The model Lafesta debuts at the 2019 Guangzhou Motor Show. It carries the new design approach called Sensuous Sportiness, but it will probably not reach other markets than China.
In the appearance, the full front grille and sleek headlights form an extraordinary setting for the new Hyundai. Well-defined creases mark the sides, and at the rear, the ceiling trim does not negate the project’s sporting footprint.
Also, the brand confirms that it has fitted the model with the latest driving assistance systems and the latest safety equipment. “China is evolving rapidly, and so are the attitudes of the Chinese people. They are more self-confident, positive, and creative. Lafesta will help us reflect this changing trend,” said Simon Loasby, director and chief design officer of Hyundai in China.
