2011 Hyundai Equus: Chauffeur-Driven
April 18, 2011
Friday night my nephew and a friend were in town. I told them I'd pick them up after work. Now, because I work at Edmunds, I'm the cool aunt. So, I got the following text:
You wouldn't happen to be driving an R8 or GT-R would you?
No, Hyundai Equus.
So, I guess the Equus is cool with the kids. Well, they're not actually kids; they are in their early 20s. But they enjoyed playing with the controls in the back seat while I chauffeured them around L.A. They remarked on the car's comfortable, high-quality interior. They wanted to know what it could do on the highway, what kind of power it had. And they mentioned that they'd never seen another on the road or at their workplaces. One works at a casino and the other in finance.
It's taking the Hyundai Equus some time to catch on with the luxury crowd. Have you seen any on the road?
