Hyundai Elantra Long-Wheelbase Version Heading For China Soon

Hyundai is modifying the Elantra for China, the largest auto market in the world with 18.9 million cars sold in 2011. But there is no prize for correctly guessing the impending changes. Like many before it, the Elantra will gain a couple of extra inches of legroom to appeal to the growing class of middle-class Chinese buyers who are looking for plenty of space and a premium appearance in a mass-market car like the Elantra.

The revised Elantra is expected to be slightly longer and taller, and may feature exterior tweaks to create a more premium impression. The new car will be built in Hyundai's new USD 1 billion facility in Beijing—the Seoul-based car maker's third in China—which will be key to boosting Hyundai's local production capacity to one million vehicles annually. The extra production capacity is needed to keep up with the demand, a necessary move if Hyundai wants to keep pace with the brands ahead: namely, General Motors, Volkswagen, Nissan and Toyota.

But it's never easy for him to talk and write cars in this part of the world because what you lust after is often not what you drive home. When the euphoria of test-driving that branded, super-expensive sports car dies down, he just goes home in his less-than-glamorous ride.
