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.

“How now, turbo Tau?” That, presumably, is the question Hyundai hopes show goers will ask when it pulls the wraps off of the Steel Phoenix at the upcoming 2014 SEMA Show. Conceived by Toca Marketing Group, the hopped-up Genesis with a bad-ass name features a twin-turbocharged version of Hyundai’s 5.0-liter Tau V-8 pumping out 600 horsepower. A 180-hp bump over the stock 2015 Genesis 5.0′s output isn’t something to sniff at, folks.  To get to that huge horsepower figure—big, but not Dodge ...
