REFINED POWERTRAIN
A 3.3-liter, direct-injected V6 engine pumps like a healthy, athletic heart in the Azera. The engine uses a high-pressure direct-injection system, spraying fuel at more than 2200 psi, and a compression ratio of 11.5:1. Constructed from aluminum, the power-plant has four valves-per-cylinder, piston cooling jets, a roller timing chain, Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT), and a variable length intake manifold. This marriage of advanced technology allows horsepower to peak at an impressive 293 at 6,400 rpm and 255 pound-feet of torque at 5,200 rpm, yet maintain a broad power curve for strong mid-range grunt. Despite lofty outputs, fuel is sipped not gulped as the Azera achieves 20 city, 28 highway, 23 combined miles-per-gallon (19/28/22 for Limited model).

The engine mates wîth a Hyundai developed six-speed automatic transmission wîth SHIFTRONIC® manual control. This smooth shifting box uses gear ratios ideally suited to manage engine torque delivery characteristics for both swift acceleration and miserly fuel consumption. The Azera powertrain also has an Active Eco mode, which modifies engine and transmission control for improved real world fuel economy.

DEFT DYNAMICS

A fully independent suspension keeps the Azera on track. MacPherson struts, coil springs, and a 24mm front stabilizer-bar place the front wheels, multi-links do the job in back. Advanced Sachs shock absorbers maintain precise control of the wheels. Called Amplitude Selective Dampers (ASD), even the smallest damper motions are kept under control.
