Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE includes a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t bother about a stiff ride, although SE is still relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can also be an excellent bargain considering most of the safety and tech equipment you get for the money. Finally, the SE can be acquired with a wide range of options, in order to pick and choose those that are right for your budget.
Crossover SUVs might be all the rage, but there’s still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 Hyundai Equus. Coming off a redesign just last year, the 2020 Hyundai Equus is a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with lots of standard safety equipment and plenty of options to decide on from.
As has been the case for a while, you can get the 2020 Hyundai Equus with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a more powerful V6, or you can get the miserly 2020 Hyundai Equus Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 Hyundai Equus is comfortable and compliant. 2020 Hyundai Equus also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 Hyundai Equus with a little extra personality. Inside, the 2020 Hyundai Equus provides a simple yet feature-packed cabin, especially if you opt for among the upper trim levels. There are many of options to choose from along the way.
The 2020 Hyundai Equus is really as competent while they come. It’s well-priced on the whole, and modern feature content helps it be supremely easy to drive. If you’re trying to find something with much more class and space than a small sedan, the 2020 Hyundai Equus might just be the sedan for you.
The 2020 Hyundai Equus is the base trim. It includes a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 Hyundai Equus Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the next rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Many of the features located on the upper trim levels could be put into the low trim levels as options. Other notable options include a sunroof, a JBL audio system coupled with a built-in navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 Hyundai Equus stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is easy to fold down to match longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to produce many people happy. Loading an automobile seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however, not stellar. The forward center console bin is perfect for concealing items but has a hard, slippery floor, so that they slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and there are modest door pockets in the front and rear that are great for small water bottles only.
The 2020 Hyundai Equus includes a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles ensure it is easy to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s quite simple to mount a car seat, with obvious and readily available lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so your front seat do not need to be scooted all the way forward.
