The Hyundai Eon is expected to battle with other small cars like the Maruti Alto and the Maruti A-Star and is all set to dethrone Maruti as the market leader in the small car segment. The car looks neatly done with utmost care taken even for the minute details. The Eon certainly has the looks to keep your eyes gazed on it for quite some time. The Hyundai Eon too also embodies the modern fluidic styling and gives it all the characteristics of a low cost car. 

The wheel arches and shoulder line are all quite intriguing for a small car and don’t be surprised if you ever come up across something similar to the Eon only in the likes of Mercedes-Benz CLS. The front fiasco has a shade of the Hyundai’s hexagonal grille up front and eye catchy floodlights with the chrome.

“New car launches are determined on the basis of the long-term outlook on a market. Our outlook on the Indian market in the medium and long-term is very positive. We want to address the Indian customer with regular product launches," Hyundai director (marketing & sales) Arvind Saxena said. "Eon is the best bet for Hyundai to increase sales after relatively sound success of its smaller cars like Santro," said a Mumbai-based auto analyst.

The wheelbase is similar to the likes of other small car contemporaries with measurement of 2380mm. However it is on the shorter side compared to the Santro and light in weight as well. The steel has been craftily used with altering thickness making the Eon both Stubborn and nippy in weight. The car is only a meager 715-795kg taking it to the likes of Maruti’s Alto, which is saying something. The interior of the car shares the credit with the well knitted out i10, and is cleverly arranged with little shelves and cubbyholes. The car is bolstered with enough features like a CD player, USB audio, remote locking, a shift indicator on the dash and tilt steering.The windscreen is on the steeper side and shorter as well.

This makes the space availability come at a premium. The congestion is further increased by the boot space which is best in its class with a capacity of up to 215 litres of luggage. This means that if the driver at the front is tall then the passenger at the rear will be short of space.

You will have some relief as there is some space to place your feet under the front seats as the front seats are erect and upright. With a decent thigh support and head space, it is not all that bad. The best place to be though is the driver’s end with a humungous space.

The Eon has a three-cylinder copy of the Santro IRDE engine. With 814cc and 56bhp you will have something left to rev it up. The refinement of the three-cylinder falls short of expectations as there seems to be considerable amount of vibration at idle. The engine even rattles at times but does seem to respond on higher rpm. In the mid range the car seems to have the entire world under its control and will most probably ease you through any city terrains.

In terms of the road presence for a small car it seems to stand up and deliver quite well. The Eon is an eagle at chicanes. The alternator management system, light weight and efficient engine of the Hyundai Eon make the car have a petrol thirst for once in every 21.1kpl. All these ingredients ensure the taste of the Hyundai Eon lingers on the roads for a long time to come.
