The very much anticipated launch of the year is Hyundai’s 800cc small car ‘Eon’ aka H800. This car has been spotted many times in and around India with and without camouflage. Now our unidentified Bharathautos.com reader from Mangalore has sent us snaps of the upcoming Hyundai Eon spotted at a dealer just before the launch on 13th of October.
As we told earlier the bookings for the upcoming Hyundai Eon is due to launch on 13th of October. Bookings for the car have already started at the dealerships for an amount of Rs. 25,000. Test drives will be available from 14th onwards. Hyundai, anticipating the future demand in advance has already dispatched over 7000 units to various dealerships so that customers don’t face any delay in deliveries.
From the above spyshot one can surely makeout the visual different between the variants the base variant may not have body coloured bumpers, air-condition or power steering. While snapped here is mid- variant and top-end variant. Mid-variant comes with the following Body colour bumper, Body colour plus chrome radiator grille, Metal finish centre fascia, Passenger side OSRVM, Motor driven power steering, All round tinted glasses, Front tinted windshield with shade and EPS indicator.
Talking about the top-end variant it gets a Full wheel cover, Steel wheel with black finish, Tilt steering, Central locking (driver side), , Moulded door trims, Front door map pockets (driver and co driver), Speaker grill-RR boot, Internally adjustable OSRVMS, Front power windows, Micro roof antenna, Front door full size armrest, Audio (CD/MP3/FM/AM), USB and aux-in, 2 speakers only (front doors), Rear parcel tray, Driver airbag, Keyless entry, Front fog lamp-clear lens, Body coloured door handles and OSRVM, 3 spoke aluminum finish steering wheel, Metal finish inside door handle and Airbag warning signal on console.
It is expected that base variant of Hyundai Eon will be priced around 3 lakh and top variant will be priced around 4.20 lakh (On-Road price, Karnataka). If Hyundai India meets this price target then it is for sure that it will be a very successful small car and will be on the top of sales charts beating the best selling cars in this class – Alto, Spark and Nano. Even the top model (Sportz) will sell in decent numbers because at Rs. 4.20 lakhs it is a steal provided it comes with all the expected comfort and safety features.
This little car from Hyundai’s stable will be powered by an 814cc motor which produced 55 bhp of power and 76.5 Nm of torque. It’s mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox with an ARAI certified mileage of 21.1 kmpl. This makes it more fuel economic than the largest selling car in India, the Maruti Suzuki Alto.
