Hyundai EON

It' cheaper than the i10, less powerful than the i10, comes with most of the goodies of the i10 and looks good and appealing in design and build. So this means, more cars on road, more traffic congestion and the possibility of  all middle class families to own a descent looking car. And yes, its from Hyundai and people can bank on it based on its past historical success with Santro and its good customer service.

Hyundai EON - Targeted release Oct 2011

Another hatchback from Hyundai is targeted this month. Its the EON. Its sports  814 cc three cylinder engine, and is expected to give a mileage of 21.1 km / litre.

So what is different in this car?? Maybe the design. It looks a step ahead of most of the other hatchbacks we have out there in its segment. I am comparing it to the A-Star, Beat, Nano and the Chevrolet Spark. I have feeling Hyundai is trying to place this car below the i10. So it would be priced less.

Mahindra XUV 500

Got to see this monster at MG Road. It sported this military color and at the first glance it seemed to be an imported car. But a closer look and it had Mahindra's logo. What???

I have not seen any ad for this on TV or in the papers. Whats going on? Well, it does not matter. Mahindra claims it to be its first global SUV. So here is the website. http://www.mahindraxuv500.com/

It does look good in the rear, maybe a little cramped. The seating at the rear end of the vehicle is only for two people. That's a little disappointing. Nothing so great about the interiors. We have seen it all. I like the side profile. It looks different and mean and so is the front profile. The dashboard looks unique. It looks like Mahindra has really done its homework pretty good here. Its got AWD and a bunch of other good stuff. Have a look. You might be impressed.
