2011 Hyundai Equus Ultimate Sedan 4-door 4.6l on 2040-cars
of the Equus indicates Hyundai
York, South Carolina, United States
Hyundai is aiming for the premium luxury market with 2011's Equus. It's a brand-new sedan and a brand-new segment for Hyundai. The Equus is a V8-powered large sedan akin to BMW's 7-series and Lexus LS. The Equus is powered by a 385-horsepower V8 connected to a 6-speed automatic transmission. The rear-wheel drive car uses adaptive air suspension to provide a soft, comfortable ride that automatically adapts to road conditions. The Equus also offers a "Sport" mode which tightens the suspension response and remaps transmission shift points and shift speed.The exterior of the Equus indicates Hyundai's lofty aspirations. Styling cues from both the Mercedes S-Class and Lexus LS are evident, as are smooth, understated lines and a prominent grille. One thing that's not prominent is the Hyundai logo--the company may still be trying to shake their economy-car image. Standard 19-inch wheels come shod with low-profile 40-series tires. HID headlamps are standard and come with LED turn signals and fog lamps. Inside, Hyundai hit all of the luxury car bullet points. An audiophile surround audio system by Lexicon has an astounding 17 speakers and iPod input. Navigation and Bluetooth are also standard equipment. The driver's seat is 12-way power-adjustable and both front seats are heated and cooled. The driver can even enjoy a standard integrated massage system. The interior is clad completely in leather, including the dash. There's wood on the dash as well, and the headliner is made of Alcantara suede."Smart" cruise control and proximity-based keyless entry are included as are power sunshades and a front and rear park-assist system with rearview camera. The Equus also comes with a tire pressure monitor and a lane-departure system too.Safety equipment is a necessary component within the luxury segment, and the Equus doesn't disappoint. Electronic stability control and traction control are included as are an automatic vehicle stability system and anti-lock brakes. Airbags are standard, of course, and include the usual front-impact but also include side-curtains, seat-mounted side-impact and there's one for the driver's knees as well. Step up to the Ultimate trim, and it includes a rear-seat entertainment system, impressive rear seats that power-recline, are heated and cooled and massage the legs and back of the occupants. A forward-facing cornering camera is included, as is a power trunk lid and a refrigerated rear console.There are no factory options available, but it's hard to imagine what else a potential buyer might want to equip the Equus with--it's an amazing luxury value and a very-well equipped entry in the full-size luxury sedan segment for Hyundai.

As is usually the case with most Hyundai models, we're getting a sneak peek into the future by way of the company's Korean market lineup. Hyundai released images of the 2014 Avante on its home-market Facebook page, showing us what the updated 2014 Elantra will look like when it arrives this fall.

With the fifth-gen Elantra just three years old at this point, all of the changes will be relatively minor. Judging by the pictures of the Avante, updates to the exterior include new front and rear fascias, new headlights with LED running lights, LED taillights and new wheel options. The interior also gets some visual changes, mainly to the buttons and controls. Hyundai is also adding more comfort inside its compact sedan by adding a ventilated driver's seat, heated steering wheel and rear HVAC vents.
Hyundai is recalling 58,000 Elantra Touring wagons, after it was discovered that a metal support bracket in the headliner could become dislodged when the side-curtain airbag deploys. If this happens, occupants could suffer lacerations.

The affected models were built between December 15, 2009 and May 7, 2012 and cover model years 2010 to 2012. The problem itself was discovered in the follow-up into a 2013 recall of the Elantra Sedan, when a Touring model was found in a salvage yard with a detached headliner, despite using a different type of support than was recalled in the four-door model. No injuries have been associated with this recall.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration bulletin, the remedy for this recall is not unlike that used with the Elantra Sedan - adhesive strips will be applied to the headliner to prevent it from dislodging in the event of a crash.
BMW and Hyundai may be joining the rush for the border that has already seen Nissan, Honda and Mazda begin factory construction in Mexico, while Ford and General Motors have both made significant investments in their Mexican facilities. BMW's interest in Mexico has been apparent for some time, and while we'd heard grumblings about Hyundai's move into Latin America some time ago, the last we heard about it was in 2009.
This new move, reported by Bloomberg, doesn't get specific on which models will be produced south of the Rio Grande, and as neither automakers' spokespeople responded to the business site's request for statements, all we really have to go on are the statements of Mexico's Economy Minister, Ildefonso Guajardo: "I cannot talk for them, but I think that starting 2014 we'll have new announcements. At least for one." Which manufacturer that will be remains anyone's guess, although judging by all the recent scuttlebutt that's been going around, the smart money seems to be on BMW. We'll stay with this one.
