Comfort- and luxury-minded shoppers will find that for the same money, the 2011 Hyundai Equus will get them the space and equipment of a higher, more prestigious luxury class.

The Equus is truly an outstanding luxury car and an incredible value. The Equus badge may not have the same cache as a 3-pointed star, or blue and white propeller, but it’s filled with luxury and comfort.

The Hyundai Equus remains an impressive full-size sedan with plenty of performance, features, and luxury. And its starting price massively undercuts the competition.

The Equus is offered with a single powertrain, and it’s impressively strong. This grandly proportioned sedan mimics the dimensions and the features of established high-zoot rides. And it does so for thousands less.

For making owners of European and Japanese luxury sedans feel foolish, the 5.0-liter Equus is the ultimate embarrassment tool. It has a look all its own and delivers a composed, compliant ride befitting a top-tier luxury sedan.

In an Equus, you’re truly riding in luxury. The fact that you didn’t take out a second mortgage to buy it, makes it that much more enjoyable. Rarely do $60K cars feel like a deal, but once you sit inside it, you feel as if you almost cheated the dealer.

It’s easy to be skeptical about a $60,000 Hyundai. But when the Equus is there in the metal, and you drive it, the skepticism rings hollow. You begin to think that there really is a place for a car like this.

There’s absolutely nothing in the new car market that matches the Equus on the amenities front for a similar price-point. The Equus isn’t just the ultimate Hyundai – it’s the ultimate four-wheeled value proposition.

The Hyundai Equus is a great car for buyers who thought they could never afford a car of its ilk. The company has added high quality, progressive styling and improved mileage and crash tests to its trademark value and generous warranty.

If you buy an Equus, don’t expect quite the same attention to detail that Lexus offers, but your payments will be smaller and the experience will be remarkably similar. A $10,000 price disparity might just make some buyers forget about refinement.
