Hyundai has been readying a refreshed Eon that should be launched around this year’s festive season. It maybe noted that the Eon has almost failed to leave a dent on the Alto‘s sales performance. However, there is no denying that Eon’s exterior design and its feature-rich interior has a premium touch to it.
