Hyundai, a subsidiary of the South Korean automobile manufacturer KIA, is one of the top three luxury automakers in the world. The company name is derived from the surname of its founder, Chung Ju-yung. “Horch” means “listen” in German, and Hyundai is the Latin word for listen. But you shouldn’t invest in a Hyundai based on clever wordplay. You should own a Hyundai because you care about investing in quality.
