Pros : Look
Cons : Poor Pickup and gearshift lever vibration
I have a maruti 800DX which Iam using for the last 15 years. After the launch of EON, I thought to exchange my old 800DX for it. I requested the dealer for a test drive and my feelings are: The look from outside is verygood. Inside it is not comforable like Santro or i10 or even 800DX. When I trided to shift the gear, the gear lever has lot of vibrations. The plastics insde are of poor quality. Space inside is very cramped. With 4 adults and the speedometer reading 40KM/H at 4 lever, when I tried to clive a high road of having 15 degree up, it lost power and I have to bring down to 2nd gear. Hyundai should have provided with kappa engine enstead of a scaledown santro engine for better pickup and mileage, the gearshift should have been changed to cable system to avoid vibration The basic EON having onroad price of more than 3 lakhs does not have even AC. A standardversion having AC, power steering and font powerwindow shall cost more than 3.5 lakhs onroad. Santro with similar facility costs less that this since the company and dealers are giving heavy discount on Santro. So why to go for a EON when one can have a Santro with same price and more comfort. On the similar price one can go for Estilo or Wagon-R with k-series engine. Even Santro would be a better choice tha EON with similar price. Hundai has claimed to have spent more than 800 crores and 4 years of R&D for developing EON, but it has for got to develop a good car. All other Hyndai cars are worldclass except EON. Hyundai should have done its complete homework before lunching EON.
