More details of the 2010 Hyundai Equus

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 29, 2010

Official photos of the Hyundai Equus flagship replacement have leaked showing a new and large luxury saloon. This happened after the vehicle was introduced this week at a South Korean press event. The new version maintains the Equus name in the local market but recent reports show that the car could also reach markets in the US.

The original Equus started production in 1998 and have received very little revision since that time. Mitsubishi, a co-developer of the Equus, sold the model in Japan as the Proudia. The current version is patterned after the Genesis Rear-Wheel-Drive platform and will come with a lineup of V6 and V8 gasoline powerplants.

There are conjectures that Hyundai will be using the success it received when it won the 2009 North American Car of the Year award to launch the Equus in the United States.

There reports coming out that Hyundai will be selling the Equus globally as the 'Genesis Prestige," where it is aime to compete with the Lexus LS and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The vital statistics of the Equus are as follows: 5,160mm long, 1,900mm wide and 1,495mm high.

The interior of the Equus looks like it has what it takes to stand up to its luxury competitions. The engine under the hood is also respectable with a 3.8-liter Lambda V6 and a 4.6-liter Tau V8.

There will eventually be a long wheelbase version that will come with a brand new 5.0-liter variant of the Tau V8. Safety features are composed of a new vehicle stability system and camera-dependent lane departure warning system. The Equus is also equipped with LED enhanced headlights and taillights together with the new pre-safe seatbelt.
