Masterful design &
control worthy of a VIP

Once again, Hyundai makes a powerful design statement that embodies you
- your success, your potential, your dreams - in every line and curve. A natural leader.

    Puddle lamps mounted under the wing mirrors welcome you and your passengers with an inviting glow.

    Rear LED fog lamps emit concentrated red light, making you more visible to traffic behind and improving safety in foggy weather.

Protected on all aspects

Three layers of protection - warning, active and passive measures
- work together to keep you and your passengers safe.

9-airbag system
With nine airbags in the car, you can ride reassured. In addition to front airbags and those on the side (both front and rear), you get a full-length curtain airbag and driver's knee airbag for a system that works in conjunction with seatbelt pretensioners and electronic headrests in the event of an impact.
Blind spot detection
With radars on both sides of the rear bumper, you'll have no trouble spotting vehicles in your blind spot. A warning triangle on the driver-side wing mirror will flash, letting you know when you have company.
Smart Cruise Control (SCC)
Smart Cruise Control not only maintains a set vehicle speed, it also maintains a set distance from the car in front. What’s more, if the vehicle in front of you stops, you stop as well.
All around view monitor system
It's the next best thing to having four sets of eyes. Cameras in the front, left, right and rear give you a 360-degree view of your car's location. Just watch the video in the dashboard monitor. You won't miss a thing.
  • Parking guide system
    Parking just got a whole lot easier. With a 9.2'' LCD, the parking guide system shows how the Centennial will move depending on how you're steering. With simple graphic guidelines, it does all the hard parts of parking for you.
  • ECM outside mirror
    Lights behind you too bright? The ECM outside mirror will sense this and dim them down to make sure you won’t strain your eyes and to keep you safe.
  • Active accelerator pedal
    The active accelerator pedal makes sure you don't apply further downward foot pressure in a potentially dangerous situation. The pedal warns you by vibrating under your foot.
  • Auto defogging system
    The sensor deploys the auto defogging system automatically when the windscreen mists up, to clear the glass.
  • Seatbelt pretensioners
    At the moment of collision, seatbelt pretensioners tighten to hold occupants firmly in their seats, preventing them from being thrown forward forcefully and mitigating injury.


Head Up Display

Now you can keep your head up with driving information that's projected on the windshield.
This means you can keep your eyes on the road and on the information you need.

Lexicon sound system
With 13 channels and 17 speakers (608 watts), the Lexicon sound system with Discrete Logic7 provides you with the perfect driving companion. Enjoy unrivaled sound, wherever you're sitting.
Card type smart key
Say goodbye to jingling. A card-type smart key allows you convenient keyless entry to the Centennial. It's slim enough to slip in your wallet and chic enough to show off.
Drive mode
With three different drive modes – Normal, Sport and Snow – you can select the ride quality to suit your preferred level of cushioning and body motion, or simply in response to the road surface conditions.
New Driver Information System (DIS)
The Driver Information System, easily operated by dial, push and enter control, provides quick access to the multimedia system, placing even more information at your fingertips. The navigation system and the shark antenna apply only to certain countries.
  • Cool and warm box
    Keep your drinks and snacks as cool or warm as you like. A cooling/warming box is integrated into the rear armrest console.

  • Electronic Parking Brake (EPB)
    No more lever tugging or pedal pushing. Just activate the electronic parking brake with the touch of a button. An indicator light turns on to indicate that the brake is in place.
  • USB and aux port
    A USB port on the front centre facia lets you plug in your MP3 player and Smartphone or other portable media player and stream your favourite music through the Centennial/Equus's superlative audio system.iPhone is a trademark of Apple Inc.
  • Centre console
    A centre console provides comfort on long journeys and opens up to reveal a convenient compartment, the ideal location for small items like sunglasses and other essentials.
  • At your convenience
    Design allows for convenient use of the power outlet by allowing for easy connection of the cable. iPhone is a trademark of Apple Inc. Cable and USB car charger are not provided with your purchase.
