Hyundai Motor offering a bigger, better Universe

Jan 23,2019
Hyundai’s Universe is about to get bigger.

Hyundai Motor unveiled an updated version of its luxury coach, the Universe, on Tuesday, increasing its size and adding safety features.

The updated coach, scheduled for release next March, has an extended wheelbase of 12.5 meters (41 feet), 0.5 meters longer than the existing model. Distance between seats has been increased.

The vehicle comes with a variety of new safety features applied for the first time in a coach in the local market, such as an engine fire extinguishing system, driver attention warning and a rear-view monitor.

Hyundai Motor explained that the Universe’s driver attention warning system and smart cruise control are now offered to prevent drowsy driving and other avoidable accidents.

The new Universe also has a refreshed exterior design with headlight changes and will be available in three trims.
