2015 Hyundai Azera Facelift Gets Detailed

Hyundai has released new pictures and details about the 2015 Azera following its debut at the Miami International Auto Show.

On the styling front, the facelifted model receives a new front bumper, a revised grille and LED fog lights (on Limited variants). Moving further back, there's a modified rear bumper and restyled 18-inch alloy wheels.

The cabin largely carries over but there's revised switchgear, illuminated sill plates and an upgraded infotainment system with an 8-inch display. The latter gains an assortment of new features including Pandora capability, a split-screen display and an enhanced Google Point-of-Interest search function - among other things.

The model also comes nicely equipped with a host of standard equipment including leather upholstery, a dual-zone automatic climate control system and heated front / rear seats. There's also a next-generation Blue Link telematics system.

Speaking of technology, the 2015 Azera gains a standard Blind Spot Detection system with Rear Cross Traffic alert and Lane Change Assist. Limited variants go one step further as they have Automatic High Beam Assist, a Lane Departure Warning system and a Forward Collision Warning system.

Motivation is provided by a 3.3-liter V6 engine that develops 293 bhp (218 kW) and 255 lb-ft (345 Nm) of torque. It is connected to a six-speed automatic transmission which should enable the model to return 19 mpg city / 29 mpg highway / 23 mpg combined.
