The Equus exterior conveys a premium-sport design message, with a 19-inch turbine-blade alloy wheel design in a polished silver finish that relays motion whether parked or on the open highway. The front grille chrome bars are thin, with sharp contrast to the blacked-out portions of the grille for a sporty look, while the front fascia offers a modern premium appearance that includes lower fascia opening strakes. The headlamps offer jeweled design elements and include chrome contrasted with black-out finishes for a distinctive appearance and LED fog lamps are standard. Side mirrors offer enhanced aerodynamics and tail lamp graphics for a horizontal theme.
All Equus driver-interface displays are generous, with a large, 7-inch Thin-film Transistor (TFT) LCD center cluster display for Signature models, a 12.3-inch, fully-digital TFT LCD center cluster display for Ultimate models, and a standard 9.2-inch center instrument panel LCD display. Dual high-resolution 9.2-inch rear seat entertainment monitors are available to rear passengers in the Ultimate model. All of Equus’ displays are large and legible, featuring premium-quality, high-resolution graphics. The Ultimate model’s large, fully-digital LCD display offers various driver menus that can be accessed directly via steering wheel haptic dial control, helping to keep the driver’s hands on the wheel for minimal driving distraction.
The climate control system offers three distinct cabin temperature zones for driver, passenger, and rear passengers. The standard smart cruise control system includes a full 0-mph stop-and-start function. The smart proximity key includes both key-fob and card-key types of vehicle entry for driver convenience. Ultimate models feature an automatic power door closure assist function; once a door manually approaches full closure, a power function slowly and quietly ensures the door is fully secured for peace of mind. Also on the Ultimate model, both rear outboard passengers have power lumbar support.
The 2016 Equus is powered by Hyundai’s 5.0-liter Tau DOHC V8 engine, producing 429 horsepower at 6,400 rpm and 376 lb.-ft. of torque at 5,000 rpm, with a higher specific output (85.8 hp/liter) than its normally-aspirated premium luxury competitors. The Tau V8 engine creates this high output level while retaining exceptionally smooth power delivery throughout its rpm range, without the turbo lag and surge exhibited by some forced-induction engines.
The 5.0-liter Tau also features direct injection technology. This high-pressure direct injection system (over 2,200 psi) dramatically increases power and torque, while reducing fuel consumption and emissions. The 5.0-liter Tau has a high 11.5:1 compression ratio for greater thermal efficiency and output. It also has a bed plate for improved block rigidity and lower NVH, as well as camshaft carriers and a roller timing chain to improve valvetrain stability.
This V8 engine offers premium engine technologies, including Dual Continuously Variable Valve Timing (D-CVVT), a tuned variable induction system, and low-friction diamond-like coatings (DLC) on piston skirts, rings and tappets. Even with these impressive power increases, EPA fuel economy is estimated at 15 mpg city, 23 mpg highway and 18 mpg combined.
The Tau V8 engine is coupled with a Hyundai-developed eight-speed transmission with SHIFTRONIC® manual shift capability for enhanced acceleration and overall efficiency.
