2010-hyundai-equus 5

Long known for creating affordable commuter workhorses with little to no real wow factor, Hyundai has slowly slipped its way onto our elegance radar with more refined vehicles like the Genesis. It continues its coming-of-age journey with the confirmation that it will bring the flagship Equus sedan over to the United States for late 2010. Launched this year in Korea, the Equus is miles apart from Hyundais of old and looks more at home amongst classmates named Mercedes and Lexus. The United States name for the car, pricing and packaging information, and specifications didn’t accompany the announcement and will be available closer to the official launch. [via World Car Fans]
