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 2015 Kia K900 reaches for the luxury stars--and grabs a little Lexus and old-school Cadillac, though it falls well short of Audi. The Lexus LS is all about build quality and comfort for the long-haul, though its F Sport trim dials up the fun factor slightly.
