Hyundai HCD-14 Concept Car Tipped to Rival Audi A7

Car will be officially unveiled next week

Audi builds its automobiles to such a high level of fit and finish that many other manufacturers target Audi when they want to take their vehicles upscale. Over the last few years, Hyundai has been working hard to turn its vehicles into something desirable rather than the cheap and ugly economy cars the brand started out producing.

The Hyundai HCD-14 concept car has been teased and from what we can tell from the single image, it will be a very nice-looking vehicle indeed. Reports indicate that the vehicle could be aiming at the Audi A7. Those are some tall shoes to fill, if in fact that's what Hyundai is trying to do it all.

The concept car will be officially unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show in about a week. At that point, we should get all the details we can stand. I hope the vehicle will be more than a pure concept car, I'd like to see Hyundai offer some intriguing models.

2015 Dodge Challenger First Drive

Jul 21 2014 1:51pm CDT | Source: Cars.com

The latest Ford Mustang is powered by a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The next Chevrolet Camaro is rumored to be smaller, lighter and likely powered by a four-cylinder engine. But when Dodge updated the Challenger coupe for 2015, its new addition wasn't a four-cylinder engine — it was the tire-smoking SRT Hellcat model, powered by a jaw-dropping 707-horsepower, supercharged V-8. That ...

Small Trunks in Midsize Hybrid Sedans Limit Usefulness

The 2011 Kia Optima Hybrid is revealed a
Family-friendly hybrids are still more elusive than you'd think. My test of the 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid proved that hybrid midsize sedans can be a great option for small families that don't haul a lot of stuff in the car's trunk. Alternatively, they also merit careful consideration if those families carry around a lot of gear. 2014 Honda Accord Hybrid Review In the Accord Hybrid, as in its competitors, the hybrid system's ...
