The Equus comes with a total of nine airbags, including roof-mounted side-curtain bags that cover those in front and in back, plus a driver's side knee airbag. It's also loaded with some of the top safety technology, including a lane departure warning system, smart cruise control and parking-assist cameras. Standard intelligent cruise control includes an engine stop/start function for use in stop-and-go traffic.
With soft leather, real wood trim, leather-wrapped, French-stitched seats and even a suede-like Alcantara headliner, all in a quiet, isolated cabin, the Equus is every bit a luxury car. Front seats are heated and cooled and are soft, wide and supportive. A massage function is included for the driver's seat. Base Equus Signature models include nearly all the bells and whistles, including the air suspension, front and rear parking assist, smart cruise control, HID headlamps, adaptive front lighting and a heated wood-and-leather steering wheel. A Lexicon Logic 7 surround-sound system is also included and features 17 speakers, 13 channels and 608 watts of power. The system includes HD Radio, XM satellite radio and full iPod integration.
Equus Ultimate models bring the Equus into limousine territory by including a rear-seat entertainment system with dual 9.2-inch high-resolution displays, a refrigerator, cooled and reclining rear seats with outboard power lumbar support, power rear headrests, rear-seat massage adjustable leg support, a power trunklid and automatic power door closure assist and a forward-view parking and cornering camera system.
The Equus' refined cabin is highlighted by a 7-inch LCD center display on Signature models and a 12.3-inch center display on Ultimate models, with driver menus accessible through steering wheel haptic controls.
