2015 Hyundai Equus

New for 2015

The Hyundai Equus, after a refresh last year, remains largely unchanged for the 2015 model year.

Vehicle Overview

The Equus is Hyundai’s flagship full-size luxury sedan that slots in above the Genesis sedan in the automaker’s lineup.

Summary

The 2015 Hyundai Equus is powered by a 429-hp 5.0-liter V-8 that makes 376 lb-ft of torque that flows through an eight-speed automatic transmission to the rear tires. EPA-estimated fuel economy is 15/23 mpg city/highway. Befitting its luxury focus, the Equus Signature and Ultimate packages are so generous that there are no factory options. Highlights of the Signature package include three-zone climate control, a 9.2-inch infotainment screen, a proximity key, a smart cruise control that includes a full 0-mph stop-and-start function, and a “relax” button that moves the front seat forward while reclining the rear seat on the passenger side. Opt for the Ultimate package and you'll add a head-up display, cooled rear seats (standard heated and reclining), dual 9.2-inch monitors for the rear seats, a multi-view camera system, silent power-assisted soft-close doors, and a forward-view cornering camera.
The 2015 Hyundai Equus has not been crash tested by the NHTSA, but in 2014 IIHS testing received four ratings of good (the highest possible rating is good).

What We Think

We’ve called the Hyundai Equus a budget luxury car, and that remains true. Hyundai gets quite a few details right, from the premium service experience on the dealership level to the car itself. The closest competitor to the Equus is the Lexus LS, which is several thousand dollars more. What does the Lexus LS, Mercedes Benz S-Class, and BMW 7 Series have that the Equus doesn’t have? A respected reputation of luxury is one thing, but the quantifiable things we identified on the 2012 model included an insufficiently damped suspension that can get harsh over particularly rough roads, material quality is a step down from the vehicles it is trying to emulate, and the styling is rather anonymous.
That being said, the Equus is quite a nice place to spend time, as it does a good job of wrapping passengers in comfort. Driving is smooth and quiet, isolating the inhabitants from the noise of the world outside. The head-up display also helpfully projects information (like speed, navigation, blind spot alerts, etc.) onto the windshield.
