Honda is Japanesse, Hyundai is Korean.
Hyundai makes cheap cars. Honda used to make inexpensive and efficient cars but now they are more like all the other ones: less efficient and more expensive. The quality has always been pretty good in my opinion, and that's how they took a big bite out of the American manufacturers' asses who were making shit cars in the 80s.
Honda also has many other products with gas engines like generators, lawn mowers, all-terrain vehicles, motorcycles, etc..

LOL! Hmm. Well, aside from Honda being Japanese and Hyundai being Korean...let's just say we're talking HUGE differences in build quality, reliability, resale value, value-per-dollar, comfort, style, and class.
I have to admit, Hyundai has improved HUGELY since the days of their first model, the Excel, a two-, four- and five-door model which sold for under $6,000 new. Many of them required new engines within the first year of being on the road, a problem that Honda never seemed to encounter. And having owned a Honda, as well as driven various Hondas and Hyundais I detailed over the years, I think Hyundai has never been able to compare with Japanese cars in terms of quality.

Strange question. These companies are totally differents.
Honda cars are good and expensive.
Hyundai cars are better and better and quite cheap.
The reliability problem of Hyundai seems to be solved. They now make good cars, with excellent design. But that's true, it's hard to resale.

The only serious downside to a Hyundai is poor resale value, but that seems to be coming around as well. Plus if you plan on keeping the car more than 3 or 4 years, resale value becomes more and more negligible. Quality is certainly up to par with the Japanese manufacters, and you generally get more product and content for the buck than with a Japanese car. Plus they offer the best warranty in the industry... which should be worth something, at least the cost of an extended warranty.

I was certainly impressed by Hyundai at the last car show I went to (in January) but saying that their quality is comparible to, say, a Toyota, is not true. Although it might look nice on the inside and out, the materials they use are cheap and flimsy.

The Diffrence is HONDAS ARE AWESOME!
I haven't really ever heard anything good about Hyundai's! I definately think Honda quality is superior, and the resale value is awesome! My family has owned/leased a lot of Honda's, and all were trouble free (except the windshield wipers have always been crapy, and Honda owners notice this?)
