Shootout – Hyundai Eon vs Maruti 800

Maruti Alto 800 Price – lakhs, Rs. Hyundai Eon Price – Rs. lakhs

Hyundai Eon’s into the A-segment has made Suzuki go back to the drawing and how!

Entry level are the most important in India, as account for a major chunk of Maruti Suzuki has been the entry level segment quite a while now, absolutely no competition to shake Since the very launch of the 800 in the and the Alto in the 2000s, Maruti has remained the undisputed king of the The Alto has put forth record month after month to be challenged by Hyundai’s game Eon in 2010.

India’ largest car has now upped the game with the Maruti Alto 800 . which is the facelift of the car since its very 12 years ago. But does the 800 manage to fend of the brilliantly Hyundai Eon in India?

Exteriors – The Maruti Alto was refreshed in its Alto 800 avatar. the old Alto looked dated, it was cute, which unfortunately the 800 is not. The Alto 800 instead mixed feelings.

While the car maker has lifted quite a few elements from other the overall output seems far positive. The Alto 800 looks and very awkward from angles (especially the rear). The ground clearance, small and lack of lines make the 800 look bland. The Hyundai Eon on the hand is a stunner from angle you view it.

This car has the right dimensions and lines, the fluidic sculpture futher the styling of this car. The Eon extremely stylish and modern, the Alto 800 look extremely in comparison.

Interiors – While the Eon and Alto 800 are entry level buyers expect these to offer decent interior for four passengers. The Alto has known for being extremely for tall passengers and rear The Alto 800 has somewhat resolved the of space to a certain extent.

In comparison, the interior space is similar with both The Alto’s rear seats poor under thigh and support .The new dashboard look good and quality has leaps and bounds too. once you get inside the Eon, the 800′s interiors take a seat.

Hyundai has done a job with the interiors of the Eon. The design and layout are very executed, making passengers they are in a more expensive car they actually are. The Eon has slightly more space the Alto 800 and that enables a passenger to squeeze in.

The instrument of the Eon with green bars for and fuel meter look good, while the dual beige interiors give the an airy feeling. The top end variant of the Eon gets integrated audio with USB and AUX ports. The storage in the Hyundai Eon are more than the 800 too and so it the boot which at 215-litres, the Alto 800′s 177-litres

Overall, the Hyundai Eon is ages in the interiors over the Alto offering more practicality.

– Both these cars are by 800cc, 3-cylinder petrol The Hyundai Eon produces 55 BHP of power at RPM and 75 Nm of torque at 4000 RPM from its 814 cc The Alto 800 uses an upgraded F8D which produces 47.5 BHP of at 6000 RPM and 69 Nm of torque at 3500 RPM its 796 cc engine.

On paper, the Hyundai is ahead on power, but out on the road, the 800 is quicker and more refined. The 800 is also more frugal of the returning marginally more

Being lighter of the two, the 800 feels quite peppy and for a small capacity motor. The Eon has decent pep but the Alto 800 is simply Both cars are extremely in the city and tend to run out of breath out on the Maruti Suzuki has done a job with the upgraded 3-pot in the Alto 800, which does feel jerky at low isn’t high on vibrations. The Eon tend to vibrate a bit, an flaw of 3-cylinder engines.

The vibes can be felt through the knob at low speeds. Both have 5-speed manual with light clutch and smooth shifting mechanism.

Dynamics – Both cars the basic suspension system. The 800 runs on 145/80/12 high tyres, while the Eon runs on two set of tyres, depending on the variant. The variants get 145/80/12 tyres the higher variants get 155/70/13 Both the Eon and Alto 800 offer ride quality, but the Korean get unsettled on very bad roads. The 800 has better handling too and the light does help in making it the agile vehicle of the two.

High speed stability is in the Eon though and so are the brakes which are surefooted.

Verdict – Both have come out strongly in areas. While the Hyundai Eon is superior in terms of exterior and styling and quality, the Alto 800 back strongly by offering better driving dynamics and The Hyundai Eon range starts at Rs. lakhs for the base D-Lite and goes all the way up to Rs.

4.48 lakhs for the Sportz variant. The Alto 800 is cheaper, with a starting of Rs. 2.93 lakhs for the base Std going up to to Rs.

4.09 lakhs for the LXi CNG variant.

Variant to variant, is marginal price difference both these cars, the Eon being slightly more of the two. However the Alto 800 absolutely stripped and doesn’t have a left side or central locking. Hyundai has the Eon with many bells and unseen in an entry level which makes the higher well worth it.

While the Alto 800 is a very leap over the old Alto, not enough to unsettle the Hyundai Eon being top car in this segment. The Eon is a more rounded package makes it the winner in this

The Hyundai Eon proves that cars don’t have to cheap, which makes it a rounded and appealing package the Maruti Alto 800.
