Hyundai debuts cheapest car, but Eon's only for India

Hyundai has introduced in New Delhi, India, the Eon, the smallest car the South Korean manufacturer has ever made. It hopes the three-cylinder, four-door, five-seat hatchback will strongly challenge Maruti Suzuki, the country's best-selling carmaker.

The Eon, priced at 2.7 lakh (approximately $5,500) is a few inches shorter than Hyundai's i10, Hyundia's previous smallest car made in India. The Eon is same length as the Maruti Alto, the top-selling car in India, and it's slightly longer than the Tata Motor.Hyundai debuts cheapest car, but Eon's only for India 1

The Eon will be available in six trims — D-Lite, D-Lite (O), Era, Magna, Eon D-Lite Magna (O) and Eon Sportz. All models will include air-conditioning, adjustable power steering, power windows, multi trip meter, and integrated front seat headrests.

Although Hyundai may eventually sell the Eon in South America and in some European countries for now it wil only be available in India.
