Drivers, start your engines! Are you ready to take a ride around the world? We're heading from Dearborn, Michigan, across the globe to Seoul, South Korea. So put your lead foot down and away we go!
Did you know that the Ford Motor Company was founded in 1903? It was also one of the first manufacturers of cars in the United States. Now let's go 64 years into the future and along comes Hyundai in 1967. You might there was no competition between the two, but Hyundai has certainly made a name for itself in the industry. Today, Ford and Hyundai are fierce competitors. The competition drives deep. So deep in fact that in the United States alone, both companies have cars on Car and Driver's "Bestselling Cars in America" list!
And the competition doesn't stop there. Ford and Hyundai consistently compete in the buyer's market. There's the Fusion vs. the Sonata, the Escape vs. the Tucson, the Fiesta vs. the Accent! All are assessed by consumers in the areas of performance, safety and visual appeal. And that is no easy task...
Now, performance and safety aside, do you think you have 'visual appeal' for the vehicles in this quiz? It's time to see how well you know your Fords from your Hyundais, and your Hyundais from your Fords. Head to the starting line and rev that engine! We're heading out in 3....2....1!
