2011 Hyundai Equus Signature: Afterthought
September 30, 2011
Driving the Equus a few nights ago, I felt this plastic tab behind the wheel. Whoa - the Equus has paddles? It doesn't. Nothing happened when I pulled on it. Until I wandered to the edge of my lane and the beeping started. The icon and the acronym took a few seconds to sink in.
Then I just wanted to know why Hyundai buried this fairly glossy, luxo feature on its steering wheel, activated with a little neglected appendage hanging out the back. Sad little warning system. Maybe next gen you will be promoted to the front of the tiller with the cruise and audio controls. If you show enough ambition, maybe you'll get a spot inside the multimedia info roster.
