Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Price:   -  From $61,500
2015 Ultimate 4dr Rear-Wheel Drive Sedan Price:   -  From $68,750


Buyers in the market for a full-size luxury sedan don't usually put Hyundai on their shopping list, but they probably would if they knew about the Equus. When it comes to size, power and luxury, the Equus is right up there with the coveted European flagships. What it lacks in brand recognition and image can be easily forgiven once its class-leading price is factored in.

What's New for 2015

The Equus is essentially unchanged.

Choosing Your Hyundai Equus

The Equus certainly looks the part of a premium luxury sedan thanks to its sheer mass and finely tailored body. You get the same impression on the inside, which greets passengers with high-grade leather, fine wood and an abundance of slick technology.

Not surprising given its aspirations, the Equus is a rear-driver powered by a 5-liter V8 that produces a forceful 429 horsepower, matched to an eight-speed automatic transmission. You can tailor the car's performance to one of three available driving modes: Normal, Sport and Snow. All models carry an adjustable air suspension for maximum cruising comfort.

The Equus is available in two indulgently equipped trim levels:

Comes with interior luxuries such as heated and ventilated front seats with driver memory, heated power-reclining rear seats, a heated steering wheel, tri-zone climate control and a power rear sunshade. The 17-speaker Lexicon surround-sound system features a six-CD changer and satellite and HD radio.

Safety technology is present in full force, including adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, a rearview camera, and front and rear parking sensors. You also get a navigation system with real-time traffic info, power-folding side mirrors, a sunroof, automatic wipers with de-icers, LED foglamps and running lights, adaptive bi-xenon headlamps and 19-inch alloy wheels.

Tops off the Equus with power soft-close doors, a power trunk lid, full LCD instrumentation, a head-up display and a surround-view camera system. Rear passengers are treated to ventilated seats with lumbar adjustments, power side window sunshades, vanity mirrors and a dual-screen DVD entertainment system.

At this level of equipment, it shouldn't come as a surprise that there are no factory options for the Equus.

CarsDirect Tip

Even in top Ultimate dress, the Equus undercuts its better-known competitors in price by a significant margin. The $7,000 upgrade is worth it if you intend to carry passengers in the back on a regular basis.
