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.

There are many things we love here at Autoblog, but one of the quirkiest is the mid-engined hot hatch, whether it's the Renaultsport Clio V6 or the Volkswagen GTI W12-650 concept. Unfortunately, we can never seem to get our hands on one - the former never having made the transatlantic journey and the latter remained strictly a concept. And now we've got one more to salivate over.

It's called, simply enough, the Veloster Midship concept, and Hyundai is unveiling it this week at the Busan Motor Show in South Korea. As you might have guessed, it's essentially a Veloster with the engine - a 2.0-liter Theta turbo four producing 296 horsepower - mounted behind the two seats. It's also got a lightweight aluminum suspension, a reinforced chassis and extreme aero to help that mid-mounted turbo engine do its thing.
The project was undertaken by the same team that developed the initial i20 WRC rally car, but unfortunately as Hyundai itself says in the press release below (released with the solitary image above), "The Midship is a concept only to explore possibilities for the Veloster chassis and is currently not related to any future production model." Which is a bit of a shame, but hardly a surprise.
Last week, we showed you some leaked images of the Hyundai Intrado Concept, a vehicle set for debut at next week's Geneva Motor Show. We suspect that the Intrado will act as the inspiration for the next Hyundai Tucson, known elsewhere in the world as the ix35. Now, we can bring you the first images of that car undergoing testing.

There is quite a lot of cladding on this prototype, although we can make out a set of slim headlights that are similar in shape to the Intrado. The two cars also share a similar shape in the greenhouse, although obviously the prototype wears an extra set of doors behind the B-pillar.
Don't be fooled by the heavy cladding on the rear hatch, either, as it's just there to disrupt the look of the profile. It's fairly easy to spot where the roofline starts its dive down.
Coupefying hatchbacks is all the rage in the European market these days. Its what Opel and Vauxhall did with the latest Astra, and what Renault did with the Mégane, and now Hyundai is preparing to follow a similar formula, only in a smaller form.
While the i30 is the model with which Hyundai competes with the aforementioned Astra and Mégane, to say nothing of the Volkswagen Golf and Ford Focus, it's the smaller i20 - recently introduced in five-door form - which the Korean automaker plans to give the coupe treatment.
Previewed in the teaser image above, the upcoming new i20 Coupe will enter a somewhat shrinking market for three-door superminis. Though the VW Polo, Ford Fiesta, Peugeot 208 and Opel Corsa are still available with three portals, their forms are otherwise no more coupe-like than their five-door counterparts. (Mini has tried a similar approach with its Coupe, and Citroën has forked the C3 five-door and DS3 three-door, but those are decidedly more upscale offerings.) Alongside the Seat Ibiza, Hyundai is one of the few mainstream automakers offering three-door superminis significantly distinguished from its five-door versions.
