2010 Hyundai Equus unveiled in Korea

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

A replacement of the Equus flagship has been developed by Hyundai in the form of a new large luxury saloon, images of which have been leaked after its launch in South Korea lately.

Although the new car keeps the Equus brand name there is word that it will reach US markets too. The preceding Hyundai Equus initially began production in 1998 and have almost been unchanged since that time.

It was developed in partnership with Mitsubishi, which sold it in Japan as the Proudia. The most current model is derived from the Genesis rear-wheel-drive platform and is offered with a lineup of V6 and V8 gasoline powerplants.

There are growing speculations that the Equus will be sold in the US following the carmaker's winning of the 2009 North American Car of the Year award for its Genesis Sedan.

There are reports circulating that Hyundai will be selling the Equus in global markets as the 'Genesis Prestige,' where it could rival cars such as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and Lexus LS. The car comes in with a large footprint: 5.160 meters long, 1.9 meters wide and 1.495 meters high.

The engine lineup is also impressive, with the Equus opening with the 3.8-liter Lambda V6 and a 4.6-liter Tau V8.

The Equus comes with advanced safety features like a new vehicle stability system and lane departure warning system equipped with a camera, the anticipatory pre-safe seatbelt technology and LED improved head and tail lights.
