Hyundai launches Eon Sports Edition at Rs 3.88 lakh
Hyundai India has launched a Sports Edition of its entry-level hatch, Eon, at Rs 3.88 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). Featuring cosmetic updates, the Sports Edition is available only with the smaller 0.8-litre engine on the Era+ and Magna+ variants. To add the ‘sporty’ edition touch to the Era+, you’ll have to shell out Rs 16,000 more, while on the Magna+, you’ll be needing Rs 10,000 extra. The Eon rivals the Maruti Suzuki Alto and the Renault Kwid.
What is interesting to see is that the Korean carmaker has refrained from using any spoiler or body graphics, which you generally expect in the so-called ‘sports’ variants. Instead, it has gone for sporty roof rails and side body moulding graphics on the exterior.
However, the biggest change is the addition of a 6.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, which gets phone link, USB, AUX and Bluetooth connectivity. The under-hood details remain unchanged. It continues to extract power from the 0.8-litre mill, which pumps out maximum power of 56PS and 77Nm of torque. Mated to a 5-speed manual transmission, the small car returns an impressive mileage of 21.1kmpl.
