The Hyundai Equus is definitely worth a look for buyers who appreciate lavish luxury and a good deal.
What's New for 2016
The only change of note is the addition of the hands-free smart trunk with automatic opening to the Equus Ultimate.
Choosing your Hyundai Equus
Hyundai designed the Equus to compete with the likes of BMW, Mercedes and Audi, and this means that it is well-equipped from top to bottom.
Under its hood sits a 5-liter V8 engine that puts out 429 horsepower and 376 pound-feet of torque. This engine mates to an eight-speed automatic transmission that sends power to the rear wheels. There are no optional engines or transmissions available. Standard equipment includes features like a 7-inch LCD center cluster display, 19-inch wheels, and plenty of chrome accents to go around.
Because it competes in a segment that focuses more on luxury than of budget, the Equus comes in only two well-equipped trim levels.
Even though it's substantially more expensive than the Signature, the Ultimate is substantially more luxurious and still much less expensive than the Equus's competition.
