2011 Hyundai Solaris: official details, photos and specs

Article by Christian A., on September 24, 2010

The production form of the Solaris, the Russian version of the Hyundai Accent subcompact sedan, has been unveiled. Very few changes seem to have been made. The Solaris, which starts production this January, is the first Hyundai model to be made at the automaker's Russian manufacturing base. Solaris’ Concept RB had debuted in Moscow.

The significant changes on the production car are found in the rear, where the Concept RB's sporty rear fascia and specially shaped dual exhaust were replaced by a less aggressive design with two red reflectors.

And Hyundai opted for a simpler style instead of the subtle ring of light following the outer edge of the taillights. The edges of the car’s lower grille were softened but the foglights remain the same. For the US market, options include side mirrors with integrated turn signals and rear parking sensors.

In Russia, the Solaris/Accent will be available with 1.4- and 1.6-liter four-cylinder engines partnered to a five-speed manual or four-speed automatic.

It’s likely that the 2011 Hyundai Accent in the US will have a 110hp 1.8-liter four-cylinder engine coupled to a four-speed automatic and five-speed manual transmission.

For safety, the high-end models get six airbags. To be offered only in Russia are the headlights that have a longer lifespan (1500 hours) and front and rear mud guards will be offered as standard. The Solaris name was picked from over 27,000 entries sent in by people across Russia.
