2013 Hyundai Equus Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

The 2013 Hyundai Equus is a very thirsty luxury car--and one of the few models for which we've seen ratings drop in recent years. And Hyundai has no plans for a hybrid or diesel.

Last year, Hyundai dropped the more fuel-efficient 4.6-liter V-8 for a new 5.0-liter version of the same engine, this one making 429 horsepower; EPA ratings went down 1 mpg overall, to 15/23 mpg (and we've struggled to meet those estimates in real-world testing).

Nearly every other large luxury sedan gets better mileage than the 2013 Hyundai Equus.

It's fair to say that some large luxury-sedan shoppers aren't at all thinking about gas mileage, however.
