2014 BMW 535d vs. 2014 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 535d, 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 535d.

Convenience
With the BMW 535d 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 535d 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 535d and the Hyundai Equus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 535d 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 535d, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Equus.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 535d transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Hyundai Equus.

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