The price of the redesigned 2012 Hyundai Azera will start at $32,875, including an $875 delivery fee, when the sedan goes on sale in April, Hyundai Motor America said today. That's $6,605 more than the base price of the 2011 Azera.
The second-generation Azera will have a 293-hp, 3.3-liter gasoline direct-injection V-6 engine paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, Hyundai said.
Standard features will include a navigation system with touch-screen display, rearview backup camera, push-button start, leather-covered steering wheel and shift knob, heated front and rear seats and 18-inch alloy wheels, Hyundai said.
The 2012 Azera also will offer an optional technology package for $4,000 that includes features such as 19-inch alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof, power rear sunshade and ventilated front seats.
The Azera competes in the large-sedan segment, which also includes the Toyota Avalon, Ford Taurus, Buick LaCrosse and Nissan Maxima.
Dave Zuchowski, executive vice president of sales for Hyundai Motor America, told Automotive News in November that the company expects Azera sales to hit 15,000 in 2012.
In 2011, Hyundai sold 1,524 Azeras in the United States, down 50 percent from 2010.
