South Korean automaker Hyundai has silently launched the powerful version of the Eon hatchback in the Indian car market. The Eon is now available with a 1.0-litre petrol engine and is only available on the Magna trim. While the Eon 1.0-litre in non-metallic colour is priced at Rs. 3.83 lakh, the metallic shade model costs Rs. 3.86 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). However, this variant misses out on features such as music system, tilt adjustable steering and adjustable ORVMs that are available in the regular Magna variant.
