Hyundai cars have been repeatedly topping the crash tests done by the international authorities.

They are second only to Maruti in the overall popularity chart. Adaptation and offering products that suit the needs of the customers have been the major reasons for the success of the carmaker in India.

There is a huge demand for small cars in India; Hyundai understood this and acted accordingly. This has helped the carmaker to attain the second position behind the industry leader Maruti in the manufacture of passenger cars. Accordingly, Hyundai has offered Eon, a small car to cater to the needs of the customers in India. Here is a closer look at Eon, the small car from the Korean carmaker.

Hyundai Eon – The Small Car From Hyundai

Hyundai Eon price between 2.88 lakh to 4.0 lakh rupees. This makes the car not only the most affordable car in the Hyundai line-up, but also affordable by millions of Indians with a low budget. There are around ten variants of Hyundai Eon in two fuel options – LPG and petrol. The LPG variant is powered by an 814 cc, 55 bhp motor, where as the petrol variant has two versions – an 814 cc, 55 bhp engine and a more powerful 998 cc, 68 bhp engine. All these engines are mated with five-speed manual transmission gearbox. These engines return a reasonable mileage of 21.1 kmpl.

This entry-level car from Hyundai is positioned in the market to challenge the Alto series of Maruti. Positioned below Hyundai’s own Santro and i10, the Eon has achieved a lot of success in India. Compact and easy to handle, this is an ideal car for the city dwellers. Its small size ensures that the car is easily maneuvered in the city traffic and parking is relatively easy.

Although small, the Eon can easily accommodate five persons. It offers reasonable headroom and leg space. The boot space, although not too big, is enough to accommodate the luggage of a small family. The Eon comes in various attractive colors like Sleek Silver, Mushroom, Ember Grey, Pristine Blue, Maharajah Red and Coral White.

Like every Hyundai car, the Eon is also high on safety and features like driver side airbag, reinforced body structure, front and rear seatbelts, child safety rear door locks, central locking, engine immobilizer and keyless entry among others. In short, it is a good city car.
