Hyundai Azera has been eliminated following the rise of Genesis

Hyundai Azera sedans

Bad news for fans of full-size Korean four-door sedans, South Korean automaker is formally axing the Hyundai Azera. For those unknown about this model, the Azera was a bit like a Korean Toyota Avalon. Larger and more car than a Sonata, not as directly luxurious as the Genesis cars, and priced accordingly.

In the Azera’s formal obituary, Hyundai stated its demise was a result of the Sonata’s recent radiance and the growth of the Genesis luxury brand. As those 2 offerings at the same time converged deeper into the Azera’s place, its life in the company’s lineup had lived its life. That’s the formal explanation. We think the genuine factor behind the elimination of the Azera is that it just wasn’t selling that well. According to a report, just 4,942 Azeras were sold in the United States in 2016.

Powered by a 293-hp, 3.3-liter V-6, a Azera off the showroom floor sports a price tag of $34,100. Although, we think one might score some pretty deep discounts on a new or used example of this recently dead model.

And we must also note that there’s still the Kia Cadenza.
