New York Auto Show: Hyundai Azera

Hyundai unveiled its newest top-end sedan, the Azera ("the era of A to Z" — For this they pay a marketing department?). It replaces the XG350, which had been aging badly of late. The new sedan gives Hyundai a proper entry in the "jellybean-shaped, leather-seated, V6-powered sedan" segment, in which 3,870 models currently exist. Still, a new 3.8-liter V6 pushing out 265 horsepower will likely make short work of Buick's LaCrosse, which it will likely undercut in the marketplace.
