2014 Hyundai Equus Signature vs Ultimate Test Drive & Luxury Car Video Review
The 2014 Hyundai Equus is an exceptional value for the dollar. Although
Hyundai is not a prestige brand like Mercedes or BMW; instead it's a value
brand. The Equus comes as 2 different trim levels: the Signature starts at
$61k while the Ultimate goes for $68k. This full-sized luxury sedan offers
a marvelous level of comfort at a discount price when compared to the
Check Out the 2014 Hyundai Equus
This review takes on both the Signature and Ultimate Equus models and shows
some differences between the two. The Equus presents a unique value
proposition among full-sized luxury sedans. Hyundai has a concierge service
that will bring an Equus Luxury Car to your front door for a test drive.
That same service will also pick up your car when the maintenance is due.
The 2014 Hyundai Equus is powered by a 5.0 liter V-8 gasoline direct
injection engine that makes 429 horsepower and 376 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission is an 8-speed automatic. Fuel economy figures are
not that great since this is a big heavy car with a large displacement V-8.
The numbers are 15 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway.
The Equus is an executive transport that is as nice to drive and it is to
be driven around. The rear-view backup camera and multi-view cameras are
fantastic. On the inside the 2014 Equus puts everything at the driver and
passenger's control. The ride and handling is as smooth as you could
possibly want it to be. The big question is "does the Equus really compete
with Lexus, Mercedes, BMW, or Audi?" Well the Equus is a whole lot less
Driving the 2014 Hyundai Equus is a pleasure. This luxury sedan is fact,
comfortable, and packed with technology. While the Equus may be Hyundai's
flagship sedan, they are content to keep sales here in the U.S. relatively
low which adds to the exclusivity of this luxury car.

2012 Hyundai Equus Test Drive & Luxury Car Review
http://www.autobytel.com/hyundai/equus/2012/?id=32972 Everything you would
expect in a luxury sedan can be found in the 2012 Hyundai Equus. In fact
the Equus is a very nice alternative to Lexus, BMW, and Mercedes at a more
affordable price. The Equus is a RWD long wheel base luxury sedan with a
base price of $59,000. This is $15k-$30k less than is competition!
When the Equus was first launched in this country it came with a very
respectable 4.6 liter engine. But the engine certainly did not have the
guts to match up to some of the competitors in the luxury car segment. For
the 2012 model year the Equus gets an updated GDI 5.0 liter V-8 engine
produces huge numbers at 429 horsepower and 376 lb-ft. of
torque. The transmission is an 8-speed automatic. Fuel economy figures are
15 MPG in the city and 23 MPG on the highway.
Hyundai has gone to great lengths to shed the image that their cars lack
character. Well the new fluidic design element is evident on the 2012
Hyundai Equus. Up front the Equus shares the same style front grill as the
Genesis sedan. HID Xenon headlights equipped with LED turn signals really
accent the exterior of this luxury sedan. The 19-inch chrome wheels are
also a great touch and they perfectly accentuate the other chrome accents
parts on the exterior. The Equus can easily be mistaken for a Lexus or
other high-end luxury cars.
If you got behind the wheel of a 2012 Hyundai Equus, you might think you
are in a Lexus LS 460. The gauges are very similar to that of other
high-end luxury cars and the seat adjustments are located on the door just
like they are in a Mercedes S550. There is an 8-inch navigation unit that
also displays driver information located in the center dash. The whole
interior is wrapped in high quality leather. There are lovely wood accents
throughout. The audio is handled by a 608-watt Lexicon sound system. The
driver's seats are 12-way adjustable and feature both heating and cooling.
In the back there are two premium first-class seats that can recline and
feature leg support. The center console in the rear is a mini fridge. The
2012 Hyundai Equus combines all the best features found on other luxury
cars in one great package.

Redline Review: 2014 Hyundai Equus Ultimate
Its standard V8 power, plush ride, and luxurious cabin allows the 2014
Hyundai Equus to feel like a true flagship luxury sedan in several areas
including technology, refinement, and interior space. Only drivers in
search of sportier driving dynamics, more powertrain options, and a
prestigious badge will find more appealing vehicles elsewhere.

What i have to say about the Equus: It's a huge bargain compared to it's
main competitors. Although the material quality and driving dynamics dont
really come close to the competitors, it still offers huge amount of luxury
features. The Navigation is pretty outdated for a car in this price range.
The massage function is a nice touch to the luxury. All in all its a great
bargain, but the quality is just not up to par with it's competitors. Like
