2011 Hyundai Equus Signature: Power Trunk Closer, Absent
March 17, 2011
Our long-term $58K 2011 Hyundai Equus Signature doesn't have a one-touch power trunk closer. To get that feature, you have to spring for the $64,500 Equus Ultimate, where it's standard.
I was originally going to carp about how a one-touch power trunk closer should be standard on the lower level Signature. But a little research revealed that for the Equus target vehicle, the Lexus LS460, you need to pony up for the long-wheelbase L model to get it standard. It's optional on the short-wheelbase LS models.
Hmmmmm. It seems like Hyundai benchmarked its competitor's specs too well.
In any event, for those who think one should use his own biceps to close the trunk: we're talking luxury cars here, not some used Ford 500 purchased off the rental car lot.
