2014 Cadillac CTS 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 Cadillac CTS, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Cadillac CTS will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Hyundai Equus.

Convenience
The Cadillac CTS 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 Cadillac CTS 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 Cadillac CTS and the Hyundai Equus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Cadillac CTS is much slimmer than the Hyundai Equus, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Cadillac CTS is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Equus, which may make it easier to park.

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

Handling
The Cadillac CTS has a smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Equus, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Cadillac CTS 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 Cadillac CTS and the Hyundai Equus. The Cadillac CTS 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 Cadillac CTS is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Equus.
