2013 Hyundai Equus Gets A RefreshSunday, December 9, 2012 7:52 by Arman Barari
Hyundai revealed a revised version of the Equus luxury saloon in South Korea, featuring subtle styling changes and interior upgrades, but no change in powertrains. Hyundai Equus sits at the top of range above the Grandeur and the Genesis, and it is currently the most luxurious car Hyundai makes.
With the current generation Grandeur doing well in the market and all-new Genesis in the works, Hyundai decided the Equus only needs a slight refresh rater than a full facelift. So it gets revised LED head and taillights, a sightly different grille, and new wheels. That’s it.
Inside the cabin the steering wheel design is updated, and you get more leather now with double stitching. The digital instrument panel is tweaked, and so is the infotainment system. More significant changes include the addition of an analog clock and options like Blind Spot Detection and Heads Up Display.
The Equus still comes with Hyundai’s familiar engines, including the 3.6 liter GDi V6 and the 5.0 liter Tau V8. The revised Equus will reach global markets in 2013.
