2011 Hyundai Equus: The Quarter Window Dilemma
August 31, 2011
As you can see, our Equus has a rather odd rear quarter window. Too small to see much out of and too big to do away with, it just sits there with no good reason to exist. It's not like you need more window area either as the main rear window is quite large on its own.
So why is it there? Not sure. It could be some kind of regulatory issue, or maybe Korean businessman have a high incidence of claustrophobia. It's a marked contrast to the Rolls-Royce Phantom which purposely closes out this area to give rear passengers more privacy. I think I would prefer it that way, too.
