Perhaps foreshadowing changes due in our market soon Hyundai has given its 2013 model year Equus a slight facelift in its home market of South Korea, with additional enhancements in the cabin along with new convenience and safety features.
On the outside, subtle changes were made to the exterior with the removal of chrome trim strips on the front and rear bumpers, new wheels, new mirrors, and updating the LED tail lights. More of the enhancements and changes are found in the interior with a redesigned center console and new controls for the infotainment system. In addition, the Korean automaker has replaced the round clock with a square one, new controls for the lights and braking system, and a new shifter for the automatic gearbox.
New convenience and safety features include the Heads-up Display (HUD), Blind Spot Detection (BSD), and a new full TFT-LCD cluster. It’s likely that these changes will be heading to America, as Hyundai stated that “the facelifted Equus is expected to further elevate Hyundai’s entire brand image worldwide.”
