No Azera will be sold in the USA in 2018

I sent Hyundai USA a letter a few weeks ago and received a response from headquarters. In short Hyundai said the Azera sales are very bad in the USA not what they expected. Hyundai has many new products in the pipeline and Azera will only be sold overseas.


So that about sums it up. The Azera is dead here parts will be available for 10 years. Kind of sad to see the Azera fade away in the US market.

Shame, the Azera was a wonderful car. I'm still surprised they couldn't manage to place it at the top of the Hyundai brand or as the entry level in the Genesis line. I almost bought my wife one a couple years back.

Why would they go back to V6? With more economical 4-cyl + turbo options, most all auto mfg are moving to smaller engines.

See, Flash, being the fastest isnt always the best if you are wrong.

Hyundai announced this at the end of June. The sales for Azera were way down and the decision was made to split the line between Hyundai and Genesis Hyundai and then the upscale cars Genesis.

The upcoming G 70 Genesis (sedan 4 cyl 2.0 turbo or 3.3 turbo V6) will be press released September 15 and is supposed to start in the low to mid thirty thousand (about same price of Azera). Genesis will also be releasing a G 60 coupe.

So the Hyundai line top car will be a Sonata Limited or Limited 2.0 t at low 30,000s and then into Genesis Line for sedan G70 mid 30,000 -G 80 low - mid 40,000 -G90 68,000 +

G70 is the sister product of the Kia Stinger. Spy shots are out there now.

From the letter I received back from Hyundai they said that they have a great marketing team and did advertise the Azera. I rarely seen an Azera advertisement. When Hyundai came out with the new design in 2013 yes they did advertise the car in super bowl ads and on the big three networks but only for a short time. Dealers would only have three or four Azeras in the lots.


Moving off the topic the Stinger which is a sister product of the G70 hopefully is made better than Kia model as it did not get high marks for quality parts inside the cabin. Mostly cheap plastic.

That would be a rocket ship! They could do a Sonata Sport with beefy suspension, Brembo brakes, etc, and give it a manual!!!
