About This Quiz

Acura and Hyundai may hail from the same continent, but they are totally different when we get down to specifics. To some, all cars may look alike, which is why we've got a series of quizzes testing your knowledge to see if you can tell us the makes of certain vehicles. To make it easier for you, we've chosen two brands and it's your job to correctly guess which one comes from which company. To help you out a bit, here's some history of the two brands. 

Acura is a Japanese luxury marque whose parent company happens to be Honda. It is the first luxury car brand in Japan and became a top-seller in the United States. Acura is known for its precision, which is why it has many slogans speaking of just that- and one of the reasons why it sold over 150, 000 models last year. Hyundai, on the other hand, is Korean and is the third largest auto manufacturer in the world. They own Genesis Motors and a portion of Kia Motors and own the largest manufacturing facility of any other auto brand. 

Now that you know a bit more about the two companies, it's time to see whether you've got the chops to ace this quiz. Let's find out right now!
