Later this year, Hyundai will up its ante in the US car market, to include a car in the $30,000 range. If you've been following along, you'll know the car may be called the Equus, in reference to the company's Equus concept shown in 2002, and the executive car of the same name Hyundai sells to Korean salarymen and government whatwhats. Now, as The Car Connection reports, the final product will be unveiled at the New York auto show this April, ahead of a market intro later in the year. TCC says a V8 is imminent, while other sources have indicated the base engine would be the corporate 3.8-liter V6. Expect considerable luxe for the money — like wood trim, leather surfaces and seating, and tons of those safety bags that inflate on impact.
