Hyundai has introduced a new sub-compact family sedan concept RB at the 2010 Moscow International Motor Show. Production version of this concept car, which is basically a repackaged Verna / Accent, is scheduled to begin at Hyundai’s first full-cycle plant in Saint Petersburg, in January 2011. It will join the Hyundai lineup in the spring of 2011.

The car comes with redesigned bumpers, grille, hood and headlights. It will be powered by Hyundai’s new 1.6-liter or 1.4-liter Gamma petrol engines.

By replacing the old Alpha engine with Gamma, the sedan promises more power and torque, as well as best-in-class fuel economy. The estimated power and torque of 1.6 Gamma are respectively 124 PS and 156 Nm, while those of 1.4 Gamma are 107 PS and 135 Nm.

First pictures of the Honda Fit / Jazz Hybrid have been released and it will make its world debut at the Paris Motor Show in September.

The car will be driving in with some minor styling changes which include revised headlights with a blue surround, clear rear lights, new grille, revised bumpers and a chrome tailgate garnish.

It will also be available in a range of existing colours plus a bespoke Lime Green metallic. Inside, the cabin has a fresh look with darker dashboard, which contrasts strongly with the blue lighting of the dials and dashboard instruments. There is also optional leather upholstery.

The car will feature the same engine as the Honda Insight; a 1.3-litre i-VTEC engine combined with a CVT gearbox, with an electric motor sandwiched between the two. The car will be capable of running on the electric motor alone under some medium and low speed conditions. The hybrid version will go on sale in the UK in early 2011.
