2015 Equus

CG Says: The Hyundai Equus sees no changes of note for 2015 after its freshening last year. Equus is the flagship of the Hyundai brand. It’s a rear-wheel-drive premium-large sedan that’s designed to offer all the luxury of a high-end German car (think Audi A8, BMW 7-Series, or Mercedes-Benz S-Class) at a fraction of the price. Equus cannot match those German rivals or the Lexus LS in ride and handling, and cabin refinement is not quite class par. Still, with its impressive collection of high-end convenience features and a starting price that undercuts a Mercedes-Benz S550 by more than $30,000, Equus is a compelling value.
