Awesome car by Stunned on 02/06/2012. Trim: 2012 Hyundai Equus Ultimate, Owned less than 1 year.
Pros: I LOVE this car. Comparing to my old S class, Hyundai has SERIOUSLY WENT ALL OUT with this entering the luxury arena. The inside is truly stunning. From the inside I forget it's a Hyundai. Good thing they didn't put that Hyundai 'H' logo on this thing. It's got power, comfort, and SERIOUS luxury. People mostly think it's a Mercedes (they always seem to know it's not an Audi, Jag, or BMW). I've had some people choose my Equus to ride in over the other guy's S class.
Cons: There are only 2 reasons I gave this car some lower (9's) ratings. 1st, the back seat is only for 4 people. Though i don't have to haul around kids, I'm still used to having space for 5. This is a bummer. Also, the 2nd is that people almost always seem to be let down when they find out it's "only" a Hyundai. They seem all excited when they ask me what kind of car it is but answer back with an "oh, I didn't think Hyundai made cars like this". But, for me, these cons are getting less and less bad as I get more and more used to the power and pure luxury of this thing. People who value image will NOT buy this. I can see others warm up to it eventually as they get more and more exposed to this.
Overall review: Overall, I would say, this FAR exceeded my expectations. I'm used to an S class but thought I'd see what I was missing by only sticking with Mercedes. I'd say I am STUNNED at the level of detail, PURE LUXURY, and the power of this thing. I almost feel like my S class is an old car now (it is a 2010) compared to my Equus. Good job Hyunday. Only 2 suggestions. Put a different brand name on this thing (like Lexus, Infinity, Acura) and make the center back seat as awesome as the 2 back side seats and you'll BLOW away Lexus and Infinity (Acura never could compete with Lexus & Infinity anyways.)
