The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
9.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Hyundai Equus gets even closer to what discerning luxury-car shoppers want—even if it still doesn't have the cachet. The 2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class makes an emotional appeal for its claim as the best sedan in the world, and we're feeling it.
