Santa Rosa, CA: Manly Hyundai (, the leading Hyundai dealer in California, is pleased to announce that the Hyundai Azera equipped with standard side airbags, earns the Second Highest rating of acceptable.

Hyundai's exciting new 2006 Hyundai Azera has received the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s (IIHS) top crash test rating for frontal offset impacts. These results reflect Hyundai’s commitment to unsurpassed safety across its entire model lineup.

The IIHS ratings for the crashworthiness of passenger vehicles are based on a 40 mph frontal offset tests, in which the driver side of the front of a vehicle strikes a deformable barrier. Performances are ranked with comparative ratings of "good," "acceptable," "marginal" or "poor." The Azera earned an overall "good" rating in the tests.

The Azera features the most standard safety technologies in its class, including standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC) with Traction Control System (TCS) and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).

When the Institute began its side impact test program in 2003, simulating an impact in which a vehicle is struck by a pickup or SUV, few of the vehicles that were tested had head-protecting side airbags as standard equipment. The Hyundai Azera was upgraded in 2006 with standard curtain-style airbags as well as chest airbags that protect both front- and rear-seat occupants.

The Azera also comes with eight standard airbags, including advanced dual front airbags, front and rear seat-mounted side-impact airbags, and roof-mounted side curtain airbags for both front and rear outboard seat occupants. Active front head restraints provide extra protection against whiplash in rear-end collisions.

The Manly Hyundai in California also broadens its services to the nearby cities like Sebastopol, Windsor, Petaluma, Rohnert Park, Healdsburg, Napa, Vallejo, Richmond, Fairfax, Cotati, Cloverdale and Sonoma City.
