Propelled by a 796% year-over-year improvement from the BMW 7-Series, which was transitioning into a new generation at this time last year, the segment gained a few hundred sales. Maserati Quattroporte sales grew as well, while BMW’s 6-Series, a less direct competitor for big sedans in this segment, added 11 units. Hyundai also began selling the flagship of its new luxury brand, the Genesis G90.

Although we linked the Hyundai Equus with midsize luxury cars on pricing and status grounds, the second-generation Equus, aka the Genesis G90, operates out of a fully premium lineup with a price tag nearly as lofty as the Lexus LS and Jaguar XJ.
10 G90s were sold at the tail end of September 2016. Hyundai averaged roughly 300 Equus sales per month between 2011 and 2014.
