2016 Azera

Upscale Sedan Provides Convenience Features

Hyundai has sweetened the deal when you buy a new Azera sedan for 2016 by adding features like an electronic parking brake, smart cruise control and stop/start capability. This advanced sedan also provides a powerful V6 engine that not only generates almost 300 horsepower, but scores 29 miles per gallon on the highway. When teamed with the 6-speed automatic transmission, the result is a seamless transition through the gears as you power onto the freeway or pass large trucks on mountain inclines. See and drive the premium Hyundai Azera for yourself with a visit to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Azera Design Based on Aerodynamic Principles

Drivers are forgiven if the design of the Azera reminds them of a fighter jet. With long, low lines that melt into the rear panels and a slim roofline that is accentuated by the third window, the Azera gives the illusion of movement even when it’s standing still. The LED headlights wrap around the side for maximum illumination while a chrome grill that follows the slant of the headlights sets off the aggressive face of the car. Whether you pick the 18-inch or 19-inch wheels depends on your taste and how masculine you want your car to look.

Step Inside for a Real Taste of Luxury

When you first sit inside the new Azera you’ll be forgiven for being slightly disappointed in your living room furniture. Plush leather and lots of leg and headroom are all standard in this luxury vehicle that treats its passengers as long-lost friends who need a warm hug. A 12-way power driver seat with memory makes sure that you cannot only find a comfortable position for long journeys, but that your seat position is available at the touch of a button after letting someone else drive. Seat temperature and dual climate controls ensure all passengers are comfortable whether the trip is short or long.

Ride Not Only Comfortable, But Responsive

By utilizing MacPherson struts for the front suspension along with coil springs, Hyundai has created a suspension system that provides a great feel for the road while still creating a cloud-soft ride. Independent rear suspension and Amps Selective Dampers allow you to dial in the suspension based on driving preference and road conditions to create the perfect handling experience. The Azera is also loaded with modern safety technology like blind spot detection, rear cross-traffic alert and available lane departure warning for those long trips at night when you might tend to lose focus.

SEMA ARK Performance Genesis Coupe

New Take on Sporty Model Develops 500 Horses

It’s customary for automakers to create one-off versions of their most popular cars for the annual SEMA motor show. Hyundai has teamed up with Ark Performance to turn the already sporty Genesis Coupe into a fire-breathing dragon. By stroking out the standard 3.8-liter engine to 4.0-liters and strengthening the engines inner workings, Ark has added a Rotrex supercharger to create a 500-plus horsepower Genesis. “The Genesis Coupe is the perfect platform for developing our performance product lineup,” said Keven Bentley, Marketing and Sales Manager for Ark. “Hyundai’s 3.8-liter engine is strong enough to handle all the extra power we’re now developing, and the chassis is well balanced and easy to modify, allowing us to create this lowered, aggressive stance while maintaining that clean look we’re going for.” Although the public isn’t allowed to attend SEMA, you can see the original sporty Genesis for yourself with a visit to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Wider Visual Look Comes From Powerful Stance

Ark has taken the standard Genesis Coupe, already hailed by auto reviewers as a great choice for an inexpensive sports car, and lowered and widened it just a bit using the company’s “Solus” body kit. The result is a more aggressive look that devours the road as drivers race around hairpin turns. Ark also remodeled the entire interior, with a new dashboard, gauges and trim elements made from lightweight carbon fiber. An Ark Legato spoiler and carbon fiber front splitter rounds out the new design. The vehicle will be on display at the SEMA show in Las Vegas beginning November 3.

Genesis Coupe Built for the Driving Enthusiast

The Hyundai Genesis Coupe comes in three models, all built for various degrees of driving excitement. The standard model comes with a 348-horsepower engine mated with a 6-speed manual transmission and 18-inch alloy wheels. The R-Spec adds a track-tuned suspension system, Brembo brakes and limited-slip differential to help you keep control. Move up to the Ultimate trim package for Xenon headlights, navigation system, leather seats, power sunroof and power driver seat slide. Aluminum pedals round out the package. Drive the Genesis and see what responsive handling and performance are all about with a trip to Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Safety Comes First for Genesis Coupe

Hyundai engineers recognize the importance of safety when delivering a true sports car for public consumption. Crumple zones, six airbags and door beams that absorb side impact are all strategically placed for optimum passenger safety. Other available safety features include Electronic Stability Control and Traction Control System.

Bisimoto Engineering’s First CUV is the Most-Powerful Tucson Ever

Auto Show Features Best and Brightest Innovations

Automakers and those from associated industries live for the annual Special Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show, scheduled this year for the first week in November in Las Vegas. SEMA is a chance to network, build business and learn what innovations other manufacturers are offering. For some automakers, SEMA is a chance to show off just what they’ve been doing for the past year. In the case of Hyundai, part of the showing off is a concept 700-horsepower Tucson the company built with Bisimoto Engineering. Although you can’t buy a 700-horsepower Tucson, the popular SUV is available for driving at Chapman Hyundai Scottsdale.

Brute Ute Unveiling at Press Conference

Nicknamed the “Brute Ute,” the uber-powerful Tucson will first be shown at Hyundai’s press conference during the first day of SEMA on November 3. Bisimoto took a 2.4-liter Hyundai engine, strengthened the internals and married the package with a turbocharger and enhanced engine management system. “The 2016 Tucson was the perfect platform for this year’s build, offering me the opportunity to captivate a wider audience by tapping into the growing popularity of the CUV market,” according to Bisi Ezerioha, owner of Bisimoto. He said the engine has gone through “hundreds of hours” of testing and he is confident it can handle whatever they throw at it.

Exterior Takes on Street Fighter Look

Although the 2016 Tucson is rugged-looking vehicle right off the production line, Bisimoto made some changes to create a beast worthy of a 700-horsepower engine. Along with air-ride suspension, white racing wheels and a custom roll cage, Bisimoto removed the front grille entirely and replaced it with an intercooler to keep all systems functioning at optimal temperatures. Powder coating and strategic use of aluminum piping added to the final look.
