2013 Hyundai Equus
2013 Hyundai Equus

New For 2013

Not much, partly because the car got a new engine and transmission for 2012. Shoppers for the 2013 season will find two new paint colors—white satin (paired with saddle upholstery) and gran premio gray (which replaces a hue called granite gray).


The Hyundai Equus targets the Mercedes-Benz S550 and the Lexus LS460. Hyundai’s luxury boat, launched for 2011, is going after some of the biggest, swankiest, priciest sedans in the land. The rear-wheel-drive, V-8-powered Equus is based on the same bones as the Genesis, which is a size smaller and some $15,000 less expensive. All that cash here buys standard features such as navigation, Bluetooth, SiriusXM satellite radio, electronically controlled air springs, swiveling HID headlamps, a rearview camera, a seventeen-speaker stereo, a massaging driver’s seat, heated and cooled front seats, leather upholstery, a sunroof, lane-departure warning, and smart cruise control (phew!). Stepping up to the four-passenger Ultimate brings ventilated, massaging, and reclining rear seats with footrests; a DVD entertainment system; and a fridge for the rear quarters. The Equus doesn’t come close to matching the driving dynamics—or the prestige and styling—of its German rivals, but it’s thousands of dollars cheaper and offers a luxurious driving experience and a better warranty. All-wheel drive is absent, a shame given the Hyundai’s recent injection of horsepower. Subjectively, the Equus doesn’t feel quite up to spec with the usual suspects from Germany, but it compares favorably with the Lexus LS and easily overshadows the hoary Acura RL.


Front, side, side curtain, and a driver’s knee air bag; ABS; traction and stability control with a radar-based precollision warning system; lane-departure warning; electronic brake-force distribution; and tire-pressure monitors are standard.

2014 Hyundai Equus Side
For discerning luxury customers who want something different that the usual mainstream blue-chip brands, Hyundai has offered the Equus sedan since 2010. Now, at the 2013 New York auto show, the Korean automaker has taken the wraps off of the updated 2014 Equus, which features a raft of cosmetic and technological updates.
Hyundai Centennial Sedan Rear Side View
The Hyundai Equus is known as the Centennial in other markets, and in three official videos, the automaker previews the refreshed luxury sedan in detail. In advance of the 2014 Hyundai Equus' debut at the New York auto show, these videos give us a much better idea of what to expect.
2014 Hyundai Equus Teaser Brightened
Hyundai has just teased its updated 2014 Equus, which will debut at the 2013 New York auto show later this month. All we can see in the image is a shadowy outline of a car very similar to the current Equus, but Hyundai assures us that the new model is “significantly enhanced,” with new interior and exterior elements among other changes.
