About Hyundai EON

The Hyundai Eon was the most affordable Hyundai in the country and before being discontinued it was priced between Rs 3.33 lakh and Rs 4.67 lakh (ex-showroom Mumbai), and came in a total of 16 variants and nine colour options. Back in its heyday it went up against established rivals such as Maruti Suzuki’s Alto 800 and Alto K10 and the Renault Kwid, among others.

Hyundai EON Overview

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.

Q. Which one is better Alto 800 or Hyundai Eon?
  • Both are good cars in their own way.Eon became trend setter for Hyundai and was able to sell more than 4000+ vehicles monthly . In entry level hatchback after alto800(which sell about 20000+ vehicles Per month), EON is the second largest seller .If your choice is driven by the india's way who look for low repair cost, high fuel efficiency, reliable and a budget friendly car please go for Alto800.otherwise EON is a good pick. Please remember as appear from the market news after Launch of New Santro ,variant of Eon may go for re entry or a phase out , it is not clear now what next move . In Hatch backs you have many choices in Suzuki as Celerio, wagonR, Alto K10 and in Hyundai Eon, All new Santro and i10
  • If you are in the market looking for an ideal first car or even a small second car, the Hyundai Eon is worth a look since it packs a unique design and frugal engine options. While it may not be as popular as the Maruti Suzuki Alto twins, the same reason helps you stand out from the crowd too. The Eon is backed by Hyundai’s build quality and extensive service network. Both engine options are frugal in nature and the 0.8-litre can also be had with an LPG kit as well. Finally, it’s compact dimensions should make it a breeze to drive in our crowded cities too.
  • It's definitely going to be the hyundai eon, if what you need is the quality..and if the resale value is what you're really looking forward to, then look no further maruti suzuki is still the king..If your buying the eon, then choose the 1.0 kappa magna..it is the best for the small car and it isn't that expensive either..And for the maruti, choose the LXI (Airbag)..Hope you got the answer.

Q. Is it convenient for long drives - EON?
  • Yes you can go for long drives with Eon and we would suggest you to opt 1.0L Kappa engine. When it comes to handling, predictable is the word that describes that of the Eon. Hyundai Eon doe a neat job of going around the city traffic without any drama. Over the highways, while the straight line stability is good, going around the curves will rob you off the confidence. The skinny tyres are the major reason and hence we recommend wider tyre upgrade at the earliest. The tyres take no time to understeer if pushed hard and the body roll also crops in. While the light steering is good for the city commutes, the feedback from it is almost nonexistent on the highways. The brakes though have a nice bite to them and inspire confidence during high speed braking situations.
  • It is ok for 4 people of average built and for about 300 to 350 kms things over this might feel vulnerable to breakdown. i have done Hyderabad to Hampi in Eon with 4 people...it scratched its belly over bad speed breakers otherwise all good.
  • My answer is no but if you have to travel then you can drive in like 80kmph with ac on and if you want to drive speed like 100kmph then you have to turn off the ac otherwise engine will make unnecessary sound

    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.
