Hyundai has commenced dispatching the Hyundai Eon 1.0-liter variant to its dealerships. These images snapped by a Motor Trend reader show the Eon 1L inside a showroom.
The Eon 1L is identified on the outside thanks to a "1.0" badge located on the bootlid. Another image of the engine of the car shows the "1.0" identification on the plastic cover. We find no other styling changes, or badges for that matter, on the Eon 1L.
The Eon 1L borrows its three-cylinder engine from the European i10. This motor produces 65 bhp and 9.7 kgm of torque and comes matched to a 5-speed manual gearbox. While Hyundai haven't officially launched this variant, a report suggests that the Eon 1L will come only in the Magna trim with standard features such as power windows, air conditioning, power steering, engine immobilizer, keyless entry and 13-inch steel wheels.
The Eon 1L is priced at INR 3.85 lakhs (ex-Showroom, Mumbai). As compared to the Eon 1L, the regular Eon features an 814 cc three-cylinder engine producing 56 PS and 7.6 kgm of torque. While the regular Eon rivals cars like the Maruti Alto 800, the Eon 1L will go up against the Alto K10 and the newly-launched Datsun Go.
