Refined ride; strong acceleration; most of the expected luxuries; great value
All-wheel drive isn't offered; interior quality reflects the relatively low price
The Equus is unchanged for 2016, save for a new hands-free trunk on the Ultimate model. See the 2016 Hyundai Equus models for sale near you
Might as well go Ultimate, right? You'll pay more than a base-level Equus, but you'll be getting a lot of car for less than the base price of most executive sedans. Find a Hyundai Equus for sale
The 2016 Hyundai Equus is offered in two trim levels: Signature and Ultimate.
The Signature ($62,500) trim provides such amenities as 19-inch wheels, adaptive xenon headlamps, LED accent lights and fog lights, front and rear parking sensors, a power trunk lid, a sunroof, a leather-wrapped dashboard, leather upholstery, 10-way power front seats with driver lumbar support, wood interior trim, electroluminescent gauges with a complementary 7-in thin-film-transistor (TFT) LCD display, tri-zone automatic climate control with separate rear controls, a 3-passenger rear bench with power-reclining seatbacks, a power rear sunshade, a 9.2-in central LCD display with a navigation system and a rearview camera, and a 17-speaker, 608-watt Lexicon audio system with iPod/USB and Bluetooth connectivity.
The top-of-the-line Ultimate ($69,700) boasts power-closing doors, a heads-up display, a multicamera parking system, a 12-in TFT LCD instrument-cluster display, dual rear 9.2-in LCD screens with a DVD player and separate controls, ventilated rear seats with power lumbar support, a rear-console refrigerator, cooled rear seats and a forward-view cornering camera for the driver. New for 2016 is a standard hands-free trunk.
With so many standard features stuffed into its two trim levels, the Equus doesn't offer any options. Trunk space, meanwhile, clocks in at a capacious 16.7 cu ft.

2016 BMW 740i -- We specify the 6-cylinder 740i because it's only about $10,000-$15,000 more expensive than the Equus to start. Some may believe that's a small price to pay for the superior sportiness and brand cachet of the 7 Series.
2016 Lexus LS 460 -- The LS offers edgy styling and a well-crafted interior, not to mention Lexus' excellent resale value.
2016 Hyundai Genesis -- The current-generation Genesis is a revelation with its striking styling, agile handling, rich interior and full-size passenger space. It even shares its optional V8 engine with the Equus. You might find the Genesis more appealing overall, in which case you'll save a bundle of cash.
