Spy Shots of Beijing-Hyundai’s New Compact Sedan, Placed above Elantra



Hyundai-Kia China has been developing a new model that will occupy the space between Elantra/K3 and Sonata/K5. In the Kia lineup, the new compact sedan will be called, naturally, the K4, as we learned late last year from Dongfeng-Yueda-Kia. Scheduled to go on sale next year, the Kia K4 has so far been hidden from public view. Yet, Sina Auto exposed today the un-named Hyundai version of it.

The spied Hyundai model has a wheelbase estimated at around 2750mm, compared with the 2700mm on the fifth-gen Elantra (called Langdong in China) and the 2795mm on Sonata. Its body length nears 4700mm.

The main engine option will be the Nu G4NB 1.8 liter, found on two top versions of the Elantra. It can develop up to 107kW of power and 175Nm of torque, and will be mated to either a 6MT or 6AT. Two other likely engine choices will be the 2.0 liter from Sonata (Nu G4NA) and the 1.6T from Veloster.

Beijing-Hyundai currently makes three generations of Elantra ("Elantra," "Yuedong," "Langdong"), whose prices range from 80,000 Yuan to 140,000 Yuan. The new compact, positioned above them, is expected to sell for 140,000–170,000 Yuan. Its main rivals will include VW Sagitar and Citroen C4L.

As Beijing-Hyundai is eager to expand its product line to meet the target of selling 1 million cars in 2013, there is a chance for the new model to hit the market before year-end.

Headlights kind of look like Elantra lights. Too little detail to figure out how the rest of the car looks. 470cm body length. What's the body length on the Elantra?
