Expert Quotes:

Ultimate trim adds an elaborate rear-seat treatment comprising a console with a refrigerator, cooled and massaging rear seats, La-Z-Boy-style lower-leg supports, a front-mounted peekaboo camera and an 8-inch video screen.
Inside Line

The Ultimate includes power headrests for both seats, a refrigerator in the center console, and an eight-inch monitor. Your driver will appreciate the forward-view cornering camera, and bellmen the power trunklid.
Car and Driver

The leather is luxurious and the extensive spans of wood trim on the dash and center console look good.

Unfortunately, you have to share the refrigerator in the center armrest and single-screen rear entertainment system with any traveling companions seated in the erstwhile business class behind the driver. But since they don’t get the footrest or massage you still have plenty to lord over them.
Fox News

When oil-change time comes around, pull out the Hyundai-supplied Apple iPad that takes the place of the owner's manual (a dead tree edition is included as well), dial up the service app and you can schedule an appointment through the tubes of the Interwebs.

The Equus is Hyundai's most lavishly equipped vehicle, even in the base Signature edition. If there's a missing feature somewhere, it's lonely.

For $61,920, the standard-issue Equus is anything but that. It includes the usual power features, cruise control, air conditioning. Beyond the basics, it's a full-boat approach, with standard leather upholstery and wood trim; a moonroof; three-zone climate control; adaptive control for the cruise; front and rear parking sensors; a pre-collision warning system; high-intensity discharge headlamps with LED running lights; a rearview camera; heated and cooled front seats; and a heated steering wheel.

On the connectivity front, the Equus' Bluetooth also streams audio, and integrates into its infotainment controller--one of the knob-driven systems that doesn't respond to screen touches and blocks many functions when the car is moving. We long for a more freewheeling time. A navigation system with real-time traffic is standard, as is a glorious 598-watt Lexicon audio system with 17 speakers.

On the $68,920 Equus Ultimate, a finer Lexicon system is standard, along with surround-view cameras; a cooled bin between the rear seats; power-recline rear seats with power headrests; a soft-close system for doors and the trunklid; a twin-screen rear-seat entertainment system; and a 12.3-inch-wide TFT screen that replaces the gauges with beautifully rendered digital replicas.

Hyundai understands that Equus owners will have a completely different level of expectations compared to Accent or Elantra shoppers, so it's offering specially tailored showrooms, at-home demos, and personalized valet services, with scheduling available to have the vehicle picked up or dropped off to home or work.

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.
