What's New

The updated 2014 Hyundai Equus features enhancements in both design elements, technology, and safety features. Taking a look inside the vehicle, the instrument panel has been completely redesigned, as well as the center console and shift lever design. Now, the interior features ivory leather with ultra-premium genuine wood trim selections. New safety features include a multi-view camera system, standard Blind Spot Detection, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert. Combined with the exterior makeover that includes a new front bumper fascia and grille design, 19-inch turbine-blade polished silver wheels, the new 2014 Hyundai Equus stands out.

Who It's For

As one of Hyundai's success stories, the Equus continues to outsell what Hyundai says are its main competitors, including the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, BMW 7 Series, and the Audi A8, among others. Positioned as a premium luxury sedan, the 2014 Hyundai Equus delivers performance, safety, and comfort at a decent price. With many standard features that would be optional for other brands, Hyundai enables its buyers to get the best technology in their cars, helping to keep costs down and making their vehicles more attractive.

Key Features

Along with the array of premium standard features, the Hyundai Equus showcases a few that make you take a double look:
  • 5.0-liter Tau DOHC V8 engine
  • 3-year complimentary standard Assurance Connected Care
  • Three driving modes: Normal , Sport, and Snow

What We Think

With the complete redesign and styling of the 2014 Hyundai Equus, as well as the addition of the new engine and updated infotainment system, the vehicle delivers. Buyers don't have to choose between comfort, technology, and safety as the new Equus combines all three features. The new design draws attention, and when reading over the list of standard safety features, buyers with a family can feel safe about their decision to purchase the vehicle.
