New Hyundai Celesta showcased at Guangzhou Auto Show


Hyundai has unveiled an all-new sedan called Celesta at the ongoing 2016 Guangzhou Auto Show in China. A first set of spy shots of this new sedan had surfaced a few days ago. This new sedan is positioned above the Verna and below the Elantra in Hyundai’s line-up.

The Hyundai Celesta sedan gets styling based on Hyundai’s popular Fluidic Sculpture 2.0 design language. The design platform is also shared the all-new India-bound Verna sedan and the already available in India Elantra. The incoming sedan is 4,510mm long, 1,756mm high and 1,470 mm. It gets a 2,650mm wheelbase which makes it 50mm longer than the new 2017 Verna and 25mm shorter than the current-gen Elantra.

There is no news on the engine bit but expect the Celesta to come with a 1.6-litre 120hp motor for the Chinese market. There is no word on an India launch yet, however, Hyundai is likely to bring in the next-gen Verna to India in 2017.
