2013 Hyundai Equus Safety

9.0
On Safety

The 2013 Hyundai Equus is a big, stout luxury car with every indication of a solid structure and good occupant protection; factor in a lengthy list of active-safety features, and there's no obvious compromise here versus German luxury sedans and their safety pedigree. 

Although the Equus still hasn't been tested by the federal government, it's been given top 'good' scores in every category of testing from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), and it's earned Top Safety Pick status.

In addition to the usual airbags and stability control, the Equus also has front and rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, a rearview camera, and a lane-departure warning system. The latter system tightens the seatbelt when it detects a drift out of the driving lane. We're not the biggest fans of these systems, because the haptic feedback can be distracting in sporty driving, yet turning it off defeats its very purpose.

All Equus models include several key active-safety features; and the Equus is a Top Safety Pick.

Some offerings in this class do offer all-wheel drive--thought of in some very limited situations as a safety feature--although that's not an option on the Equus.
