Hyundai Eon User Reviews


Only looks nothing else

Lookwise the car is ok,but while going on with the features it is not so good,cannot find power steering,music system,power windows.The fuel economy is better than cheap cars.Built-in quality is poor


Good for city drive

Features are good that gives a pleasant experience for driving.Cabin is also comfortable with ample space left for legroom and headrests.Regarding the safety,there are fog lamps and remote locks.But it is not enough,still 2 airbags and rear defoggers are needed for ensuring safety


Good for small family

Very comfortable front and rear seats that are adjustable.Adjusting the front seats would leave some space for rear seats.Small yet smart features are bottle holders,magazine placers and mobile charging.However there is engine noise felt while slotting the gears between 1 and 2,that is negligible when the music system is on and windows are open.


Raises safe and helth hazards

Only possess elegant looks.Other than this,we cannot acquire anything.This mainly due to the vibration in the gear shifts that is felt even at the neutral mode.As it continues,vibration would be felt well at the hands,that would cause a serious health hazard.It is not safe for both the driver and passengers
