unveiled a new strategic model for the Chinese market at the 2018 Beijing International Automotive Exhibition (Auto China 2018).
Beijing Hyundai Motor Co., Hyundai’s Chinese venture, premiered the Lafesta, which features powerful driving performance packaged in stylish design, as a landmark addition to the aggressively expanding Hyundai line-up in China.
The Lafesta, which translates to ‘Festival’ in Italian, is a high-performance sporty sedan designed to meet the dynamic and passionate demands of a new mainstream generation from the 80s and 90s.
When it arrives in the Chinese market during the fourth quarter of the year, it will offer a smart experience to Chinese customers through its design.
Lafesta will be powered by a 1.6-litre turbo GDi engine twinned with a seven-speed dual clutch transmission.
On the inside the spacious cockpit environment is driver focused and designed to deliver an engaging drive, but also features practical ergonomics and quality materials.
Keeping all occupants safe, the Lafesta features the most advanced and safest driving assistance systems. Further details will be disclosed in due course, following the official launch later this year.
