2010 Hyundai RB Concept
2010 Hyundai RB Concept is a coupe-like dynamic styling that is sculpted, stately and performance-oriented. It will premieres at the 2010 Moscow International Motor Show (MIMS).
Production version of the Hyundai RB Concept 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.
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 Hyundai RB Concept’s large hexagonal front grill, headlamps and “L”-shaped fog lamps that give luxurious and exquisite looks.
For 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.
