Today we received a special set of spy pictures from the next-generation Hyundai’s flagship luxury sedan, the 2017 Equus. Based on original spy shots, a korean forum user draw its lines over its camouflage.
[ads id=”0″ style=”float:left;padding:9px;”]The next-gen 2017 Equus will follow the design cues under Fluidic Sculpture 2.0. The car was also spotted inside a South Korean parking while the front, rear seats and a part of the dashboard were undisguissed and where we can see the new steering wheel with the Equus logo, high quality wood trims, but part of the center console continue under a large piece of black cloth.
The re-engineered Equus will come with new sheet metal designed by Peter Schreyer including a redesigned instrument panel and center stack, along with a new front fascia and grille design and other updates.
The new generation 2017 Hyundai Equus is scheduled to debut as a 2016 or 2017 model year and will include a V8 engine, and All-Wheel Drive for the first time through an 8-speed automatic, Hyundai is also working on a newer 10-speed automatic transmission, which may become available by the time the Equus arrives in the market.. The current Hyundai Equus was launched at the 2010 New York AutoShow. Stay tuned for more info soon!
The 2017 Hyundai Equus will ride on a stretched version of the Genesis Mk2’s platform featuring a new multi-link rear suspension that was fine-tuned with a little help from Lotus.
If the rendered image shown for the 2017 Equus even closely resembles the final sheet metal, Hyundai will have a sensational hit on their hands. This design says to me, crisp, sharp, and confident. It is what projects premium luxury. And…speaking of premium, think how this design would look on the can’t-come-soon-enough, refreshed Sonata?
I am sure the lesson Hyundai has now learned, style does matter!
Yeah, this means that Peter Schereyer will hit with this luxury model, while with the K9/K900 he failed (in terms of exterior design).
Could be, the recently “updated” Sonata is receiving good comments in South Korea.
