Hyundai is also loading the base Equus Signature with more equipment than its rivals, including high-intensity discharge headlamps, keyless ignition, front and rear parking sensors, a backup camera, adaptive cruise control, and lane-departure warning.

The Equus is Hyundai’s first vehicle fitted with a lane-departure warning system, and it's an advanced one that features haptic feedback.
Fox Car Report


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.

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.

Conclusion

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

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
