2013 Hyundai Equus 4.4 15
$ 22,461-37,413
June 27, 2012
Vehicle Overview

Not long ago, Hyundai shot for the moon by expanding its lineup with the rear-wheel-drive Genesis — a car intended to emulate midsize luxury cars like the BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class for less money than either sedan. Introduced for 2011, Hyundai now has a sort of super-Genesis in the Equus, an even larger sedan that aims to take on the BMW 7 Series and Lexus LS at a price point one rung lower. Toward that end, the Equus, which can seat up to four or five people depending on the trim level, might be cross-shopped against sedans ranging from a 5 Series and E-Class to an Acura RL or Volvo S80.
New for 2013
There are no significant changes for 2013.
The Equus resembles a larger, bejeweled Genesis; it's probable that passers-by will mistake the two. Although the Equus shares its cohort's platform, it measures 7.2 inches longer. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 19-inch alloy wheels
  • Standard adaptive xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
  • Optional forward corner-view camera

By the measurements, the Equus' cabin isn't appreciably larger than the Genesis' — front and rear legroom are up less than half an inch — but both cars meet the EPA's large-car classifications, so few shoppers should be wanting for space.

Nor should they be wanting for features. The dash comes wrapped in French-stitched leather, and it adorns more places — most notably the center console surroundings and steering wheel — than in the Genesis. Interior features include:

  • Standard iPod connectivity
  • Standard Bluetooth connectivity
  • Standard power moonroof
  • Standard power rear sunshade
  • Standard heated and cooled front seats
  • Optional power-reclining rear seats
  • Optional massaging rear seat with power-extending ottoman

Under the Hood
Mechanical features include:

  • 429-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 with 376 pounds-feet of torque
  • Eight-speed automatic transmission
  • Rear-wheel drive
  • Air suspension with adaptive damping

Standard safety features include:

  • Four-wheel-disc antilock brakes
  • Electronic stability system 
  • Side-impact airbags for the front and rear outboard seats
  • Driver's knee airbag
  • Side curtain airbags
  • Active front head restraints 
  • Lane departure warning system
  • Parking sensors and a backup camera
