EPS is no doubt a lot better when we consider urban commute, with signals, traffic and rush etc. The car is easily manuverable, easy to turn etc etc. The electric motor uses algorithms and sensors to conrol the amount of wheel to be turned.
hydraulic is more enjoyable (for some) as you can feel (lol @ feel but seriously :D) your control on the tires as it is directly related to the amount of force you apply on the steering and remains constant with the pressure. As mentioned earlier try this on a winding road, hps will always be true as compared to EPS.
Also to mention, the fun of HPS with stiff suspension is more with a rear wheel driven car (a hard ride none the less). in an FWD hydraulic sometimes become a bit too stiff as front wheels have to both steer and pull the car at the same time.
Most performance car donot even have an HPS system but direct naked steering, its mostly to reduce weight but also an aspect is true (but hard) steering.
One factor doesn't make a car good or bad. Its the multiple factors and the objective of the car which matter.
A car with stiffer suspension, HPS will give better stability but on the cost of comfort and relaxation, in the same was a car with soft suspension and EPS will be a lot better in urban commute but can be deceptive in handling.
WOW. thats a lot
