The 2016 Hyundai Equus has been officially unveiled by the car manufacturer as the model is getting ready to be offered for sale soon.
Hyundai has slightly updated the Equus for the 2016 model year as this is getting ready to arrive at dealerships across the nation. According to the car manufacturer, the 2016 Hyundai Equus has received some limited changes which include the hands-free smart trunk on the top of the line Ultimate model which can be opened when the drive stands within a few feet of its trunk for a few seconds, with the key in his pocket. This is easier to use because competitors offering a similar system require kicking a near sensor below the trunk to active the feature.
“The 2016 Equus premium luxury sedan continues to offer superior exterior and interior design, superb vehicle dynamics, material selection, driver technology displays and advanced safety features. Equus has been an impressive success story for Hyundai, bolstering its brand with consistently strong sales success and elevated customer satisfaction processes. For 2016, Equus adds the availability of Hands-free Smart Trunk with Automatic Opening to the Ultimate model, for even more luxurious convenience”, said the carmaker in the press release.
The 2016 Hyundai Equus is still taking its power from the same 5.0 liter V8 engine, which is capable of sending a total of 429 HP (319 kW) and a peak torque of 509 Nm (376 lb-ft) of torque to the wheels, through the 8-speed automatic transmission. The EPA estimated stands at 15 / 23 / 18 mpg in city / highway / combined. The 2016 Hyundai Equus has a starting price from 61,500 USD for the Signature and it can go up to 68,750 USD for the Ultimate.
