While many of us are still somewhat recovering from the madness that is the Geneva Motor Show, automakers are turning their attention to the next big show in New York. Hyundai has announced today that New York would be the place where they introduce the revised 2014 Equus.

Hyundai released a teaser shot and says the 2014 Equus will come with more than 30 updates, including exterior and interior design tweaks, a revised suspension, improved materials, and new "driver technology displays."

However the sleuths at CarScoops figured out that Hyundai has already revealed the 2014 Equus. Back in December, Hyundai introduced the refreshed Equus in South Korea. Judging from the shots Hyundai released in December and the teaser shot, it was figured out to be one in the same.

phew! for a second there I thought there might be something original and attractive from Hyundai, but their streak continues. My most hated brand in America (has pulled ahead of Toyota).

Vertical grille makes it look like a Lincoln or Buick, which is bad. Horizontal grills look more like Mercedes, which is better. The teaser pic has horizontal bars and the other pic show vertical, odd. I will say the Genesis and Equus need to develop some Hyundai styling or something of their own, and not just copy other luxo cars.

The wheels look sort of like jet turbines, that is cool. That was the one good thing the Saab 9-5 that was on sale for a year had.
