Consumers are all dying to know if Hyundai will actually be able to redefine the brands name to one that is associated with extravagant and luxury cars. The Hyundai Equus will be coming to American markets in 2011 hoping to entice customers with its sleek design and new technology.
Hyundai is estimating that the Equus will be in the $50,000-$60,000 range which is a clear distinction from the other models made by the brand. With the Hyundai Genesis winning the North American Car Award of the Year and having a successful sales rate the Equus is Hyundai’s next step on the road to being in the same class as BMW, Lexus, Mercedes, and other competitors.
The engine is an 8-speed automatic transmission that is electronically controlled and a 5.0-liter V8 is being tested for the car. The Equus also gets a shocking 24-MPG on the highway. Nothing is spared when it comes to luxury on the interior of the car. Each person has the ability to set the temperature control for his or her seat. The navigation screen is high definition and each Equus has the Lexicon 7.1 Surround Sound system for quality listening.
Nine Airbags throughout the car ensure top-notch safety. In addition to airbags the Hyundai Equus also Lane Departure Warning System which, “triggers a warning light, audible chime, and haptic tug via the seatbelt when the vehicle departs a lane without a turn signal, to help ensure lane-keeping for potentially distracted drivers.” The Equus is made to keep the driver and passengers safe with high-tech features that are the new generation of safety mechanisms.
Along with the built in technology the Equus is also coming equipped with a 16 GB ipad. Yes that’s right every car will come with an ipad that has a Hyundai app with the owners manual and a notification system letting the driver know when maintenance is required on the car.
