Hyundai will launch its most severe attack on Maruti Suzuki with the launch of its Eon small car. The Korean automaker is squarely aiming at the Alto, which is the bread and butter model for the Japanese automaker. Now the uncamouflaged interior and exterior of the Hyundai Eon have been snapped which shows the very smart looking small car. At the front the Fluidic design looks excellent and gives the Eon a big car feeling. The model snapped here is the Sportz variant, which will be the top model. We love the front of the Eon but the rear could have been better. The interiors are of very high quality for a car of this price and features two tone dashboard. The interior features an MP3 audio player with USB compatibility, while ABS and dual airbags are expected to be available as an option.
What Hyundai has successfully managed to do is make a small car which would sit below the i10 and offer the best quality for the price. The interiors are undoubtedly the best we have seen in a small car till date, with the steering wheel looking decent to hold and the silver accents on the center console adding brightness to the car. Hyundai has taken special care to design the Eon, which they have developed mainly for developing markets like India. Thus the company has tested more than a dozen size water bottles for the storage spaces. Power would come through a 800 cc motor which is a 3-pot unit and produces 56 PS of power and 75 Nm of torque. With 21.1 kmpl of mileage, the Eon will only make trouble at Maruti Suzuki more intense.
