From the official Press Release:

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.

The fluidic essence that characterizes molding design of Hyundai’s latest models is inspired by nature, realizing the harmonic coexistence of all things created.

Among the strong design hints are the large hexagonal front grill, headlamps and “L”-shaped fog lamps.

When the production sub-compact sedan arrives in Russia, it will be powered by the 1.6L or 1.4L DOHC in-line four cylinder gasoline Gamma engines with CVVT (Continuously Variable Valve Timing).
