Overview

The 2015 Hyundai Equus is a large, comfort-oriented rear-wheel-drive luxury sedan, offered in two trims: Equus Signature and Equus Ultimate. Both come with a 5.0L V8 engine, as well as a long list of luxury and safety features that closely match the offerings of other top luxury sedans. The 429-horsepower V8 "Tau" engine in the Equus incorporates high-pressure direct injection, dual continuously variable valve timing and tuned induction to produce a remarkable combination of power and efficiency. An 8-speed automatic is mated to the V8 and allows manual control and a wide span of ratios. Although the Equus is clearly geared more toward comfort than performance, its powerful engine, rear-wheel-drive layout, stiff structure and user-selectable suspension allow some latitude for enthusiastic driving. The combination of a 5-link rear suspension geometry and continuous damping control (CDC) helps keep the wheels firmly in contact with the road surface, without bringing too much harshness into the cabin. The air suspension system includes a selectable Sport setting for curvy roads, as well as a new Snow mode for optimal control in wintry conditions. The big 4-wheel disc brakes as well as electro-hydraulic power steering and a reasonably tight turning circle help give the Equus a tidy, manageable feel on the road.

Standard intelligent cruise control includes an engine stop/start function for use in stop-and-go traffic.

Front seats are heated and cooled and are soft, wide and supportive. A massage function is included for the driver's seat. Base Equus Signature models include nearly all the bells and whistles, including the air suspension, front and rear parking assist, smart cruise control, HID headlamps, adaptive front lighting and a heated wood-and-leather steering wheel. A Lexicon Logic 7 surround-sound system is also included and features 17 speakers, 13 channels and 608 watts of power. The system includes HD Radio, XM satellite radio and full iPod integration.
