2012 Hyundai Azera

2012-hyundai-azera Video Preview : 2012 Hyundai AzeraTest Drive & Car Review Hyundai is on a new-product war path. The company’s plan to unveil seven new or significantly redesigned vehicles in just 24 months has officially come to fruition with the introduction of the 2012 Azera. This model is the last in that ambitious push, and as such, it wears plenty of design elements borrowed from those that came before it. It would be difficult to miss the similarities between the sweeping chrome grille and wrapped headlights of the Azera and those found on company’s Sonata.

The design is somewhat more toned down in the new application, and the front fascia actually manages to look more menacing than melted. Details like LED trim work in the headlights and prominent fog lamps also help give the 2012 Azera additional presence up front. Move to the vehicle’s side, and it’s clear the sedan’s



2013 Hyundai Genesis Coupe

2013-Hyundai-Genesis-Coupe It’s difficult to miss the changes to the nose of the Genesis Coupe. Designers slathered elements of the familial Fluidic Design language all over the front valance, complete with a hexagonal grille, aggressive HID headlamps with available LED daytime running lights, new fog lights and even a new hood with faux air inlets.

We know the styling isn’t going to garner many wolf whistles in traffic, but from where we sit, this design is a much-needed departure from the somewhat generic lines of the first-generation model.



Hyundai Veloster 2012

Hyundai-Veloster-2012 We’re taught never to judge a book by its cover, but you can understand a lot about the Veloster just from its appearance: quirky, cool and not like anything else you’ll get in the segment. Of course, all Veloster design dissections start with that trick third door – a neatly integrated, front-hinged rear door on the passenger side. Those with a trained eye will notice it straight away, but to my friends who had never heard of the Veloster, showing off that third door was always met with reactions of, “Woah, cool.” Styling aside, the functional benefits are truly welcomed during grocery runs and when you need to throw an extra person or two in the back seats.
