque, plus an 8-speed standard shiftable automatic transmission, acceleration is responsive, smooth, and exciting.

The Azera and the Genesis are surprisingly similarly equipped, proving the Azera provides class-above technology features that will not leave even the choosiest buyers wanting. Azera's list of standard tech features includes: blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alerts, keyless ignition and entry, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather seating, power front seats and steering wheel with memory settings, heated and ventilated front seats, heated rear seats with a 60/40-split rear seatback, plus Bluetooth phone and audio connectivity, an 8-inch touchscreen with navigation and smartphone apps like Pandora and Siri, a rearview camera, Blue Link emergency and convenience services, and a 14-speaker audio system. The still-impressive 293-horsepower V6 is no slouch either, so drivers should know they won't have to sacrifice an engaging drive for affordability, safety, or technology in a family sedan.

We think both of these outstanding Hyundai sedans warrant your test drive at Carolina Hyundai. Allow us to guide you through the car-buying process, from initial test drives to signing and trade-in options. Call, click or stop by our showroom today.
