The Azera was redesigned for 2012. The back seat is very wide – and in particular 2C is very wide and there is no seat belt overlap and flexible buckles for all 3 seats. This vehicle is well suited for fitting 2 car seats side by side and 3-across. In order to remove the head restraint for 2D or 2P, you must fold 2D/2P forward (otherwise the head restraints don’t clear the roof line). 2C is very elevated compared to the other seats – which can be a problem for fitting taller car seats, older kids in boosters, and adults in 2C – as at only 5’1″ tall, my head was about 1/2 inch from the roof when I sat in 2C. The 2012 redesign also got rid of the bulky seat belt hardware in 2C (this was a good change).
The Azera was first introduced for 2006. It offered lower anchors in 2D & 2P, tethers in all 3 spots, head restraints that were adjustable and removable in all 3 seats, and shoulder belts in all 3 seats.
