The small car segment has evolved quiet a lot in the recent years with the number of models expanding rapidly in number. Hyundai has always been a key player in the segment and its small cars are one of the best value-for-money options that one can get, be it the Santro or the Getz, i10 or the i20. The sub liter (1000cc) segment had no player from Hyundai until now, the EON is Hyundai’s newest and cheapest small car for India and it also happens to be one of the most anticipated car models of this year.
We drove the brand new Hyundai EON on the city roads and highways of Udaipur to find out what really is ‘the EON’. Read-On to find out all about this cute little car from Hyundai.
It took Hyundai nearly 4 years and an expense of more than Rs 900 Crores in designing and developing the EON which was code named as the HA. The Eon has been designed at Hyundai's development centre at Namyang in Korea. But the Hyderabad R&D centre of Hyundai has also worked extensively on this project.
We are told by Hyundai officials the `E` in the EON stands of Eternity.
The design of the Hyundai EON can be described as a benchmark in the small car segment. It has got all the fresh looks and glitz on it just in the right place. The Hyundai EON has a very sporty fluidic shape to its exteriors. Hyundai has continued with the Fluidic design mantra and the EON happens to be the second car model after the New Verna to adorn the Fluidic matter. The front of the EON is where the fluidic design begins, a neat pair of clear headlights which are extended (elongated) till the ‘A pillar’, are shaped rather nicely flowing back with the body design. You have the Hexagonal grill upfront that has become a family face since the new Verna. A nice rich looking chrome strip runs across the top of the grill with the Hyundai `H` logo in the center in chrome. The air dam is an all black affair with the slats running horizontally across the front bumper. The EON gets a nicely done diamond shaped fog lamps that are neatly placed upfront. The front bumper gives a meaty masculine look to the EON’s front profile. Coming to the sides, the EON gets the fluidic sculpture flowing in abundance here, flared and rounded wheel arches add a lot of muscle to the sides along with the nice prominent body lines that flow upwards starting from the headlights and under the window area and finally mating with the tail lamps. Another soft body line flows on the lower side of the doors. Large body colored wing mirrors get a black tone on the lower part that looks neat. The mirrors are internally manually adjustable.
The door handles also have the raised up leveling, the front door handle is on the lower height as compared to the rear door handle which is keeping in line with the flowing body lines on the sides of the EON. The side windows also the upward flow-design with the rear glass getting the shape with the body flow. The rear wheel arch also gets the muscular fluidic bulge as on the front which makes the sides look very muscular. The EON runs on 155/70 R13 tubeless tyre with full wheel caps on the Magna and the Sportz while the D-Lite and the Era get 145/80 R12 of tyre specs. Coming to the rear, the EON has a distinctive behind for a car in its segment; a fresh looking half moon shaped tail lamp that is neatly flushed in the body line looks strikingly different and lends a key sporty design input to the behind of the EON. The tail lamps look catchy and are large in size.
The rear bumper is again meaty and keeping with the front bumper, it also looks muscular. The EON Sportz that we drove comes with an integrated roof spoiler with stop lamp as standard. The tail gate has a wide rear glass that aids rear visibility to the driver and a nice big Hyundai `H` emblem in chrome is placed on the tail gate. A micro roof antenna is placed on the top of the EON which again is of very good quality and finish. The exhaust muffler pipe is neatly hidden in the rear bumper and unseen.
The Hyundai EON has been very well built; the paint quality and the metal panels are neatly done. The quality of the exteriors is of top most level of any Hyundai car, irrespective of the fact that it is the i10, i20 or the Verna. So, the EON is no exception it comes in six color options, White, Silver, Mushroom, Metallic Silver, Bright Blue and Red, we drove the White EON.
Hop inside the Hyundai EON and you would be surprised with the sheer quality and fit finish for a car this price. The good thing here is that Hyundai has done no cost cutting on the EON unlike other car makers who do a lot of quality compromise on the interiors of a small budget entry level car model. The dash is a two tone affair with the top half in black and the lower half in beige color. A very rich look and feel texture has been given to the dash. Quality of the dash plastic is in the leagues of the i10 and the i20 which is very good. The instrument cluster is a three pod thing with the temperature on the left, fuel level on the right and the speedo in the center. The temperature and the fuel gauge are marked with green digital lights which again are a first in the segment. All the three pods have a silver lining around them enhancing their look and the speedo gets its needle in red with green illumination. The EONs instrument cluster gets two trip meters along with all the standard tell-tale warning lights. The Eons steering is a three spoke design with manual height adjusts on it which is a big boon for short and tall drivers. A neat silver insert with the Hyundai 1H1 logo in chrome makes the steering look striking for a car in this segment. The center dash gets a slight triangular recess inwards to accommodate a Gods Idol which is a special Indian touch on the EON especially for India.
The AC vents look and feel good, under the vents is a double DIN MP3 – Radio unit that also has an integrated USB and AUX port upfront to connect I-Pods, pen drives and other portable music players. The EON comes with two front speakers as standard. Under the MP3 player is the AC/heater control unit with rotary knobs that have a very rich feel to them. The AC fan blower has a 4 speed setting to it. As with all Hyundai cars the EON too has a powerful AC unit that cools the cabin real quickly, the 4 speed blower is most happy on the first 2 speeds. A thick silver colored blushed metal like insert runs around the center dash and the music player which looks very neat. The EON has a extra large glove box and the point to be noted here is that the glove box has a nice tacky noise when you shut it, above the glove box on the dashboard you have a inwards recess that has been specially designed to keep a one liter bottle horizontally a touch again keeping in mind the needs of Indian customers.
The EON Sports comes with a sporty upholstery seats that is a mix of faux Rexene and cloth. The front seats get integrated head rests. There is good amount of head room and leg room up front thanks mainly to the cab forward design of the EON. The driver gets a near to perfect visibility with a very comfortable driving position. The front seats are more than comfortable for a car in this segment. The gear stalk is at ergonomic distance and has an all black round knob. The steering and the gear knob have a very upmarket feel to them.
The rear seat gets integrated head rests and is comfortable for two passengers. Support for the under thigh and back is decent enough and the seat in inclined to a very comfortable angle. Head room at the rear is good while the leg room with the front two seats pushed back is decent for a car this size. The seats are made of good quality upholstery with a nice amount of cushioning in them. The door pads get du-tone that is black-beige shades with the door opener in blushed metal silver that looks very rich. The EON comes with front power windows and rear rotary type windows. The EON gets many cubby holes and bottle holders in the door pads and in front of the gear lever which are very practical.
The Hyundai EON also gets a driver side airbag which again is the first in its class.
The EON has a large boot area of 215 liters of capacity; you want to know how large that really is? Compare the 215liter of the EON to the 165liters of boot space of the Maruti Alto and you will get your answer. The luggage area can be further increased by folding down the rear bench seats if needed.
The EON has very nice and rich, well appointed interiors on a very spacious cabin for a car this size and price. The plastics used in here are of high quality and finish. So on the whole nowhere did we find any cost cutting or compromise made by Hyundai, hats off to Hyundai for keeping the interior quality of the EON at par with the i10, i20 and the Verna. Everything in here works well and looks and feels well built.
The Hyundai EON is powered by an 814cc SOHC 3 cylinder Petrol engine that has 9 valves on it. This little engine generates 56PS of power @ 5500RPM and 76 NM of torque @ 4000RPM. We are told that this is the same i10 engine with one cylinder chopped off in the interest of fuel efficiency. This 800cc engine is mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox.
Start the EON and you notice the 3 cylinder engine coming to life, there is not much vibration except for some that is felt on the gear shifter at idle. The engine is refined for a 3 cylinder engine and smooth. Shift to first gear and the EON moves ahead in a smooth linear fashion. The power delivery is good for a 3 pot car with the engine clearly tuned for high fuel efficiency and city bumper to bumper driving conditions. You get the gear shift indicator on the speedo console that tells you when to up shift or down shift if you are driving in the wrong gear at a certain speed. Shift to the EON to 2nd and the power generates at an even pace. We touched speeds of 140KMPH on our Udaipur highway run which is a lot for a car in this segment.
The EON has a nice city driving character to it. The steering feels light and this should help maneuvering the car on busy roads. The EON feels much planted at high speeds which are unheard of in cars in this price segment. The drive feel is reassuring and not a single time did the EON feel nervous or out of composure. You need to meticulously shift between the gears to stay in the power-band of this 3 pot engine car, never the less you soon get used to this and then you can really enjoy the EONs drive character. The ride and handling of the EON is steady partly due to the superb suspension setup on the car. The EON has a nice city driving character to it.

The ride and handling of the EON is steady partly due to the superb suspension setup on the car. With Mc person sturt in the front and Gas filled shoxs in the rear the ride quality is surprisingly far advanced for this segment. The EON not only drives well but also is calm when thrown in corners and sharp bends. The EON has front discs and rear drum that again are best in class and have a nice sting on them. The Electric power steering on the EON is a big boon as we mentioned earlier in busy traffic conditions. We found accurate gear shifts on the EON with gear ratios tuned majorly for fuel efficiency and in-city drives.
Hyundai has been a master at manufacturing small cars in India and with the EON now Hyundai betters its standing. The EON is a complete overall package, just perfect for someone who wants his first car, it has class leading dimensions and equipment level. The drive is very comfortable and something unseen in this segment. Hyundai has done a very fine job in making the EON as a class leading product with many features offered for the first time in the segment. Hyundai claims a fuel efficiency of 21.1kmpl which again makes it the segment leader.
The EON is easily the best car now in the segment with prices starting at Rs. 2.69lakhs Ex Showroom Delhi. There is nothing much that Hyundai can go wrong with the EON, everything is just perfect. Superb quality exteriors and interiors, a very catchy design element and a potent and efficient 815cc engine making the EON the best buy in the Rs 2.5 lakh to Rs 3.5 lakh segment currently.
A true winner and a sure game changer, the Hyundai EON is here.
I don't know about its performance, but i saw the car. Its superb. Its the best car in that segment. Bravo Hyundai:-).
Only Looks. Pathetic Performance.
The Hyundai Eon is worthless car, Problems 1) The car is hell lot of vibration 2) the milage is NOT MORE THEN 13kmpl in highway and JUST 6-8kmpl in city . 3) Eon is a tin box car. 4) ENO will bump like bull car 5) Eon cannot the the pickup with 5 passanger with a/c on. 6) The worse thing if you take LPG virent, the service station will said sir this is LPG CAR it will happen for any problem. This mean YOU ARE LOOTED TO HAVE HYUNDAI EON.
Totally disagree with u. Eon has got superb handling in corners and sharp bends. I am getting fuel efficiency of 20 km per litre in highway and 12 kpl in city. Very nice car in this price range. you cannot compare it with swift or i 20 .i am fully satisfied.Only negative u can say is slightly underpowered and gear lever vibration.
It's superb car, no doubt. The mileage is very good as compare to other cars. It is giving 20 km/ltr for me on highway and 17 in city. LPG is an best option as it is built by Hyundai and mileage is also amazing, 20 Km/ltr...AC is also superb...excellent pickup even on LPG...For small family it is an best option and reliable...i m enjoying.
yes i agree withu
True Indaian car...I need to know the waiting period from once i book the car...
Hi Arun, it's 15 days to one month, i just checked today
no just one week.i have booked yesterday.will deliver next tuesday
Thanks Sir...i will be awaiting for your response :)
Dude go look some other car. I drove it. Even old Mariti 800 is better
dude pls sell ur old 800 first....then u feel other car better or not even BMW, Benz for that matter.....
Arun I am a proud owner of the EOn Right Now.. I ttok the delivery of the vehicle today from Calicut.. I dont feel that there is a waiting period for the same.. Please check with any of the 'A' Class dealer who might be able to give you the car in a weeks time
readily available as it is a petrol version
s we can same day delivery
It seems EON is just city car as mentioned above not for long drives ....
where does EON stands when compared with Alto K10i ?
Rahul, Alto K10 is 1000 cc engine with 3 cylinder with cable type gear shift, the power of EON will be 800 (its just a competitor for Alto lx,lxi).
Eon stands behind alto in all parameters other than style
Its got an air bag too. The quality of interiors is superb. Its a mixture of safety and style. Still did not test drive it, so cant comment on its performance. But in ideling the cabin was silent. Unlike Hyundai cars, its engine was not super silent. Till that much i can say about the engine. The dash is a master piece. No car has such a superb dashboard panel even in one lack above segment;-).
i take test drive, outher feature and look is very good. but engine performance (gear noice) is too much. its ifect to engine life.
Its not a bad car........according to price it is the best car...
Price is not so appealing. You get spark or alto for value for money. I been to showroom today. Took a test drive.
Is Hundai EON having Auto Transmission type also?
no there is no auto transmission in eon.
i have seen the car and i agree that the rear leg space is as much as in any small car and the price is way tooooo high for a small car no way it will compete with Alto K series secondly hyundai pechant for claiming wrong milage is well know the car never gives the milage which it claims
I agree with you. Too highly priced car. If you require a show piece at your garage then Eon is best. If you want value for money go little higher on Santro, spark or Alto
Copy paste car , looks as similar as Beat. I think hyundai is doing the same thing like remake of bollywood movies.
No way it resembles beat. It looks like Suzuki cervo which comes in 600cc segment.
did u see suzuki servo..?how can u compare with that..vk
No, it is copy of Suzuki A-Star in look
Its a fludic design same as in Verna, space more than A-Star
Dear Gagan Sir. Thanks for comment. I have booked MAGNA Optional model of EON . Is it right descission? Pl advice
Hi Kiran...my pleasure Magna (O) is a great value no doubt. It's a great city car and occasionally on highway too, very easy to drive and gives a great feel. Stability is also good and you also wont complain about fuel efficiency. Just one thing I want to know how much it is costing you on road. If it is close to Chevrolet Beat then you can also consider that because it is having 1200 cc 4 cylinder engine with 79 BHP but its fuel efficiency is less since its more powerful than Eon. My Yahoo Id is gagan_4321 (you can add me anytime if you want to discuss anything related to automobiles). I would be more than happy to assist you. Take care and enjoy......
nice one iam also booking magna optional
@kiran - So got your delivery of your Magna(o)?
Yes Sir I m getting delivery on 24th Jan of Coral White Magna Optional at 3.75 on road ( 3.92 on road price - 10K Free insurance & 7K cash discount. Thanks for co operation & support given in choosing my first dream car at my budget. Thanks a lot & wish you Happy new year 2012 & independence day firstname.lastname@example.org
Congratulations to you too Kiran! Now the company has introduced Magna there is basically no difference but its at somewhat reduced price. However, the ultimate value is Era since it has front power windows plus central locking plus moulded door pads with bottle holders. its cheaper for rs. 30000/- than Magna I am not sure if you get free insurance and cash discount pl inquire from the dealer Gagandeep Singh
Also it would like to tell you its providing me 15-16 KM/Ltr of milege in city and 22km/Ltr on highway fuel efficiency
Thanks Dear Gagan Sir, It is only Free insurance & cash discount offered & parer out officially in Gujarat for the model manufactured in 2011. I already booked it in December & they allotted at same time. We checked & drove it, However delivery delayed from my side due to Kamuhurta falls till 23 Jan. offer for cash discount is for month Jan only, I have to make much negotiation / discussions to get it as booking from December & it was not that time. Thnx. Kiran Bhandari
I got 25k discount.
Dear Sarita. Congratulation for your new wonder car EON. We would like to know from where you purchased it as all the scheme are now closed & also prize are hiked by 5/7k. I get Magna(O) in 375K in Jan & now it is at 406K on road for Magna model. Feature for Magna(O) & ( ) are one & same. Thanks email@example.com
The price mentioned is of basic version,no mention about variants with features and their prices.
i agree its leg space is very short also like Alto with 800 cc.rear space are very short only 2 person can sit at rear seat. i think its pass in RTO 3 1.also in D-lite base model that cost 2.70 ex.delhi comes without AC and with simple glass not provided tinted glasses also only AC comes in nearabout 3 lack variant.if we trying above 3 lack model than we have lots of options.
you drove the vehicle in highways but u dont give ur verdict regarding mileage. u only paste what hyundai claims. I doubt the authenticity of this review.
hi, I would also like to know how is the millage in true seance while driving in city and also in highways. I have doubt it would really compit with Maruti alto in respect of millage and long run performance.
Hi Joyanta, EON cannot compare Alto in terms of mileage... Believe me guys, I own an Alto and I get 23 KMPL on highways with AC... I was so impressed with Maruti's performance and service, last month I bought another car WAGON R, fully loaded... I live in Pune and I got top end model for 4.32 Lacs... it has everything... You name the feature and it has... (except air bags and ABS) which is optional. EON should have had rear power windows, defogger, rear wiper/washer etc... moreover, they haven't provided RPM meter which is a cost cutting and contradicts the statement that is made in above review
Yes comparing to others , the price is high but interiors of Alto , specifically maruti is not at all great . The plastics look cheap. The 800 CC will give a better mileage compared to i10 mileage.Seeing the rocketing price of petrol,mileage for ay new car is definitely a concern. This Car is well suited for City Driving if it gives a proper mileage of 15-16 at least with AC on.Overall a nice car,I am planning to book one but it would have been good if the top end was within 3.5-3.6 Lakhs.
i need to know EON auto transmission is available.
No auto transmission option available.
Hope Hyundai introduces AT as soon as possible in this segment.
No doubt, it is a great car. Look is like mini-I20. But, it has to be seen, how the body is. Only plastic won't do. Need bit heaviness to ride Indian bumpy road.
The Eon is having a look of Chevrolet Beat
I think its not just over priced compared to the Alto but also very SHORT ON FEATURES, they have just concentrated on style nothing else, there is tremendous vibrations from the engine, I went to a few dealers for a Test Drive but they claim that they have not yet recd the Test drive car, they are also very disappointed with the noise and complete lack of rear space and overall features. VERY COSTLY for its segment. and it worries me more what the maintenance costs would be. Not at all a good buy
I want to test drive pl. call me on 9818232285 and I think it looks is super
its just show piece, price too- high! with this segment
i think lookvies eon so good interior also good but i dont no about engine
Looks great. It will be the best small car if what is claimed is 85% true. Price seems to be slightly high if it has to beat its main compitetor Alto K10i.
when hyundai will launch autotransmission eon
its launch dear
mr. Dinesh, I think you have not read Ashok's question. Auto transmission car is not yet launched. Instead Eon is supported with gear shift indicator which i feel is as good as auto transmission wherein it shows you have to change the gear when you are at wrong speed.
When is diesel version due or expected? Anyone knowing?!!
2mrw...go n fill diesel to ur petrol car it wil work....
what is the price.......is it good for indian raod....one liter how many KM diesel or petrol engine capacity
wow what a performance..!!!!!
Really Dream and amazing car in small cars series.
Took a Test Drive. It felt vastly superior to the Alto. But Pales when i compared it with Chevy Spark with its 4 Cylinder Engine and great ride.
looking a sport car...
The Hyundai EON is powered by an 814cc SOHC 3 cylinder Petrol engine that has 9 valves on it. This little engine generates 56PS of power @ 5500RPM and 76 NM of torque @ 4000RPM. We are told that this is the same i10 engine with one cylinder chopped off in the interest of fuel efficiency. This 800cc engine is mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox. This is all Wrong. Eon gets its engine from the Santro (Minus 1 cylinder), not the i10. And it produces 54ps.
dear sir, this car is very beautiful but want LPG connection need
Hyundai is already trying CNG model of Eon. People have seen the Eon on test CNG car on road. Possibly a wait for around a year!!??
What will be the on road price for fully loaded version?pl.tell me
In Vasai, thane dist, maharashtra (without octroi) price is 4.20 lacs.
4.20 Lacs? Then go for Wagon R... same price, In Pune it is 4.32 top end model K10 engine with 68 bhp... awesome car
what is the comparison between hyundai eon and alto k10..
cute car 100 times better than maruti alto
In looks and style, I agree. But Engine response, Mileage and price Just pathetic. Alto wins hands down in this segment
how you say mileage is pathetic alto doesnt have quality and strudyness no new technology by that co. since last 10 yrs here and there some small changes never compromise with tec. when it comes to mileage no car will give good mileage if you drive 80 plus eon is the best i that segment eng world class than alto
Then buy one and be a guniea dude. I can only sympathise. Japs hav a wrong notion about indians. That we wil buy any rubbish for low cost
Price seems to be high in comparison of ALTO, but look is very dashing in this segment.
I had a look over Eon, it looks beautiful,If you have patience then wait for at least for one more month to know the performance of the vehicle. Not sure about mileage...But it rocks the style in this segment... but price is too high on high end variant.. price is almost equal to Wagon-R (discounted price).....It suits only for city drives for 2 2 family max....Rear leg space is a constraint.....Dash board and interior is amazing... Ultimately this CAR has to prove in the market for its performance and efficiency... all the best for Eon...
Dear Mr. Ganesh, I am exactly of the same opinion. I am also trying to compare with wagonR. The price is same as discounted price of wagonR. I would also like to wait for a month or two for performance. During test drive, i have felt some vibration. While seating at rear seat, the outside visibility for a person is less because of new look window which is short in height like santro, wagonR etc. the leg room at rear is also not that much comfortable. I have not done test drive on wagonR but. Whats your suggestion?
for 814cc car cost is too much high. secondly this car yet to prove it's performance. Thus paying for this car is still a gambling.
Sanjay, I own a Wagon R VXI, its awesome with all features, it costs exactly 4,31,848 rupees in Pune. I am 5'10 and I can comfortably drive the car without having problem to back seat passengers. I would recommend go for Wagon R... Sheer driving comfort for long and city driving
Dear Mr. Shripad, thank you for your recommendation. To be very precise, Wagon R is costing me 417456 at vasai. What is your comparison /comment on wagon R interior and plastic quality. Many people complain a lot about plastic quality in suzuki cars. 1000CC engine with only 3 cylinder engine for a wagonR- is it a good match? Please comment. I am now more inclined towards wagonR after this review of Eon. The only point i dont that much appeal to go for wagonR is its boxy look, which do not gives a feel of a car & more like a Jeep. whats your opinion? Thanks again in advance for comment
The options available for different variants are O.K.The legspace for the rear seat is a little less.The front turning indicator lamp may not be visible while the headlight is on.Otherwise it is good car in its segment.
How many models in i20 on petrol models with its price as cash payment terms and also inform its delivery time also.
its a city car comfort for hyd city trafic
EON looks very good and much better than alto.i booked magna for Rs.4 lakhs on road in Coimbatore.If it gives atleast 18 km in city it will easily become the market leader.
I got Magna(O) yest for weekend driving & felt its way better than other small cars on road in todays scenario with best of features in its segment.
can anybdy tell what is the meilage exactly......
EON MAGNA cost in hyd...
I had a test ride of Eon and had also booked it before launch and after the test ride i dont found the car exiciting at all no driving pleaseure. The car has a very bad pickup and no driving pleasure I'll suggest you to please take a test ride before booking the car,
Whats about engine souund...?????
@mahesh Rate is high mean price rate? Any one suggest me a car with in 4Lac(on road) with a good looks?
Wagon R... Top end...
EVON is no where as far as ALTO is concern.....!!!! But yes it looks good from outside. I wud suggest pls wait far a month what ppl say and what it perform actually... what they r saying is all in air..!!
Really a good car... External and internal features are great.. Drive too is good... Alto has no comparison to this... Tall people will struggle to sit it drivers seat in Alto. Leg space in back too is poor in Alto.. If you are buying Eon as city car, that will be a great choice. Hyundai is reliable. But I have doubts about the fuel efficiency that they claim...
super family car
To The Editorial Chief Car Dekho Team Sir, Your review is excellent. I feel as if I drove the car. The technical details given by your experts are informative and it is a guiding tool for the persons who is in the verge of buying this car. I wish all the best in your new endeavours. TV Sridhar.
With low price we can get rid of same 800 & Alto look.Really low price car with luxury looks....Nice to see changes in India...Thnks to Hyundai Motor India Limited....
After having a test drive of the car, I strongly believe that it is a very nice entry level car, but those who will be owing and drivng will have a feel of driving a more expensive car both in and out. That will be the best part about EON. As far as price is concerned it is obviously expensive than Alto, but it is somewhat justified by the overall package (Looks, Interiors, Space and Superior finishing) that one gets.
its better than santro.
EVON is no where as far as i10 is concern.....!!!! But yes it looks good from outside. I wud suggest pls wait far a month what ppl say and what it perform actually... what they r saying is all in air..!!
if u want New hyundai Eon in trivandrum and kerala contact me 9495625572
a new look for hundai
in this category it is a beautiful and attractive car
what is the price on road in bangalore, can it be compared with beat and wagonR ?
Would appreciate if the author who has driven upto Udaipur shares the mileage he got from ths car.thanks
The Eon gives 17kmpl in overall driving condition.
Thats nice car After how long it will require maintains
I had a test-drive of the Eon model a week ago for one of my friends who sought my opinion on the car. I honestly felt that the engine was struggling on a decent slope and the engine harshness was apparen as it was grunting for a climb on a gradual slope at a speed of 50 km/h even on a third gear! I have driven both Maruti Alto and 800 models before and from my experience, I found the Eon's performance to be not so impressive in terms of its pulling and acceleration compared to it's 800 cc counterparts! Besides, I found the rear leg-room to be too crunchy while the rear suspensions to be too hard at potholes. The price is too high compared to it's Maruti 800cc counterparts running on the roads! Your review team was dwelling only on it's cosmetics and flucidic shapes and has not committed anything on it's fuel efficiency! I am owning a Hyundai Santro car and I am a satisfied customer as far it's ergonomics, fuel efficiency and it's boot volume! Overall, it is rather a disappointment from the Hyundai stable! It certainly needs refinements to be done both on it's engine and in the interior volumes! Your review team's assessment of the new model demands more balance and introspection!
its look superb i am private company if i get finance i like to purchas it
small sized i20;price wont match with Indian pocket, it should match with Indian road;
Looks is superb, space is also seems to be good compare to maruti 800 & Alto but engine power is less for hilly terrain road condition. After test drive only I can suggest its stability and performance.
I had test drive EON Mgna and waited for month,for this after i sold my maruti 800.But i felt sorry for its price, not sufficient space for rear leg stretch, not sufficient pull when accelerated if 5 persons payload as compared to Alto K10,only 4cm more height than Alto k10, but there is more space for luggage.Those who need good looking,luxury car type can go for it.I am noton EON,booked Alto K10.
best car.ok...lets see
i think that this is tha best car i am palaning new year 2012 but iam intrested in diesel version A RAMESH KUMAR 8099709899 KARIM NAGAR

superb car in small segment...amazing look and curves in body...
I will go for a Santro xing,if i want to buy a small car from Hyundai, That has proven its mettle already.
hay guyz.....i m from kashmir....i brought the era variant of eon car...i driven some 16 kms just before and it is nevertheless a brilliant hyundai car .....its little noisy,dont know iz it matters for u or not but when v already know that disel carz are also noisy why than most people go for the disel cars....best car and i own it today and driving feels in 814cc car is something amazing v expect in thiz segment......go for it
Agreed a very good car giving comfort just like 5 lac car
Heard like its a normal and good car similar like ALTO.
its not similar like alto its better than that!!!!!!!!!!
What is the on road price for sportz model in hyderabad
It is a over hyped cars based on the looks and the fluidic design , it does score on one thing though stable looks, One has to wonder the Alto K10 LX and VX versions are powered with a 996 cc engine which scores miles ahead of EON and even Santro is a more powerful vehicle. Alto K10, Santro and low end I10 versions would any day be better then this ride. If hyundai cute on price by 30k-50k this might be a winner
Any idea when dealers will start offering discount on Eon ?
I already got 10K loyalty bonus plus free insurance plus 3k cash discount in all Rs. 20K after much negotiating and I think its an awesome deal for a new car launched.
how about ford figo.?
is this car good to buy or not
I was looking for a hatchpackfrom Hyundai family that would be nice to look having got bored by Santro variants in the past decade. True to its words Hyundai has brought out this EON elegeantly looking, beauty. Thank you Hyundai. Itis now upto Maruti to upgrade the look of its version alto to beat this pick. While the exterior of the wonder boy eon has been made to look attractive the interior space makes a feeling that you are at Home not House. Thanks cardekho for giving an opportunity to write on my favourite EON. This is Muthu H V from Holur Kolar district Kolar taluk.
a new look for hundai eon d-lite
I had an oppurtunity to Test Drive this Car. I drove Sportz variant. Vehile both Exterior and Interior looks are excellent. But, there was a very low engine noice audiable in the cabin, which we never find in any of the Hyundai vehicles. Moreover, the gear know is very shaky and if these two are rectified it will be a perfect and good value for money, considering the prevailing labour and raw material costs.
I want to book EON Magna(O), What is the performance, Any EON holder, Pl suggest, should i go for it? It will be my first car & decided to go for it referring comparison on cardekho.com for exteriors, interiors, features, looks, dimensions, specifications & also pricing with Alto K10, Spark, Santro & I10. PL Pl Pl Give your correct advise, Thanks. I am From Vapi, Gujarat
It is best in it's class mileage is very good with ac it gives 21kmpl. I have EON magna(o) and its very comfortable & all the features are very good.
Thanks Raj, I am taking delivery on 24th Jan in Coral white Magna (O)
Truly Eon Magna is rich with features, roomy interior, classic fittings, commendable rear seat leg space and decent boot space makes it class apart.
I owned my EOn Magna(0) maharaja red on 27/11/2011 @ 3.79 on road price and would like to tell u that it is delivering more than expected. Its really a car which has immense kinetic to collapse the competitors. Driving is quite smooth, power is upto the mark. Its one of the needed feature is gear shift indicator which could make ur driving more economical. The feel of driving could be compared to i10. the outer and inner finish and ergonomics could be compared to any car more than the price of EON. To compare monotonous alto with this delectable car is not worthy.... will update u much more in coming days....
Agreed with Tarun...Alto stands nowhere near to it.
i want this car right now
VERY GOOD AND SMART LOOK MODEL , I LIKE THIS
I bought hyundai eon sports. The performance of it is bad and looking so small.So i have sold it and buy i 20 asta abs.It is so cool and high pick up.
Buddy dont compare Eon with i20... I20 is a fantastic car but in a different class and league. A Price difference of over Rs 2.5 Lacs btw Eon and i20 Asta
Dear sayak, u are comparing lily with sunflower. Both are beautiful in their size category.... so pls don't make such comparisons. :)
i like this car April first weak booking this car
yes.. alsio i purchage this car in sept.. month
hi gagandeep singh i need your advice i was bit confused between alto lxi and eon d lite plus among these two which is the best
Our choice is the new Hyundai Eon. The Eon is trendy, better looking, has more space and loaded with equipment plus is a more fun car to drive .
when hyundai eon automatic came.
As far as mileage is concern, I drove my hatch back (from Roorkee to Vikasnagar and vice versa) to 286 Kms fetching 15 ltrs of petrol. :)
@ Gagandeep Singh : I am planning to have a EON Magna (optional) - I had been through the comments which you had posted here.. This is my first car, I like my car should be fuel efficient (min 17 - 18 km / ltr ** in city like kolkata), less noisy (** I am referring the engine noise as of Tata INDICA / INDIGO, futuristic looking, bootspace as of minimum 200 ltrs to 220 ltrs, price (within 3.5 lkhs - 3.8 lkhs). Can you suggest that my choice for EON suffice this or I am missing something which needs to be reconsidered. Kindly suggest..
I plan To Get my Fist Car so any one could please suggest me Alto/Alto K10/Eon As my budget is up to 3.60 Lacs. I prefer mileage and Low maintenance.
Car is very nice.Mileage is also ok what about maintenance and other cost ?Need some discount scheme for Hundai eon.so middle class family fastly move for eon...
Is this EON car suitable to drive here in Bhutan(Hill Road)
The 800cc 3 cylinder engine has enough power and torque to drive easy on the hilly roads of Bhutan, yes it the Eon will drive well on your roads.
How available is spare parts compare to Maruti Alto in Jaigaon,West Bengal.
Hi, I want to buy my second car and I have plan to go for Alto K10 or Hyundai EON. At present I am driving (Waganor Lxi 2002 Make) .

LAst week I took the test drive of Beat -diesel but power is below 1000 cc and boot space is also less Pls suggest .
The Hyundai EON would be the perfect choice considering your needs.
wow !amazing car i want to buy it no other car is good as this one of the awesome car i have ever seen in this segment superb hyundai
Buying a car is life time dream / achievement of Middle class people. Better Go and Drive new trendy cars. Choose according to your necessity / Budget. Suggesstions will lead to chaos. I had Maruthi Suzuki 800, I felt happy. Now I am driving Hyundai EON. I feel happy. Buyer comments will be varying depend on Dealer's behaviour. If Service provider system is good, we will like to buy the product, not so, you won't be happy even if you have BMW / AUDI / Mercedes - Benz
Now I am driving Hyundai EON.
Any Idea about Mileage for LPG versions, specially Dlite Plus.
