2011 Hyundai Equus: Face Time

September 19, 2011

I tend to think of the Equus as having a very conservative look -- you know, like a Lexus LS. And from most angles, this is true.

But I caught sight of it head-on over the weekend, and for the first time, I really soaked up all the details. When viewed from that perspective, it's not as conservative as I'd imagined.

From me, there's a lot more visual excitement there than you'll find in the mug of the LS, shown below. But I can certainly see where some might find the Hyundai's front view to be something close to garish. Chrome plus LED lights can elicit that response in people.

What say you, regarding the Hyundai's mug -- exciting or garish? And which do you prefer from the front -- Hyundai or Lexus?
