The luxurious Hyundai Azera sedan

When you climb into the 2014 Hyundai Azera, you notice a lot of amenities. Its roomy interior and leather seats offer comfort, as do the steering wheel and driver’s seat that adjust every which way you can imagine. Look a little closer and you find seat warmers/coolers in the front, seat warmers in the back, and sunshades for both the back and rear windows. My kids thought it was really cool how the rear window shade lowered automatically when the car was put in reverse.

Hyundai Azera Panaromaic Sunroof

The Azera’s panoramic sun roof makes the car’s interior feel even roomier

But then you open the sunroof shade. And your whole experience in the Azera changes. Instead of driving a car, you’re driving a Jetsons-like space vehicle. The panoramic sunroof is so big that you feel like the car is all window. While my husband drove, I took a turn sitting in the back seat and the effect was even more intense. I felt like I was riding in a bubble. Check out the video for a tour of the Hyundai Azera.
