Hyundai Equus Facelift

Korean carmaker Hyundai is quite active lately and it replaces its models. Just yesterday we found out they plan to revise the 2013 Hyundai Grandeur or also known by the US customers, the Azera. Now, they are back with more. Apparently the Koreans are ready to present a facelift version of their Hyundai Equus saloon. In fact they actually did it in their home market, South Korea. For the ones of you who do not know yet, the current Equus found on the market has as base an extended version of the platform used on the Genesis Sedan. This model went on sale back in 2009 in Korea and in the US the next year.

Now, for the 2013 model, the carmaker offered some modifications to the exterior of the car. The engineers have removed the chrome trim strip on the front and rear bumpers and this way they have designed a new set of alloy wheels in two different sizes. They have also added new mirrors and changed the graphics of the LED tail lamps. This is not the end, of course. The interior of the car was also changed. The new Hyundai Equus received a redesigned center console with wood paneling that stretch across the dash uninterrupted. Moving on, we have new controls for the lights and braking system on the left side of the dashboard. The automatic transmission also received a shifter that looks a lot like one used on a BMW.

In terms of safety and convenience, the Korean carmaker has provided a Blind Spot Detection system that alerts the drivers of vehicles and other objects in blind spots, the Head-Up Display and a new full TFT-LCD cluster. Unfortunately there are no details available yet on the North American Hyundai Equus, but according to the manufacturer, it is going to elevate the entire brand image everywhere in the world. carscoop.blogspot
