In The Garage: The Next Generation Hyundai Azera

After separating the Genesis brand from Hyundai, the Azera becomes the brand's new flagship vehicle. And that it is. The exterior silhouette of the next generation Azera looks more like the Infiniti Q70, the brand's flagship than a Hyundai. Unlike the conservatively styled midsize Sonata, the Azera adds a splash of pizzazz. Look for the vehicle to join the line up next year as it competes against such vehicles as the hot-selling Nissan Maxima, the upcoming Kia Cadenza and the Chrysler 300.

At this point, we're not sure if this will be a 2017 or 2018 model. We expect this vehicle will make its debut on the U.S. auto show circuit next year.
