Don't be mistaken. Hyundai is not going into the music industry but launching a new subcompact sedan. Along with the local version of the new Sonata, Hyundai is also showing the RB "concept" at the Moscow International Motor Show. What we're really looking at here is a thinly disguised version of the Russian market Verna/Accent subcompact, which originally made its world premiere at the Beijing Auto Show back in April 2010.
The RB will be built at Hyundai's first full-cycle plant in Saint Petersburg, Russia, starting January 2011 followed by the market launch in spring of 2011.
The sub-compact sedan will be available with Hyundai's 1.6-liter or 1.4-liter Gamma petrol engines with an estimated 124 PS and 156 Nm of torque; and 107 PS and 135 Nm, respectively.
A four-speed automatic transmission or a standard five-speed manual will be available for both engines.
