Best bargain cars at the New York auto show

2014 Hyundai Equus
2014 Hyundai Equus
  • Estimated MSRP: $60,170 to $67,170 (Car and Driver)

What? Why did we choose a premium luxury sedan as a "bargain" car? Because while most of us think $60,000 isn't a bargain at all, for those looking at similar vehicles, such as the Audi A8, BMW 7-Series or the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, this car is a steal. Prices on comparable cars run from $75,000 to $100,000 or more. The Equus offers all the features of a high-class sedan for tens of thousands less -- making it a bargain in its class.

The 2014 Hyundai Equus has a sporty redesign, with black-out finishes on the thinner lines of the chrome grille, new LED fog lights and side mirrors made with better aerodynamics.

The interior has higher-grade materials than the previous model, with premium luxury design elements, including a new layout for the steering wheel controls and a redesigned instrument panel and center stack to improve ergonomics. Rear-seat passengers get a new rear console and button layout, with available rear seatbacks including 9.2-inch video screens to watch movies, operate audio, control seat and climate functions, and even perform searches and send navigation directions directly to the driver's screen.

The Equus is powered by a 429-horsepower five-liter V-8 engine and uses a rear-wheel-drive system similar to its competitors. Features include three-zone climate control, power closing doors, smart cruise control with stop-start feature, power lumbar in the rear seats, blind-spot detection and rear cross-traffic alert systems.
