Hyundai EON: Ready to Turn You On

 

There are small cars that have all the basics—and they just pass you by without you even taking a single look.  Yes, they may have what it takes to take you from place to place, but let’s face it; when it comes to small, everyday-drive cars, style is just secondary. 

 

Well, here’s a small car that could—turn you on, that is, in almost every way possible.  It’s got the looks, the drive, and the personality to go with your kind of driving lifestyle—meant not to be ignored, even with its miniscule frame.  From Hyundai, here’s a car that’s set to go a long, long, long way.  Meet the EON!

 

DrivEON

As the newest 5-door hatchback of Hyundai in the sub-compact car category, the EON is a looker with its European-inspired design that evokes a hip and youthful vibe.  Up front, the EON immediately catches your attention with its distinct hexagonal grille, complimented by clear, swept back headlamps.  Flowing character lines and a gently sloping profile add a sportier elegance to its trendy build.  It’s got an aerodynamic profile that has achieved a 0.35 coefficient of drag; simply put, it just goes to show that the EON can effortlessly cut through the wind, requiring minimum driving effort, and we all know what this translates to—better fuel consumption.  The rear likewise makes a fine impression with stylish half-moon shaped tail lights and rear spoiler with High Mount Stop Lamp (HMSL).

 

Under the hood, an interestingly compact yet powerful engine adds even more oomph to this cool hatchback.  The EON has an Epsilon 0.8-liter MPI engine that churns maximum power of 56 ps at 5,500 rpm and maximum torque of 7.6 kg-m at 4,000 rpm, fit for everyday driving around the metro.  Besides giving ample boost of power, the EON is also remarkable in fuel economy, as it delivers best-in-class fuel-efficiency of 26.3 km/L during long drive based on a fuel economy test conducted by Hyundai Motor Company (HMC), thanks to its lightweight engine design and smooth engine operation. 

 

The EON’s Epsilon engine incorporates several significant weight-saving technologies such as a plastic inlet manifold and a plastic head cover which are made of highly durable engineering plastics designed to withstand hot temperatures.  The engine’s piston and piston rings are treated with special low friction coatings, which help reduce internal losses due to friction, thereby enhancing fuel efficiency.  But don’t think that the EON is all just saving fuel; it’s a thrill to drive the EON, with its performance-boosting intake port that has been optimized to deliver better combustion.

 

Mated to a 5-speed Manual Transmission, the EON’s Epsilon engine delivers even better fuel-saving performance with smoother gearshift control.

 

MovEON

Moving around with the EON is a breeze with Motor-Driven Power Steering (MDPS), which uses an electric motor to reduce steering complexity and weight, while maintaining excellent steering response and helping improve the car’s fuel economy. 

The ride is likewise stable with the EON, as it is fitted with front MacPherson strut-type suspension mated to a new l-shaped front sub-frame that’s compact in design to help reduce weight and provide an improved caster angle for more precise handling and comfortable ride.  Body roll is also significantly reduced by mounting the stabilizer directly on the strut. 

 

With a minimum turning radius of 4.55 m, maneuvering around tight spaces is not an issue with the EON, while 1386 mm / 1368 mm wheel treads for the front and rear, respectively, give it a good grip on the road.

 

GroovEON

Inside the EON, the welcoming ambience and interior space allows you to groove on to your desired driving mood.  At the front, the driver seat cushion and side-bolsters feature multi-density foam for comfort and maximum support where it’s needed most. Turn on the engine and welcoming lights from the instrument panel come to life, engaging you to take the EON for a spin.  For an even comfier driving feel, the steering wheel can be tilted to your desired position.

   

It may be a sub-compact, but the EON is generous enough in space for your needs.  There are plenty of cubby holes and other compartments like dashboard storage, an open storage tray at the center fascia, cup holders, floor console, door map pockets, and seatback pocket (front passenger side) for handy items and other gadgets.  

 

With up to 215 liters in capacity, you can throw in your luggage snugly at the back; and if that’s still not enough, the EON’s rear seats can be folded for irregularly shaped items, or bigger outdoor gear that you might want to bring along.

 

Enjoy the journey with the EON even more with its integrated audio system.  Choose the way you play your driving music—via CD, MP3, or go for traditional AM/FM radio.  You may also plug in the music you like by hooking up your portable music player in the USB slot or Auxiliary input for a more customized listening pleasure.

 

The EON also throws in other useful conveniences like power windows and keyless entry.  Efficient cooling comes from its manual-type airconditioning system with 4-speed fan blower with front heater core.     

 

LivEON

On the side of safety, the EON is engineered to let you enjoy your driving lifestyle responsibly.  Its body structure has reinforced floor panel, optimized radiator support panel design and door side impact beams, which strengthen the car’s build to counter force in the event of an impact.

 

Aside from being the nifty, spirited car that it is, the EON is also reliable when it comes to stopping power.  That’s why it’s fitted with front disc brakes to give the tires that firm hold, especially when emergency situations call for it.

Clear, triangular-shaped foglamps help provide better visibility at night, while signal lamps like side repeaters and High Mount Stop Lamp (HMSL) at the rear spoiler promptly alert motorists of your driving intentions.

Inside the EON are supplementary safety features like driver side airbag, 3-point ELR seatbelts at the front seats and 3-point ELR seatbelts at the rear seats with 2-point static seatbelt at the center, child safety rear door lock, and covering shelf trim that keeps your valuables from view. 

            

Are you ready to switch on to something new?  Then, don’t just settle for the basics; have fun driving and look good while you’re at it—with the EON, it’s possible!  So Drive On, Move On, Groove On, Live On, with Hyundai EON!

Maharajah Red                       Electrix Red

Pristine Blue                            Clean Blue

Yellow                                     Mushroom
