The Hyundai Equus was first introduced in 1999 and since then it offers great luxury to its users. Some countries recognize this fully luxury car as the Hyundai Centennial and these are Middle Eastern countries. Once the vehicle arrives on the market, it will have a hard fight because it will compete against world’s greatest vehicles including the BMW 7 Series, the Lexus LS and the Audi A8. It you are one of those buyers who are willing to spend more money and get not only a comfortable but a subtle vehicle, the 2017 Hyundai Equus is a perfect choice. We will soon check the specs of the car in detail; stay tuned because this could be the sedan you are looking for.
2017 Hyundai Equus Exterior
The company claims that the upcoming model will be a different kind of machine than the outgoing model. Most of us thought that there won’t be significant changes, but it appears that the carmaker had done a lot of job to get the 2017 model in the greatest shape and raise the design of it to a higher level. Since the vehicle wore heavy camouflage, we concluded that these are not only insignificant tweaks but great changes that will make the vehicle more aggressive and powerful. The front fascia of the car will sport an Audi-like grille which will spread from the very top of the bonnet to the lower bumper. The newly designed grille will make the car more appealing. There will also be new horizontal LED headlights. The vehicle will keep its recognizable profile. The back of the vehicle will be decorated with a pair of classy slim taillights similar to the ones we have seen on the Mercedes S-class. The wheels will be large with multiple spokes. The exhaust outlets will be integrated and they also contribute to the powerful design of the car.
As far as the interior design of the 2017 Hyundai Equus is concerned, it will be as appealing and luxurious as the exterior design of it. The upcoming model will arrive on the market equipped with great technological features that will ensure interesting, comfortable and safe ride. The newly designed cabin will definitely ensure an outstanding driving feel. As for the materials, the company will utilize steel and aluminum accents, and of course fine leather for even greater luxury. We still don’t have official information but we can expect brand-new stereo system, cruise control, new navigation system, parking cameras, rear-parking sensors, and much more. There will also be ventilated seats and heads-up display. Of course, the company will probably work hard to improve the safety aspect of the vehicle. As you can see, the level of equipment is going to be much better than in the most of vehicles in this price range.
2017 Hyundai Equus Engine
The 2017 Hyundai Equus will be powered by the good old 5.0-liter V-8 Tau drivetrain. The engine which is inherited from the outgoing model will be coupled to an 8-speed automatic gearbox which appears to be really fast and smooth in changing gears. The power will be sent to the rear axle. The 5.0-liter V-8 Tau engine will enable you to get the maximum output of 429 hp. Thanks to the excellent transmission; the vehicle is capable of accelerating from naught to 60 miles per hour in less than 6 seconds.
Release date and price
The vehicle will go on sale by the end of 2016 and estimated price for the base model is around $60.000
