The Hyundai lineup: features and equipment packages


From its humble beginnings to its current status as one of the world's top automobile manufacturers, Hyundai's journey is a testament to relentless drive, innovation, and adaptability.

Hyundai Motor Company was founded in 1967 by Chung Ju-yung in South Korea. It was an offshoot of the Hyundai Engineering and Construction Company, which Chung had established earlier in 1947.

Hyundai partnered with Ford in its initial years to produce the Cortina for the South Korean market. However, it wasn’t until 1975 that Hyundai came into its own with the introduction of the Hyundai Pony, Korea's first domestic car.

The 1980s saw Hyundai expanding beyond South Korea, starting with Canada and later entering the U.S. market. The Hyundai Excel, launched in the U.S. in 1986, was a game-changer, recording significant sales due to its affordability.

Over the years, Hyundai has developed a diverse range of engines, from fuel-efficient inline-4s to powerful V6s and V8s. Their focus has also diversified into hybrid, electric, and hydrogen fuel cell technologies. Read more
