2014 BMW 535 vs. 2015 Hyundai Equus Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Equus than the BMW 535, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Equus will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 535.

Convenience
The BMW 535 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 535 will have less of an impact on your bank account than 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 BMW 535 and the Hyundai Equus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 535 is a little narrower than the Hyundai Equus, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the BMW 535, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Equus.

Drivetrain
The BMW 535 has much less torque than the Hyundai Equus, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 535 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 BMW 535 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 BMW 535 and the Hyundai Equus. The BMW 535 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 BMW 535 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Equus.
