Hyundai Eon Facelift Preview
Hyundai Eon has been one of the popular pick in the entry-level hatchback segment in the country. In efforts to stand strong in the Indian market, the automaker will be introducing a facelift model in the country sometime soon. It is worth noting that Eon has not received any major design upgrades since its launch in the country way back in 2011, except for a new 1.0-litre engine option that was introduced in 2014.
The 2017 Hyundai Eon does not get any mechanical upgrades and will continue to be powered by existing 0.8-litre and 1.0-litre engine options that come mated to a five-speed manual transmission. However, the new model might receive a few tweaks to deliver slightly better fuel efficiency figures than its predecessors.
As for the design element, the company’s renowned fluidic sculpture 2.0-design philosophy will be seen in the new Eon facelift as well. The new model will get restyled headlamps, tweaked bumpers, new grille and revised tail-lamps. The side profile is likely to be more or less the same as the current generation with body coloured ORVM’s and will also sport newly designed wheel caps.
The new Hyundai Eon will get revised upholstery in new colour combination and improved fabric. For freshness, the new model will get a new instrument cluster. This time around, the biggest change in the new model comes in form of a touchscreen infotainment system, which is likely to be offered on the top-spec version for that competitive element in its segment.
