Automotive design and production are big business. Do you think your knowledge has kept pace? Take this quiz to find out.
The automobile industry is one of the most competitive industries in the world. Because of the extreme level of competitiveness, and the changing demands of consumers, automotive design and production are big business. An automaker that fails to keep up with new trends -- heck, an automaker who fails to introduce new trends -- is an automaker that will likely not be around for very long. But, automakers know this. No one is going to launch a new car company with the assumption that they can make a car that will remain the same for very long. Designs have to change and the way cars are produced has to keep pace with the times. For this reason, car designs are being constantly updated. Some designs resonate well with consumers and some don't, but carmakers have to take a chance with their designs and either keep pace with consumer demand or blaze new trails and give car buyers features that they didn't even know they wanted ("need" is the word the industry likes to use, but no one really "needs" Sirius Radio in the car, do they).
Let's find out how much you really know about automotive design and production.
