It’s quite difficult to ticked-off Maruti. India’s premier automotive producer however has reason for a frustration and it’s originating from as far south the way it gets. While in the town of Chennai, Hyundai is active planning to inject huge headaches with their brand-new Eon. It’s focused directly at the Alto, India’s largest promoting car that has been in manufacturing for 10 years.
The Alto monopolized the part which in fact had only 1 rival – the M800 – and even with its worldwide advancement to the A-Star, Maruti chosen to keeps the Alto brand in India figuring out just how productive the car is in their general scheme of things. Therefore the Hyundai Eon in India will aim for the two Alto as well as the A-Star, not forgetting its very own stalemate, the Santro. The dirt rules to have fun with in this part to date were just price tag and effectiveness.

Style and design
The Eon is the upcoming embodiment of Hyundai Eon design with new style dialect and what now that we know as fluidic style. It’s cool and pleasing, and it’s strongly related, cosmetically, to the fresh Verna and the i10. The thing is the same abundance of outlines and designs particularly in front with all those well-defined face featuring this car. The submerged grill with the stainless line and the Hyundai company logo inlayed in the center is yet another differentiating individuality. Yet its most fascinating element is its wrap-around head lights and the beefy wheel archways.
Frame and Suspensions
The Eon is surely an all-new car from the ground-up and sports an all-new podium. The actual hatchback is 3.44 meters long, by having an overall size of 1.52 meters standing upright 1.6 meters taller. The monologue having an engine front roll drive design has been made for comfort and ease more than makeup and also to handle the multitude strains it’ll be exposed to once it gets to all 4 corners of India.
The suspensions at both sides are a blend of a MacPherson in front plus a torsion gleam at the backside. It’s updated for the town and to give best damping rather than scorching hatch-out like handling.
The Eon also oddly gives 12-inch wheels and tires on the 1st 3 versions and 13-inch around the Magna upwards to the Sports. I’d personally believe this is to give far better characteristics in the more pricey versions, yet critically who’s truly searching for powerful ability here. It’d have been much easier to keep only one profile, ideally the 145/80 R12 as opposed to the 155/70 R13, normal among all the versions. A new Eon doesn’t offer ABS on any kind of versions, features discs in advance and drums on the backside.
Engine and Transmission
The Hyundai Eon in India turns into a 3-cylinder engine that has been created at Hyundai’s R&D hub in Hyderabad. It’s the identical engine like the i10 with 1 cylinder taken out to lessen displacement. It creates 56PS of max energy in conjunction with 75Nm of torque which usually is the finest in class. Drivability isn’t good with utmost torque being made at a pretty excessive 4000rpm and that means you need to frequently move down to lower gears. In cities you’ll find yourself using 2nd and 3rd gears continually and also that retains the revs higher.
In engine rates of speed above 3000rpm it appears buzzy and tickly and the sound just drops dead out drastically once you move to excessive gears and retain the revs very low which mostly takes place on the road. But its NVH is at cozy controls and until revved really hard this engine is usually a tranquil operator. It’s extremely comparable in experience to the Alto’s 800cc motor unit, in 1st gear there’s a tiny toned area fewer than 2000 rpm that occasionally turns up in 2nd gear.
Efficiency and Performance
Using a kerb mass of 725kilos the Eon features a reasonable 77.24PS while with the high rates don’t count on the Eon to create improvement quickly. Consequently 100kmph pops up in a sluggish 20.09 seconds by time you’re inching not far from the 1 / 4 mile mark, that’s just how much mileage it goes over to go to 100kmph. The one fourth mile then uses another 8 tenths of a 2nd. Using the robust low and mid-range but noise on the top bar the Eon seems slow in the roll-ons. 3rd gear overpowering speed is reasonably speedy but move into 4th or 5th and also the 40-100kmph flows feel like an everlasting nature has handed down, both flows taking well over 30 seconds.
The Hyundai Eon engine is faster than the Alto by the slender markup but at practically 2 seconds, a margin it is. Having said that all of Hyundai’s endeavors have been placed into fuel performance,Based on the ARAI statistics the Eon comes back a standard of 21.1kmpl, on our test series on the other hand she came back 20.6kmpl in the town and on the freeway an excellent 24.3kmpl however the over-all makes for just 18.75kmpl that is a lot lesser than Hyundai boasts.
Features and Equipment
Where convenience and comfort cares the Hyundai Eon in India gives variations at 6 unique prices that are outfitted accordingly. In the standard D-Lite trim (Rs 3.69 lakh. Just about all prices ex-Delhi) for example you get nothing apart from a car with 4 doors, 4 seats plus an engine. Absolutely no air-con, no vitality steering, practically nothing, the actual D-Lite with air-con substitute comes for Rs.3.80 lakh.
I used to be shocked that in the lower cut you don’t even have the flask holder in the door patches. Aren’t door patches typical across the variety? The electronic power steering choice is provided by the Time (Rs 3.14 lakh) way up. The item only starts showing 3 versions up with the actual Magna (Rs 3.35 lakh). The Magna with elective bundle that features a 2DIN program, Universal serial bus and aux jacks comes for Rs 3.46 lakh.
