Bentley Mulsane versus... Hyundai Equus? – Click above to watch video after the jump

With the launch of the all-new Equus, Hyundai has taken another step towards the deep end of the luxury car segment. However, Bentley has a touch more experience in this arena and its new Mulsanne is decadence on wheels. The two companies sit on opposite ends of the automotive spectrum, but Motor Trend seems to think they warrant a comparison. We suspect Bentley will not be pleased...

Two of MT's scribes hop into the back of both the Equus and the Mulsanne for a chat about the two luxury sedans, and one of them is none other than Autoblog alum Jonny Lieberman, decked out in his fancy new buff-book duds (the other is MT stalwart Ed Loh). Both vehicles pack a fair amount of amenities, but the difference between $70,000 and $330,000 (with $42k in options) is patently obvious. Just check out the cupholders. So, grab some pâté and a jar of Grey Poupon and check out the video after the jump.

      Both cars are transportation "jewelry". They are for people needing a shot of self-esteem because they fear obscurity.

      Here is a better explanation:


      What is luxury?

      Luxury car buyers are badge buyers, but what about livery services? I would not mind riding in this.

      any self respecting aristocrat wouldnt be caught dead in a Hyundai no matter how cheap or frugal .... i mean really? just cuz they build it doesnt make it right!

      I like this great heretic idea to compare horse with pony. (Have I said pony)? Sorry Hyundai,who really cares about the past... Past, I am sorry Bentley, you shouldn't lay on old laurels... Shortly talking, there are two very similar products (what infidelity!) in terms quality, options, luxury. But there are two absolutely different worlds in terms image, traditions and ... money! What you can not buy with money, you'll buy it with big money!

      Absolutely moronic comment.

      Their resale values aren't rock bottom, neither are they that poor. There are quite a few below them. If Hyundais were junk, they wouldn't have the highest customer retention rate/return buyers in the industry.
