Compare Chevrolet Spark and Hyundai Eon

Key Difference: Chevrolet Spark and Hyundai Eon are two efficiently designed and competitively priced automobiles belonging to the hatchback car family. They are different from one another by their make, individual features, performance potency and their manufacturers.

The Chevrolet Spark can be understood as the gradient of Daewoo Matiz, which was produced by Daewoo Motors until its take over by General Motors, the American car maker. The take over took place in the year 2002, since when General Motors has been producing and selling the Daewoo Matiz under its own brand name 'Chevrolet Spark'. The car has been sold through its three generations, the last of which was launched in the year 2010. Comprising of the typical five door hatchback style, the Spark is sold across the world by different names such as the Matiz Creative in South Korea, Chevrolet Beat in India, Holden Barina Spark in Australia, etc. The car is not exactly loaded with features, but does enough to serve a family of four adequately. Sporting a funky and fluidic design, the spark packs in a powerful engine with an impressive displacement capacity of 995 cc. Largely available as a petrol run vehicle, the Chevrolet Spark has also been presented in its diesel variant in some select countries of the world. With a healthy fuel tank capacity of 38 liters, the Spark is almost the perfect hatchback for a pleasant weekend outing. However, the car surprisingly falls short in the fuel economy department, with a meager mileage capacity of 21 kmpl. Nevertheless, the Chevrolet Spark still manages to score big on style, and is reasonably potent in performance.

The Hyundai Eon is a smartly designed hatchback variant, which is specifically targeted at the transportation needs of an upper middle class, or a middle class family. Manufactured in collaboration with the South Korean Hyundai research and development center, the Hyundai Eon has its production base in Chennai, India. The car was launched on 1 October 2011 in India, March 2012 in the Philippines, and June 2012 in Vietnam. The car is exported to a few other Southeast Asian countries as well, from its Chennai plant itself. Packing in a decent amount of standard features such as an 814 cc engine, 21.1 kmpl mileage capacity and a five-gear manual transmission system, the Eon is competitively priced in many car markets around the world. Apart from its jazzy presentation, the Hyundai Eon also delivers some top notch car aspects such as power steering, remote controlled central locking system, provision of airbags, power windows, and a fully fabric seat upholstery. However, a significant downside for Hyundai with this car is that the mentioned features do not make the cut in its basic models. Regardless of this one shortcoming, it can be said that the Hyundai Eon is indeed among a consumer’s best bet, especially in the hatchback section.
