2012 Hyundai Equus Review

Equus was envisioned as a sedan that caters  to your highest expectations for comfort and luxury. To sit comfortably reclined in its rear  passenger compartment is to experience the  full measure of luxury sedan quietness and composure. Audiophile-level audio and media features are at your command too including the ability to connect your new iPad allowing a delighted passenger to play music or enjoy any of thousands of available applications. Seek contentment and it will easily be found in Equus’ many onboard entertainment options. Up front features like advanced Navigation and Driver Information System 12 way power adjustable driver’s seat with heated cooled and drivers massage will coddle you with every turn. Impressive from the moment you push the engine start button and hear the powerful 8 cylinder engine come to life.  The acclaimed Tau V8 has 385 horsepower and dual continuously Variable Valve Timing. All Equus active safety systems have been integrated to reduce the potential for a collision. Vehicle Stability Management which combines the Electronic Stability Control Electronic Parking Brake Smart Cruise Control and seatbelt  tensioning system for audible visual and tactile collision warning keep you safe. The 2012 Hyundai Equus discover a new path.
