progressive Style

A progressive, charismatic style that adds a dynamic and
revolutionary sensibility to the tempered gentility of the
high-end luxury sedan.

  • Adaptive Front Lighting System(AFLS)
    Provide optimal forward field of vision by adjusting the beam angle of the headlights while driving at night.

  • LED outside mirror repeaters
    Elegantly integrated into the mirror housings, the indicator repeaters increase visibility and safety when turning

  • Puddle lamps
    Mounted under the outside mirrors, puddle lamps illuminate the way for the passengers.

  • Wrap around LED rear lights Resembling the shape of an eagle’s wings, energy-saving distinctive LED lights increase visibility both day and night.

  • Power door system
    Even if the door is not fully closed, the system closes it automatically and latches it securely covered.

  • Power trunk lid
    Convenience is maximised by a power operated opening and closing trunk lid.

  • Safety power sunroof
    The generous, wide opening sunroof senses any obstruction and immediately stops until it is removed.

  • Hydrophobic acoustic laminated glass
    Dirt, dust, grease and liquid can be lightly wiped clean while wind noise is also blocked.

  • Dual exhaust mufflers
    Elegantly sculpted into the rear bumper, an immediate impression of high-performance and power is conveyed.

  • Alloy wheels
    Elegant 17" alloy wheels with 245/50 R18 tires are standard on the Equus / Centennial. Optional sporting style 18" alloy wheels are fitted with 245/50 R18 tires.


Luxurious & Harmonious

A jewel of interior style, bringing together in harmony the luxuriousness
communicated by the fine detailing and abundant volumes with the
refinement of a high-end, cutting-edge image

  • 12-way adjustable driver's seat Forget fumbling under the seat for the adjustment controls, the Equus / Centennial lifts them to eye and hand level. Height, rake, lean, forward or backward is easy with a fingertip control.
    Optimum driver support and comfort is also enhanced by an expanded seat cushion.

  • Massage rear VIP seat
    Power adjustable VIP rear seat with air cell massage system enables the Equus / Centennial to meet every luxury criteria for the VIP passenger.

  • Leg support
    Power adjustable VIP seat with leg support provides extra comfort to the passenger, together with the peaceful satisfaction of being treated as a VIP.

  • Rear foot lamps
    A surprisingly practical luxury detail.

  • Fitted cool box
    Located in the rear armrest, the large cool box is easily accessible for the VIP rear passengers. The thermoelectric device does not need a separate condenser, which saves energy.

  • Active front headrests
    During impact, the electronically-activated headrests move upwards and forwards to help prevent whiplash injuries.

  • Electric side curtain
    Too much sun or not enough privacy? Whichever, the touch of a button raises the rear curtain.

  • Luxury seat back table
    The beauty of genuine polished hard wood together with practical convenience is provided for simple tasks, or a light snack.

  • Wing-out rear headrests
    First class style headrests have wings that can be adjusted for perfect comfort.

superior ride and refinement of RED
and adds optimal tuning, perfect
handling, and an engine recognised
as a world leader.

    Displacement : 4,627 cc
    Max. Power : 366ps / 6,500rpm
    Max. Torque : 44.8kg·m / 3,500rpm

    With the Equus / Centennial, performance is an art form. Acclaimed as '2009, 2010 & 2011 Ward's 10 Best Engines (USA)' for 3 years in a row, the V8 engine is a piece of refined modern sculpture with a world class power unit. By using a sophisticated high pressure die-casting system, the compact all-aluminum Tau V8 incorporates variable valve timing and a variable induction system for maximum efficiency. It is clean and lean, yet still delivers a massive 366ps with 44.8 kg·m torque at 3,500rpm. It redefines quiet and smooth driving, while still delivering outstanding power and efficiency.
  • Lambda 3.8 MPi
    Fuel type : Gasoline
    Displacement : 3,778 cc
    Max. Power : 290ps / 6,200rpm
    Max. Torque : 36.5kg·m / 4,500rpm

  • Electronically controlled air suspension Electronic continuous damping control in real time keeps the Equus / Centennial stable, steady and smooth, by increasing or decreasing ride height for varying road conditions.
  • Aerodynamic efficiency Wind tunnel testing delivers an ultra low 0.27 Co-efficient of drag, minimising fuel consumption and cutting wind noise to virtually zero.


Ultimate & Supreme

A world-class high-technology safety system
that prevents accidents and always keeps
passengers safe

  • Airbag technology Nine airbags mean additional safety inside the Equus / Centennial. Front side and full-length curtain airbags are supplemented by a driver's knee airbag and side airbags for the rear seat passengers. Working together with the pre-safe seatbelts and electronic active headrests, they provide a cocoon of maximum safety.
    Knee airbag
    In the case of a heavy impact, the driver is further protected by a knee airbag to
    prevent knee and lower leg injuries.

  • Pre-safe seatbelt By automatically pre-tensioning in case of a possible accident, the seatbelt keeps you in the safest position.

  • Electronic parking brake (EPB)
    Facilitates easier, more secure parking as a part of the VSM.


Quality in every detail

Discovering the many qualities of the Equus / Centennial is a
true journey of exploration.

  • Smart Cruise Control(SCC) SCC judges the safe distance to vehicles or obstructions ahead via radar and can apply necessary braking force in an emergency. Normal cruise control resumes once you're in the clear.

  • Driver Information Display(DIS) All of the on-board computer and air control functions can be accessed and controlled quickly, including the multimedia controls.

  • Supervision cluster with built-in colour monitor A 3.5-inch TFT LCD monitor for detailed information is built into the supervision cluster. On it, information is displayed in coloured text or icon images with sounds.

  • Lexicon sound system with discrete logic7 The perfect ambience demands the perfect sound system. With 608w from 13 channels and 17 speakers, the Lexicon system has been tuned to the Equus / Centennial to deliver the highest audio performance in every part of the car.

Simply follow them for totally problem-free parking.

    The convenience and security of keyless ignition.

Expert's Review
  • CentennialLimitednew
    By James Ruppert01 07 2011 The Hyundai Coupe's mix of Ford Mustang and Ferrari comes together to create a very handsome small coupe, which many passers-by will struggle to recognise as a Hyundai.

    Bracketed by the 10Best-winning Sonata (yes, we just said that) and the budget-luxe Genesis, the Hyundai Azera competes with other big front-wheel-drive sedans for the attention of a motoring sect committed to comfort. One of the oldest models in the Hyundai armory, the Azera went on sale in 2005 as a 2006 model.
    For 2011, it receives a significant refresh that includes more power from its two V-6s (the 3.8-liter in the range-topping Limited tested here is up 20 hp, to 283), a six-speed automatic transmission in place of a five-speed unit, and a revised exterior that features new bumpers, a chrome grille, LED surrounds for the headlamps, and LED taillights. The result is a slightly classier look that is still as anonymous as a ghost writer—although recently revealed sketches of the next-generation Azera promise a dramatic look in line with Hyundai’s emergent styling philosophy.
