Hyundai Equus: 15/23 mpg, 18 mpg combined

Gas mileage is a lower priority than luxury in the Hyundai Equus, which comes in a sole drivetrain configuration--unlike the cars it names as competition.

The 2014 Equus posts EPA-certified fuel economy of 15 miles per gallon city, 23 miles per gallon highway, or 18 mpg combined. Its sole source of power is a 5.0-liter V-8, and since it's coupled to an eight-speed automatic, the numbers are about as good as they can get.

In real-world use, we've seen as much as 18 mpg in a mix of canyon runs and interstate strafes.

Hyundai has other hybrid vehicles, but no such model is planned for the Equus lineup.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
