This is why these two automotive powerhouses are perfect candidates to go head-to-head in this challenging automotive quiz!

This creates a real East versus West challenge in this quiz; however, these large brands have obviously produced vehicles for markets all around the world as well.  Hyundai is less that half the age of Chevrolet, with barely 50 years of history, compared to over a century worth of experience by Chevrolet.
