Product Overview

Hyundai Equus / Centennial (chassis code LZ/YJ) is a full-size luxury sedan in production from 1999 to 2008. It was available with a range of V6 and V8 engines that displaced 3.0 to 4.5 liters.
Slotted to be Hyundai's flagship, the original Equus features a large number of premium interior appointments. It was also available in LWB guise as a chauffeur-driven limousine. For comfort, the Equus / Centennial has a full multi-link suspension setup, too.
This generation of Equus had limited availability outside Korea (with the LWB limited to its home country).
