April 18, 2011 - PRLog -- Well our luxurious Hyundai Equus is racking up the titles for this 2011 year gaining the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) ‘TOP SAFETY PICK’ achieving the highest rating of “Good” in all crash test categories including front, side rollover and rear crash protection.

In order to even be considered for IIHS’s TOP SAFETY PICK award, a vehicle must feature Electronic Stability Control (ESC).  The Equus passed this test and several others the IIHS put our luxury vehicle through.

They found the Equus to have roof strength test for rollover protection, withstanding a force equal to 4.87 times the car’s weight rating this strength-to-weight ratio the highest honor of “Good.” By comparison, the current federal standard is 1.5 times weight.

“The award from IIHS means the Equus affords buyers state-of-the-art safety for protection in most crash situations,” said Mike O’Brien, vice president, Product and Corporate Planning, Hyundai Motor America. “This recognition confirms that the Equus truly is a desirable luxury vehicle with quality engineering and world-class safety features.”

This all-new Hyundai Luxury Vehicle features the best of the best safety features for the 2011 year including Vehicle Stability Management (VSM) system which governs ESC, the electronic parking brake, smart cruise control, the collision warning sensor and the seatbelt tensioning system for optimal safety. The seatbelt tensioning system in the Equus works through sensors, which detect critical driving situations and retract the seatbelts accordingly to present passenger movement. The Equus’ dynamic safety package is further enhanced by the Lane departure Warning System and driver’s knee airbags.

Other safety features include nine standard airbags (advanced dual front airbags, front and rear seat-mounted side-impact airbags, driver knee airbag, and roof-mounted side-curtain airbags), electronic active front head restraints with power controls, electronic seatbelt pretensioners and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS).

Hyundai’s award-winning Tau 4.6-liter provides the power that keeps Equus safe at speed. Later this year, Equus gets a boost to 429 horsepower with the introduction of the all-new 5.0-liter Tau.
