Hyundai Working on Equus Facelift
The 2012 model year update improved Hyundai’s flagship sedan with the Korean automaker’s very own 8-speed automatic transmission and the introduction of Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI) engines. They also introduced a sportier model, powered by a revised 5.0-liter V8 with 429 hp and 376 lb·ft (510 N·m).
Thus, we don’t foresee any engine upgrades in the future, but a facelift is coming. A heavily camouflaged prototype has been caught testing in South Korea. It seems that the makeover will be just as radical as on the Genesis Coupe.
You’ve got a wave pattern forming in the headlights, most likely LED accents, as well as a quad bulb arrangement for each headlight. Most likely, the grille design will follow the evolution of the fluidic design language seen in the 2013 Santa Fe.
