Hyundai Motor Company, South Korea’s largest automaker, unveiled a new sub-compact four-door sedan Solaris. THE NAME, SOLARIS
The word Solaris is derived from a Latin word for sun, Sol, and implies Hyundai Motor’s strong will to expand its business in the Russian Federation with its new car.
The Solaris continues Hyundai Motor’s ‘Fluidic Sculpture’ design philosophy that injects sophistication and dynamic angles as well as elegant lines resembling a calligrapher’s “orchid strokes” into the shape of a vehicle. Hyundai Solaris is powered by the modern Gamma engine, 1.6L or 1.4L chain cam DOHC in-line four cylinder gasoline engines that feature multiport fuel injection with CVVT (Continuously Variable Valve Timing).
