www.autobytel.com/hyundai/equus/2012/?id=32972 Everything you would expect in a luxury sedan can be found in the 2012 Hyundai Equus. In fact the Equus is a very nice alternative to Lexus, BMW, and Mercedes at a more affordable price. The Equus is a RWD long wheel base luxury sedan with a base price of $59,000. This is $15k-$30k less than is competition!

When the Equus was first launched in this country it came with a very respectable 4.6 liter engine. But the engine certainly did not have the guts to match up to some of the competitors in the luxury car segment. For the 2012 model year the Equus gets an updated GDI 5.0 liter V-8 engine produces huge numbers at 429 horsepower and 376 lb-ft. of torque. The transmission is an 8-speed automatic. Fuel economy figures are 15 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway.

Hyundai has gone to great lengths to shed the image that their cars lack character. Well the new fluidic design element is evident on the 2012 Hyundai Equus. Up front the Equus shares the same style front grill as the Genesis sedan. HID Xenon headlights equipped with LED turn signals really accent the exterior of this luxury sedan. The 19-inch chrome wheels are also a great touch and they perfectly accentuate the other chrome accents parts on the exterior. The Equus can easily be mistaken for a Lexus or other high-end luxury cars.

If you got behind the wheel of a 2012 Hyundai Equus, you might think you are in a Lexus LS 460. The gauges are very similar to that of other high-end luxury cars and the seat adjustments are located on the door just like they are in a Mercedes S550. There is an 8-inch navigation unit that also displays driver information located in the center dash. The whole interior is wrapped in high quality leather. There are lovely wood accents throughout. The audio is handled by a 608-watt Lexicon sound system. The driver's seats are 12-way adjustable and feature both heating and cooling. In the back there are two premium first-class seats that can recline and feature leg support. The center console in the rear is a mini fridge. The 2012 Hyundai Equus combines all the best features found on other luxury cars in one great package.

      Damn these Koreans sure know how to copy things, whether it be Samsung copying Apple, LG copying GE, or Hyundai copying Mercedes. I know I'll probably get downvoted for this, but from the bottom of your hearts, you all know this is true...

      I would love to remove the branding logos of this car and slap Mercedes S550 on it. Honestly, most people wouldnt know the difference.

      I feel like hyundai is supposed to be a moderately cheap car company. mercedes and audi make a more expensive stance. Hyundai should make another company if they're going to make a luxury cars.

      BMW 740 base price is $73,600

      and 740li $77,600

      Audi a8 starts at $75,100

      MB S class starts at 92k

      65k is pretty close to bmw7 and audi a8 base prices, except you get all the cool features in the Equus.

      these prices are from North America, not sure about Canada.

      Luxury is not patented by any car group. Second you even even sit in an equus your going off a big brand name and thinking your a hot shot. For Ex beats and other headphones its brand because you know them better doesn't make them 100 better than some lesser brand.

      75K for the base model model class??/ where are you shopping for an E class? on Mars?? E class starts at $51,000. brand new with zero miles.. If You get it maybe a year old with a few miles and you easily get it for $40,000 or less. You are an idiot to spend $43,000 on a Hyundai! I dont need to drive it to know. Its a fucking Hyundai. Thats all that counts. You are fool to spend that type of money on a hyundai.

      YOU are a complete fool if you spend $65,000 to buy a bullshit hyundai. That same money gets you a 5 series, merecedes E class, a Lexus, etc Buy A Hyundai for 65K??? are you kidding me??? Only a fool will shell out $65,000 for a Hyundai. The Equus and Genesis are complete flops. Their days are numbered in the United States! If Hyundai wants to enter building Luxury cars they need to come with a new name for their Luxury divison Like Honda did with Acura or Nissan did with Infiniti
