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.

Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying EON

Q. Can I exchange Eon D-Lite 2012 model with Grand i10 Nios. Then how much money I want to give in buying Grand i10 Nios.
  • It really depends on car's condition amd the place where you live in. i sold my eon 1.0 kappa magna plus option in september 2019 for 2.5 lacs which was 24k kms and 4 years old. i would advise to sell the car to an individual or exchange at a hyundai dealership to get deaired value of your car. stay away from cars 24 etc. that is a waste of time in my opinion, they quote a price at which a scrap car can be sold in open market.
  • That depends upon the dealer and your location
  • Contact to local Dealers
Q. Is it convenient for long drives - EON?
  • 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
  • Yes not as we think for 4 people with adequate luggage. adequate suspension good mileage power view adequate leg room and head room.you can take it for a stretch of 300 kms. taking some breaks.

Q. U have lot of models for Eon which one is best please explain?
  • Eon is entry level vehicle. So go for budget features only like AC, Power steering and front power windows. De fogger, back ac vent, headrest, back power window, big tyres, abs, air bags are all luxury features. If u wanna these please go for i20, swift, polo etc.
  • Go for 1.0 kappa models as the 800cc engine feels under powered when loaded with AC on. 1.0 liter engine is more powerful, pulls without hesitation and has better controled NVH levels over the 0.8 liter varients. In 1.0 liter you can get only magna plus and magna plus (o) varients.
  • I would prefer ERA +

    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.
