Eon

Wrapup

 Hyundai's take on Maruti Alto 800, Eon simply could not live up to the expectations. The initial years saw a few issues like vibration in gear lever, etc. but it was quickly sorted out. Currently, it's also available in 1.0L engine. Eon does most of the things, but a few safety features would help it sustain against recent stiff competition.

Quick Review

Positioned right at the beginning of Hyundai’s offering in India, Eon is a stylish entry level compact hatchback. Right since its inception in 2011, Eon entered a terrain which is already ruled by the highest selling Maruti Suzuki Alto which is a car that can be bought with eyes closed. But Hyundai did play its cards right and did what it does best by offering modern looks and a feature packed cabin to stay ahead from the competition. Nothing major has changed on the outside for Eon ever since its inception. Its large wraparound headlamps make the most of its small bonnet which does offer fine creases on the corner that amalgamates well onto the front grille. Manifesting its fluidic design, Eon also offers the traditional hexagonal grille but without any outlined chrome inserts. Opting for a single chrome slat grille at the centre which houses the Hyundai badging looks quite elegant yet simple. The use of stylish fog lamps in this segment along with fine cuts and all black air dam lines on the front bumper makes it look unique and hints its sports styling which is majorly done to impress young buyers. From the side is where Eon doesn’t do much and offers a very mundane look. Except for a fine character line running onto its shoulder, the small wheel arches look more small with curved lines on the front and rear fenders that somehow gives a dwarf appeal from the sides. The sharp lines on the rear bumper giving it a rectangular look seems to be quite overdone from Hyundai in order to give this compact hatch a wide look. However, on the upside, the use of large rear windscreen along with an integrated spoiler and big sweptback taillights are a savior for this hatch. Overall, Eon doesn’t disappoint at all especially considering the segment where it is placed.
