Hyundai has officially announced that when the 2011 Equus gets to dealerships in December, customers will have to pay upwards of $58,000 (€41,980). This means that the Equus costs $15,000 (€10,860) more than the Genesis 4.6, but the car still manages to be more affordable than rivals like the Lexus LS 460L ($70,925), BMW 750Li ($86,400) and Mercedes S550 ($91,600).

An appealing vehicle, the Equus comes with leather upholstery with an Alcantara headliner. The driver’s seat can give one a massage, and front seats are cooled/heated capable. Steering wheel can be heated; and a glass sunroof is in place. With power reclining / heated rear seats and power rear sunshades, this car is a pleasure to drive.

The engine is a 4.6-liter V8 with 385 hp (287 kW / 390 PS) and 333 lb-ft (451 Nm) of torque, connected to a six-speed ZF automatic transmission, which gets the car from 0-60 mph in less than 6.4 seconds.
