Hyundai has triggered its gunfire at the bestselling car of the nation, Maruti Alto. The Alto k10 series manages to make a whopping sale of 20000 which is almost double the monthly sale of Eon. While Alto comes with two engine variants, 1l and 800cc, the Hyundai is just accessible in the 800cc petrol motor. In order to attract the K10 and Alto buyers, Hyundai has planned to release the 1l petrol model into the Eons engine inlet.
Hyundai Eon 2014 will borrow the 1l engine from the Hyundai Santro Xing. With a little less than two years since its launch, Hyundai right now manages to sell just 8000 numbers of Eon per month. The company is making efforts to seriously contemplate on the improvisation of the looks and efficacy of the car.
Hyundai is focussing to release the new Eon model to woo the car buyers of India. There is a great possibility that new face-lifted version of Eon will be released by the end of present year or at the Auto Expo 2014. The renovated variant of Hyundai was seen testing on the roads of the nation with the i10 series.
It appears that Hyundai is deeply interested in making amendments to the hood, headlamps, tail lamp and bumper of the car to give it a complete improvised look, so it becomes more of an eye candy for its customers. It has been said that the car will not bring any innovation in the 814 cc petrol engine. At present, the car is being manufactured at the Chennai facility of the brand. Enormous enhancements have been made to the car to revive its sale and help it stand against Maruti Suzuki Alto 800.
There is a great chance that the enhanced Hyundai Eon will be released with a new boot lid, well designed bumpers and new headlamps. Other expected updates to the car include an upholstery amendment and some extra inputs in the cabin.
At present Hyundai hasn’t planned for any diesel engine in its Eon series even when it has released a 1.1l 3-cylinder turbo diesel motor on its newest i10 Grand series. The major cause of not releasing a diesel engine on the Eon is that the diesel engine will push the cost of the car to a little higher level. This definitely won’t make sense to the car purchaser of this section. Small car users barely use the car covering 600km/ month, thus, a diesel engine would not make any significant change for these buyers.
The Chennai plant of Hyundai is manufacturing Eon. Other than the domestic consumption, the car will also be exported to the Vietnam and Philippines market. The Korean company is planning to answer its competitors with the renovated Eon model.
The face-lifted version Hyundai Eon 2014 will surely raise the sales of the Eon and enhance the share of the car maker in the Indian Automotive market. While the Hyundai fanatics wait patiently for the release of the car, Hyundai itself is emphasizing on the quick launch of the car.
