There's very significant news for Hyundai's flagship large luxury sedan, the Equus. For 2012, the model gets a new powertrain--including a more powerful 5.0L V8 engine and new 8-speed automatic transmission. The Equus also now comes with a new side-window satin-chrome finish, and the top-luxury Equus Ultimate now includes power rear side-window sunshades.

The Equus is Hyundai's luxury flagship, aimed directly at top models from other luxury brands--including the Lexus LS and Jaguar XJ--but costing thousands less. The new V8 in the Equus, at 429 horsepower, is Hyundai's most powerful engine ever--and more powerful than the engines in the Lexus LS 460 and Mercedes-Benz S550. And the new 8-speed automatic transmission enhances the Equus' performance while still managing to return an EPA-estimated 24 mpg highway. There are yet other reasons why the Equus stands out from the luxury pack, and they're not all value-related. According to Hyundai, the Equus has more leg, head, and shoulder room, both in front and in back, than the Lexus LS 460. It's also a standout for safety features, and an IIHS Top Safety Pick.
