Likely to draw design cues from the Hyundai Vision G Coupe concept.
Hyundai is currently prepping the next generation Hyundai Equus, which will make its debut in 2016. The Korean Car Blog has manage to obtain a few details on the mid-size flagship sedan.
The 2017 Hyundai Equus is likely to draw design cues from the new Hyundai Vision G Coupe from the 2015 Pebble Beach Concourse D’Elegance. It will sport a large hexagonal grille flanked by projector headlamps with LED DRLs, and long intake in the lower fascia.
The side profile rides on large of alloy wheels, and has a character line emerging from the front fender, while the rear gets LED tail lights and dual rectangular exhaust tips.
Inside, the Equus will feature an all-new design that will be remarkably different to the outgoing model. It will have premium wood and silver inserts on the door panels, dashboard and center console, while the seats are upholstered in leather and has power-adjustablity as standard.
The next Equus will come equipped with a wireless charger, infotainment system with around-view monitor, dual zone climate control, and other features carried over from the 2015 Hyundai Genesis.
Power will come from two engine options: a 5.0-liter Tau V8 engine or a new 3.3-liter twin-turbo Lambda V6 engine, reports the blog. It’s still unclear if Hyundai will offer an 8-speed automatic, or debut their new 10-speed automatic in the Equus.
