Will Hyundai Eon rule the market share occupied by Maruti Alto? Can I sell i10 to buy Eon?

Updated on October 16, 2011

Yes, Hyundai EON will rule over the market share that was occupied by Alto till now. It is going to be the best car in that range. With the beginning of a new era of Eon, Alto K10 is definitely going to have a cut down on its sales at least half or something, if not full. The temptation of buying such a fuel efficient car with excellent interiors, exteriors, and build quality, loaded with technology is so profound in car lovers that they are planning to sell their existing cars bought in same range and buy Eon. With fuel prices shooting up like a rocket, there are thousands of people who want to buy highly fuel efficient cars such as Eon. Moreover, the launch of Hyundai Eon LPG variant will be a massive hit among Indians due to its highly economical nature.

One of my friends has got so tempted after taking a test drive of Eon that he is looking ahead selling off his Hyundai i10 1.1 iRDE and buy Hyundai Eon which he thinks is all set to rule the petrol hatches in India after Alto. Just like several other people living in Delhi, he always wanted a very compact car that can save the trouble with finding the parking space. Of course, most Delhi’s colonies’ streets are not wide enough to park sedans but people who are considering buying Eon selling their not so old i10 can have a simple suggestion from my side. “Friends, Hyundai i10 is much more powerful than Hyundai Eon anytime, as Eon is having an engine of 814cc with maximum power of 55 BHP, and it is still less than that of i10 and also i10 is of a different segment.” People who are going for a new car with a budget of around 3 lakhs or something can opt for Hyundai Eon. Eon is the younger cousin of i10.

Here is a more specific comparison of Hyundai i10 1.1L iRDE vs Hyundai Eon:

Hyundai i10 1.1L iRDE is more powerful than EON by 10 BHP. EON is a very small compact car. Hyundai i10 is bigger and better. The EON has 814cc 3 Cylinder Engine with 55 BHP output and 75 Nm of torque which is 35 Nm less than the i10 1.1L iRDE, so it is better to stay with i10 only if you have it. If you are thinking for a small car in a budget of 4 lakhs INR, Hyundai i10 is the best. Do not go anything below for this segment. You will regret your decision in future and that is for sure because EON is very small comparing it with the i10. Eon has been launched for people who are looking to buy a car in 3 lakhs budget. Eon is pure competitor of ALTO and Chevy Spark. This is the reason why the above statement is true that Hyundai EON will rule over the market share occupied by Alto.

      Fuel economy is king Rajinder and will become more and more important as time goes by. Formula one is now using re generative braking and adjustable air flow through the spoilers. Watch this space.
