Hyundai Equus will go on sale end of this summer in U.S. with prices starting in the mid $50,000 range. This new luxury sedan is designed to compete mainly with Lexus LS 460 and Mercedes S550.
The Equus offers little more power and better fuel economy than Lexus LS 460 and Mercedes-Benz S550. Size wise these three cars are almost identical. The Equus also has plenty of safety features and luxury amenities to satisfy even the most demanding customers.
There’s no doubt that Equus is an impressive luxury sedan for that price(for comparison S550 costs around $92,000).
But what if Hyundai offered Coupe version of the Equus? The Equus Coupe would comfortably seat 4 exec’s and fit all their golf bags in the trunk. With RWD and close to 400 hp it would be a good alternative to the Mercedes CL-Class (S-Class Coupe from 2011).
Will we ever see a full size luxury coupe from Hyundai? Very likely no, but it is always fun to speculate such things. Renderings below are by our good friend Theophilus Chin.
