The 2012 Hyundai Equus remains to rival the likes of Lexus and Infiniti with its luxurious German features and finishes but cuts the competition at a striking bargain. Moving away from the much more daring Hyundai cars, the Equus remains to be a fine-looking and very much convincing luxury car that flows through right inside the gorgeous cabin. Hyundai offers much more space and standard high-technology features along with notable engine upgrade while maintaining a cheaper price than most luxury cars in the automotive market today. Critics are saying that the 2012 Hyundai Equus is inarguably a fine luxury sedan that is solidly engineered to give a favorably comfortable ride at a very attractive and relatively affordable price.
Hyundai gives the Equus a brand new powertrain for the year 2012 with a powerful 5.0-liter V8 coupled with eight-speed automatic transmission available in rear-drive only. Test drivers were definitely impressed by this superb luxury sedan that is well crafted and gives very powerful yet smooth going demeanor.
The 2012 Hyundai Equus’ steering have been said to be even better than Lexus LS in terms of feel and response. It holds the line well in corners and is capable of reeling on twisty roads despite the large size and substantial weight. It is most probably due to the electrohydraulic steering that Hyundai made use of. Reviewers love the fact that this vehicle gives drivers and passengers the feeling of being connected to the road especially on Sport mode.
EPA had rated this at 15/23 mpg city/highway.
Most critics agree that the 2012 Hyundai Equus’ look is like a mixture of every luxurious car there is. And Hyundai did a good job with a very attractive end product.
Inside the cabin, it is still a tasteful combination of everything that is good and luxurious without being too distinctive. It actually balances everything from themes and colors to ergonomics and design. There is sufficient headroom and legroom for adults and only first-class materials were used.
