2011 Hyundai Equus $10,000 Less Than Competition
That's pricey for a Hyundai, but a great deal for a large luxury car, as it's in the same category as the Audi A8, Lexus LS 460, Mercedes-Benz S-Class and BMW 7 Series (though $10,000 less).
The Equus will be the automaker's first foray into this class of competition.
It will be offered in two trims: Signature and Ultimate. Each trim comes with a 385-horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 with a six-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive.
Its interior is quietly elegant and top notch, with a long list of comforts: adaptive cruise control; 12-way power driver and 10-way power passenger seats (with heating and cooling, plus massage for the driver); reclining rear seats (with heating); a leather-wrapped dash; real wood interior trim; a 608-watt, Lexicon 7.1 surround-sound audio system with 17 speakers.
If you're considering a luxury large sedan, but don't want to pay the piper for a luxury nameplate like Audi or BMW, the new Equus is for you. In dealer showrooms this December.
