One of the best Korean cars brands is Hyundai. The company was founded in the year 1967 by the owner of Hyundai Engineering and Construction Company, Chung Ju-Yung. The official Head Quarter of Hyundai Automobiles is located in Seoul, South Korea. The first car launched by Hyundai was the Cortina and the company got sufficient assistance from the American automobile company Ford Motors, a year after its establishment.
They initially hired some British engineers to develop their own car model without direct assistance from any foreign company. In the year 1975, they came into the market with Pony which is reputed as the first Korean car and the car was widely accepted in South Korea. It took Hyundai a decade to start exporting Pony to other countries and they started with Canada.
