The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

8.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2012 Hyundai Equus sounds like a warning shot--not literally, of course--over the bow of Lexus and Infiniti. The 2012 Audi A8 models might still be fighting for the most prestige among flagships, but they're in the top tier from inside, thanks to their impeccable cabin, innovative cabin tech, and a lean, athletic driving feel.
