Basis dimensions Eon offers maximum legroom (More Length and Wheelbase) and more shoulder room (More width), whilst New Spark offers more headroom (Height). In terms of space, we would go with EON followed by Spark and then the New Alto 800. I other words comfort of space would be more in Eon DLite + vs New Spark and new Alto 800

Eon Dlite+ offers AC and Power steering whereas both New Spark and New Alto 800 offer front door power windows. Eon loses out on convenience to both New Spark and New Alto 800.

Nothing much separates Eon Dlite+, New Spark and New Alto 800, in terms of safety features. All these cars comes with impact beams on the door, collapsible steering, Seatbelts and headrests. New Alto 800 and Eon DLite+ comes with Immobilser. New Alto 800 also come with Anti-theft alarm and roof top crumple zone. However, we believe on safety front Eon Dlite+, New Spark and New Alto 800 are evenly matched.

Style is Eon Dlite+ territory, the car with its fluidic design has really set the benchmark for styling, whilst New Spark has really improved in terms of styling, we still believe that its still has some distance to go, unfortunately in presence of these cars, Alto 800 does not look so good.

(One caveat – styling is subjective and preference might vary as some consumers do feel that EON is kind of over the top in terms of styling). We have for your reference, presented the front and rear of these cars for your own judgement.

Our final choice in order of our preference would be Hyundai EON DLite+, Chevrolet New Spark LS and then Maruti New Alto 800.
