The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Hyundai Equus, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
