2011 Hyundai Equus Signature: A Good Guess

October 04, 2011

True story: It's always fun to play stump the neighbors with long-term cars, especially the Equus. I'd just exited the Winged Stallion when a couple of the ladies who live in my complex pulled up to park. "Oh wow! Nice car," one said. "Your wife must love all these cars you bring home."

Not really, I explained. Unless it's of the super-functional (minivan) or super-cute (Mini) variety, they're all pretty invisible to her. Even the cush-lux Equus.

"So what car is that anyway," one of them asked, staring at the hood badge.

"Give you a couple guesses," I said.

"A Bentley," one offered.

And just then I thought I could hear someone, somewhere within the Hyundai enterprise - probably in the ad agency or PR department - peeing themselves with glee. Because that's the perception they're all working towards, right?
