Hyundai Equus details:

Equus takes Hyundai's formula for intelligent luxury to a new level, explained John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motor America. We've applied the lessons in engineering excellence we've learned with Genesis to the Hyundai Equus, while adding a new level of buyer experience that will further differentiate our take on luxury from the conventional luxury brands.

Hyundai Equus broadens Hyundai's lineup of luxury cars and like Genesis, is built on Hyundai's world-class rear-wheel-drive architecture. It is powered by the proven 4. 6-liter Tau V8. The Tau inside the Hyundai Equus will produce an estimated 385 horsepower using luxury fuel and 378 horsepower using regular fuel. With technology rivaling more expensive luxury sedans, Hyundai Equus showcases features such as a lane departure warning system, electronic air suspension, smart cruise control and a Lexicon stereo system.

When Genesis was presented, Hyundai promised that its rear-wheel-drive architecture would spawn more offers in other segments. Hyundai Equus is the third of those offers, this time riding on a lengthened Genesis architecture. Hyundai Equus is 7. 2 inches longer (203. 1 inches vs. 195. 9 inches) than Genesis. Hyundai Equus boasts an impressive 52/48 front-to-rear weight distribution for exceptional handling and more refined steering characteristics.
