Special features for 2016
The Equus is Hyundai's luxury flagship, aimed directly at the top models from other luxury brands, including the Lexus LS and Jaguar XJ, but costing thousands less. The V8 in the Equus, which makes 429 horsepower, is Hyundai's most powerful engine ever -- and more powerful than the engines in the Lexus LS 460 and Mercedes-Benz S550. The Equus' 8-speed automatic transmission enhances performance while still managing to return an EPA-estimated 24 mpg highway. There are yet other reasons why the Equus stands out from the luxury pack. According to Hyundai, the Equus has more leg, head, and shoulder room, both in front and in back, than the Lexus LS 460. It's also a standout for safety features, and an IIHS Top Safety Pick.
The Hyundai Equus is a full-sized luxury sedan that seats five and comes in two trim levels. The base model offers 19” premium alloy wheels, air suspension, automated bi-xenon headlamps, LED foglamps, de-icing windshield wipers (automated), powered and heated side mirrors, powered sunroof, parking camera, front and rear parking sensors remote entry/start, triple-zone climate control, heated and powered front seating, tilt and telescope steering wheel (powered), powered sunshades in the rear, collision mitigation system, GPS, 9.2” touchscreen, Bluetooth/iPod/USB integration, and 17-speaker Lexicon sound system with HD radio. Upgrades can add features like a powered rear trunk lid, parking cameras, side window sunshades, powered rear seating, rear seat entertainment center and more. Under the hood is a 5.0-liter V8 engine that gets 429 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque.
