"The 2011 Hyundai Equus, which will start at $55,000 when it goes on sale in the U.S. in late summer, made its official debut on Thursday at the 2010 New York Auto Show. The Equus is the most expensive Korean vehicle to hit the U.S. market, and whether or not it will be accepted by U.S. consumers will be a critical test for Hyundai."

If they do nothing to further differentiate it from Hyundai's more mundane offerings (reputations and perceptions) then history will repeat itself. Can you say Phaeton?

Reputation? You must have missed the sentence in my link about Hyundai owners harassing their Toyota driving neighbors about their cars running out of control.

Ugh! Even without that screwball hood ornament and busy grille, it doesn't do anything for me. It all looks like a sloppy afterthought. The hood badge looks like a patch for the holes where the hood ornament was mounted and the grille looks like a poor imitation of a Pontiac's! Try again!

...is the new Sonata. I saw a new one in the parking lot at work and it is a commendable effort. Camry, you're toast!

Yeah, the new Sonata is a wonderful looking car in and out. Were the local Hyundai dealer not a swine we could have been tempted.

Hey, look--no hood ornament! Huge disappointment for all those folks looking forward to getting that classy hood ornament on the Equus!
It's almost Shakespearean... Much Ado About Nothing.
