Don’t get it wrong, it turns out that this is how to read the correct Hyundai


Not only Europe, car brands from South Korea are also difficult to pronounce. In fact, until now, there are still many Indonesians who do not understand how to read Hyundai correctly. So, so that the detikers don’t go along with the mistake, let’s see this article until it’s finished.

Disitat detikOto from the official Hyundai website, Friday (11/18/2022), Hyundai as an automotive manufacturer was founded in 1967. Their first product was the result of a collaboration with Ford Motor, namely the Hyundai Cortina. The vehicle went on sale in 1968.

Currently, Hyundai is one of the Korean four-wheel manufacturers with the highest sales in the world. In fact, the company founded by Chung Ju-yung is slowly being able to approach sales of well-known Japanese brands such as Toyota, Honda and Suzuki.

In Indonesia, Hyundai is often included in the list of 10 car brands with the highest sales. Not only conventional cars, their sales are also supported by electric vehicles.

Unfortunately, even though the level of popularity is quite high, there are still many Indonesians who don’t know how to read Hyundai correctly.

How to Read Hyundai

In Korean, Hyundai means modernity or future. That is why, the vehicles they sell have an average ‘bold’ model and seem unusual. While the slogan is New Thinking, New Possibilities or ‘new thinking, new possibilities’.

Currently, Indonesians are used to calling Hyundai ‘hiyunday’. In fact, the brand should be read ‘handey’ without the letter ‘Y’ in front. The way to read ‘handey’ is almost the same as when we spell ‘sunday’.

However, as we know, the human tongue is different. In England, some read Hyundai as ‘hay an dey’ as if each syllable were written separately. While those who understand and are familiar with English, on average, read ‘hyan dey’.

Apart from Hyundai, another brand from South Korea, KIA, is also often mispronounced. Not kiya, the mark should read kee-ah in English and ki-ah in Indonesian.
