2014 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class vs. 2015 Hyundai Equus Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Hyundai Equus than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Hyundai Equus will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class as you will with the Hyundai Equus, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Hyundai Equus, 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 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class and the Hyundai Equus have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is about the same width as the Hyundai Equus. The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is slightly shorter than the Hyundai Equus, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Hyundai Equus.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has a smaller turning radius than the Hyundai Equus, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has less seating than the Hyundai Equus, making the Hyundai Equus the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class has less cargo capacity than the Hyundai Equus, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Hyundai Equus.
