2014 Audi A8 vs. 2014 Hyundai Equus Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A8 than the Hyundai Equus. The Hyundai Equus will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi A8.

Convenience
With the Audi A8 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Equus, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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). The Audi A8 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Equus, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Audi A8 and the Hyundai Equus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A8 is much wider than the Hyundai Equus, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi A8, which is slightly longer than the Hyundai Equus.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Audi A8 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Hyundai Equus.

Handling
The Audi A8 has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Equus, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the Audi A8 and the Hyundai Equus.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A8 and the Hyundai Equus. The Audi A8 has significantly less cargo room than the Hyundai Equus, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Audi A8 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Equus.
