The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
8.2
9.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Hyundai Equus is a well-priced limousine, while the German competition still has it beat for those who want to pilot their own barge. With the addition of a beautiful, expressive new Coupe, the 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class is no longer just the best sedan in the world; it's now a family of flagship models.
