You need to go back and complain about this deal.
1. The doc fee in Nevada is completely optional (i.e., negotiable)
2. There is $1000 lease bonus cash on the Azera:
"Lease Bonus Cash Leasing Bonus Cash
Requirements and Restrictions:
Customer Bonus Cash is available towards leasing. Available on 36-48 month term contracts. Must finance through Hyundai Motor Finance.
Leasing Bonus Cash Start End
$1,000 01/03/2013 04/01/2013
Raise some hell with them; they were not honest with you.

I know the doc fee isn't mandatory and I told them exactly that, but they refused to budge on it.
I actually did get the $1,000 lease cash, in addition to the $750 loyalty discount, and $500 military discount for a total of $2,250 in incentives.
The doc fee was really the only part of the lease I wan't too happy with. I was able to get out of my Sonata lease a few months early though and not have to pay the disposition fee, so I can't complain too much.
I don't know what good complaining would do anyways since I already signed on the dotted line.

OK, i understand better now. You did get the 1000 lease cash as part of the 2250. Nice upgrade from the Sonata; I am jealous. My Sonata lease is up in 2 months but i am shopping the new Accord. Enjoy your new luxury car!

Thanks! Yeah it really is significantly nicer than the Sonata...and it should be since it is nearly double the price of the base model Sonata GLS I had. The engine is smooth and powerful, it is much quieter inside, the interior is amazing, and the Infinity sound system is pristine. No joke, this car is nicer than some of the much more expensive luxury cars I test drove. The panoramic sunroof and in-cabin ambient LED lighting at night are also pretty sweet.
I also shopped the new Accord, and it is a great car. I liked a few things about the Azera better...especially the looks and the feel that it is more of a luxury car than the Accord. The interior is nicer too. The Accord is a bit more reasonably priced, gets better mileage, and actually accelerates quite a bit faster if you get the V-6. But overall, I still like the Azera more.

I drove the new Avalon. It is a nice car, but the Azera's interior is better. Also, there are zero incentives on the Avalon right now and the money factor is high. It would have cost me over $100/month more to lease an Avalon, and that is in Touring trim which doesn't even have leather. To get leather, you are looking at $39K min for an Avalon which would have pushed the monthly payment well over $600/month. I could have leased a Mercedes E Class for less than that.
I drove the Audi A4 and A6. The A6 was nice, but way too pricey and the lease was pretty awful on it. The A4 was decent, but the Azera has a better interior. I also have kids, so the tiny trunk and back seat in the A4 didn't quite cut it for car seats and strollers.

A6 is very nice......how about a Cadillac CTS???? there are deals on them currently....

CTS is a bit dated now, especially with a redesign around the corner. I was actually considering the ATS, it was one of the best cars I drove out of the 15 or so cars that I compared. But just like the A4, it was way too small (and the CUE system sucks).
Not that it matters now...I am in the Azera lease for the next 36 months and I love the car.

cts is the best "barvarian/jap fighter "we have....ats is the 1 series competition
I'm looking for the "black series" cts-v with all the goodies...at one time the fastest production sedan.....no longer since the panamera is now faster...but not just for speed....cts is a great car....i don't think the mid cycle redesign will change styling...caddilac is into the new "wedge and chisiled" style now..cts wagon is also very nice....currently own a black over black 06 (25k mi) azera premium that has been flashed and dynoed 300 hp at the wheels lots of carbon fiber upgrades also....wouldn't trade it for any other azera that i've seen.. my daily driver is an 01Santa Fe with 150k mi m both were bought new at first launch for both models

Once you start tacking options onto the Cad, BMW, or Audi, they are way more expensive. For similar equipment levels to your Azera ( Heated Leather, moonroof, NAV, etc. ) the ATS, which has the same interior dimensions as the BMW 3 series ( except 2" less rear legroom ) is $42K and the BMW is $47K....and like you say - they have much less room.
For similar bucks, the Buick Lacrosse Premium II looks very competitive and features the HiPer strut suspension that eliminates torque steer in high powered FWD cars like the Azera. Our '06 Azera torque steers badly, get a downshift to 2nd on a crowned road and if I'm not holding on and anticipating the response, it would be easy to end up in the ditch.
Enjoy your new Azera!
