The 2011 Hyundai Equus is an all-new luxury car from the Korean automaker better known for its value-laden lineup. A 385 horsepower, 4.6-liter V-8 rests underneath the hood of the 2011 Hyundai Equus. Also capable of producing 333 lb-ft of torque, this engine is coupled to the rear wheels by way of a six-speed automatic transmission.
The Equus maintains Hyundai's traditionally low MSRP in comparison to other new luxury cars, but still matches its competitors feature for feature. The full-size sedan comes standard with heated and cooled leather seats (and a massage feature for the driver), a heated steering wheel, adaptive HID headlights, adaptive cruise control, a navigation system and a long list of additional luxury equipment. Upgrading to the Ultimate trim brings with it highlights such as heated, cooled and massaging rear seats with a reclining feature, a DVD entertainment system and a power foot rest for the front passenger. Advanced technologies such as a cornering camera to assist in piloting the large sedan are also included on the top tier model.
