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. But for the most part, I find the coupe to be pretty pleasing to look at. You all, by and large, do not care for the 4 Series. (For the sake of constructing my intellectual argument, I'm going to make the ridiculous statistical assumption that the 140 or so comments on our 4 Series ... Read More

    Kia K9 sedan spied, upscale cues include Maserati-style side vents
    1298851320

    Remember the proposed Kia K9 luxury sedan? Apparently, it's a reality, as spy shots of the Kia flagship have hit a web forum in Korea. As you can see, the K9's camouflage (which sneakily includes Hyundai Genesis wheels) doesn't obscure a set of Maserati Quattroporte-style fender ports. Just how upmarket is Kia shooting with this? Well, according to the ...

    Spy Shots: Will Rhys Millen drive a Hyundai Equus at Pikes Peak this year?
    1267799520

    Judging by these spy shots of a Hyundai Equus we just received from an alert reader, the Korean brand may be considering giving Rhys Millen a new ride to try and break the class record he set last year at Pikes Peak. Recall that in 2009, Millen ran up the 14,110-foot Colorado mountan-side in 12 minutes, 9.397 seconds at the wheel of a Genesis coupe. ...

    Spy Shots: Long-wheelbase Equus prototype is one big Hyundai
    1249680900

    Just when you were getting comfortable with Hyundai's $39,000 Genesis, the Korean automaker sprung the $50,000 Equus on you. Now, Hyundai has upped the stakes with the Equus VL500, a long wheel-base version of its Korean-market (and possibly U.S.-bound) flagship. The engine bay in the long-wheelbase version is the first Hyundai to swallow the 5.0-liter ...

    This is the new Hyundai Equus in the steel and on U.S. roads, courtesy of Autoblog reader Alex. Depending on dealer reaction to the car, Hyundai could-maybe-possibly-might bring it to America. If so, we would then find out if Hyundai could do what Volkswagen was incapable of doing with its Phaeton: Charge top-tier money for a top-tier product wearing a ...

    VIDEO: First glimpse of Hyundai Equus in motion
    1235480340

    Based on the credibility that Hyundai has managed to earn with its Genesis sedan and by how much we're looking forward to its sportier sibling, the Genesis Coupe, we have a good feeling about the upcoming Equus luxury sedan from the Korean automaker. The big question is whether the world – and the United States in particular – is ready for a ...

    Spy Shots: A more revealing look at the reportedly U.S.-bound Hyundai Equus
    1232736900

    Take a Hyundai Genesis, put it in a giant taffy machine and give it a serious stretch out, add some details like a reshaped rear three-quarter and some Lexus LS exhaust tips, then call it the Hyundai Equus. Oh, and give it a price of 130,000,000 South Korean won (about $93,471 USD). That's about thirty million won more than the current generation – ...

    SPY SHOTS - Hyundai Equus replacement sheds more camo
    1173642180

    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 ...

    Spy Shots: 2008 Equus shows Hyundai is serious about luxury
    1169744640

    Hyundai's looking to bust into the highly-competitive entry-level luxury field with the 2008 Equus. The South Korean automaker already has the safety and luxury appointments thing down with the Azera, but the Equus appears to promise much more. With a spec sheet that includes rear-wheel-drive, V8 power, and a $30,000+ sticker price, Hyundai is clearly ...

    More spy shots are emerging of Hyundai's upcoming rear-wheel drive large sedan, the Equus. Likely to be renamed before it goes on sale here in the U.S., the Equus sports a 116-inch wheelbase, more than half a foot longer than the Azera's 109.4-inch wheelbase. The Equus will likely not replace the Azera, but slot in the lineup above it where it will go ...

    Before Hyundai brings its first V8 RWD luxury vehicle to market next year we hope the name changes. Equus? Why would you name a car after a genus of the family Equidae that comprises horses, asses and zebras? Regardless, The Car Connection reports the car's interior will live up to luxury car standards with the requisite wood trim and leather seating ...
