Just about everyone knows what a Hyundai is now days and many enthusiasts have given them proper respect for building a quality vehicle in segments once mainly dominated by Japanese automakers. Recently Motor Trend thought that the new 2011 Hyundai Equus, their new flagship luxury vehicle, is worthy for comparison to the new 2011 Bentley Mulsanne.

Sure Hyundai is a well respected automotive brand but to put it up against a new Bentley seems rather ludicrous. Have they lost their mind? Is the Hyundai Equus a ‘real luxury car’? The new Hyundai Equus sells for around $70K while the new Bentley Mulsanne in the comparison sells for an astonishing $330K. Big difference!  Let’s see what Motor Trend has to say in the new comparison video below. Enjoy!

Hyundai, pronounced like “Sunday”, won’t be going for a slow Sunday drive in its new 2011 Equus and Genesis sedan because they will both be packing 429 Horsepower from a 5.0-liter Tau V8.

The Hyundai Genesis sedan is already a relatively quick car for its size when optioned out with the current 4.6-liter 385hp V8. Hyundai has taken that engine and beefed it up and will now be fitting it in the 2011 Genesis sedan and Equus as an option. There is also some speculation that this new direct-injection 5.0-liter V8 will make it to the Genesis Coupe which would be a Ford Mustang GT 5.0 fighter among others in the same segment.
