What's New in the 2016 Hyundai Equus?

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

Which Equus is the Best?

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


How Much Does a 2016 Hyundai Equus Cost?

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.

Is the 2016 Hyundai Equus a Safe Car?

The 2016 Hyundai Equus comes with standard stability control, 4-wheel anti-lock disc brakes, active front headrests and nine airbags (front, front-side, driver-knee, rear-side and full-length side-curtain). Other standard features include a blind spot monitoring system, a lane-departure warning system, adaptive cruise control with automatic braking, and front and rear parking sensors with rear cross-traffic alert.

The federal government's National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not yet crash-tested the Equus. The nonprofit Insurance Institute for Highway Safety has submitted the Equus to several of its tests (it earned the firm's top Good rating), but not all of them.

2016 Hyundai Equus vs the competition

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.

Used Audi A8 -- With Audi's certified pre-owned warranty, you can enjoy peace of mind in a low-mileage used A8. You'll also enjoy the A8's superior agility and interior craftsmanship.
