2011 Hyundai Equus: The New Face of Luxury?

February 23, 2011

Nothing says old luxury like a big ol' Bentley/Rolls convertible. So I couldn't help park the Equus right next to it. Does it look anywhere near as stately or refined? Not really, but I would much rather drive the Equus than the Azure.

I've driven Bentley convertibles like this one and they're not exactly what you would call precise. Vague and barge-like is a more appropriate description. The Equus on the other hand is pretty maneuverable for its size. It can be a little too soft at times, but if you don't like the extra softness the "Sport" button gets rid of it pretty effectively. I'll admit to leaving off a few times and just enjoying the ride though.

Now would I rather have the Equus or the new, more modern Bentley Mulsanne? That's a different story entirely.
