Sorry America, Europe & Australia, You Won’t Be Getting New 2017 Hyundai Azera, At Least Not As Is

#Hyundai has cleared the air regarding the availability of their new generation 2017 Azera in the USA: we won’t be getting it, and we’re not the only ones.

Speaking to Carscoops, a US spokesman for the Korean company said: “Hyundai will sell the all-new Azera in all global markets except for Australia, Europe and North America. The all-new Azera will not be sold in the U.S.”

But here’s where things get a bit confusing, as the spokesperson added: “Considering the importance of Hyundai Motor's flagship model in overseas markets, Hyundai is currently reviewing the possibility of introducing a US-specific model that reflects the needs of customers in North America".

Does that mean Hyundai will develop and offer a different model based on the Azera for the States, or perhaps even market a restyled version of the car under their just launched Genesis brand as an entry-level premium sedan – think Lexus ES rival? We don’t know yet, but we did ask Hyundai for a clarification and we’ll update this post as soon as we hear back from them.

In Korea, where the Azera is available as the Grandeur, sales of the new generation mid-size sedan will start next month, with further details expected to be announced in the coming days and weeks.
