2014 Hyundai Equus vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-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 E-Class. The Hyundai Equus will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to 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). Whether you pick the Hyundai Equus or the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Hyundai Equus is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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

Handling
The Hyundai Equus has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Hyundai Equus than that of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
