I think the 4-cylinder engine may still come from the ROK though.

That Azera Limited you mentioned has more features than your Aura (i.e. power rear sunshade, eight airbags, auto-wipers), has more peformance and handles, well, both aren't handling experts but more than adequate on both.
The reason why Azera has a higher price range is because it doesn't compete directly with the Aura, the Sonata does.
By the way, I am really digging the interior on the 09 Sonata facelift. That is one area of flaw from most critics and Hyundai responded very well. The latest pics of the exterior has me convinced this should be a successful facelift. Looking forward to seeing the North American spec (at the Detroit auto show, along with the Geensis/BH RWD luxury sedan), which I have been told should vary somewhat from the S. Korean spec but not by a lot.

I realize now that the Azera is more of a luxury sedan.
Horse power and weight are almost identical to the Aura XR.
It's only a blink slower to 60 MPH
I get 30 MPG on the high way I don't know how well the Azera will do with 0.2 more liters in the DOHC V-6. What ever it is it is acceptable I'm sure.
It must have a bit more hip room and leg room than my XR too.
I am going to watch this one very closely for the next year or so. Might have to put one in my driveway.
