Hyundai Azera large sedan officially dead in America

Hyundai has released its 2018 working model year information, and it appears the Azera won’t be making the cut for the new year. The large sedan has been cut from the American lineup, even if overseas markets will still have access to the car. In fact, those markets wishes enjoy a fully redesigned model with muscular lines and an upright fascia.

Hyundai’s premises for dropping the Azera model is that other Hyundai models, as well as the prevalent crop of Genesis cars, are becoming more widely appealing. So, basically, the constricted range of consumers that demanded a larger, more “luxurious” vehicle than the Sonata, but weren’t complaisant to make the small jump to a Genesis, is too small to keep the model around.

There are a duo of other noteworthy changes in the 2018 Hyundai lineup. The new Accent sedan is at rest on its way to dealerships, but the Accent hatchback is gone. Since the company hasn’t shown an Mark hatch yet, we’re not completely surprised by its omission. What is odd is that there’s no hint in Hyundai’s word choice at it being introduced at a later date. Despite that, there’s still the promise Hyundai will simply introduce a hatchback version later, as it did with the Elantra and Elantra GT. And perhaps, in the blood-vessel of that i30-based Elantra GT, the Accent hatch could be based on the i20 this period.

Speaking of hatchbacks, the Veloster won’t have a 2018 model year. Instead, the 2017 replica year has been extended through 2018. We of course know that the Veloster isn’t prevailing away permanently, since we’ve seen spy photos of new versions. So we suspect that this wish model year indicates that we’ll see the new Veloster by the end of this year, or possibly the start of 2018, with a organize a few months after for the 2019 model year.
