    Spied: Back Seat of 2017 Hyundai Equus

    U Spy Inside Hyundai’s All-New 2017 Equus, Korea’s S-Class.

    By: John Halas


    Thanks to one of our South Korean readers, we’ve caught our first glimpse of the interior of Hyundai’s all-new, third generation Equus luxury sedan.

    Spotted on the streets of the Ulsan Metropolitan City, the silver-colored prototype had its business end – aka the dashboard – fully covered, but its party end – aka the rear passenger area – completely undisguised.

    As with the current car, the next, 2017 Equus will offer two different configurations for the rear. The base one seen here has a three-passenger bench that includes a retractable center armrest packed with buttons and knobs controlling the dedicated audio and heating systems.

    For jetsetters, there will be an even more lavish setup with two individual thrones featuring one or two retractable footrests separated by a center console that will include a refrigerator and a display screen – things you don’t normally associate with Hyundai, but with brands of the likes of Mercedes-Benz and up.

    Full article available at link.

    Only the seats? Even the controls look very Audi.

    And nothing to see there, the Equus looks like it has more features than the CT6. I like the design of the CT6 seats more, though.

    The CT6 has rear control capabilities more in line with the S550.

    Looks nice so far. Gonna be tough to compete with the latest Germans, but obviously this will be more of a bargain in markets like NA compared to those. It'll be interesting to compare to the CT6, and it's still amusing that Acura or Infiniti have no answer to this.

    Hyundai started copying Audi a few years ago (grill, interior, controls, etc....). No surprise they are continuing to go down that path.

    CT6 is first and foremost a drivers car... its not a traditional luxury.

    So are we saying the CT6's HVAC system isn't robust enough to reach the backseats via the front vents only or that their research shows rear vents are useful for back seat passengers? So about the K2....oh nevermind.

    Saying that only gets you so far, you still have to compete with luxury features. Anyone with a brain will listen to that, observe the competition, and tell you the truth that GM is cheaping out and building to a margin on a single model and generally reducing complexity for themselves by reducing feature content for you.

    CT6 should have more than a box-checked executive back seat. Maybe it will get one. It doesn't have one now.

    Nothing to talk about.
