2013 Hyundai Equus Facelift makes its debut in Korea

Article by Christian A., on December 10, 2012

Hyundai Motor Company has launched the facelifted Equus in Korea. The styling and features of the Hyundai’s top flagship sedan have been upgraded so that it could be more competitive globally in the luxury segment. The Equus, which uses the Centennial in some markets, made its debut in 1999 while the second generation came in 2009.

Hyundai made use of the reactions of its target customers to determine the changes for the facelifted Equus. The vehicle is aimed at a group of busy leaders who are concerned about their social status but still need functional space and features. Hyundai improved different aspects of the first generation Equus, such as design, performance and convenience features.

The new Equus features a more refined and modern appearance with less chrome on the front bumper, some newly designed wheels and LED rear combination lamps.

To go with the exterior, the design for the interior has been given a dignified appearance with features such as the redesigned premium clock in the middle of the center fascia and double-stitched leather seats. On the other hand, Equus has kept the exterior dimensions of the former version.

Specifically, the Equus facelift is meant to offer the utmost satisfaction to rear seat passengers, with fine-tuned suspension that guarantees more riding comfort and balance on rough road conditions. Both drivers and passengers can enjoy various newly applied advanced convenience and safety features like the Head-Up Display (HUD), which displays speed and navigation information on the windshield so drivers won’t have to take their eyes off the road.

Driver is made safer with Blind Spot Detection (BSD), which senses and alerts drivers of cars and other items in blind spots. The new Equus also features haptic steering, an all-around view monitor, a full TFT-LCD cluster and updated smart cruise control.
