Hyundai is almost ready to sell you a 2012 Azera. Before it does that, however, it needs your help. The Korean automaker has posted a link that leads you to a configurator for the 2012 Azera, and there is a survey posted at the end. The configurator will give you a good idea of how much the Azera will end up costing, as well as what color choices will be made available.

We built our own 2012 Azera, and think it looks mighty fine in Smoke Gray Metallic with a Graphite Black leather interior. Checking the box for the Premium Package, our prototype Azera would cost us around $36,000.

Check out the configurator for yourself by clicking here, and be sure to answer the survey at the end. Maybe your decisions will help dictate what type of car we see when the Azera is revealed at the 2011 Los Angeles Auto Show.

      I think that Hyundai is having too much expectations with the pricing of this new Azera. For $36,000, why not get a Mercedes? In their survey, they had listed other competitor's cars of the same class, and currently half of those are about $25,000. Only the Maxima and Avalon is 30k plus. Hyundai needs to reduce the MSRP to 25k range.

        The Toyota Avalon starts at $33k and the Maxima starts at $31k. This will have more standard features than both as well as more options. The Charger and Taurus can shoot past $40k.

      Some people need to get something straight. Hyundai and Kia are not the same as they used to been. They got better, they changed whole lot. There are much better the GM. People just need to stop!

      Another blatant ad. Buy Time/Warner stock. AB/AOL is now an exclusive advertising agency for H/K and Toyota.

      This car is sure to be hit. For the last few years, the Azera has caught in the awkward middle.ground between the Sonata and Genesis. Its a nice car, but the Sonata has as much room, better mileage, and is cheaper. The Genesis sedan meanwhile drives much nicer, and can be had for not much more money if you can live with the V6. This car looks to.finally have found a comfortable spot in the model lineup. And if drives as good as it looks, it should be a pretty good buy. Def a good alternative to a Lacrosse, Taurus, Avalon.

      This is about the only company impressing me with their design and direction. Hyundai has really stepped up and once people forget about their old cars and start focusing on the new hyundai i believe they will become the number one brand here in america. I would just like to see them made in america

        Hyundai builds 80% of the vehicle they sell to Americans in america. Which makes them the most american company on the road.

          "Which makes them the most american company on the road." 100% false.

      hyundai dealers out in force today. It's not a bad looking car, but it still has a cheap/awkward-looking hyundai exterior (less is more, hyundai designers)

      I personally would be a little wary dropping over $35k on a Hyundai (except for the Genesis), especially so dangerously near the entry point for an A4 or 3-series... But I know the car will be a hit, and rightfully so. It looks a millon times better than the current Azera. Also this configurator only has one option, so ... What kind of survey purposes could this possibly for? Very curious to know what the marketing teams are up to here.
