Hyundai Eon,A tough fighter for Alto

Alto ,the most popular car of Maruti Suzuki who always allures lower segment car market of India is going to face most fierce competition for the first time .TATA NANO when launched seemed a potential danger for but could not  challenge superior quality of Alto car.

Korean auto major Hyundai Motor Co on Thursday launched its entry level compact car Eon that has been developed specifically for the Indian market, at an introductory price of between Rs 2.69 lakh and Rs 3.71 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi).

The company, which operates through wholly owned subsidiary Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL), said the car has been designed and developed keeping Indian consumers in mind.

"Eon has been specifically built keeping in mind the varied Indian conditions and special requirements of the customers here. It will further expand our market share in the fast-growing small car segment in the Indian market," HMIL Managing Director and CEO H W Park said. 

all the 6 variants will be packed with an 814cc, three-cylinder petrol engine, mated to a five-speed manual gearbox. The base Hyundai EON D-Lite model scores on its 145/80 R12 tyres, wrapped around silver-finish steel wheels with hub caps, child locks and engine immobilizer but misses on air conditioner, electric adjustments of driver’s side wing mirror (with manual internal adjust) and is provided with a single horn. The two-tone, beige-brown interior with semi-cloth seat trim will give decent look to the D-Lite base model. Front and rear seats have fixed headrests. The single-piece folding rear seat will enhance the boot space for luggage. A cup-holder in the central console, internal boot, petrol tank release levers and digital trip- and odometers are other major attracting features in Hyundai EON D-Lite. The shift indicator light for the manual transmission is a practical feature in this model. Although this is the base model, a heater with a four-speed blower comes as standard.
Next coming on to Hyundai EON D-Lite Option model, the variant will not disappoint customers who cannot think of a car without an AC. The heater with blower is upgraded to an AC in this model. Otherwise the features are same as base variant. Hyundai has catered to Indian buyers with introducing an advance feature with every escalating model. The next in line is Hyundai EON Era with electric power steering, body-color bumpers, tinted windows, silver central console trim and a shade band on the windscreen.
Still lingering on some more specifications? Move up to the Hyundai EON Magna. This model is adorned with passenger-side ORVM, powered front windows, tilt-adjustable steering and central locking, molded door trims with full-size arm-rests and map pockets at the front. The steel tyre size goes upto 155/70 R13 but this time wheels have full wheel covers. Hyundai EON Magna Option shares everything with Magna model but one gets a CD audio system with two front speakers, USB and AUX-in, as well as a rear parcel shelf in it. Last but not the least the Hyundai EON Sportz is the king of the jungle. Right from driver side airbag, key less entry, front fog lamps and body-colored mirrors, it features door handles and metallic finish on the steering wheel. It proves its supremacy and offers value-for-money features in the car.

But perhaps the biggest advantage of this car is claimed a mileage of about 22 KMPL.In a country like India so obsessed with mileage let us see the response to real road situation.
