2015 Kia K900: Compared to Hyundai Equus

November 26, 2014

 2015 Kia K900

Our long-term 2015 Kia K900 and the Hyundai Equus are cousins. Aside from the fact that the Hyundai has the optional air suspension, the two cars are pretty much equal. I would argue that the Kia has a better looking exterior, but that is a matter of taste.

A few of you have asked why we are testing the K900 after having an Equus in our fleet. Well, for one thing, our long-term Equus was the 2011 model. Hyundai gave the Equus a major refresh in 2014, so they are not exactly the same. And we wanted to see how Kia handles the luxury proposition.

While most of the specifications for these two cars are the same, there are some minor distinctions. You can look at them side by side in our comparison tool. In this chart, I've picked out the areas where they differ:
