And as a result, the company has just unveiled its important new Eon city car for the our desi market, the model serves as Hyundai’s smallest model and was designed specifically for India, where it has its rivals directly with the country’s largest-selling car Maruti-Suzuki Alto.

According to Hyundai’s past performance this car too should be one of maximum quality, high performance and combined with attractive pricing should be quite a crowd puller.  The Eon is bound to offer some stiff competition to both Maruti Alto and Zen Estilo in the small car category.

Power is supplied by an 814cc three-cylinder petrol engine that’s mated to a five-speed manual that drives the front wheels. The three-banger is good for giving a 21.1 kmpl average as against Maruti Alto which has an average of only 19.3 kmpl.
