The 2016 Hyundai Equus has been introduced in United States with an array of small updates. The range-topping Ultimate version has gained a hands-free smart trunk which automatically opens when the owner stands close to the car’s trunk for several seconds when the key is in their pocket. Hyundai specifies that this system is more accessible as compared to similar equipment from other automakers it does not require the driver to kick near a sensor located below the trunk in order to turn on the hands-free function.
Motivation of the 2016 Hyundai Equus is provided by the same V8 5.0-liter engine producing 429 bhp (319 kW) and 376 lb-ft (509 Nm) sent to the wheels through an 8-speed automatic gearbox. Thanks to this hardware arrangement, the model is capable of returning 15 mpg in the city, 23 mpg on the highway and 18 mpg in the combined cycle.
Hyundai is asking $61,500 for the 2016 Equus Signature whereas the flagship Equus Ultimate will set you back $68,750. This is likely the last model year for the current generation as an all-new version will be out for the 2017MY.
