Hyundai India is all set to launch the Eon with 1.0-litre engine. The current car comes with an 800cc engine and the new Eon with this bigger engine will understandably be priced higher. We expect it to cost around Rs 3.90 lakhs (ex-showroom, Mumbai). As seen in the images, the new Eon doesn't boast any cosmetic change and can be recognized only with 1.0 badge at rear. The new power train option is available only on the mid-variant Magna that comes with comfort features like AC, power steering, front power windows, immobilizer and keyless entry.

Although, the company has not shared technical specs of the new engine but, apparently, it is the same engine that powers the European-spec i10. The new three pot unit generates power of 65bhp and 9.7kgm of torque.

Hyundai dealers in the NCR region haven't confirmed prices and were clueless about this new variant.

The Korean automaker has made this smart move to the Eon range to counter the competition from the Maruti Suzuki Alto K10 and recently introduced Datsun GO. However, the Eon stands out with most expensive car tag among its competition but increased performance of the Eon will hopefully grab the attention of prospective buyers in the market.
