2015 Hyundai Equus Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

The Equus is neither efficient nor a gas-guzzler when judged against other large, rear-drive sedans. Gas mileage is a lower priority than luxury in the Hyundai Equus, but given its relative discount status, it may still factor into the decision.

The 2015 Equus receives EPA-estimated fuel economy of 15 miles per gallon city and 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. Hyundai does build hybrid vehicles, but no such model is planned for the Equus lineup.

Even with an eight-speed automatic, the Equus' big V-8 just isn't very miserly with fuel.

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