2011 Hyundai Equus Review Debuts In New York

The 2011 Hyundai Equus to prove that a Lexus LS 460 in the scene by offering the best value proposition in the luxury flagship segment. We want to see how Hyundai's new range-topping model stand to-day hard day American life, and so we just added one to the Autoblog Garage Long Term.

Yes, this is a Hyundai that has an MSRP—not including a $900 freight charge—of $64,500. Yes, you read “Hyundai” and “$64,500” in the same sentence. People can quibble all day as to whether that should be the case, but as someone likes to say to me with an unassailable logic, “It is what it is.”

The things that quite luxurious for rear seat passengers, as features such as lying down power and massage functions have been added, and the rear entertainment system, refrigerator, power headrests and illuminated vanity mirrors. And yes, our car did have a lie right rear passenger seat. Check out the full list of our cars on the Monroney equipment.

Before we proceed, we must acknowledge that we have not organized as we had planned with another update on our two long-term cars - the Subaru Legacy 2.5 GT and the Volkswagen Jetta TDI Cup Street. You will hear about the good fortune in the near future so, and to fix this problem with disorder, we will update our long-term is slightly different from Equus.

There is are additional goodies for those who opt for the Equus Ultimate (there are two trim levels: Signature for $58,000 and Ultimate for $64,500), of which only two are of interest to anyone but the rear-seat occupants: the forward-view cornering camera (this, presumably, helps when trying to edge out onto a perpendicular street in that there is an image on the navigation screen of the front view with a bit on either side) and the power trunk lid (what can be said?). The other items include a rear entertainment system and increased luxuriation of the rear seats (yes, I just made that word up, but there is no other word for it: what happens when you pile lux on lux?).
