Competition has always been tough in the entry-level car segment, especially after manufacturers upgraded their products with 800cc to 1,000cc. Hyundai Eon first introduced a 1.0-litre Kappa engine option way back in first half of 2014 and will soon find its newest competitor, the Redigo 1.0-litre being launched in India. Read on to find out what features have these cars have got to offer.

The Datsun Redigo 1.0-litre will be available in T (O) and S trim levels while its competitor, Hyundai Eon 1.0-litre is available in Era , Magna and Magna (O) variants.

Datsun will soon be launching the Redigo 1.0-litre in India.
