This flamboyantly styled entry level hatchback from Hyundai, took everyone by surprise when it was first launched in 2011. Sharing its platform with the Hyundai Santro, it has nothing else in common with the previous small car for the masses.
The Eons exterior finds the most extensive use of the Hyundai's Fluidic design philosophy. Not to everyone's taste, the design looks quite striking and distinctive. The car has a sloping front end. The A-pillars merge with the bonnet forming prominent creases just above the large swept back headlamps. The front grille and the air dam are enclosed in a hexagonal shape on the front bumper with the fog lamps embedded on its either side. The side profile gets a shoulder crease which touches the headlights and the taillights on either end. It also gets swelled wheel arches and slight depression on the bottom of the doors. At the rear, we have large taillights which completely surround the rear window and touch the roof integrated spoiler.
Eon's cabin not only looks premium but feels like one too. The beige and black dual tone interiors are elegantly sculpted. The center console gets a silver colored standard multimedia system with ergonomic dials for the air con unit. The silver highlights on the dashboard, steering wheel, and door handles add to the superior feel. The instrument cluster accommodates three separate dials for speed, fuel, and temperature. Storage spaces of all sizes are scattered through out Eon's cabin and it comes with a decent boot space of 215 liters. The top-spec Sportz model comes with CD player with USB input, keyless entry, steering tilt adjust and front power windows.
Engine and performance
The Hyundai Eon is available with 2 petrol engine options, 0.8 liter unit which produces 56bhp and 74Nm of torque and a recently introduced 1.0-liter unit which churns out 69bhp and 94Nm or torque. Both engines transfer the power to the front wheels through a 5-speed manual gearbox.
This small entry level hatchback from Hyundai competes against the likes of Maruti Alto 800 and Datsun Go. Superb. It's look is superb compared to other fewer valve cars. More spacious than alto and it has more leg space and high comfort. Performance is not so good and not so bad, it has more fuel efficiency, little difficult with gear changing.
Average handling and ride quality. Overall it's a grt car. only the negative that can be projected is its low power, other than that it is a nyc car.
