Hyundai Xcent Overview

Hyundai’s first offering for the compact sedan segment in India was the Accent Viva which was launched very long back. As the market hadn’t matured properly then, the Accent Viva didn’t sell in good numbers despite the regular Accent selling really well back then. The Korean automaker then introduced the Xcent in 2014, which is based on the Grand i10 and this compact sedan has been a good seller for Hyundai. The vehicle has now got a mid-life facelift following the Grand i10 so let us find out what additional things does the Xcent now offer.

The Hyundai Xcent has good demand with private buyers and excellent demand with the commercial fleet segment. To differentiate between these two, Hyundai will offer the facelifted Xcent only to private buyers while fleet operators will get the older Xcent in a stripped down version.

Hyundai Xcent Exterior & Look

The current Xcent was launched at the 2014 Auto Expo and it got its facelift in 2017. The new car should have an all-new platform that will beshared with Kia Motors. This new platform will be wider, offer longer wheelbase and will be more flexible. The 2020 Hyundai Xcent will offer more features and new, better-performing engines too. This car is also going to be made keeping in mind the Hyundai Xcent 2019’s export to South America and other regions.

The wheels on the car will be functional. The front grill will see a slight change. The front portion of the car will resemble the Grand i10 Nios. All these changes will make the car look sharp and its road presence will become better. It will continue to have big windows which make the car feel spacious.

The Xcent should get more in line with the current design language in Hyundai cars. We will see sleeker, crisper lines and reduced bulges. We could see things like projector headlamps and LED tail lamps from its elder brother, the Verna, make their way onto this car. With width increasing and a more proportionate stance, tire sizes could go up to 16-inches. There might be even a good chance that the keyless-entry-system will come offered on lower models.

Hyundai Xcent Interior & Comfort

We expect the cabin to be very fresh with a lot of hand me downs from the Verna and Elantra. We hope to expect features like ventilated seats and a sunroof come through in this update. But features like wireless charging wouldn’t be bad. If there is an automatic coming with the 2020 Hyundai Xcent it could be possible that it gets paddle-shifters behind the steering wheel. Added features that will make it great would be cruise control, something the Honda Amaze gets but not the class-leading Maruti DZire.

Seat fabrics will get better and so will the material. We hope to see a good interior done in piano black with none of the cars in the segment having one. We can expect leather seats to come as an option and also an increase in airbags. The only compact sedan to have 6 airbags as of now is the Ford Aspire. There will be a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The center console will have a bigger touchscreen and the update will have Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Other normal features like automatic climate control, a cooled glovebox and loads of storage features should come without saying with the 2020 Hyundai Xcent.

Hyundai Xcent Engine & Transmission

It’s the thing under the hood that makes the real difference in terms of driving pleasure. The company has tweaked the engine line-up for maximum performance. The 1.2L U2 CRDi diesel engine is now capable of making 75PS, (3PS more) and 190Nm (10Nm extra) of torque. The transmission duties are handled by 5-speed manual gearbox. The automatic diesel version is still much demanded. For more details on Hyundai Xcent visit Midasedu

The petrol engine is the 1.1L Kappa Dual VTVT motor which produces 83PS and 114Nm of max torque. The petrol version can be availed in either 5-speed manual or automatic transmission. The noise and vibration levels in the petrol driven Xcent has been refined which makes it behave well on roads.The diesel version with high power and torque capacity now gives improved driving experience. The best way to drive the car is to choose the moderate sweet spot and you can feel the strong and effortless driving on the go.

Hyundai claims that the new Xcent returns improved mileage figures as the engines have been improved. Where the diesel powered variant delivers ARAI certified mileage of 25.4kmpl, the petrol version, on the other hand, reads 20.14kmpl. The petrol automatic is though, a little low, returning 17.36kmpl.

Hyundai Xcent Ride & Handling

The Hyundai Xcent has a soft suspension setup which results in a smooth ride for the passengers. The setup is slightly stiffer compared to the Grand i10 but the ride remains supple most of the times. However, uneven road surfaces tend to unsettle the car easily. On straights, the Xcent remains stable even at speeds well over the ton. The steering is feather light which is a boon in traffic and while parking but it lacks any sort of feel or feedback. It doesn’t even weigh up at high speeds and doesn’t instil confidence. Braking performance is sharp like other Hyundai cars and the grip from the tyres is average

Hyundai Xcent Braking & Safety

Braking has never been a problem in Hyundai cars and Xcent is no exception. The responsibility of braking lies on the disc brakes at the front and drum at the rear. The braking system does its job quite judiciously with strong bite force. Looking at the growing safety concerns as well as the competition among the peers, the carmaker has decided to give dual airbags as standard fitment in the car.However, it would have been better to have included ABS as a part of standard safety feature to keep pace with the competition. Nevertheless, the ABS, rear parking sensors, engine immobilizer, central locking, keyless entry and front fog lamps, all can be availed in higher models.

Hyundai Xcent Conclusion

The Hyundai Xcent is a well-rounded compact sedan because it offers excellent efficiency with the diesel engine, good performance, equipment and comfort. It is backed by Hyundai’s huge after-sales network. The Xcent doesn’t really have any major downsides except the handling part and is a very good contender in the compact sedan segment and the pricing of the car is attractive enough too.

Hyundai Xcent is offered in six different variants namely E, E+, S, S (AT), SX and SX (O). Talking about the pricing details, Hyundai Xcent’s base trim has been tagged at Rs. 5.54 lakh for the petrol and Rs. 6.42 lakh for the diesel trim. Its top ranging model gets the price tag of Rs. 7.65 lakh for petrol and goes up to Rs. 8.58 lakh for the diesel one. The top-selling variant 1.2 VTVT S trim is tagged at Rs. 6.5 lakh. The updated Xcent has really upped the game against Maruti Dzire, Honda Amaze, Volkswagen Vento and Tata Tigo in the space, where it has been finding hard to make its place for a couple of years.

Hyundai Xcent First Look Review

Painpeters

Hyundai Xcent Overview

The Xcent is Hyundai’s answer to the hot selling Maruti Suzuki Dzire. But, while the latter sells over 15,000 units a month on an average, the Hyundai doesn’t even manage to ship 3,000. And there are two main reasons for that. The bigger issue with the Xcent has been its styling; not only did it look identical to its hatch sibling, the Grand i10, from the front, it also had an uninspiring looking rear end.

The second problem, which is a more recent one, is the high off-take for the car in the taxi segment. This has clearly affected the desirability aspect of the compact sedan among private car buyers. Now, one might argue that the Innova and the Dzire remain unaffected by this ‘yellow plate’ crisis, but then, the Xcent just isn’t as strong a brand as the latter two. View offers on Hyundai Xcent.

Hyundai Xcent Exteriors

The big changes on the new Xcent are on the outside. It gets a new, more aggressive looking front bumper that also holds an all-new, chrome-garnished grille. The idea here is to make the Xcent look more like the Verna and the Elantra instead of the Grand i10 upon which the compact sedan is based. And with it, the car brings in an air of elegance to the design. There’s no change to the headlamp, but the fog lamps are new and the new Xcent gets LED DRLs too.

The rear styling sees a significant change as well. The tail lamps now run into the boot lid and add visual width to the car. The boot lid itself has been completely redesigned and is less curvaceous than before. It gets a chrome strip and along with a flatter looking bumper, it gives the Xcent much-needed freshness.There’s no change to the profile of the car, including the alloy wheel design, which is carried as is. But, look closer and you’ll see the addition of the ‘shark-fin’ antenna instead of a regular one.

Hyundai Xcent Interiors

Contrasting the relatively flashy exterior is a cabin that’s sophisticated and like the Grand i10, offers segment-leading quality. Once in, you’re welcomed by ergonomic perfection. All the controls fall to hand easily and things will feel familiar quickly even if you’ve never owned a Hyundai before. To know more info on Hyundai Xcent check Midasedu

The instrument cluster does look dated now, but it’s easy on the eyes. However, Hyundai could have at least added a distance-to-empty and average fuel efficiency display to the MID with the facelift. An opportunity missed! Existing owners will immediately notice that the car gets new pure beige upholstery, which does make the cabin feel classier. What should have been added is adjustable headrests up front and height-adjustable seatbelts – things which wouldn’t add much to the cost, but would add a lot of convenience. Apart from that, though, the seats are quite comfortable for city driving and can support large frames well, albeit snugly.

Right from the Getz, we’ve seen Hyundai’s small cars make the best use of the cabin space available. Two six footers can sit one behind the other and the rear seat uses the car’s width well enough to free up just about enough shoulder room for three abreast. A middle occupant can be seated fairly comfortably, but only over short journeys. The fixed central head restraint is too small for adults and the rear AC console does intrude into the leg space. All four doors get adequate space for 1-litre bottles, with more room for knick-knacks too. Boot space remains the same at 407-litres and three medium sized bags can fit in with ease. However, larger suitcases can be a bit tricky, because the wheel arches do eat into the trunk space.

Technology

Features like automatic climate control and rear AC vents are carried on like before and as you’d expect, the 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system offered with the updated Grand i10 finds a place here too. The display is very easy to use and gets the added benefit of Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Even the touch response is good and we found no issues with lag, while the addition of voice commands adds some more convenience. The automatic variant, which isn’t available with this screen gets a mobile phone dock atop the dashboard, which is a thoughtful touch.

You do have to take your eyes off the road to use the touchscreen, but it’s been well-integrated and doesn’t look like an aftermarket add-on. The Xcent is still expectedly feature loaded, but Hyundai has sliced off goodies like the auto-dimming interior rearview mirror and the cluster ionizer (keeps the air inside the car clean and odour free). These features certainly added to the Xcent’s value proposition, but their absence won’t be a deal breaker for most.

Hyundai Xcent Engine

The Xcent car is powered by the new 1.2-litre diesel. It’s a three-cylinder engine that makes 75bhp. But, thanks to the additional torque compared to the older 1.1-litre engine, it hauls the Xcent around with more ease. It isn’t exactly quick. But, the improvement in drivability is significant. It makes driving the new car in the city and out on the highway a more relaxing affair.

The turbo lag is less pronounced, the throttle response is crisper and the car now requires less shifts to keep the desired pace. The new engine works best between 1,600 to 4,000rpm. Revving it higher is a bit pointless, as things only get louder with no meaningful increase in the rate of progress. The gearshifts meanwhile are short throw and precise and the clutch is light too, which works well in bumper-to-bumper traffic.

Given that Hyundai hasn’t bothered with other mechanical changes on the new Xcent, the ride and handling remains almost the same as before. The ride is still plush at low speeds, and with decent visibility and maneuverability, the Xcent makes for an easy car to live within the city. But, the soft suspension setup doesn’t cope very well with the increase in speed.

Hyundai Xcent Driving

In terms of ride and handling, the new Xcent is pretty similar to the older car. So, the ride at low speeds is quiet and comfortable but it does get noisy and a bit harsh at higher speeds and over poor roads. The handling, thanks to the lack of connect from both the steering and the chassis in general, is not the most involving. The new Xcent will go around bends without feeling wayward or loose, yes, but it’s not something you look forward to like you would in the Amaze or even the Dzire.

Hyundai Xcent Safety

Hyundai now offers dual front airbags as standard across the Xcent’s variant range. The top three variants also get rear parking sensors, while the top two get a reversing camera with the feed relayed to the touchscreen infotainment system. However, while ABS was a standard offering, it’s now limited to the range-topping SX and SX (O) grade. At the least, ABS should have been optional for the lower variants.

Hyundai Xcent Cost in Bangalore

Hyundai Xcent On Road Price is 6,85,410/- and Ex-showroom Price is 5,65,354/- in Bangalore. Hyundai Xcent comes in 5 colours, namely Wine Red,Marina Blue,Sleek Silver,Star Dust,Polar White. Hyundai Xcent comes with FWD with 1197 CC Displacement and 4 Cylinders with Maximum Power 82 bhp@6000 rpm and Peak Torque 114 Nm@4000 rpm DRIVE TRAIN FWD and reaches 100 KMPH at N/A . Hyundai Xcent comes with Manual Transmission with FWD .

Hyundai Xcent Conclusion

Hyundai is calling this one a stylish family sedan for the young and modern Indian family. Phew, that is a very long tag line. But, the good news for Hyundai is that the new Xcent comes close to justifying it. It’s more stylish that before, yes. And since it can seat four (yes, the seats are comfy too), it’s good for a nuclear family. As for the young and modern, well almost every car in this class now has a similar feature / tech list. So, there’s no real USP there. Our suggestion would be to buy it if you are looking for a no-nonsense car with good service backup.

Hyundai Creta Review & First Drive

Offers On Hyundai Creta In Hyderabad

Hyundai Creta Overview

Since its launch in 2015, the Hyundai Creta has caught the fancy of Indian buyers. It’s been a big seller from day one, and given how well the Creta has been doing, Hyundai was understandably not in a tearing hurry to launch the facelifted Creta in India. But here it is. The Creta gets a visual makeover, more features and minute changes to its mechanicals. As before, it’s available with a 1.4-litre diesel, and 1.6 petrol and diesel engines, both with manual and automatic gearbox options. With this update, Hyundai has also trimmed the variant count from seven to five. Prices have changed but with feature additions, so has the value proposition.

We got our hands on the updated Hyundai Creta in the fully-loaded 1.6-litre diesel-manual form.

Hyundai Creta Design

The Hyundai Creta gets a mid-life makeover and in its latest avatar comes across as a more handsome-looking car. Changes are more concentrated towards the front and as a result, you now get the signature cascade effect grille that looks more imposing. The projector headlight setup gets subtle tweaks as well and they no more house the LED DRLs. The lower part of the front bumper gets a faux silver skid plate that adds to the SUV appeal. The fog lamps are a size down now and the LED DRLs have been positioned near them. To know more info on Hyundai Creta  check Jsrr

At the sides, nothing much has changed save for the new 17-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels which have a new design. The rear looks identical to the pre-facelifted car except for the shark-fin antenna and the silver skid plate. The compact SUV is now available in two new colours – Passion Orange and Marina Blue.

Hyundai Creta Cabin

Inside the cabin, the Hyundai Creta facelift comes with an equally stylish appearance as the exterior. It gets multifunction steering wheel, analog and digital display consisting large instrument cluster and a larger touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. In terms of space it comes same as the pre-facelift version. However, the addition of the sunroof in higher trim, updated seat and upholstery material along with silver accents at various places increased the premium appeal of the SUV.

Hyundai Creta Engine

The Creta comes with one petrol and two diesel engines. All are offered with six-speed manual, while the petrol and bigger diesel are made available with a six-speed automatic also. Where the Hyundai crete excels is engine refinement. The Creta diesels are so quiet, it feels like a petrol engine. The engines on the Hyundai Creta are powerful and have good enough torque.

There is more than sufficient power at almost all engine speeds. This makes it a good option to consider as driving in city traffic or even on the highway is a breeze. In terms of performance, one can overtake with ease. There isn’t much of a need to downshift. The engine is a bit sluggish at low rpms, but that bandwidth is minimal. Hyundai had recently announced that there will be no all-wheel drive version for the Creta in India. It will continue to sell the front-wheel drive version, at least for the time being.

The petrol engine returns 15.29 kmpl of mileage. The 1.4-litre CRDi engine generates 21.38 kmpl of mileage, while the 1.6-litre diesel engine returns 19.67 kmpl and 17.01 kmpl for the manual and automatic variants respectively.

Hyundai Creta Riding

Hyundai also claims to have fine-tuned the suspension setup, although the difference isn’t substantial. The suspension is still on the softer side and does well at low speeds. While most of the bumps and potholes are dismissed easily, some sharp ones do manage to filter into the cabin. The steering also continues to be light and easy to use, but doesn’t give the sense of connect you’d want at high speeds. Also, high-speed ride feels soggy and doesn’t feel as settled or composed as what you’d get in the Renault Duster or Captur.

Hyundai Creta Safety

Dual airbags and ABS with EBD are offered as standard across the range of the 2018 Hyundai Creta. However, the top-spec trim gets four additional airbags, Hill Start Assist and Vehicle Stability Management as well. Hyundai has a vast sales and service network across the country and the quality of service also has been great.

Hyundai Creta Price in Hyderabad

Hyundai Creta On Road Price is 11,24,829/- and Ex-showroom Price is 9,50,008/- in Hyderabad. Hyundai Creta comes in 8 colours, namely Red Passion,Mystic Blue,Phantom Black,Polar White Dual Tone,Sleek Silver,Polar White,Stardust,Red passion Dual Tone. Hyundai Creta comes with FWD with 1591 CC Displacement and 4 Cylinders with Maximum Power 121 bhp@6400 rpm and Peak Torque 151 Nm@4850 rpm DRIVE TRAIN FWD and reaches 100 KMPH at N/A . Hyundai Creta comes with Manual Transmission with FWD . Check for Hyundai Creta On Road Price in Hyderabad at Tryaldrive.

Hyundai Creta Verdict

The 2018 Hyundai Creta gets more equipment and the minor tweaks, especially the diamond-cut alloy wheels and the new grille make it look more premium and bold. The Creta has always been a very good package and that has reflected in its sales and with this updated version, we expect the sales to shoot up even further because a good car has become better.

Hyundai Eon Performance & Price

Hyundai Eon Overview

When Hyundai Eon was launched, it made almost all the heads turn thanks to its attractive design, which was non-existent in its segment. Yes, the Maruti Alto 800 may be the best selling car in the country, but we all would agree it’s not particularly expressive. So, when Hyundai launched Eon, the vibes were so strong that the Maruti launched a special edition variant of the then Alto just a day before the Eon launch. Hyundai Eon has the big responsibility to follow the footsteps of the iconic Santro that put the Korean car company on the right track.

Hyundai Eon price in Chennai

Hyundai Eon brings to the table what the other cars have failed to at the same time inspired other companies (read Renault with their Kwid) to bring a great looking car that offers best-in-class build quality, good fuel economy and lots of features in this segment. In typical Hyundai way.The Eon is certainly eons ahead of what the Alto offers and is almost head on with the Renault Kwid. So close, that we couldn’t come to a conclusion between the two. The biggest advantage the Eon holds over the Kwid is that it’s available without a waiting period, however the Kwid is more appealing as it is the new k(w)id on the block.

Hyundai Eon Style

The Eon is the next embodiment of Hyundai’s new design language and what we now know as fluidic design. It’s funky and eye catching, and it’s closely related, cosmetically, to the new Verna and the i10. You see the same profusion of lines and shapes especially at the front with those well defined cheekbones highlighting this car. The sunken grille with the chrome strip and the Hyundai logo embedded in the centre is another distinguishing character. Yet its most interesting feature are its wraparound headlamps and the beefy wheel arches.

Viewed from a three quarter angle those clear lens headlamps with elaborately designed reflectors looked like giant Chinese soup spoons to me. But they are attractive and along with the rest of the elements adorning the Eon’s face garner a lot of attention. The rear hatch area is also very attractively turned out complemented by the crescent moon shaped tail lamps. The hatch looks a bit small though access to the boot is easy and unrestricted. Overall the Eon appears to be a very busy pallet yet it has a smooth cohesive sense about it which makes it attractive.

The Eon also has a very nice stance, contrary to Hyundai’s tall boy designs in the past the Eon looks short and wide, hunkering down with a quiet confidence. It’s less than 3.5 metres long and just a little over 1.5 metres wide with a 1.38-metre wide track and 170mm of ground clearance. It’s compact and yet looks much larger than the Alto, in fact it almost looks as large as its sibling the i10.

Hyundai Eon Space

Ideally seeing just how large the Eon is for an entry level compact car should prepare you for the shock of its interior. This is by far the most spacious cabin in any entry level compact car. I could easily seat four of me and have space for one more mini-me. Do not expect it to be a full 5-seater, not without three people in the rear bench getting too intimate. What does happen is generous knee room for rear seat passengers with ample shoulder space. At the front it’s a bit of a squeeze sideways, and the driver will always bang elbows with the passenger when trying to shift gears.For Hyundai Eon visit painpeters

Design wise this is an ergonomically sound cabin. It has the same sense of flair as we have come to see in the most contemporary Hyundais. The gentle crests and troughs keep it interesting and I like the small cap the upper layer of the dashboard forms over the centre stack. Even on bright sunny days the shadow it throws over the stereo panel will ensure clear readability. The controls for the air-con and the stereo are simple to use though I did think that the profusion of buttons on the stereo panel could have been trimmed down a bit. Nevertheless that centre stack is nicely designed with the entire dashboard cascading into that single area.

The instrument console features a simple three pod layout, with a large speedometer placed in the centre and flanked by the temperature and fuel gauge on either side. The dials are clear and easy to read. A small window inside the speedo pod relays basic trip and odo readings and also indicates the correct gear to drive in. The interiors are also nicely styled with a two tone shade and bursts of faux aluminium inserts across the dashboard and the door pads making the interior feel rich. The cabin is also quite practical and apart from the generous amounts of space you also get several storage bins and bottle holders. There is also a very generous boot with 215 litres of storage space and the rear bench folds down to provide more if required.

A USB port allows iPod connectivity, I’m not certain how well it operates but just in case it does not accept your device there is an aux port below it, so a solution is available. Fit and finish is very good, the shut lines are tight and look like they will stay that way for a long time. The doors close with a well meant thud, the seats are supportive despite looking pretty slim, there aren’t any unfinished areas and I genuinely believe Hyundai has now fully understood low cost engineering allayed to high quality very well.

Hyundai Eon Engine

The Hyundai Eon in India gets a 3-cylinder engine that was developed at Hyundai’s R&D centre in Hyderabad. It’s the same engine as in the i10 with one cylinder removed to reduce displacement. It makes 56PS of max power along with 75Nm of torque which is the best in class. Driveability isn’t great with max torque being generated at a fairly high 4000rpm which means you have to constantly shift down to lower gears. In urban areas you will find yourself using second and third gears constantly and that also keeps the revs high.

At engine speeds above 3000rpm it sounds buzzy and scratchy and the sound only dies out considerably when you shift to higher gears and keep the revs low and that largely happens on the highway. Yet its NVH is within comfortable limits and unless revved hard this engine is a quiet operator. It’s also very similar in feel to the Alto’s 800cc engine, in first gear there is a small flat spot under 1500 rpm that intermittently also shows up in second gear. At times unless revved hard it feels like the engine is dying out even though you’ve engaged first gear and released the clutch. The 5-speed transmission is smooth to operate, however on another car it felt notchy. I guess these are some of the consistency issues that Hyundai will have to sort out. The ratios nonetheless are spaced out quite a bit to provide the best fuel efficiency rather than performance, yet first to third gears sees the Eon gain momentum quickly enough.

PERFORMANCE & EFFICIENCY

With a kerb weight of 725kilos the Eon has a decent 77.24PS per tonne though with the tall ratios don’t expect the Eon to make progress very fast. So 100kmph comes up in a lazy 19.08 seconds by which time you are also inching very close to the quarter mile mark, that’s how much distance it covers to get to 100kmph. The quarter mile then takes another eight tenths of a second. With the strong low and mid range but just noise at the top the Eon feels slow in the roll-ons. Third gear overtaking acceleration is decently fast but shift into fourth or fifth and the 40-100kmph runs feel like an eternity has passed, both runs recording well over 25 seconds.

The Eon is quicker than the Alto by a slim margin but at nearly two seconds, a margin it is. That said all of Hyundai’s efforts have been put into fuel efficiency. According to the ARAI figures the Eon returns an overall of 21.1kmpl, on our test cycles however she returned 15.6kmpl in the city and on the highway a brilliant 24.3kmpl but the overall adds up to just 17.75kmpl which is much lesser than what Hyundai claims.

Hyundai Eon Driving

As far as the ride quality and handling characteristics are concerned, both the 0.8L and 1.0L behave similarly as there are no differences in the suspension setup. The Hyundai Eon gets the typical McPherson strut to the front and torsion beam axle to the rear for the suspension duties. While the Eon goes smooth as long as the roads are smooth and can absorb slight aberrations of without a problem. But as the going gets tough, the Eon does get going but you will feel each and every bit of those large bumps. Book Hyundai Eon Test Drive in Tryaldrive.

When it comes to handling, predictable is the word that describes that of the Eon. Hyundai Eon doe a neat job of going around the city traffic without any drama. Over the highways, while the straight line stability is good, going around the curves will rob you off the confidence. The skinny tyres are the major reason and hence we recommend wider tyre upgrade at the earliest. The tyres take no time to understeer if pushed hard and the body roll also crops in.

While the light steering is good for the city commutes, the feedback from it is almost nonexistent on the highways. The brakes though have a nice bite to them and inspire confidence during high speed braking situations.

Hyundai Eon Safety

Hyundai has partly taken care of the safety by equipping the vehicle with a single driver side airbag. The reinforced cage of Eon is remarkably strong and has crumple zones to absorb the impact in an event of collision. There are impact beams on the doors of the car, making it pretty safe and strong. Even the floor of the Eon has impact beams to keep the cage safe.

There are self-restraining seat belts for the driver and all the passengers. Eon also offers child safety lock on the rear doors, which refrains children from opening the doors from inside the vehicle. The Eon also comes with a remote control security system for convenience. The Eon is pretty loaded on paper, but most of these features come with the top variants only. Otherwise, Eon is a pretty sorted-out vehicle. The top trim also features fog lamps and engine immobilizer, which are not generally seen in this segment. In short, the car is feature rich, but most versions don’t have them.

Hyundai Eon Cost in Chennai

Hyundai Eon On-Road Price in Chennai ranges from 3,70,579 to 5,13,846 for variants EON D Lite and EON Magna O Optional respectively. Hyundai Eon is available in 11 variants and 5 colours. Below are details of Hyundai Eon variants price in Chennai. .

Hyundai Eon Conclusion

No matter which way you look at it, the Eon has managed to achieve what many have set out to do. It truly is the first car that has all the elements in place to take on the mighty Alto. Hyundai’s engineering prowess, determination and ever improving production skills are highlighted through this product. The Eon is a surprise that you really enjoy receiving and the beauty of the entire package is that Hyundai has managed to price it bang on target. Its the ultimate value-for-money option in its category and the only reason I can think of not wanting to buy an Eon if I happen to be an entry level segment customer is if I was adamant on having a faster car, namely the Alto K10.
