The Hyundai Eon is a very popular car in India, but in order to increase its appeal, the Korean carmaker has released a new version. The new model is powered by a 1.0-liter engine and will now go by its new name, the Eon Magna 1.0. However, in order for it to please the Indian market, it needs to deliver and compete with the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio, with its price being one of the major factors.
The new Hyundai Eon Magna 1.0 does have several postives going for it, such as being very reliable, the design being better than its completion, its comfort levels higher than you would imagine for a car of its size, and finally fuel-efficiency. Being able to tick all these boxes is a huge plus for the new Eon, so what of its price compared to that of the Maruti Suzuki Celerio.
With price being a major factor with this segment, the Korean carmaker needs to get it right and the Hyundai Eon Magna 1.0 price in India of Rs 3,83,130 ex-showroom is considered a good price. This is very similar to the Maruti Suzuki Celerio price in India of Rs 3.76, which is why these two models will be very close in terms of popularity.
However, the new Eon will not only be competing with the Celerio in India, as it also has to fend off the Datsun Go. Both vehicles are made specifically for the Indian market and a review video below shows you just how the two compare to each other.
We thought we would throw in another Hyundai Eon 1.0-Litre video review in for good measure, but this time looking at its key features and how it is expected to do in the Indian market.
