Super Bowl Car Ads; Some of the Best Ever

02.17.16 - Christopher Walken Kia Commercial

The Super Bowl gives companies a platform for advertising that is unlike any other. With the largest crowd of the year watching this one event companies pay more money each year for the right to advertise during this game even if it’s only a spot that takes up thirty seconds of time. The visibility for this one spot is a great way for companies to show off new products which is one reason why so many car companies are advertised during this big game. It probably doesn’t hurt that car companies make more money than most other industries as well to have the advertising budgets to handle the cost of multiple spots.

2015 Hyundai Azera: A Mid-Sized Luxury Sedan at an Affordable Price

2015 Hyundai Azera

Hyundai seems to be reshaping the auto world by putting more features in their cars for a better price than most of the competition. The Azera is no exception to this rule for Hyundai and enters the market as a mid-sized luxury sedan at a price many can afford for their daily driver. Offering great power and fuel economy along with industry leading safety features the Azera makes an impressive choice for any shopper who is looking for a great car to drive and impress their friends, family and themselves.

Because the Azera is from Hyundai and not one of the mainstream luxury makers this car is put in the class with the Honda Accord, Toyota Avalon, Buick LaCrosse and Nissan Maxima which makes it an almost unfair competitor with all its great features and equipment along with the performance numbers that put others to shame. For this model year the Azera adds a ton of great safety features and has the packages offered on last year’s model put into standard equipment for different trim levels. In addition to this the Azera adds a hands-free Smart Trunk Opener available at Hyundai dealers and a new eight-inch LCD navigation and multimodal interface with the integration of Google POI and Apple’s Eyes-Free Siri.
