Hyundai launches the Eon with a 1.0-litre engine

The good news is Hyundai has introduced a 1.0-litre engine in the little Eon hatchback. The not so good news is that the engine will be available only on the Magna+ variant of the car. The Eon Magna+ is priced at Rs.3,83,130 (ex-showroom, New Delhi).

The 1.0-litre Kappa petrol engine is a three-cylinder unit and is equipped with Hyundai’s Dual VTVT technology and is Euro 5 complaint. The engine produces 68bhp @ 6200rpm and 96Nm @ 3500rpm. Power is transmitted to the front wheels via a 5-speed manual gearbox. The engine is rated by ARAI at 20.3 km/l.

The 1.0-litre engine is an all-aluminium construction and this has helped Hyundai achieve an improved fuel economy. Hyundai has also used a low friction timing chain to minimize the NVH (Noise, Vibration and Harshness) levels. Hyundai has also equipped the engine with piston cooling jets which ensure optimum temperature of the piston for efficient engine working.

Commenting on the introduction of new engine variant of Eon, B S Seo, Managing Director and CEO, HMIL said, “Hyundai Eon has been a trendsetter of style, performance, design and finesse in its segment and has received good acceptability and appreciation from its customers. Hyundai consistently innovates to meet and exceed the demands of the customer and the 1.0 Litre Kappa engine now offered in Eon is an extension of our modern-premium brand philosophy and will delight our customers with unparalleled driving experience and further consolidate Hyundai’s position in the domestic market.”

The Eon 1.0 has the Maruti-Suzuki Alto K10 and the Datsun GO for competition.
