Hyundai and its subsidiary Kia is currently the 7th largest car group in the world.
It is also the fastest rising one and a fearsome rival to Western car makers. In 2001, Hyundai increase its
car sales in United States by 4% over the previous year. This was considered a record for that year.
The Hyundai Azera is one of the most technologically advanced and safest vehicles Hyundai has built. Other
Hyundai models include the Tuscon, Sonata, and the Elanta.
"Whether with people or people movers, first impressions start with appearance. Azera has a refined design. Leaning ever so slightly on the sporty side of this conservative sector, with styling that is particularly striking from the back. A light bar stretches full length from side to side, wrapping around the corners."
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave five-star crash test ratings, the highest government rating under the agency's New Car Assessment Program, to the all-new 2007 Hyundai Veracruz and Santa Fe for both frontal and side-impact crash tests. The 2007 Elantra also scored five stars for frontal crash performance and Veracruz earned four stars for rollover performance.
