Default My brother's new 2011 Hyundai Equus












My brother is a confirmed BMW and Benz nut, but the new Equus blew him away. I drove him to the dealership to pick it up, and I too was just blown away by the quality. This is one hell of a nice ride for $59K! Back in college, my best friend (of course, he was smart enough NOT to study History/Religion....he wanted to be able to get a job and afford food in the future) had a Hyundai and was it ever a piece of sh-t! Now days, the Equus, is the "in" vehicle for the country club crowd. Hyundai has come a llloooonnnnggg way in 20 years!

The other picture is his wife and her Aston Martin. My brother LOVES his toys!! I hid her face because she is a very private person.

Awesome car, it has come a long way since it first came out in 1999 as well. Did he get the 5.0L 430 hp V8?

i work for hyundai, its not worth the 50-60k IMO just get a genisis 4.6 and ur set....

thats just me tho...they are nice cars, dont get me wrong...but if i wanted a nice car and not spend 60k id get the basic gen sedan with the 4.6, which is the only option for the equus....and they only have RWD...not awd...which would rock

That's an amazing car. Hyundai has in fact come a long way. My fiance has a 2010 Sonata, its a great car.

I'm sure you know guys like my brother. They "have to have" the latest thing. A Genisis would not cut it for him.

Darn I thought I read somewhere that they would be getting a new 5.0L V8...The genesis is a nice car and its only been in the states for a few years, a lot of people still wouldn't know what it was if they saw it.
