The 2012 Hyundai Azera debuts last month at the LA Auto Show. Watch the video to get a glimpse of the Hyundai Azera’s features.Hyundai released a teaser preview last month, which showed off highlights of the Azera, including the following features: HID headlights with LED accents, chrome-tipped dual exhaust, LED taillights, a 7-in touchscreen for navigation, and a panoramic sunroof. The video also highlights the fluidic sculpture design, which permeates Hyundai’s styling.

The Azera has a spacious interior with leather seating. Under the hood, it comes with a 3.3L V6 engine with 293-hp and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. It has a six speed automatic transmission and gets 20mpg in the city, 29 mpg on the highway and 23mpg combined. Standard features include 18-inch wheels and nine airbags. The Azera is expected to start at $32,000, although no official announcement has been made.

This is the Azera’s first unveiling in America. It has previously appeared around the world as the Grandeur. Apparently the designers took inspiration from flight elements when designing the front grill and headlights, which have a streamlined, wing-like look. On the inside, the Azera comes with SiriusXM satellite radio, Bluetooth and iPod connectivity.

The LA Auto Show was November 18th to November 27th, right through Thanksgiving, but held two press days November 16 and 17. When the LA Auto Show first started in 1907, it showed off 99 vehicles at Morley’s Skating Rink.
