2010 for the company 2018-2019 Hyundai was marked by a large number of premieres.
With fully confirms its name, which translates from Korean as “up with the times.”
And among these premieres, the most striking and status is the 2018-2019 Hyundai Equus second generation.
The Korean company was born in 1968-th year.
Since its inception, 2018-2019 Hyundai Motors Company was able to become a leader at home in Korea and reached the seventh position in the production of cars in the world, ahead of many nice brands.
Also, several attempts to conquer the premium segment was made.
One of these applications can be called luxury luxury sedan 2018-2019 Hyundai Equus.
The first generation of this car Koreans released back in 1999-th year.
He, however, was unable to compete in this market segment models recognized brands.
But ten years have not passed for the company in the blank, and the second generation of 2018-2019 Hyundai Equus was released in 2010-th year.
The main differences of the new model are the greatest length of the wheelbase in the class, relatively low cost, a complete set “all inclusive” and an unexpected bonus in the form of household leather slippers.
The latter, according to the Korean engineers can serve as an additional incentive to buy a car, which cost more than 100 thousand USD
That is the logic of the people – a person buys a car because of slippers!
This original present not offered by any competitor.
East, as they say, is a delicate matter.
Updated Equus copied many different elements, both interior and exterior, with popular models of iconic brands, with which he, in fact, trying to compete.
And there seems to have gone the same way as in the case with the previous generation model.
The front optics, and in general – the whole front part of the 2018-2019 Hyundai Equus, is similar to the Lexus LS and the Mercedes the S-class .
The aft part of the saloon and originality does not shine, repeating some of the same parts, and Lexus LS Honda Legend.
Inside, 2018-2019 Hyundai Equus Korean experts, it seems, is also not disdained plagiarism, using, for example, the drive key seat of the Mercedes, and DIS interface (proprietary multimedia system) of iDrive BMW system.
Salon trimmed with pretensions to luxury, where the designers have gone on well-trodden road.
After all, in a segment dominated by the classical style, it is difficult to invent something original and radically new.
The second generation Equus is created on the model of the 2018-2019 Hyundai the Genesis , implying a similar driving characteristics.
But in reality it turned out to be worse.
This is facilitated by “inhibited” steering reaction, a high enough level of suspension comfort in the 2018-2019 Hyundai Equus (that just is not typical in this class) and uneven acceleration at high speeds.
The reasons for this are likely to lie in the increased wheelbase 2018-2019 Hyundai Equus and large mass.
