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 head-to-head with the likes of Infiniti, BMW and even Mercedes. Hyundai could use its 3.8-liter V6 to power the Equus, but also may opt for a V8 to be competitive. No doubt, however, that Hyundai's first rear-wheel drive, luxury sedan
will offer a lot of value for a reasonable price.
