FOUNTAIN VALLEY, California — The 2016 Hyundai Equus full-size luxury sedan starts at $62,450 for the base Signature model, reflecting no price increase over the 2015 Equus. Pricing includes a $950 destination charge.
The top-of-the-line 2016 Hyundai Equus Ultimate is priced at $69,700, including shipping, also reflecting no price increase over the 2015 model.
Hyundai's 2016 Equus is expected to arrive at dealerships this summer.
This is a carryover vehicle with minimal changes for the new model year. They include the addition of a hands-free smart trunk with automatic opening as standard equipment on the Ultimate model.
The 2017 Hyundai Equus is due for some major upgrades, including the addition of an all-wheel-drive model for the first time, as Edmunds reported earlier. It will also get a redesigned exterior patterned after the 2015 Hyundai Genesis.
The 2016 Equus is powered by a 429-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 engine linked to an eight-speed automatic transmission.
The Signature and Ultimate models are generously equipped. There are no options. The 2016 Equus Signature features heated-and-cooled front seats, a leather-wrapped dash and a Lexicon sound system with 17 speakers. The 2016 Equus Ultimate adds a forward-view cornering camera, rear-seat illuminated vanity mirrors and a head-up display.
Edmunds says: Hyundai holds the line on 2016 Equus pricing, which is good news for luxury shoppers who put a premium on value.
