Hyundai has taken the wraps off a new sedan at the Beijing motor show, the Lafesta. The model, only to be sold in China for now, is based on the Hyundai Elantra, though it features a different suspension set-up.
The car’s styling takes more than a few design cues from the radical-looking Le Fil Rouge concept that was displayed just a month ago at the Geneva motor show. The Lafesta is a four-door sedan but sports a coupe-like swoopy roofline, and looks decidedly sporty. Expected to launch in China’s market by the end of this year, Hyundai plans to target younger affluent buyers with this model.
While the Le Fil Rouge concept was a larger-looking high-end model, the Lafesta, with its 4,660mm length and 2,700mm long wheelbase, is larger than the Elantra but smaller than the Sonata, and is expected to slot between the two in Hyundai’s China range.
It will be powered by two engine options – a 1.4-litre turbo-petrol and a 1.6-litre turbo-petrol – in varying states of tune from 130hp to 240hp. Both are paired to a seven-speed automatic transmission powering the front wheels.
While there is no word on Hyundai bringing the Lafesta to India, as the model is based on the Elantra sold here, it has potential for our market.
Do you think Hyundai should bring this model to India? Let us know in the comments below.

Apple CarPlay will finally get a much-awaited update that will see the inclusion of third-party navigation apps. The announcement was made at the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) in San Jose, California. The update will come later this year, and will allow the use of navigation apps like Google Maps, Waze and Here with Apple CarPlay.
The news is sure to be welcomed by Apple iPhone users, especially in India. Unlike other countries in the world where Apple CarPlay comes bundled with Apple Maps, in India, Apple’s phone projection system does not include any navigation service. Google’s Android Auto, on the other hand, has always featured Google Maps.
Maruti Suzuki took the lead with Apple CarPlay integration in India being the first to offer the feature on its Baleno hatchback. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity is becoming a common feature across cars in India, and for many, even an important deciding factor.
