German and Detroit automakers will have reasons to worry for Hyundai is all set to unleash its land yacht, the Equus. Powered a 385-horsepower engine, this luxury cruise is bestowed with leather accents and a host of other upscale features.
Its list of luxe attributes includes heated and cooled massaging back seat, excellent 17-speaker Lexicon audio system, watching movies on the 7.1 DTS surround-sound system, 8-inch LCD video screen and a shoebox-sized thermoelectric fridge between the seats. The only flipside here seems to be the miniscule LCD and absence of a headphone jack for listening to music through stereo speakers could be injurious to your safety in the car.
The car can achieve as much as 16 mpg in the city, 24 on the highway and 19 combined. its interiors are characterized by butter-soft leather, with an Alcantara suede headliner, walnut (or birch) veneer and polished-aluminum accents. Hyundai will be this in two versions namely, the Ultimate package aimed at the rich masses who can afford a chauffeur and the Signature Package which would be hitting the streets of USA. The signature package doesn’t have massaging and reclining rear seat, the fridge and a few other minor features. No definite word on the price, but folks are speculationg $50,000 tag for the signature version and another $10,000 for the Ultimate package.
