2016 Hyundai Equus vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class. The Hyundai Equus will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.

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 and the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Hyundai Equus doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.

Handling

When it comes to horsepower, the Hyundai Equus is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.

Utility
The Hyundai Equus offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Hyundai Equus has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.
