2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 740 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 BMW ActiveHybrid 740 than the Hyundai Equus. The Hyundai Equus will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW ActiveHybrid 740.

Convenience
With the BMW ActiveHybrid 740 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 BMW ActiveHybrid 740 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 BMW ActiveHybrid 740 and the Hyundai Equus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW ActiveHybrid 740 is about the same width as the Hyundai Equus. When looking at overall length, the BMW ActiveHybrid 740 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Hyundai Equus.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW ActiveHybrid 740 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Hyundai Equus.

Handling
The BMW ActiveHybrid 740 has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Equus, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW ActiveHybrid 740 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 ActiveHybrid 740 and the Hyundai Equus. The BMW ActiveHybrid 740 has significantly less cargo room than the Hyundai Equus, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
