Hyundai is previewing an upcoming family sedan designed specifically for China with the Mistra concept at the Shanghai Auto Show. The car has an uncanny resemblance to the Azera, and it is accompanied by another Chinese model, the Grand Santa Fe premium SUV.
Tailor-made to meet the requirements of the Chinese drivers, the Mistra has an overall length of 4,710 mm, overall width of 1,820 mm and overall height of 1,470 mm, as well as a 2,770 mm-long wheelbase. It also has 19-inch aluminum alloy wheels. The concept also sports a special jade green body colour, called Frost Jade. Hyundai says the car is designed to appeal to its main target customers, who they reckon are young parents in their 20s and 30s.
The Grand Santa Fe is an elongated version of the global market model, boasting an overall length of 4,915mm, overall width of 1,885mm, overall height of 1,690mm, and a 2,800mm wheelbase. It is 225 mm longer than the Santa Fe, and offers 630 liters of cargo space.
Also on display at Hyundai’s booth at the Shanghai show are the ix35 Fuel Cell, and Sonata Hybrid, as well as its in-vehicle IT service, Blue Link, and also the face-lifted Equus Limousine and HCD-14 Genesis concept.
