0 评论


Hyundai Motor Company introduced a new sub-compact family sedan concept RB at the 2010 Moscow International Motor Show. The Hyundai RB concept previews a sub-compact family sedan with a coupe-like dynamic styling. The Hyundai RB concept styling embodies the company's fluidic sculpture design language, which the company says, transforms it in a timeless work of art. Now, we're not really sure about the art part.

Power will come from Hyundai’s Gamma engine lineup consisting of a 1.6L or 1.4L DOHC in-line 4 cylinder gasoline engine that features multiport fuel injection with CVVT (Continuously Variable Valve Timing). The 1.6 Gamma is expected to push out 122-hp, while the 1.4 Gamma will produce 105-hp. Both will be mated to a 4-speed automatic transmission or a standard 4-speed manual transaxle.

The strong design hints of the production version are highlighted in concept RB’s large hexagonal front grill, headlamps and “L”-shaped fog lamps that give luxurious and exquisite looks.

The RB will be built at Hyundai's first full-cycle plant in Saint Petersburg, Russia starting in January 2011 followed by the market launch in spring of 2011.

Concept RB


(Note: All specifications and details in this release are based on the model for Russia)

Moscow, Aug. 25, 2010 - Hyundai Motor Company introduced a new sub-compact family sedan concept RB at the 2010 Moscow International Motor Show (MIMS). The RB projects a coupe-like dynamic styling that is sculpted, stately and performance-oriented.

With elegant lines that resemble a calligrapher's "orchid strokes," the concept RB continues Hyundai Motor's ‘fluidic sculpture' design philosophy that injects sophistication and dynamic angles into the shape of a vehicle. Like any timeless work of art, the fluidic essence that characterizes molding design of Hyundai's latest models is inspired by nature, realizing the harmonic coexistence of all things created.

The strong design hints of the production version are highlighted in concept RB's large hexagonal front grill, headlamps and "L"-shaped fog lamps that give luxurious and exquisite looks.

When the production sub-compact sedan arrives in Russia, it will be powered by the modern Gamma engine, 1.6L or 1.4L DOHC in-line four cylinder gasoline engine that features multiport fuel injection with CVVT (Continuously Variable Valve Timing). By replacing the old Alpha engine with Gamma, the sedan promises more power and torque, as well as best-in-class fuel economy, in keeping with Hyundai's pledge to be the industry's eco-leader. The estimated power and torque of 1.6 Gamma are respectively 124ps and 156 N.m while those of 1.4 Gamma are 107ps and 135 N.m. The powerful and fuel-efficient Gamma engine will be mated to a four-speed automatic transmission or a standard five-speed manual transaxle.

Production version of this concept car is scheduled to begin at Hyundai's first full-cycle plant in Saint Petersburg, Russia, Hyundai Motor Manufacturing Russia(HMMR) in January 2011, and will join the Hyundai lineup in the spring of 2011.
