Eon is Hyundai’s new small car

Will be powered by 800cc engine and priced under Rs 3 lakh.


Hyundai’s all-new small car known until now by its codename HA will be called Eon. This baby hatch will compete head-on with the Maruti Alto.

Eon, which means an 'indefinitely long period of time' suggests that this car, which is likely to replace the 13-year old Santro, is slated for a long innings in India too.

This all-new car will be powered by a three-cylinder 800cc engine, expected to develop around 50bhp and as our illustrations show, the new Hyundai scores high in the styling department. It certainly has Hyundai written all over it.

The Eon doesn't share the Santro's tall boy proportions but Interior space is expected to be better than the Alto. The Eon is expected to go on sale this October with a starting price of under Rs 3 lakh.
