Hyundai‘s first entry into the ultra-premium sector, the 2011 Equus, will start at $58,000 in Signature trim. For an extra $6,500, buyers can upgrade to the Equus Ultimate, which is equipped fairly differently from the Signature.
The Ultimate package features a four-seater arrangement, similar to a Maybach, with reclining seats, as well as a massage function and leg support for the passenger side seat, a cooling system and an entertainment screen. Also available is a refrigerator, power headrests and vanity mirrors – all of which are for the rear seat area, which should give you a clue as to what the Equus Ultimate is really meant for.
All Equus owners will get an Apple iPad with a pre-loaded owners manual, as well as a pick-up and drop-off service for service appointments, where a dealership employee will collect and return your Equus and loan you a Genesis free of charge while your vehicle is being serviced.
