Styling updates have remained minimal and only appear to act as an easy way to differentiate the model from its globally produced sibling.

Hyundai has unveiled a Chinese market specific version of their Elantra sedan in Beijing. It has been renamed in Chinese language which is pronounced "Langdeng" and is roughly translated to mean "dynamic for the young, new generation."

Engine options include an entry level 1.6-liter engine producing 127PS (93kW/125hp) and 155Nm (114lb-ft) of torque as well as a 1.8-liter option with 146PS (107kW/144hp) and 174Nm (128lb-ft). Both of which feature Hyundai's Active ECO driving mode and are mated to a 6-speed manual or automatic transmission system.

Styling updates have remained minimal and only appear to act as an easy way to differentiate the model from its globally produced sibling. The most noticeable changes include a restyled grille and air intake on the front fascia.

The Hyundai Langdeng will be launched in China during the second half of 2012.
