2015 Hyundai Equus vs. 2013 Lexus GS 450h 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 Hyundai Equus than the Lexus GS 450h. The Hyundai Equus will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Lexus GS 450h.

Convenience
With the Lexus GS 450h 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 is somewhat more expensive than the Lexus GS 450h. 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Lexus GS 450h.

Dimensions
Since the Hyundai Equus is much wider than the Lexus GS 450h, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Hyundai Equus, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lexus GS 450h.

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 Lexus GS 450h.

Handling
The Hyundai Equus has a larger turning radius than the Lexus GS 450h, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Equus has a much more powerful engine than the Lexus GS 450h. 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 Lexus GS 450h. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Hyundai Equus will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Lexus GS 450h.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Equus than that of the Lexus GS 450h.
