Hyundai has engineered a fresh new look in the luxury
Equus has been engineered for performance from the ground up. 19-inch chrome alloy wheels with staggered-width performance tires (P245/45R19 in front and P275/40R19 in the rear) not only give the Equus a formidable look, but ensure superior handling.
Advanced HID Xenon Headlights
Stylish LED turn-signal indicators frame the front Xenon High Intensity Discharge (HID) headlights. The Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFLS) turns with the vehicle’s steering angle so that upcoming curves and intersections receive maximum illumination. The sophisticated auto-leveling headlights also keep light parallel to the road surface regardless of vehicle load. The result is that the driver enjoys maximum illumination and light coverage at all times.
Equus has full-body integrated chrome accents to highlight the exterior. A strong horizontal grille and 19-inch chrome alloy wheels set the tone, while chrome insert moldings on the bumpers and door handles complement the exterior design. A chrome lower bodyside accent and fascia-integrated dual asymmetrical chrome exhaust tips finish off this exceptional look.
Premium wood trim. Snug leather seats with driver’s circulation massage, heating, cooling and humidity control. An 8-inch LCD for the premium navigation and Driver Information System. And a 608-watt Lexicon® 7.1 Discrete Surround Sound Audio System with more standard speakers than the BMW 7 Series or the Lexus LS 460.
The test-drive starts at your house. The service center comes to you. And the owner’s manual is available as an Apple iPad™ app. Hyundai’s ‘At Your Service,’ is an entirely new kind of luxury service, for an entirely new kind of luxury car.
An award-winning 429-hp, 5.0L GDI V8 engine is paired with a premium 8-speed automatic transmission. And of course, rear-wheel drive. Engineered to leave its mark on the luxury performance sedan market.
8-speed Automatic Transmission
Hyundai engineers designed this high-performance transmission specifically for Equus. Precise gear ratios and lightweight components make it highly responsive and a perfect complement to the Tau 429-hp V8. Whether in automatic or SHIFTRONIC® manual shift mode, it also has the capability to achieve torque converter lock-up above fist gear which dramatically closes the fuel-efficiency gap between automatic and manual transmissions
The very nature of rear-wheel drive shifts the Equus closer to a more ideal 50/50 front-to-rear weight distribution. This means the engine, transmission, driveshaft and rear differential provide better dynamic balance. The larger rear tires and springs take on their fair share of the workload, offering a smoother, more stable ride, with greater maximum stopping power and enhanced handling and traction under hard acceleration.
Nine airbags. A Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system that includes Electronic Stability Control (ESC) and a Lane Departure Warning System (LDWS), plus some of the best-known acronyms in the automotive safety business. Safety isn’t a luxury, it’s a necessity
