2011 Hyundai Equus: Don't Bother Calling Shotgun
March 14, 2011
It's simply not worth it in the Equus. In addition to its ample legroom, the armrest in the back seat features this extensive array of auxiliary controls. And this is without the optional rear seat luxury package that comes on the "Ultimate" edition.
Not only can you endlessly annoy the person sitting shotgun by moving their seat around, you can fire up your own seat heaters, raise the rear sunshade (there are side window shades as well) and adjust the radio station and volume. Even if you don't feel the need to play with the gadgets, the seats themselves are comfortable enough to fall asleep in.
Such an elaborate and comfortable rear seat setup used to be reserved for the long-wheelbase versions of the big German sedans. Not a bad package to find in a $59,000 sedan.
