Hyundai's smallest and cheapest offering, the Eon has certainly lived up to the company's expectations, it is selling close to 7,000 units a month on an average, which actually proves it to be a new 'trendsetter' of India. Now the South Korean car maker has launched the Eon in Chile, which was especially a made for India product.
Hyundai Motors had launched the Eon in 2011 pitting it against the Alto. The product is definitely a game changer, but the numbers couldn’t match that of the Alto. Recently, Maruti Suzuki had upgraded the existing Alto and a new Alto800 has come in. Even though the new Alto800 doesn’t appeal in styling and quality, it is still going strong for Maruti Suzuki.
