2017 Hyundai Azera vs 2017 Nissan Maxima
When most drivers think of luxury, they probably think of many of the overpriced brands that dominate the luxury segment. The truth is, however, there are plenty of affordable options for those who want something upscale and sophisticated, and we're about to help you find one here in this comparison between the 2017 Hyundai Azera vs the 2017 Nissan Maxima.
When it comes to luxury, one of the most significant qualities of such a vehicle is interior space. After all, you're not paying up to have the same amount of legroom as a compact sedan. In this comparison, however, it appears that only one manufacturer understands that. While the Maxima's passenger volume is disappointing, the Azera truly impresses with an incredible 107 cu ft of passenger space. In terms of overall legroom in both the front and back seats, the Azera has an edge there too.
|2017 Hyundai Azera||vs||2017 Nissan Maxima|
|107 cu ft||Passenger Volume||99 cu ft|
|45.5/36.8||Legroom, inches (front/rear)||45.0/34.2|
|5 years/60,000 miles||New Vehicle Limited Warranty||36 months/36,000 miles|
|Standard||Leather seats||Available on higher trims|
Comparing the 2017 Azera vs the 2017 Maxima
Now, in all fairness, the Azera does start at a slightly higher MSRP. But, don't be fooled by a slight difference in those numbers. Divided out into individual payments each month over the course of your ownership, that small difference of less than $1,500 doesn't amount to much. This is especially true when comparing these two models, as the Azera delivers for the price, coming standard with features the Maxima doesn't (but which you might expect it to), such as leather seats, a 14-speaker sound system, heated front seats, cooled front seats and much more.
Plus, when considering cost, you have to take into account what you might have to pay for repairs, which means digging into the warranty. We realize the warranty isn't exactly the most exciting thing about any model, but we do think America's Best Warranty is worth getting at least a little happy about. Not only does Hyundai offer a 5-year or 60,000-mile New Vehicle Limited Warranty with the Azera, far better than what's found with the Maxima, but it also has an incredible 10-year/100,000-mile Powertrain Warranty.
We didn't even get a chance to discuss other exciting aspects of the Azera, such as the Hands-Free Smart Trunk (class-exclusive) or the standard navigation system. But, to see all that, you can simply schedule a test drive at Coastal Hyundai. Either way, it's pretty clear when comparing the 2017 Azera vs the 2017 Nissan Maxima that the Azera truly deserves to go up against the industry's top luxury options.
