Also, it already has the Sonata as its entry in the midsize class, and they don't want to compete against themselves.
Actually, as of 06 the Sonata is now classified as a large car by the EPA. This "upsizing" seems to be a Hyundai strategy to provide something different.

Well, yes, but it's being marketed as a mid-size. The Azera, presumably, is being marketed as their large car.
And, yes, it's deliberate upsizing, and I fully support that.
Now if only they'd come out with a convertable - but that's a completely different forum...
