Hyundai Eon
More Photos | Video
Hyundai has been quite a powerpack in the small car space, and with the success of the Santro and Santro Xing in the early part of Hyundai's entry into India, followed by the i10 and most recently the i20, Hyundai have done terrifically in this space.

The biggest challenge for Hyundai however has been its lack of presence in the A-segment. Currently ruled by Maruti Suzuki with its 800 and Alto and to an extent by General Motors with the Chevrolet Beat, there have been no significant cars in this segment for a long while, except for the Alto K10 that was launched in mid-2010.

The Eon, however could change things and don't be surprised if more players show interest in this segment, post-Eon.

Ready for launch in the next few weeks, the Eon is based on the Santro platform and uses a lot of components from both the Santro and i10. Developed and built at a cost of US $ 350-400 mn, the Eon will be the cheapest car in Hyundai's range. A lot of its development took place in India at Hyundai's research and engineering facility in Hyderabad.

Hi Guys, I am driving the car for a month now been in & around the city, on long drives on the expressway. guys i will say that hyundai has delivered a car that is not only good in the city but also on long drives. The car is fuel efficient as i have procured a mileage of around 15-16km/ltr in the city & that extends to 18per/ltr on the highways with the air conditioner on. All in all i can say that its a car that is value for money & can be bought for its fulidic design superb interiors & spot on mileage ! I am a Happy Eon Owner ! Vickeey Pandit (Mumbai, India)

Come on, there is no perfect car anywhere when considering VFM, Re-sale, Maintenance, Space, FE etc etc. We, customers, have to compromise on something. But overall I like the way Hyundai is progressing.

As I am planning to purchase a new car in this puja,but ok ,I am waiting for this new car. When It will launch in Kolkkata ?
  Posted by Harsh at 27th September,2011
Looks and features are all fine. Hyundia cars are far too expensive to maintain,once you enter the dealership they fleece you. With Maruti this is not the case. I bought Ritz because of feedback from i20 users on services cost. So for middle class who aspire for A segment vehicles this is the most important factor they need to keep in mind.
  Posted by sarika at 27th September,2011
please send me the details of eon and when hyundai is launching.When booking will start.please this is urjent.
  Posted by Kapil at 30th September,2011
  Dear Sarika, It is assumed to be the most awaited and best automobile product of the year. The Hyundai is going to start the booking from 29 Sept. You can can book Eon by sending SMS HYUNDAI EON to 53456 or visit the nearest Hyundai dealership. Regards, Kapil

  Posted by Praveen.Bh at 20th September,2011
I Think Hyundai is entering at right tim,design is perfect . How abt mileage thts most imp
  Posted by Doc at 20th September,2011
Hyundai have managed to style it perfectly - modern, yet not vulgar like the Beat...Of course it also follows VW's trend of making all their cars look the same!! But I share Velutha and Sai Prasad's concerns...Hyundai need to add numbers and quality fast to its service dealerships if they want to upset Maruti's applecart.
  Posted by SURENDRA at 20th September,2011
THIS IS THE BEST CAR I HV EVER SEEN IN THIS RANGE IT LL CAPTURE THE MARKET VERY SOON ...... N I M GOING TO BUY THIS AS SOON AS IT LAUNCHES ....

very smart car, i shall want to take only this in it's segment
  Posted by Karizmatic at 20th September,2011
Looks better than the Alto in my books. Backed with Hyundai A**, this is a sure hit. It'll be interesting to see their share in the rural market.
  Posted by hemanth at 20th September,2011
add some more photos, want to see back space also
  Posted by santhosh jain at 20th September,2011
eon will on the thrill. i think its going to set a benchmark in its class.
  Posted by sandy at 20th September,2011
Specs sounds impressive, car wears A-star like profile, looks too much over design, in picture it looks crude lets see in the real world. Rest, rests on BSM's review. But one thing- Santro should not retire.
  Posted by krishan at 20th September,2011
looking nice

Best small car ever nice looking car happy selling to hyundai
  Posted by rohit at 19th September,2011
Amazing looks and good interiors too.Nobody will buy an alto now.
  Posted by Avinab Mohanty at 19th September,2011
If Hyundai keeps it at around Rs. 2.50 lakh then nothing like it considering the petrol price.
  Posted by Sai Prasad Chennai at 19th September,2011
I wont be surprised if Hyundai makes a better looking car than Alto, but when it comes to "Value for Money" it is very very difficult to beat Maruti, that is in terms of fuel economy, bare minimum maintenance, best resale value and above all excellent service (many hyundai fleece the customer with out the gullible customer ever knowing it. I was one of them).
  Posted by opkalani at 19th September,2011
happy to get low priced car from hyundai who is known for quality and good service. this price range segment is very potential and hyundai will have promising market share with best wishes
  Posted by Velutha at 19th September,2011
Pretty pretty! Hyundai have styled it perfectly. Crucially they have also timed it perfectly. India is ready to move on from the Alto & this is what it will be moving on to.
  Posted by Velutha at 19th September,2011
Though I do suspect you guys to be way to optimistic about its pricing as usual. I think Hyundai will slot it in between the Santro & the i10
  Posted by vaibhav at 23rd September,2011
  it is very sporty and it will be beat the maruti offcourse.
