Hyundai Eon specification list out
India's second largest car seller, Hyundai Motors is all set to launch its entry level hatchback Eon in the second week of October. There is a buzz surrounding this small car, which is surely going to shake off the automobile market. Hyundai Eon is expected to fill the empty space left by Maruti 800, but also give stiff competition to Maruti Alto, in terms of price and specifications.
The specifications of Hyundai Eon have been revealed, but not officially. According to sources, Hyundai Eon would be powered by a 814cc, 3 cylinder engine that would be capable of producing 56ps peak power and 76.5nm peak torque. The company has claimed 21.1kmpl mileage for Hyundai Eon, which would just have a petrol variant. It would have a five speed gearbox, which is the same as Hyundai Santro Xing. Hyundai Eon would be made available in six variants namely D-Lite, D-Lite (O), Era, Magna, Magna (O) and Sportz.

The base variant D-Lite would have no air-conditioner and no power steering, which would make its price real close to segment leader Maruti Alto's. D-Lite (O) would, however, have a air-conditioner, though, the power steering wouldn't be there on it. But, power steering is available in Era and other higher end variants.
Hyundai Eon's Magna variant would have 13 inch tubeless tyres, and the Magna (O) would be fitted with a music system as well. The Sportz variant of Eon would be high on safety and have a driver airbag too. Hyundai Eon's base variant would be priced at Rs. 2.5- Rs. 2.6 Lacs, which is really close to Maruti Alto's price, and thus Hyundai Eon is surely to take Hyundai's sales figures even higher.
