SHANGHAI, China — The Hyundai Mistra concept, a preview of a China-only midsize sedan from the Korean automaker, debuted at the 2013 Shanghai Auto Show.

The Mistra slots between the Hyundai Sonata and Elantra and competes with the Nissan Sylphy in China. Powertrain details were not released.

The Mistra "will strengthen Hyundai's efforts to establish itself as a leading brand in the world's largest auto market," the company said in a statement.

The production version of the Mistra will launch in China later this year. The car is aimed squarely at China's growing middle class.

The Mistra concept rides on a 109-inch wheelbase and is 185 inches long. It features 19-inch aluminum wheels and a Frost Jade exterior color designed to appeal to Chinese customers. Other details include full-LED taillights.

The concept is named after Mistra, a city in Greece.

Edmunds says: Hyundai targets China with the Mistra, which some are calling the Elantra's "big brother."
