Hyundai Eon Exteriors Vs Chevrolet Spark Exteriors:

Hyundai Eon is based on the fluidic sculpture design of Hyundai and contains beautiful and aerodynamic curves with a very upmarket exterior styling, fit, finish and built quality. In terms of dimensions, its same in length, slightly less in height and wider when compared to Chevrolet Spark. However, Eon has a longer wheelbase.

Hyundai Eon Interiors Vs Chevrolet Spark Interiors:

In terms of Interiors, Eon feels very premium considering the price segment which it falls in. The quality of plastics, fabrics, build quality of the instrument panel, dashboard console etc. all feel good. In terms of space, the front seats ate quiet spacious with intelligent packaging of the car. The leg room at the rear seats is also very good, but the shoulder room seems slight cramped for three healthy adults, so is the case with Spark as well with respect to the rear space.

Spark also has good quality of interiors, fabric and comfortable seating on the front seats. However, because of low width, the rear seat does not feel comfortable for 3 passengers. The design of the interiors seems slightly plain if compared with the Eon. So in terms on Interiors, my vote goes to Eon.

The Spark has a higher displacement 4 cylinder engine which delivers higher power and torque but is slightly low on fuel economy. Eon delivers about 17% better fuel economy over Spark as per the ARAI numbers, which may be a lesser difference in the rear driving situations. This is a choice between power and fuel economy, so I leave this decision to you which is more important to you.

Handling and Performance:

Hyundai Eon is good on handling and ride comfort if we compare it with the small car from this price bracket. The Spark is also a good car in terms of ride comfort and handling. Both handle well and score average on this front, so we call it a tie.

Opinion - Hyundai Eon Petrol Vs Chevrolet Spark Petrol Engine:

Hyundai Eon is a better choice overall across the variants and starts at a much lower price. The Spark does offer a better engine and impressive handling, but looks dated and too simple in terms of features and style compared to Eon. Also Eon is more value for money considering the features and price.
