2017 Hyundai Equus – Hyundai got serious about stepping to the luxury section when it bought the full-size, rear-drive Equus to the U.S. in 2010, and it would seem that there are enough people willing to buy a $60,000 Hyundai that a next-gen Equus is on the horizon. These spy shots captured a heavily camouflaged Equus undergoing cold-weather testing near the Arctic Circle, and from what there is to see, the car seems to be fairly far along in its development, which means we might see the 2017 Hyundai Equus as early as the end of this year.
2017 Hyundai Equus Review
With the new Mercedes-Benz S-Class debuting last year, and new BMW 7 Series and Lexus LS sedans on the way, the 2017 Hyundai Equus undoubtedly has some tough acts to follow. Considering the quality of the present Equus and the developments Hyundai has made in recent new-model launches, the Equus should manage to set some real heat on the competition.

Genesis calls the G90’s design language Fit Sophistication. It is a long and controlling auto. While the wheelbase is 4.5 inches longer than the Hyundai Equus it essentially replaces, it is only 1.8 inches longer overall, an indicator of how much Genesis has tucked in the front and rear overhangs.

Up front, the G90 features the brand’s new “crest” grille, a large chrome shield that’s wide at the top and tapers downward. It is topped by the brand’s new winged emblem and flanked by either bi-xenon or LED headlights and all of the affiliated lights are LEDs.
The view from the side shows the car’s classic rear wheel drive posture, with a very long hood, a set back cottage, a short deck, and those aforementioned short overhangs. The headlights work out into a notable shoulder line that drops down below the LED taillights. Another side character line flows down from the front wheels and joins up with a chrome trim strip that wraps around the rear end. It is accented by chrome tailpipes. The taillights have a perpendicular look from the back but also extend into the profile.
2017 Hyundai Equus Interior
Indoors, the G90 features a flat layout that accentuates its width and luxury. A substantial 12.3-inch screen dominates the center of the dashboard, and under it are ergonomically designed metal buttons to help control it as well as the climate functions. Several of these buttons have unique contours so you could identify them without always seeing what you’re touching. The top-quality materials–leather, wood, Alcantara, and metal–come together to create an environment that you just’d adore in your living room.
Unlike the EQ900 that was shown early last month, the US-market G90 will only offer a pair of engines. On the one ending, we’ve got a 3.3-liter, twin-turbocharged V6, capable of 365 hp and 376 pound-feet of torque. The 5.0-liter V8 from the Equus will be offered too, and it still churns out 420 hp and 383 lb-ft of torque. But with peak twist from the V6 model available between 1,300 and 4,500 rpm and less than 60 horsepower difference between the two engines, it sounds like the smaller engine will be the one to have, particularly if it proves significantly lighter (Hyundai has not printed the G90’s weight yet). Both engines are matched to eight-speed automatic transmissions and can be paired with Hyundai’s HTRAC all-wheel-drive system.

As this is all based on suppositions and the spy pictures which have been introduced, we can anticipate the next Hyundai Equus to appear in the first quarter of 2017. The car already looks as though it’s nearing end so it will not take too long to develop completely. The present cost of the Equus is around $60,000 and people who’ve afforded to purchase the preceding one will certainly opt for the new one upon its release. We assume the figure will climb this time to no more than $70,000 for the 2017 Hyundai Equus.
