Fresh interior shots of 2017 Huyndai Equus, the Korean luxury sedan of the third generation, have appeared on the Internet.
The Hyundai manufacturer plans to expand its presence in the luxury car segment and compete with such famous models as BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz S-Class. Judging by the photos of its interior decorations, it is quite possible for the upcoming Equus to cope with the task.
The Interior Features
Photospies managed to spot the rear part of the interior of the novelty. Similar to the current model, two different from each other configurations for the car rear will be available in the new 2017 Equus.
In the first, basic version, rear passengers will be accommodated on a triple back sofa, fitted with a folding armrest in the middle of it. This item of the rear is the most equipped and has got a variety of switches and buttons to operate the climate control as well as the multimedia complex.
In the two seats version, the back seat passengers will enjoy a more luxurious configuration with retractable footrests (one or two), comfortable, expensive seats separated by a center console that will contain miniature refrigerators, as well as a display – things you have never associated with this company, but most likely with manufacturers such as Mercedes-Benz or other more expensive luxury cars of other brands.
Looking at the photos it seems that the materials used to maintain this car design are of a very high quality. Optionally, the vehicle will provide you with the keyless access to the Luggage compartment. The car will not give way to its famous competitors in comfort and convenience.
The Exterior Design
Concerning to the exterior of the novelty we can say that some elements were taken from the Vision G concept and the Hyundai Genesis, including the chrome plated grille, the profile line and the shape of the headlights. Taking the fresh shots into consideration it can be safely confirmed that the car has become more modern and dynamic in design, accentuating the aggressive style. It will definitely appeal to the young.
The Technical Specs
The new vehicle is designed on the modular Genesis MK2 platform with a new multilink rear suspension used in the Lotus cars, therefore the car will, most likely, be special with the sports riding style. This platform also includes the all-wheel drive system.
The car will be equipped with the five-liter 420-horsepower V8 power unit that will carry out its work with the ten-step automatic gearbox of the last modification.
The car version with the AWD system is available for the North American customers, as well as for the other markets the manufacturer has made a choice between engines, you can purchase this car with the V6 engine. In the future, it is possible that the V6 Turbo as well as the plug-in hybrid petrol engine would be installed in the Equus.
The official representative of the company stated that the absence of this option at the present Equus modification has affected the sales greatly, as 85% of all the sold luxury sedans have been implemented in the Northern latitudes.
This assumption is very interesting, but in reality it is unlikely that the lack of the AWD performance could have such a great impact on the sales statistics of the company.
Perhaps the fresh model, manufactured from the beginning to become a serious competitor for the international leading companies in the prestigious class like the Mercedes S-Class and the Lexus LS due to the technological features as well as the exterior, as a result it will be able to find customers in the international arena and to take the part of the market into its possession.
We’ll soon discover everything in details, as the new generation of Hyundai is planned to be released next year, and most likely it will be presented in April at the New York Motor Show.
