Hyundai EON PRO’s & CON’s

  • Things We Like
  • Things we don’t like

With its fluid design language, the Hyundai Eon is a stunning car in its segment.

The Eon has the best cabin in its segment. The dashboard looks very stylish, and the cabin feels airy, thanks to the dual-tone colour of the cabin.

Fit and finish levels in the Eon's cabin are the segment best. Quality levels are awe-inspiring, considering the segment of the Eon.

The Hyundai Eon boasts good fuel efficiency figures of around 19-22 km/l.

Space at the back in the Eon is inferior. Headroom and knee room are pretty limited, and the cabin isn’t wide enough to accommodate three people in the back. Also, seat cushioning is not very significant and lacks under-thigh support.

The engine on the Eon is not at all refined. It gets considerably boomy in the top end, and even at idle, you can feel a lot of vibrations on the gear lever, steering wheel, and seats.

Typical of most Hyundai cars, Eon’s handling characteristics are very unpleasant. The steering wheel is too light at high speeds and lacks feel as well as feedback.

High-speed stability on the Eon is under par at high speed. It fails to deliver confidence to the driver.



The Hyundai Eon makes for a great overall package. Its uniqueness begins with the attractive fluidic design that sets it apart from the competition, a lush cabin with a stylish dashboard, excellent build quality, and fuel-efficient engines. The 1.0-litre engine is ideal for both cities as well as highway drives. Although not the most refined, the engine backs in a decent amount of punch for effortless commutes. Plus, fuel economy figures are very desirable on the Eon as well.

The Hyundai Eon is one of the best-looking and premium affordable hatchbacks in India. The fluid design language is blended well with multiple creases and smooth flowing lines, lending the car a unique look. Step inside its cabin, and you will realize that the Eon is as desirable on the inside as it is on the outside. Plastic quality is well above the car’s price bracket, and everything feels quite solid and upmarket. The 1.0 litre Eon is effortless to drive and retains good fuel efficiency figures as well.

With a host of variants to choose from, getting the Eon in your preferred package becomes relatively simple. The Hyundai Eon does feel like a very desirable option for middle-class buyers. It is equipped with great features like keyless entry, tilt steering wheel adjustment, and a touchscreen system. Engine options on the Eon include a 0.8 litre and a 1.0-litre petrol engine. The 1.0-litre Kappa petrol engine features a variable valve timing train and is easily the superior engine of the two.

If you are looking for a small, affordable hatchback that doesn’t compromise on design, cabin quality, and features, then the Hyundai Eon becomes a highly tempting option for you. The Eon’s light controls and beginner-friendly powertrains make it appropriate even for first-time car buyers.
