2017 Hyundai Azera vs. 2017 Toyota Avalon

When shopping for a full-sized sedan, most car enthusiasts often hope to end up with a vehicle that has a lot to offer including luxuriousness and dependability. The 2017 Hyundai Azera and the 2017 Toyota Avalon seem to be ideal for this. However, meticulously comparing the two easily shows that the Hyundai is far ahead of the Toyota Avalon in terms of all these factors, and would be the wiser choice. Some of the reasons proving this are discussed below.

Design & Style

The Hyundai Azera has more external styling cues compared to the Avalon, but not too much to make it look gaudy. The Avalon, on the other hand, seems plain compared to the Hyundai. Both vehicles’ interiors’ tell the same story. The Hyundai Azera has a well-designed and spacious interior with ergonomic controls, including a central command touch screen that is vivid enough for use even in direct sunlight. It’s also very easy to use. The buttons and controls in the Hyundai Azera are intuitively placed, and the whole package feels neat and luxurious. In addition to having more interior space, the Hyundai also has more cargo space compared to the Toyota.

Technology & Safety

As you would expect from vehicles manufactured in 2017, there are many cutting edge technologies in both vehicles. Some of the headline features in the Toyota Avalon include a rearview camera, but does not have guide lines to assist when backing up. Basic cruise control and 2-way climate control are also part of the package.

The base Hyundai Avalon has a lot more to offer including lane keep assist, traction control, stability control, smart cruise control and a wide angle rearview with guide lines for easier parking. Other comfort and convenience amenities include a sunroof, air conditioning, power windows and door locks and power driver and passenger seats. Notable safety features include multiple airbags for all passengers in the vehicle, pre-tensioners, antilock braking systems and a collision mitigation system.


The Toyota Avalon ships with a hybrid engine with 4 cylinders which produces 200 horsepower, and is mated to a contiously variable transmission system.

The Hyundai, on the other hand, has a 3.3-liter 6-cylinder engine producing 293 horsepower. This is mated to a 6-speed automatic transmission system, and several other engine variants are available. The base Hyundai Azera develops an impressive 255 lb-ft of torque at 5,200rpm. Despite not being a hybrid, the Hyundai still has low emission levels courtesy of advanced engineering.

The Bottom Line

If you have to choose between the Hyundai Azera and the Toyota Avalon, you would be much better off with the Hyundai. It’s simply better looking, more luxurious, faster and more fun to drive compared to the Toyota.
