Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects the Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value for all trim levels, but not necessarily all available options.
The Kelley Blue Book Suggested Retail value represents the amount an auto dealer might ask for a specific vehicle; the actual sale price will vary. A vehicle's popularity, condition, warranty, color and local market conditions are factors involved in determining a final price. The retail value is not a trade-in or private party value.
The Suggested Retail value assumes that the vehicle has been fully reconditioned and has a clean title history. The Suggested Retail value also allows for advertising, sales commissions, insurance and other costs of doing business as a dealer. Most vehicles offered at this price have passed an inspection, and some may carry a warranty. Vehicle mileage is assumed to be normal or below normal.

Not long ago, Hyundai expanded 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. Hyundai 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 or an E-Class to an Acura RL or a Volvo S80. It has received some minor updates for 2014, including different lights front and rear, new mirrors and a handful of interior upgrades. ExteriorBased on the rear-drive Genesis platform, the Equus is longer and more luxurious, but its styling is not all that different. The Equus features:
Standard 19-inch alloy wheels
Standard adaptive xenon high-intensity-discharge headlights
Optional forward corner-view camera
InteriorFor 2014, the Equus features a new center console design and a new trim level covers more interior pieces in leather. New for the rear seat are two touch-screen display monitors built into the front seat headrests, replacing the single screen on the rear of the center console. Interior features include:
Standard iPod connectivity
Standard Bluetooth connectivity
Standard power moonroof
Standard power rear sunshade
Standard heated and cooled front seats
Under the HoodThe powertrain is unchanged for the 2014 update, but suspension tuning has been revised to provide more differentiation between Sport and Normal modes. Mechanical features include:
429-horsepower, 5.0-liter V-8 with 376 pounds-feet of torque
Eight-speed automatic transmission
Air suspension with adaptive damping
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
