Hyundai has launched a new compact saloon at the Moscow motor show for the domestic market.
The Hyundai RB is a repackaged Accent with new bumpers and a new front grille, bonnet and headlights. Its design also incorporates Hyundai's 'fluidic sculpture’ design language.
The RB concept is virtually production-ready and will be built at the firm's new St Petersburg plant from January 2011. Sales will start in Russia soon after.
It will be available with Hyundai's new 1.4 and 1.6 Gamma petrol engines, producing 106bhp and 122bhp respectively. Transmission options for both engines include a four-speed automatic and a five-speed manual.
