The 2013 Hyundai Equus remains primarily unchanged for the new model year. However one significant upgrade is found under the hood. Equus will now be powered by a 5.0-liter V8 engine producing 429 horsepower – the most powerful engine Hyundai has ever put in a production car. Teamed with a new 8-speed automatic transmission, the big V8 is still expected to achieve 23 mpg on the highway. Also new for 2013 is a new exterior color – White Satin – which is paired with Saddle interior. The Hyundai Equus continues into the 2013 model year available in two trims: Signature and Ultimate. Both are well equipped, but Ultimate adds forward and rear view cameras, reclining rear seats with heating and cooling, rear-seat refrigerator and a rear-seat entertainment system.

BMW and Lexus Killer by TCABigDaddy from Houston on 08/29/2012. Trim: 2013 Hyundai Equus Signature, Owned less than 1 year.

Pros: Tremendous value with super styling that turns heads. The electronics are without equal. The 7 Series comparably equipped was $40k more. The comparable LS was $27k more. I have owned two Lexus LS's with Levinson stereo systems. No comparison. The Lexicon system is the finest, audiophile quality stereo I have heard in a car. The engine is very powerful, though a little slow off the start. But the power curve makes acceleration at speed very impressive. The "Equus Experience" of picking up your car and delivering a Genesis to you is nice, but I like taking the car in and talking to the service writer. The automatic high end loaner is better than Lexus however. Super car, super value.
Cons: The 8 speed transmission with direct injection in the Tau 5.0 liter takes a little getting used to. The car downshifts easily with the slightest acceleration and the direct injection causes a noticeable roar given the virtual silence in the cabin. Still, the gas mileage is excellent given the size of the car. i had a problem with the steering -- pump and steering rack had to be replaced. Hyundai air freighted the parts. Would like to have the power trunk open/close-- same with the TV in the back. You can't get those options from the Ultimate on the Signature without going to a 4 seater. Finally, while the massage function on the driver seat is nice, the controls are very confusing.
Overall review: While the steering issue took some time to resolve, Hyundai was relentless in its determination to fix it to my satisfaction and make me happy. I appreciated that. The Equus sells itself. People come up to it, look it over and are astonished. They are even more astonished by what it costs. It is a luxury car killer. There is no way to justify the costs of the luxury brands when this car is available at this price point. The included service and the guaranteed resale make this a no risk investment. Finally, it's fun to drive a car NO ONE else drives. They are only selling about 25 a month in Houston (according to a salesman I spoke to in a dealership). In Houston, that means only 300 a year. In four months I have yet to see another one on the road. I hear constantly "what kind of car is that?" Great fun.
