It seems that the Asians have a problem with size, generally speaking, especially when it comes to limousines. Hyundai is trying to solve the problem by launching the stretched version of the EQ900/G90 model, which comes with a handful of modifications that would handle the massive body style.
We might be looking here at the biggest limousine ever built, way too bigger than the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class. The luxurious sedan is now 11.6 inches longer than the German model and around 11.4-inches longer than the standard EQ900.
The new Hyundai Genesis eQ900L is basically coming with the same design lines, sporting however a beefier B-pillar and bigger rear doors. Inside the cabin, the space is more generous for all passengers, while the surrounding is tweaked with high-end leather upholstery, wood trim, piano black accents and so on.
Other features include entertainment system for the rear seats, or full-length center console which separates the adjustable rear seats.
Under the hood, the Genesis EQ900L borrows its sibling`s 5.0-liter Tau V8 engine with 425 horsepower and 383 lb-ft of torque.
In terms of pricings, the Genesis EQ900 is cheaper than the Mercedes-Maybach S600, and that despite the size and amenities inside the cabin. On the South Korean market, the model is already available from $125,000, while the German limousine can be bought from $189,350.
