Hyundai successfully entered the U.S. market as a low-cost competitor, became established, and has even started to offer an affordable luxury model. And now a recent J.D. Power report listing them as the No. 1 non-premium auto maker in terms of perceived quality, ahead of previous frontrunner Toyota.
But when you’re known for being the cheap option, how to you re-educate the market? (While Hyundai’s products are not of the disruptive variety, I’m interested in this challenge because it confronts the typical disruptive innovator.) This Gazelle vs. Lion 30-second commercial from The Richards Group should definitely help.
