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.

The entry level hatchback segment has been ruled by Maruti Suzuki for decades and never has a contender arrived on the scene until now. Taking the fight straight to Maruti's bread 'n' butter model, the Alto, is the all-new Hyundai Eon, which not only intends to sweep away the competition, but also redefine the rules of the entry level hatchback segment itself!
