Future Cars

2009 Hyundai Equus

A large, luxurious rear-wheel-drive sedan available with either V-6 or V-8 power arriving in 2008. An Audi MMI-like system for the car’s electronics is under consideration, as is a base price of less than $30,000. This car will be the successor to a Korean model called the Equus, although Hyundai may opt to use a different name for the U.S. market. We really hope it does, because otherwise those of us who have read Peter Shaffer’s play of the same name, about a horse-obsessed boy who pokes out their eyes, would be terrified of this thing.
