The fresh Hyundai Azera—Look, although Don’t Touch
We hate to lead off the week with which disheartening news, although Hyundai will not sell the next-generation Azera you see above inside the United States. Hyundai’s Korean headquarters has just released three photos of the latest Azera, along with which’s possible Hyundai may have injected some excitement into which large sedan, although we’ll never know.
The news hit us as if Hershey’s had announced which was discontinuing its Symphony lineup of chocolate bars—a semi-premium offshoot through a non-premium brand which hardly anyone takes off the shelf. Back inside the early 2000s, U.S. Azera sales did amount to something—cresting above 26,000 in 2006. although which generic Toyota Avalon competitor only racked up 5500 sales last year.
Weirdly enough, the rear of the fresh Azera looks like a Dodge Charger along with the front like a slightly underdressed Genesis G80. Perhaps which’s why, with the Genesis brand at which point doing a go as a separate, Lexus-aping entity, there’s no room anymore for the Azera.
although all may not be lost, Azera lovers. Hyundai’s U.S. division says which: “Considering the importance of Hyundai Motor’s flagship type in overseas markets, we are currently reviewing the possibility of introducing a U.S.-specific type which reflects the needs of customers in North America. Further information will be announced in due course.”
We’d take ours with almonds along with toffee. Doesn’t everyone?
