Hyundai EQUUS vs. BMW 7 Series
When it comes to the battle of large luxury sedans, a newcomer has joined in form of the Hyundai Equus.
Featuring all of the specifications of cars with six-figure price tags, there is no denying it has tremendous value for dollar.
But you have to take a step back and remember, you can also pick up some pretty hot rides for the same cost as an all-new Hyundai Equus. Take, for example, the BMW 7-Series.
With that said, we're a bit curious. If it was your hard-earned cash being invested into a large luxury sedan, which would you pick up?
The all-new Hyundai Equus OR a used BMW 750i? WHICH and WHY?
Hyundai has introduced a September 2011 Specialty lease program on their flagship sedan the Equus. The $739/monthly payment immediately took me by surprise. Equus list pricing is $58,900 for the Signature Edition and $65400 for the Ultimate. My initial reaction …”That kind of money will get you an awfully nice Pre-Owned BMW.”
Wondering how many other potential buyers would have a similar reaction I set out to find just what is available for the Hyundai list prices.
