These statistics only include sales data of the Celesta sedan and exclude sales of the Hyundai Celesta RV station wagon, which are published separately.
The Celesta is an updated version of the Elantra Yuedong (a fourth generation Elantra, first launched in 2006), which is also still sold in China, alongside the Elantra Langdon (fifth generation) and the latest generation called Elantra Lingdong. The Celesta was launched in 2017 and sits on the same platform as the Yuedong. They didn’t even bother to give it a new name in Chinese: Xin Yuedong (New Yuedong). Giving an old platform a modern body and a new name in China isn’t entirely exclusive to Hyundai, as Ford (Escort) and Chevrolet (Cavalier) have done the same. However, the Celesta is powered by an ancient 1.6-liter with 122hp/150Nm, mated to a surprisingly modern 6MT or a 6AT. Apart from those transmissions, this is ancient technology in modern sheetmetal. Dimensions are 4.510/1.765/1.470mm with a 2.650mm wheelbase.
