2016 Acura RLX vs. 2015 Hyundai Equus Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the Acura RLX than in the Hyundai Equus, due to the Acura RLX's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Hyundai Equus will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RLX.

Convenience
The Acura RLX will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Hyundai Equus, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). Based on MSRP, the Acura RLX is clearly a better financial choice over the Hyundai Equus. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Acura RLX and the Hyundai Equus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Acura RLX is about the same width as the Hyundai Equus. The Acura RLX is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Equus, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The Acura RLX has much less torque than the Hyundai Equus, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Acura RLX has about the same turning radius as the Hyundai Equus, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Acura RLX is significantly less powerful than the Hyundai Equus. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Acura RLX and the Hyundai Equus. The Acura RLX has less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Equus, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Acura RLX is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Equus.
