Hyundai Information:Chung Ju Yung founded Hyundai Motor Company of South Korea in 1967 and by 1968, the company was taken under the wing of American automotive giant Ford. The duo signed a two-year contract to share assembly technology, according to Edmunds, but Hyundai did not enter the U.S. market until 1986. Its first American car, the compact Excel, sold more than 100,000 units in the first seven months. The Sonata was introduced shortly after, but the brand's popularity was short-lived.
Hyundai gained a reputation for producing low-quality vehicles and sales plummeted. So the company focused on making improvements to the quality and design of its lineup. At the turn of the century, the South Korean automaker introduced the Elantra, which was a shining example of the efforts the company had made to improve, and the brand began to see success once again. These days, the Elantra and the Sonata are both very popular. Hyundai also offers two other compact cars - the Veloster and the Accent - as well as crossover SUVs - the Tucson, Santa Fe and Veracruz.
