The Hyundai Eon was the Korean carmaker’s entry-level offering in the Indian market. It competed against established rivals such as Maruti Suzuki’s Alto 800 and Alto K10 and the Renault Kwid, among others. The little hatchback boasted of a well built cabin and frugal 800cc and 1.0-litre petrol engine options. The Eon returned an ARAI-claimed mileage of 21.1kmpl and 20.3kmpl with the 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre engines, respectively. With a price tag that ranged between Rs 3.33 lakh (800cc D Lite variant) to Rs 4.67 lakh (1.0-litre Magna Plus Optional variant), the Eon came across as a worthy alternative to Maruti Suzuki bread and butter models, the Alto.

Good for middle class also as first car
Nice car in low budget and make me feel light in a great way...
It is overall a nice car. The speed can go up to 135 kmph. Ground clearance is low. the mileage is good and goes up to 20 kmpl.
Performance is average.and good millage. totally average vehicle.
Small car with maximum specific available for that price
For an 800cc car, this is a very good performer. However the mileage has taken quite a huge setback at about 11-12 kmpl. There is no RPM-meter which makes it tricky to get optimal performance. However the small size as well as the radical styling of this car is stupendous. Driving in small lanes is a breeze even when there is a huge truck coming towards you. For people living in rented places with no parking, this car is so easy to park in any corner of the building, road, etc. Parking at roadsides when making purchases and other daily activities make this an excellent daily car.It is unfortunate that Hyundai exited this segment, as well as never promoted this car as much as the i10/20s. They should've added more safety and security features to this car as well as regular updates.
This is my first car and i am very happy with it this car is excellent for daily commute as per the size of the car it is very easy to drive in heavy traffic in city . If i talk about front look this car is getting the signature fluidic design which every Hyundai car gets and it's is very easy to do some modifications with looks from the front side . Overall i am using this car since 3 years i never regret that whether i should oft for renault kwid Hyundai Eon engine is more superior than renault kwid (800cc) Interior design is also appealing to me if anyone think of buying used eon i am definitely going to recommend
Eon is a small family car and value for money. Driving experience is very good on highways but not a good car for Indian kaccha roads. It creates lot of suspension noise inside the cabin while driving on kaccha roads. The engine is very silent but when fully boarded with 5 seats it don't provide sufficient power to pull the car even after shifting to lower gears. Sometimes engine don't take the load after gear shift..
it's 814 cc engine is more punchy than 998cc engine of my wagon R. more comfortable very good breaking interior feeling like 7 lac segment car. low ground clearance gives very good driving pleasure. 2 times on the speed of approximately 80km hr accidentally took you turn and car slipped to you turn. lowered ground clearance helped me to slide like you turn without accident.thanks Hyundai.
It"s a great replacement for other small hatchbacks in its price range... Specially the main competitor Alto by Maruti Suzuki. Because it"s stylish, small, pocket friendly, reliable engine (because it"s Hyundai), and has every thing thing to offer that a middle class future car owner looks for in their first car.
This new Alto K10 taking on the Eon 1.0 is one of the biggest car battles this year. Read on
The Hyundai Eon now comes with the 1.0-litre Kappa engine. We find out more.
Can the revival of Datsun with the Go be enough to go up against the might of the Hyundai Eon?
