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.

The Hyundai Eon has been one of the successful products from the country’s largest passenger car exporter. The addition of the Sports package is likely to attract young buyers. However, we would have liked to see this edition in the bigger 1.0-litre engine option as well, as what’s sporty without more power, isn’t it? That said, that would have spiked the prices too.
