Kia K900 v. Hyundai Equus
The lease on my '15 Hyundai Genesis Ultimate sedan will be ending soon, and I'm thinking of buying a '14 or '15 Equus or K900 to replace it.
They are both very nice cars, and they're both selling for similar money at this point.
OK, I know the people on this forum will be just a little biased, but what are your thoughts? Do you know of any advantages of one over the other? Did you look at the Equus before you bought or leased your K900?
I'm actually leaning towards a '15 Equus Ultimate at this point; convince me that I'm wrong.
I know it's ridiculous, but I really don't like the chrome doohicky that Kia put on the flanks of the 1st generation K900, but if there's a rational reason to get the Kia over the Hyundai, I can overlook that.
I've been spoiled by the Genny, and I've got to have active cruise control and a HUD, which only comes on the Ultimate Equus. Do they come with the base K900?
What I'd really like to do is lease a new '19 K900, but I don't think I could swing that financially, what with being newly retired and with 2 kids getting ready to go to college.
I love the car I have now, and I have contemplated buying it, but the residual value at lease end is crazy expensive. I suppose I could buy another '15 or '16 Genesis, but, eh... been there, done that.
I got a helluva deal on my lease 3 years ago: $3k down and $334 per month. For a $52000 new car!
And of course I'd like to get a similar killer deal on its replacement.
