2011 HYUNDAI EQUUS

Hyundai breaks down the barriers of owning a luxury car with the introduction of its all-new flagship, the 2011 Equus.
Equus competes with the best luxury sedans in the world on all levels including amenities, performance, advanced technologies, design and ownership experience.
Equus is built on Hyundai’s world-class rear-wheel-drive architecture. It is powered by the award-winning 4.6-liter Tau V-8. The Tau inside the Equus produces an estimated 385 horsepower using premium fuel and 378 horsepower using regular fuel. With technology rivaling more expensive luxury sedans, Equus showcases features such as a lane departure warning system, electronic air suspension, smart cruise control and a Lexicon audio system.
The design of the Equus is handsome and pleasing to the eye. The rear-end treatment is progressive with bold taillights, strong shoulders and an overall look of precision. The side silhouette is refined, with character lines that accent the rear fenders. Up front is a subtle horizontal radiator grille and well-proportioned headlamps with jeweled detailing.
The leather upholstery, Alcantara headliner, natural wood trim and leather-wrapped French-stitched instrument panel showcase the richness of the Equus interior.
While the Equus is large, it doesn’t feel over-sized or clumsy, that’s due to its 37.7 foot turning circle and variable-effort steering system. Equus benefits from the precise wheel control delivered by its five-link front and rear suspension geometry. The standard 19-inch chrome alloy wheel and tire package with staggered width (P245/45R19 front P275/40R19 rear) tires offers excellent gripping power and precise control.
Base model estimated mpg: 16/24
Estimated starting price: $58,000
