Expert Review

Hyundai EON
Tata Nano
INTERIOR:
Ed's take:

The Eon has amazing interiors, especially when you consider the cost of the product. Being a tall boy-ish design, there is sufficient head room. It is the kneeroom which is a bit tight, though better than the Alto.

 

Step inside the Eon and you will be surprised by the quality of the interiors. Not only go they look up market, but also their feel is good. The price tag of the car seems to be a great value for money for the overall package. The packaging seems to be more of a B segment car, than an A segment.

 

The space in the Eon is decent, but is much better than its biggest rival, the Alto. The seats of the Eon are comfortable and are of better quality when compared to its competition. The boot space is a bit smaller than what we would have expected. The brilliant ‘Toroidal’ tank in the new Hyundai Eon LPG variants endow with much bigger boot space instead of the archetypal and expected LPG-fitted models that are available in the market today.

 

D Lite: This is the base variant of the Hyundai Eon and it has no power steering, power windows and is a standard model with child lock, chrome radiator grille, engine immobilizer, rear seat belts, cup holder, remote tail gate release, low fuel indicator and 2-tone beige and brown interiors.

 

D Lite Plus: This is the improved base model of Hyundai EON and has the same engine specifications and same features as D-Lite but has an AC and full wheel cover.

 

Era Plus: This version gets tinted glass, body color bumpers are found in this model of Hyundai EON. Other specs are same as predecessor but a metallic finish centre console and electric power steering are introduced in this.

 

Magna Plus: It gets utility options like rear parcel tray, 2 DIN Radio+CD+MP3 Audio with 2 speakers in front, USB Port, Aux-in Port and a digital clock, Hyundai EON Magna is the best option for you.

 

Sportz: Hyundai EON Sportz is the suitable choice for those looking for added safety and convenience features. This is the high end variant with all the features offered in other models along with front fog, lamps, driver side airbag, keyless entry, body color outside mirror and door handles, metallic finish 3 spoke steering wheel unlike other variants which have 2 spoke steering. It also adorns metallic finished inside door handles, which enhance the sporty style on EON.

INTERIOR:
Tata Nano interior
Ed's take:

Tata Nano is the most spacious hatchback in its segment, as it offers 21% more space than competition. This is the only hatchback in the A segment that can comfortable seat five large adults without any squeeze.

Tata Nano has been improving the Nano everything and we see this happen with every new model year vehicle. The interiors of the Nano have been enhanced, as it now gets remote keyless entry, twin glovebox, four-speaker music system with Bluetooth and USB connectivity. The parcel tray also gets privacy.

The space on the Tata Nano has always been exceptional. It can comfortable seat five large adults, and there is two point seat-belt for all the three rear passengers. The parcel tray now has speakers on and even the insulation on the inside has been improved. The steering wheel on the Nano is now lighter than before.

ENGINE:

The Eon has a three-pot engine that is derived from Hyundai’s own Santro mill. This motor is shy of one cylinder and the drivability is decent. The new 1.0-litre engine is certainly a lot more powerful.

 

814cc: The Hyundai EON comes with 814 cc three cylinder SOHC petrol engine that exhibits a decent power of 55bhp at 5500rpm and a torque of 76 Nm at 4000rpm. This engine is Hyundai Santro’s four pot minus one. The NVH levels are low and the Korean automotive giant has done a decent job of reducing the idling for a three-pot motor, though it has some amount of rough idling. The ARAI certified mileage of the petrol version of this car is exceptionally good at 21.1 kmpl.

 

1.0-litre: The Eon is now being offered with a 1.0-litre petrol engine. This is a lot more powerful and more importantly it has better drivability than the 800cc. One doesn’t need to downshift for overtaking. This engine is perfect for this entry-level hatchback. The five-speed manual transmission has slick shifts and the box is easy to shift as well.

ENGINE:

The 623cc engine might look insufficient on paper, but in the real world the power this twin-cylinder produces is more than enough.

The 623cc twin-cylinder on the Nano produces 37bhp of power, which is more than enough for daily city commute. Several people complain the sound resembles that of an auto rickshaw, well this is due to the fact that the Nano has a small exhaust as it is a rear engine and also that it a two-cylinder mill. The drivability of the Nano is brilliant and it doesn’t feel underpowered or you never run out of steam when driving in city. It is easy to drive even in congested city lanes. The Nano’s gearbox is also slick, and infact one of the best boxes from Tata’s stable.

RIDE AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS:
Hyundai EON Dashbord

The Eon has a pliant ride quality as the suspension absorbs all the jounces and rebounds when even driven on rough roads. The handling is decent for the car, though nothing spectacular or bad.

 

The ride of the Eon is quite pliant as it glides over potholes. The suspension irons out all the jolts on uneven surfaces and does a good job without causing any jittering to the occupants.

 

It’s not as sharp or even as planted, but the body roll isn’t excessive, and unless you do something really stupid, it will not get out of hand. Quick direction changes are also managed very well. The steering wheel is light and even the turning radius is small. This makes maneuverability easy in small streets and lane.

RIDE AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS:
Tata Nano Dashbord

The Nano is a well-balanced hatchback that strikes the perfect chord of good ride and handling.

The Nano has stiff suspension due to its short wheelbase and high centre of gravity. This makes the ride a bit stiffer, and even the tyres are tad too smaller to dampen the shocks. The ride is a bit choppy, but that’s about it. It doesn’t feel that bad and the suspension does a good job still.

The Nano handles well, when it is completely loaded. The rear engine and rear wheel drive is a combination of sports cars and Nano gets a similar set-up. The 2013 Nano has a more responsive and lighter steering wheel that makes it easier to drive too.
