  • Equus Throwback

    Thus far, Equus Automotive is best known for the Bass 770, a 1960s Ford Mustang lookalike with scads of power and modern amenities. Now, the Troy, Michigan, firm has revealed its second project and it's one big homage to the Chevrolet Corvette, appropriately called the Throwback. The Equus Throwback was designed to encompass the ultimate Corvette with multiple nods to previous generations. The shape of the Throwback is undoubtedly a combination of the C7- and C3-generations, but other elements are there. For instance, the split rear window design recalls the C2-generation Corvette, and the...

    2014 Hyundai Equus: Upping The Ante Against The Luxury Establishment

    When Hyundai first revealed its Equus several years ago, adding a model to compete with the likes of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, Lexus LS, or Jaguar XJ, among others, seemed downright outlandish. But what was seen as far-fetched then is now seeming quite smart. Now for 2014, as previewed at the 2013...

    Moving from a very budget image to a premium image isn't easy in any business, perhaps especially in the car business, where product development cycles limit the pace of advancement. But despite the challenges, Hyundai has risen to surprising heights over the past decade, thanks to its Genesis sedan, and, more recently, the Equus. Due for an update for the 2014 model year, the refreshed Equus will be on display at the 2013 New York Auto Show next week.

  • 2011 Hyundai Equus

    We're so used to seeing carmakers taking leaps forward in in-car technology and mobile innovations that it comes as a shock when progress takes a step back. When the 2011 Hyundai Equus luxury car was launched it gained high praise from all quarters for offering huge levels of equipment at a price to shame the established luxury marques. It shamed them for innovation too, with the traditional paper owner's manual ditched in favour of an Apple iPad loaded with an electronic owner's manual. Far from being a gimmick the manual allowed you to schedule service visits, make dinner reservations and...

  • 2011 Hyundai Equus

    A Korean full-size luxury sedan? That's what most people ask themselves when they first hear of the 2011 Hyundai Equus.

Like the Cadillac CTS-V Coupe and Wagon, the Equus earns its place on our list of Best Car To Buy nominees in part through sheer value. Priced $20,000-$50,000 below its segment competitors, the...
