2014 Hyundai Equus vs. 2014 Acura RLX Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Hyundai Equus offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Acura RLX. The Hyundai Equus will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Acura RLX.

Convenience
With the Acura RLX you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Hyundai Equus, due to its tank size and 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 Hyundai Equus will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Acura RLX, 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 Hyundai Equus and the Acura RLX have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Equus is about the same width as the Acura RLX. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Hyundai Equus, which is slightly longer than the Acura RLX.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Hyundai Equus does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Acura RLX.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Equus has a much more powerful engine than the Acura RLX. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Hyundai Equus and the Acura RLX. The Hyundai Equus has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Acura RLX.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Equus than that of the Acura RLX.
