The Eon for Philippines is manufactured in India equipped with the same 0.8-liter Epsilon motor that puts out 55hp and 75Nm of torque. Mated to a five-speed manual transmission, it delivers a mileage of 26.3 kpl in the economy test conducted in Philippines.

The Eon is Hyundai’s Etios – it helps explore lower segments where people are buying cars for the first time or in a price bracket where used cars sit. Though the Eon is the starting model it has to be mentioned that it does not have a feature deficit. Driver side airbag, power windows, keyless entry and an USB slot are a few to note.

The Eon is sold in two variants for Philippines. The entry-level model is sold at P438,000 (5.21 lakhs) while the range-topping model fitted with the body-colored bumpers is priced at P498,000 (5.92 lakhs).
