2011 Hyundai Equus Review and Prices

About 2011 Hyundai Equus

The all-new 2011 Hyundai Equus made its first public appearance in the 2009 New York Auto Show. It indeed yielded a surprise but fans are in for a pleasant surprise as this super-luxury sedan has got several things in store for the brand’s avid patrons.

The release of this model marks Hyundai’s entrance into the lucrative auto market wherein it will be placed side by side with other successful brands. But it does boast offering an extensive list of features normally available in more expensive models, without charging consumers with the same price range.

The exterior design for the 2011 Hyundai Equus appears to be quite normal and ordinary at first. But do not be deceived since there is a whole lot in store for you here. It might not “wow” on the outside, but its real power lies on the inside of this vehicle. Speaking of which, this vehicle is powered by a Lambda 3.8-liter V6 engine, capable of producing a maximum of 290 horsepower for the Korean model. Meanwhile, US models will get a 5-liter engine.

The interior is also equipped with nearly the same features as seen on the BMW or Mercedes-Benz vehicle models, thus managing to impress despite of its affordable price range. Some of the key interior features incorporated here are heated and massaging front and rear seats, 17-speaker Lexicon sound system, polished walnut trim, soft-grain leather seating, and other such features that offer a comfortable and luxurious ride. It is also equipped with car safety features to give you peace of mind during each ride. These safety features offer the latest technology in the auto industry, such as improved traction control, airbags, pre-safety seatbelt system, and lane-departure warning system.

When it comes to driving performance, you can choose to use the manual shift control but there is also an option for 8-speed automatic transmission.

    This car is impressive! Here at Orlando Hyundai, we had the first look at Equus and what we can say is this car is absolutely beautiful! From clean lines, to a very roomy, plush interior – gorgeous! Not to mention, the drive feels like you’re on a cloud – no bumps and steering is grounded! I would recommend test driving this car before purchasing that BMW, Mercedes or Lexus!
