Hyundai has unveiled the facelifted Equus in South Korea.

Designed to be more refined than its predecessor, the updated model features a revised grille, restyled headlights and updated alloy wheels. Out back, the changes are less noticeable but include updated LED taillights and less chrome trim.

The cabin also becomes more stylish as it adopts double-stitched leather seats, a revised steering wheel and additional wood trim. There's also a digital instrument cluster, an updated infotainment system and a new analog clock which is flanked by revised switchgear. New options include a Blind Spot Detection system and a head-up display that shows navigation and speed information on the windshield.

Under the hood, two engines are available. The 3.8-liter GDi V6 produces 334 HP (246 kW) and 395 Nm (291 lb-ft) of torque, while the 5.0-liter Tau V8 churns out 416 HP (306 kW) and 510 Nm (376 lb-ft) of torque.

The facelifted Equus is currently on sale in South Korea and will likely be launched in international markets in the coming months.
