2011 Hyundai Equus: Impressive

September 27, 2011

Thankfully I was given the keys to our Equus recently when I had friends and family in town. My first guest to get into the Equus was my friend Brian. My wife and I picked him up from the airport.

My friend is a tall dude, 6'3". My wife offered him the front seat, but he knows she gets car sick quick. He politely declined and got into the back seat. "Niiiiiiiice, Scott." he exclaimed as he closed the rear door. "You know that I can only have the best."

My wife started to move her seat forward, but my friend quickly begged her to stop. He had enough leg room. My wife is not short by the way. She's 5'10". My friend had plenty of room to stretch out and relax after being crammed up in coach for the past four hours. Score one for the Equus.

Later that weekend, my sister and family showed up. While my family is not as tall as my friend Brian, the Equus still was able to deliver. For my family, specifically my two nieces, it was the draw shades. On a drive back to my house after a long day out they were able to pull the shades and take a comfortable nap in the back seat. Score another point for the Equus.

Normally I'm not into the large luxo-boats, but I loved the Equus and what it was able to do for me and my family. I'll sound like a broken record, but I think people just have to get over the idea that it's a Hyundai. It's hard to dismiss the value you get out of the Equus.
