The South Korean based automaker Hyundai has recently unveiled the 2014 Equus during the 2013 New York Auto Show, in a premiere.
Hyundai’s flagship sedan has received a makeover which includes almost every area, starting with its chassis, going through the interior and exterior and ending with its technology. The 2014 Hyundai Equus is now coming with a new front fascia, with LED fog lamps as standard, thinner front grille bars and 19-inch turbine-style wheels with polished silver finish, amongst others. The model’s cabin has received a redesigned instrument panel and center stack, a refreshed steering wheel with new buttons, a new consol layout for the rear passengers with 9.2-inch seatback video screens and some other tweaks.
The suspension system of the 2014 Hyundai Equus has been improved too, along with its handling. Power to the model is being provided by a 5.0 liter Tau V8 engine, which is producing a total output of 429 HP, the same as a Mercedes-Benz S550, with a peak torque of 376 lb-ft. The unit is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission which is sending power to the rear wheels in standard. Fuel economy is expected to stand at 15 / 23 mpg in city / highway. Additional details on the model will be announced close to its launch.
