China-Exclusive Hyundai Mistra Sedan Unveiled In Shanghai [Photos]
Hyundai has taken the wraps off the Mistra concept sedan, their first-ever China-exclusive model.
Known as Mingtu in Chinese, the all-new Hyundai Mistra is a joint project of the carmaker’s Beijing Technical Center and South Korean research and development center.
The Mistra concept made its official premiere at the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show, where it was put on display alongside the Grand Santa Fe SUV, ix35 Fuel Cell vehicle, Sonata Hybrid and HCD-14 concept vehicle.
According to Hyundai, the Mistra concept is a mid-size sedan which has an overall length of 4,710 mm, overall width of 1,820 mm and overall height of 1,470 mm.
It features a 2,770 mm-long wheelbase, which positions the model in-between the Hyundai Elantra Langdong and Hyundai Sonata.
Style-wise, the new concept vehicle from Hyundai Motor Company looks pretty attractive and almost production-ready.
Riding on a set of stylish 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels, the concept vehicle incorporates large chrome signature grille, unique headlamp design and LED day-time running lights.
Hyundai Mistra also boasts long hood, sleek daylight opening side window and sloping side character lines which provide the car a sporty look.
The voluminous rear bumper, with its two-tone color, adds a sporty image, while the futuristic full-LED rear combination lamps give it a sophisticated look.
Hyundai Mistra is scheduled to hit the Chinese market later this year with a choice of 1,8L and 2,0L foru-cylinder engines.
Pricing will be announced closer to its release date, but you can expect the prices to range from 140.000 yuan to 180.000 yuan ($22,600 to $29,000).
