I bought the 2014 Equus Signature, black with tan interior, just a great car. I shopped the Mercedes S550, BMW 750 and the Lexus 460 before making my decision on this purchase. Realistically there is no comparison, this car rocks the competition. The interior of the Equus is awesome, the seats are exceptionally comfortable, the controls are nicely positioned and the stereo is tremendous. The interior amenities are as they should be in a car of this class. The fit and finish is comparable to the cars costing $40K more. The performance is similar to both the S550 and the BMW 750 in acceleration, the ride is more closely related to the S550. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a car. UPDATE- The car currently has 46K miles and seems to only get better. The car has not had a single issue( knock on wood), I still can't say enough about this car. Keep up the great work.

This car rides like a dream! Gas mileage is acceptable in the city and good on the highway. Comfort visibility and performance are great! Shift to Sport if you need power and handling shift back to Eco mode for normal driving. The snow mode works well. Sound system is excellent. This a great car especially if you buy it used with low miles. It is a luxury car and as such is not meant as a commuter car. At high speeds it floats and feel safe. Buy an extended warranty to cover all the toys and talk to your dealer nicely and they will support you. You will love this car. To repeat its a dream to drive. Made 3 trips to Florida at 25 hours each way. Great performance. Update: trim issues. Performance and ride till anazing!

This car is phenomenal. Hyundai Equus Ultimate SPEED: The 429 hp can really be felt. You can take off the traction control and put into sports mode and it'll really jump! DRIVER MODE: Normal, Sport & Snow DRIVER DISPLAY: The heads-up display shows current speed, cruise speed, lane departure lines & blindside warnings and GPS directional arrows with mileage. SMART CRUISE: The smart cruise control is ideal in those traffic jams. LIGHTS: The headlights curve as you turn. The fog lights add more visibility. The rear indicator lights are brighter and yellow. SIDE MIRRORS: When parking the side mirror automatically fold in (you can also manually fold them in too). When in reverse you have a rear camera, bird's eye view and the side mirrors automatically rotate downwards to see the lines for parking. They also automatically defrost and have yellow indicator lights on the front. WELCOMING: When you walk to the car when it's locked there are lights below the side mirror which light up & fold out before you unlock the doors (without removing the key or having to press a key). When you open from the passenger side or rear doors all the doors will unlock. Once inside you feel all the affects of luxury. The Equus logo appears on the driver display and plays some music. Once you start the vehicle the same logo appears on the large screen. SCREENS: A large screen in the front and two 9.8" for the passengers. They are located on the back of the driver and front passenger's headrest. CHARGING: You have two cigarette chargers in the front armrest and two in the rest seat armrest. There is also a USB port SHADES: The rear shades and rear passenger shade are all automatic. The side door shades actually descend into the door when they are pressed down (by the window button). DOORS: If they are closed with a slight gap the doors will automatically pull them in for a full close. They are solid and heavy doors. SEATS: Power seats are adjusted from the door panels. The driver does have 2 memory options that can be set. Also all seats (except the rear middle seat) have a/c and heating for your bum. This is in the leather perforated seats. The front passenger seat can be adjusted by pressing buttons on the left side of the chair (can be initiated by the driver or the rear passengers). AUTO HOLD: This button allows you to take your foot off the brake. It will be released once you push on the accelerator. Nice option for city driving. TRUNK: Find it very large. Hold two golf bags and two sports duffle bags. Also is a power trunk controlled by the key, below the steering wheel and on the trunk. RIMS & WHEELS: 19" rims with great finish & the logo. The rear tires are wider than the front two tires. It is REAR wheel drive. SOUND: 17 speakers that is a 598 watt Lexicon 7.1 Discrete Surround (there is a youtube about it's quality). This is an absolutely fun ride!

Solid car and fun drive for less $$$

Bought a used 2014 Equus signature and all I can say is wow baby! I have owned 2 Audi A8s, MB E500, 650i conv BMW, 2017 mustang gt conv, and I do not miss any of them. The power from the Equus V8 is more than enough to satisfy my cravings for quick acceleration from any speed. 0 to 60, or 45 to 70, or 75 to 100 mph, this baby can get you there quickly in total comfort. I am 6ft2 and my singular and I mean singular complaint is the driver legroom when the seat is raised higher. If I lower the seat, no problem, but after 2 back surgeries, sometimes I need to raise it up some. Legroom is still adequate, but I do like to stretch out sometimes on highway long rides. Fuel economy is better than listed if you don't drag race at every stoplight. I we not from VA beach to Tampa, Fl and back. Almost 2600 miles in 4 days and I averaged 27.2 mpg at an average speed of 77 mph. Much better than its advertised mpg. Sound system is great with the 14 speaker lexicon system. I have the rear entertainment package and heads up display, blind side detection and adaptive cruise control. When I drive it, i remember the comfort and road poise I felt in my Audi A8s. Better reliability with Hyundai for much less. Miss the AWD, but doubt I will need that in Florida. I have a GMC Denali for the crappy weather days. Speaking of my Denali with active noise cancellation which is AWESOME! :), the Equus is pretty darn quiet too at highway speeds. If you are looking for a solid luxury car without the German reliability nightmare and high cost of ownership, I highly recommend the Equus. It's big and long, but so is the Audi A8L, MB S class, Jaguar XJL, and the Acura RLX. I test drove them all several times, and I would still pick the Equus over all of them. Besides, depending on where you live, there are not too many Audi, MB, Jaguar and Acura dealerships so your towing expense is going to be high. Finally, if you like to drive something that everybody does not have or know someone who has, then the Equus is for you. The reviews are great and the car is a solid, well built machine. Your money, but why waste it on something that will spend more time in the shop than your garage and you will trade as soon as the warranty expires.

I previously owned a 2013 Hyundai Equus & unfortunately lost it after loosing a 10 year job due to layoffs. I became ill in August of 2017 & homeless by Dec 2018. I really loved my car...the look, the ride, the style was so amazing. It didn't matter where I went so many people complimented it's beauty. I don't know if you've ever experienced the ride, but I long for the opportunity to own another. I don't know why Hyundai changed the body style in it's newer models, but there isn't any comparison. If you are able to test drive the older model in your state, please let them know this Marine Vet sent you... Dwayne
