2013 Hyundai Equus Interior

Hyundai has developed a reputation for its luxurious, yet smartly built vehicles since its founding in 1967.  The 2013 Hyundai Equus, the most recent iteration of the brand’s flagship model, continues to carry the banner and raise the bar for sophisticated efficiency.

For the uninitiated, the Hyundai Equus is a four-door luxury sedan built to rival some of the market’s best and brightest (while taking their price points out to the proverbial woodshed).  The standard Equus is equipped with a 5.8-liter V8 engine which, despite producing 429 horsepower and 376 ft-lbs. of torque, runs as quiet as a mouse.  That V8 is mated to an 8-speed shiftable automatic transmission which achieves a smooth ride without the caught-between-gears sensation often found in automatic transmissions with more than five speeds.  Hyundai backs all of its drivetrains with a 10-year, 100,000 mile warranty, and the Equus is no exception.

Anyone who has stopped in at a Phoenix Hyundai dealer to check out the Equus will likely say that the enormous list of features is where the sedan truly shines.  Although the list of features is simply too long to cover, it should suffice to say that few cars in any class or trim level can match the standard-equipped Equus – navigation, premium sound, leather seats, and so much more are carefully fitted into an unbelievably spacious interior described by Edmunds as “presidential”.

It may be the more subtle considerations, however, which make the Equus unforgettable.  To take one example, the Equus does not simply have heated seats – it has multi-level heating with power-adjustable lumbar support.  The Equus does not merely have power steering – it has electronic speed-proportional power steering with adaptive cruise control and parking sensors.

In practically every way, Hyundai’s design team has refined the driving experience down to a perfect blend of art and science and carefully packed it all within the classy lines of the Hyundai Equus.  To learn more about the innumerable ways in which the Equus will impress you, call or visit Chapman Hyundai.
