Hyundai HCD-14 Concept Car Tipped to Rival Audi A7

Jan 7 2013, 1:19pm CST | by

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.

The Pre-Owned 400 Club: 5 Ways to Get 400 Horsepower (or More) for $20,000

We live in a world where 200 horsepower is economy-car fare, 300 horsepower is mildly interesting, and 400 horsepower is the minimum needed to command many enthusiasts’ attention. Big horsepower is affordable, too, if you know where to look. In the past decade, the world has seen its share of 400-hp cars, and they’ve now depreciated into the realm of attainability. At $20,000 or so, however, they’re not giveaways, and with as many as 100,000 miles on their odometers, they’re definitely ...

Rumormill: Facelifted Hyundai Veloster to get new 7-speed DCT, Flex Steer

Oct 29 2014 2:59pm CDT | Source: Autoblog

Filed under: Hatchback, Hyundai, Rumormill, Design/Style No matter how you look at it, the Hyundai Veloster is an odd duck. With the vehicle's weird door configuration and styling that kind of looks like a modernized Honda CRX, the model is certainly unlike anything else on the road today. Since spotting one testing earlier this year (pictured above), we know that a refreshed version is on the way eventually, ...
