2017 Hyundai Azera vs 2017 Toyota Avalon
The full-size sedan market may not be the largest of all automotive segments, but that doesn't necessarily mean it is any easier to find the right vehicle for your driving needs. There's nothing wrong with getting a little help comparing specs and features across brands and models, so we're here to help you out with that today by comparing the 2017 Hyundai Azera vs 2017 Toyota Avalon. These are two sedans that you probably already have near the top of your list of must-test drive vehicles, so allow us to break down some of the key details.
One of the key benefits of opting for a full-size sedan rather than a midsize sedan or even a crossover is that they generally come equipped with powerful engines. The Azera and Avalon are no different, but it's clear that the Azera has an edge when it comes to raw power. Though the 2017 Avalon may come close to matching the Azera's torque output, Hyundai's full-size sedan pumps out a whopping 293 horsepower to blow the Avalon away.

Differences Between the 2017 Azera and 2017 Avalon
It may be important to note that the Azera is offered in only two trim levels, rather than the Avalon's four. Though this could be seen as an advantage for the Avalon if the Azera wasn't well-equipped, the truth is that the Azera is, in fact, generously equipped with standard features that do not come standard on the Avalon. Such features include a voice activated navigation system, an amplifier for the sound system, cooled front seats, an in-vehicle assistance service, daytime running lights, Blind Spot Monitoring, stolen vehicle tracking and a whole lot more. We also can't forget to mention the segment-exclusive Hands-Free Smart Trunk you'll find on the Azera, which automatically opens the trunk when the Proximity Key is detected within three feet behind the vehicle for more than three seconds.
One more key quality of a fantastic full-size sedan is interior spaciousness, and when it comes to overall passenger volume, the Azera takes top honors in this comparison. That would usually indicate less trunk space, but in this case, the Azera has an edge over the Avalon there too. It also provides an impressive 45.5 inches of front seat legroom compared to the 42.1 inches in the Avalon.
