2014 Hyundai Equus

A Lesson In How To Out-Lexus The LS I think that the new BMW 4 Series is an attractive coupe. The design is a little bit on the wrong side of "fussy" I'll grant you, and I don't particularly care for the look of the scalloped, black-bordered vents on the fender sides – functional though they may be.

    New York: 2014 Hyundai Equus gallops into New York with first major refresh
    1364427000

    Hyundai isn't horsing around with the Equus, its premium luxury sedan offering, for the 2014 model year. As stated in the automaker's press release, "Equus is the number-one shopped premium luxury sedan, well ahead of Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, Audi A8, Lexus LS, and Jaguar XJ." We're not entirely certain what "number-one shopped" means, but ...

    SEMA 2010: Rhys Millen, Mummbles Marketing and DUB bow at the altar of Equus
    1288812060

    Ten years ago, when Hyundai came to SEMA for the first time, it did so with Tucson and Veracruz models with wacky appliques. Now, like Jay Z, they've rolled up Big Pimpin' with three Equus luxocruisers dressed and dropped by the likes of Rhys Millen, Mummbles, and DUB magazine. The Mummbles Marketing steed, nicknamed the "Elegant Equus," has had its ...

    1288532220

Hyundai has teamed up with DUB Magazine and Mummbles Marketing on a pair of Equus sedans. The DUB Equus shows surprising restraint. While it wears 24-inch wheels, they blend in nicely with ...

    Hyundai teases Rhys Millen Racing's Equus for SEMA

    At first blush (and second blush, and third...), it doesn't quite seem fitting that Hyundai would choose to bling out its range-topping Equus sedan for the rapidly approaching SEMA Show in Las Vegas. Still, here we are with a Rhys Millen Racing Signature Edition Hyundai Equus... for better or for worse. For those keeping track, this is the third ...

    1270140840

    Hyundai showed off its new Sonata Turbo and Sonata Hybrid yesterday at the New York Auto Show, two vehicles that should help keep the brand's mid-size sedan moving up the sales charts with a bullet. With March sales figures just trickling in, it looks like the Sonata is now the third best-selling mid-size sedan behind the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord. ...

    2011 Hyundai Equus arrives to take on the big guns

    When the first Hyundai Excels rolled onto American roads in the late-1980s, it was hard to image the Korean automaker getting taken seriously as a builder of budget cars. Taking on the likes of Mercedes-Benz and BMW would have been an absurd thought. And yet later this year that is exactly what Hyundai is doing as the new Equus begins to arrive at ...

    If you think the Genesis sedan is nice, wait'll you get a load of Hyundai's home-market luxu-flagship, the Equus. The automaker has one prominently on display here at the New York Auto Show this week, and while it's supposed to merely be a "Look, this is how awesome we can be" thing (there's no plan for the Equus to be sold here at this time), you can bet ...

    Despite our earlier speculation, Hyundai's upcoming BH model won't be a replacement for the Korean Equus. Hyundai Motor Co. says now that its new "BH" luxury car will slot in between the Azera and the Equus, in a spot formerly filled by the front-wheel drive Dynasty.

    Hyundai's working on a rear-wheel-drive successor to its home-market Equus luxury sedan. The car's expected to debut at the New York Auto Show in April, and these most recent spy shots show it with less camouflage than we've seen it wearing in the past. You can't see the front end, but you get a really good look at the clean flanks. The roofline pays homage ...
