KBB Editors' Overview

By Editors - Updated Date: 8/6/2013

When Korean automaker Hyundai launched its Genesis near-luxury sedan and sport coupe, many wondered why it didn't also create a new upscale brand as did Japanese rivals Toyota (Lexus), Honda (Acura) and Nissan (Infiniti). Then Hyundai followed with the larger, plusher full-luxury Equus, explaining again that creating a new brand was a long, expensive process that they didn't deem necessary. So this big, lavishly equipped car takes aim at premium sedans costing tens of thousands more. And, if it comes up a bit short of Germany's best in ultimate handling and feel, the 2014 Hyundai Equus has the style, performance, luxury and features to bring its value pitch to the flagship-sedan category, despite sharing its badge and showroom with Accents and Sonatas.

You'll Like This Car If...

If you feel you've reached a point where you deserve some pampering but don't feel the need to drop six digits of dollars on a luxury sedan, the 2014 Hyundai Equus may be for you. Hyundai's "At Your Service" program includes free maintenance for five years/60,000 miles.

You May Not Like This Car If...

While the 2013 Hyundai Equus luxury sedan's price may be right, the label is decidedly not designer. For those who place a premium on brand-name recognition, the Hyundai Equus nametag might not (yet) make the grade with the country-club set.

What's New for 2014

The Hyundai Equus luxury sedan is substantially freshened for 2014 with minor exterior changes, major interior upgrades, and a host of new comfort, convenience and safety features.

Driving It Driving Impressions

No one will mistake the dynamics of the Hyundai Equus with those of an Audi A8, a BMW 7 Series or a Mercedes-Benz S-Class, but most buyers probably won't care. The cabin is amazingly quiet, and its air-suspension eliminates road imperfections while providing a secure feel through the turns. The Equus holds its line well in corners and is more than capable of managing its substantial weight on twisty roads, but there's more float and isolation than in the German flagships. Steering feel is good in "Normal" mode, higher-effort (but no more feel) in "Sport" mode, and there's substantial steering kickback when cornering over humps and bumps. Other complaints: no 12V outlet for dash-top devices on the instrument panel (only in the console box), and the audio system won't retain your iPod's "Random" setting so needs to be reset each time you turn it on or change sources.

Favorite Features

Who wouldn't love the ability to recline in a car with your feet up and watch a movie while someone else drives?

While the 2014 Hyundai Equus sedan's 17 speakers might seem like overkill, we applaud the superb sound quality of the system, which completes the luxurious in-cabin experience.
