The only thing i dont really like about the Quoris is the front grill. It looks like a puzzle piece. Although the front light assembly is quite a work of art consisting of 16 mini projectors on each side and it adjust to the road.

headlights on the new Equus reminds me a lot of the headlights on the Toyota Crown, very similar shape going on. Maybe Hyundai copied the Crown? hmmm....

The Equus seems much more powerful. I wonder why KIA went with a much smaller engine.

and yet i thought hood ornaments were too old school for new cars to have them. I don't like how they placed it here.

My opinion.... the hood ornament would look better when placed right at the edge of the hood to meet the grille.

Not going to lie the hood ornament and headlights of the new 2014 Equus makes it more interesting than the Quoris.

This Equus would seem a lot more powerful. We question precisely why KIA proceeded to go using a significantly smaller motor.
