Expected Price of hyundai New Eon: Rs 3.00 L – 4.50 L
Expected Launch Date: October 2015
The Eon is Hyundai’s most affordable offering in India. By which it means that this is also one of its most important cars in the market. Ever since it made its global debut in India during October of 2011, the Hyundai Eon has been known for its cute design and upmarket interiors.
Now, four years later Hyundai is looking to freshen up the appeal of the Eon with a mid life cycle face-lift. While the basics of the Eon will remain the same, what the face-lift will seek to do is give the Eon a more grown up look in sync with Hyundai’s current design language. This means the updated version of the car in all likely hood will get a bigger front grille and bolder head lamp design. Expect similar minor design tweaks to the rear profile of the car. The side profile of the face-lifted Eon is expected to remain the same as that of the current model, apart from the wheel cap design .
The Hyundai Eon is known for its upmarket interiors and the new model is expected to take the game further in this department with revised trim and seat fabric, along with a few bits of more equipment. The highlight though ofcourse will be a new double-DIN stereo that will be more premium and pack in more features.
Under the hood, the Eon will continue to be powered by the same range of petrol engines consisting of a 800cc unit and a 1.0 litre unit. There are also unconfirmed reports of the Eon being fitted with Hyundai’s 1.1 litre three cylinder diesel engine that does duty in models such as the Grand i10.
Expect the face-lifted Hyundai Eon to be priced in the range of Rs. 3 lakh to Rs. 4.5 lakh (ex-showroom).
