2010 Hyundai Concept RB

This year’s Moscow Motor Show is underway, and Hyundai has started off the celebration with a new sub-compact family sedan concept RB. This concept will go into production in January 2011 and will be built at Hyundai’s first full-cycle plant in Saint Petersburg, Russia.

The Concept RB brags of "elegant lines that resemble a calligrapher’s orchid strokes" that supposedly adds to Hyundai Motor’s "fluidic sculpture" design philosophy. The Concept features a large hexagonal front grill, headlamps, and “L”-shaped fog lamps that will be transferred over to the production version. When it arrives, it will be powered by a 1.6L or 1.4L DOHC in-line four cylinder gasoline engine mated to a four-speed automatic transmission or a standard five-speed manual transaxle. The 1.6L engine will develop 122hp and 156 Nm of torque while the 1.4L engine will produce 106hp and 135 Nm of torque.

The production version of the Concept RB will join Hyundai’s lineup in the spring of 2011.

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 Hyundais pledge to be the industrys 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.

I’m so impressed with the exclusive appearance of this concept, and I wonder if they already bring it on the market? By the way, it is already looked great and very decent on its silver body paint.

I really love and so impressed with the automaker of Hyundai. They really know how to make a simple car and making sure that it will still be appealing and eye catcher one.

Hyundai really know how to made a car that had a simple beauty but very appealing, like what they made on this one. It is very stunning and awesome on its simple way.

I must agree with you aaron lexus, the automaker of Hyundai is so genius. I’m impressed with all of the cars here in Hyundai and this Hyundai RB is one of the best simple cars that I saw here. Even me, I would love to have a car as simple as this one yet very appealing.

I really love and so impressed with the automaker of Hyundai. They really know how to make a simple car and making sure that it will still be appealing and eye catcher one. This sedan concept RB is really impressive.

I think there’s nothing more to enhance on it. It is already the best for me. This concept is so simple but aggressive on its own way. This one is what I really want for my car.

The tail pipes and the fog lamp on the front can really give the aggressive look of it, but I think Hyundai needs to change their concept. I mean they need to enhance it more, for it to be the most competitive car inside the showroom.

I like the tail pipes on the back bumper and the fog lamp inserts on the front bumper, it gives it a more aggressive look !
