A concept version of Hyundai’s HB20 small hatch has been unveiled at the Sao Paulo Motor Show, wearing R-Spec badges.

The regular HB20 is a small-sized model purpose-built for the Brazilian market, comparable with the i20 and i30 from the Australian market.

Wearing a rear spoiler and silver highlights across the front, side and mirrors, the concept has sparked questions on whether or not it forms the basis of a future model for Brazil only, nowhere, or several markets.

The concept was developed in South Korea, and sports an exclusive blue paint finish along with LED headlamps; which are new to the HB20.

Other features include 17-inch alloy wheels, red brake calipers, redesigned tail lamps, a shark-fin antennae and a twin chrome tailpipe set-up.

Inside, the R-Spec concept gets a redesigned dash, leather-wrapped steering wheel and leather seats with blue stitching.

The concept’s engine and power output remain a mystery for now, with Hyundai’s 150kW/265Nm 1.6 litre turbocharged petrol unit from the Veloster being a logical possibility (but far from confirmed).

That same engine also sees service in the Kia Pro_Cee’d GT, and is rumoured to power a new recently-spied turbocharged version of the Hyundai i30 SR.

Hyundai is believed to be gauging public reaction to its new concept at the Sao Paulo Motor Show, before deciding on the HB20 R-Spec’s next move.
