First founded as a construction company in 1947 by businessman Chung Ju-yung, Hyundai today is recognized for its cars. Since building its first vehicle in 1976, Hyundai, which also owns fellow Korean badge Kia, has quickly risen to become one of the largest car makers in the world. With a name that literally translates as "modern," the South Korean brand has taken the concept to heart, becoming a global leader in budget-minded, fuel-efficient cars. In the past several years, Hyundai, known for its low-priced automobiles, has even dipped its toes into the luxury car market with a string of stately sedans that look poised to compete with high-end German models.
