Hyundai Eon begins testing
Written by Parichay Malvankar

Hyundai launched the Eon in India in 2011, and the entry level hatchback from the Hyundai stable is now in for a facelift. Images have surfaced on the internet of the Eon facelift testing on the streets, but on international soil. Expect the Eon facelift to hit the Indian streets by mid-2015.

Expected changes:

  • Revised headlamps
  • Revised tail lamps
  • Revised front and rear bumpers
  • Revised front grille
  • New design alloy wheels
  • Revised interior upholstery
  • New stereo unit

Mechanically, the Eon is expected to continue unchanged. Power is expected to come from the same 55 BHP, 800cc petrol engine and 68 BHP 1.0L petrol engine. Both engines are mated to a manual gearbox.

Maruti however has taken the game a bit higher, by adding an AMT gearbox in the Alto K10. Will be interesting to note what is Hyundai’s answer to this.
