It is the largest automobile manufacturer in South Korea, the second largest automaker in Asia after Toyota and the world's fourth largest automaker after General Motors, Volkswagen Group, and Toyota in 2011.[1] The group was formed through the purchase of 51% of South Korea's second-largest car company, Kia Motors, by Hyundai Motor Company in 1998. As of December 31, 2013, Hyundai owns 33.88%[2] of Kia Motors.

It is the 2nd largest South Korean chaebol or conglomerate, after Samsung Group, related to other Hyundai-name industries following a specialized development split and restructuring which resulted in Hyundai Motor group, Hyundai Heavy Industries group, Hyundai Development group, Hyundai Department group, and Hyundai Marine and Fire Insurance group.
