Ask the local dealer.

What a great way to waste $25K.




About the amount it will lose as soon as you drive it off the lot.

Actually I wouldn't bank on that. The Genesis is holding its value very well so I would expect the Equus to do the same.

At any rate, talk to your dealer and see if you can get on a waiting list. I read they'll be offering a 4-passenger version with a full console in the rear. Haven't seen a picture but I bet it's sweet.

Looks like a great value but what is it offering over the Genesis? BTW, the tau v8 in the Hyundai range got a horsepower boost

I bought used a couple times... money down the hole after several months... rather have a working overpaid car than a car that won't work anymore and the money is gone...

The tau v8 is 385 hp (10hp bump) and I believe they are coming out with a supercharged version 460hp

Um, no it's not. You can buy them a year old for next to nothing around here, maint because they aren't exactly lighting the world on fire with sales.

The Equus will end up being another Phaeton.

The customers who are in the market to purchase a near $60K vehicle are NOT going to be looking at Hyundai as their first choice. My mother drives an LS460 and I doubt she would ever consider even getting a Hyundai for a few thousand less than a Lexus.

Hyundai was on the right path with the Genesis...showing that they can make a luxury car that can compete with a $50K sedan for $20K less. HOWEVER...when you are talking about Hyundai producing a $60K sedan that competes with vehicles in the same price range...you have a recipe for disaster. Wealthy folks buy an S-Class because it's the flagship car for Mercedes and are willing to shell out the bucks to show others they have "made it". Hyundai doesn't have the brand recognition of Mercedes/BMW/Lexus to convince buyers to pay $60K for a vehicle with little brand respect.
