Hyundai Announces Pricing for the All-New Equus

Includes Complimentary Valet Service and Maintenance for 5 Years, 60,000 Miles

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- Hyundai Motor America has announced pricing for the all-new Equus luxury sedan. The lavishly contented Equus Signature will be priced at $58,000 and the top-of-the-line Equus Ultimate at $64,500. Hyundai Equus brings a fresh approach to product innovation and the ownership experience in this price segment.

Every Equus comes standard with "At Your Service," Hyundai's revolutionary approach to the luxury ownership experience that provides complimentary valet service and covers all maintenance needs for 5 years or 60,000 miles. With "At Your Service," Hyundai Equus owners enjoy no-charge maintenance, including complimentary oil and filter changes, brake pads and rotors, wiper blades, and battery. Valet pickup and drop-off is provided for all warranty, maintenance and service repairs, and a Genesis or Equus replacement vehicle is provided while the owner's car is at the dealership.

The Equus retail and ownership experience includes other innovative and time-saving premium services such as:

"Your Time, Your Place," the industry's first at-home vehicle demonstration program
Equus Champion (product expert) at each authorized Equus dealer
Apple iPad with interactive owner's manual capability
Equus Customer Connect Center hotline (phone and e-mail) for VIP customer service

"We're confident that smart luxury buyers will discover that Equus competes well with similar flagship products from Mercedes-Benz, BMW, Audi and Lexus," said John Krafcik, Hyundai Motor America president and CEO. "But the traditional luxury brands simply can't compete with the unique retail and ownership experience we'll be providing for the Equus owner, including "Your Time, Your Place," the industry's first at-home vehicle demonstration program; the "At Your Service" program, which provides complimentary valet at-home pickup and no-charge maintenance for five years or 60,000 miles; and the industry's first iPad-based interactive owner's manual."

Equus arrives at select Hyundai dealerships in December. Hyundai expects the premium luxury market to total close to 45,000 units this year.
