Facelifted Hyundai Equus unveiled image

The South Korean based automaker Hyundai has recently pulled the wraps off the facelifted version of the Equus, in its home market.

According to the car manufacturer, subtle changes were made to its exterior design, like the removal of the chrome trim strips previously found on the front bumper and on the rear bumper, the redesigned mirrors, the updated LED taillights or the new set of wheels, which complete the exterior looks of the model. The cabin of the facelifted Hyundai Equus hasn’t been left aside either and here we can find new controls for the infotainment system, a redesigned center console, new controls for the lights and braking system, a new shifter for the automatic transmission and the square clock replacing the round one, amongst others.

The “new” Hyundai Equus has also some new convenience and safety features, such as the Heads-up Display (HID), the new full TFT LCD cluster or the Blind Sport Detection (BSD). The South Korean based automaker didn’t say anything about any upgrades to the engine lineup so our guess is that the performance of the model remains the same. The facelifted 2013 Hyundai Equus will be launched in the United States too soon and more details on it will be announced then.
