The second largest car manufacturer in India, Hyundai Motors India, is all set to take the wraps off its latest product, the all-new city-car called Eon. Hyundai’s long-awaited entry-level car will make its official public premiere in October, while sales will commence shortly after its official unveiling ceremony.
The report also revealed that the city-car will adopt design elements based on Hyundai’s Fluidic Sculpture design philosophy and will look more upscale than any other rival in the segment, including Suzuki Alto and Tata Nano. Those include front and side airbags, keyless entry, power windows, fog lamps, central locking and two-tone interior.
Developed at Hyundai’s research & development headquarters in Korea and India over the past four years, the new Hyundai Eon will be powered by a brand-new 814-cc three-cylinder engine, which generates 56 horsepower at 5.500 rpm and 7.6 kgm of torque at 4,000 rpm. Reportedly, the super-efficient 0.8L petrol engine achieves a mileage of 21.1 km, making the new Eon the most fuel-efficient car in the segment!
