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.

A rash of airbag recalls in October hasn't deterred car shoppers. Sales from seven largest automakers gained 5.8 percent in October, leading to an annualized rate that should top 16 million cars for the eighth month in a row.

October's Fastest-and Slowest-Selling Cars

Nov 3 2014 11:36am CST | Source: Cars.com

An all-new Ford Mustang is a rare thing indeed and that's why it's no surprise the redesigned pony car was the fastest-selling car in the country last month. New looks and a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine have made it a much-talked about commodity to be sure. But hold the phone.

A 708-hp Hyundai Sonata? Why, Yes, Have One

Nov 3 2014 10:44am CST | Source: Car and Driver

“Reliable power, guaranteed,” says Bisimoto, a tuner based in Ontario, California, east of Los Angeles. And that’s a good thing. Wouldn’t you be slightly concerned about squeezing 708 horsepower out of a rather pedestrian four-cylinder engine? The object of manipulation, in this case, is a Hyundai 2.4-liter Theta II engine, fitted in a Sonata four-door sedan. A Turbonetics TNX 82/64 turbocharger compl ...
