All-new Hyundai Mistranslating: new sedan for China

 




Hyundai will be introducing yet another sedan for the Chinese market. The new Mistra. 
Which seems quite conservative. Almost looking like a small Genesis G90 from some angles. With rear lights a little bit similar to the current Sonata and a grille from the previous one.

Interestingly enough, they will also introduce a full-electric version of the car (bottom pic)

You may recall Vince that you originally thought this was the next Elantra back in early 2019: https://www.burlappcar.com/2019/01/202021-hyundai-elantra.html

Quite conservative, but still looks more modern than the 2022 Civic. I actually like it more than the new Elantra.

Why does this look like they reskinned a 2006 Sonata?

It's actually the Second Generation, of a car which looked before more like a smalled down Sonata, so it's not all new, but nice cover, specially fond into the wordplay, I really like what you did with "Mistra" as Mistranslating, as a reference as from chinese we don't know always the exact translation ...

They need to get that front end on the catfish faced Sonata.

Why does this look like they slapped Hyundai front and rear ends onto a 2003 Ford Fusion?

Clever but the Ford Fusion wasn’t sold until model year 2006.
