MARUTI SUZUKI Eeco- A five door, C-segment car
On January 7, 2010 country’s number one automobile company Maruti Suzuki launched a spacious –family car –Maruti Suzuki Eeco. It is an updated version of Maruti Suzuki Versa. The car is becoming popular because of its environment friendly feature. The car Eeco id ELV (end of life for vehicles) compliant –that means it uses lead, cadmium, mercury and chromium within permissible limit. Its environment friendly engine makes the Eeco –India’s first Green car in its segment.
In its newer version Maruti has given a very stylish and trendy look with a slight re-design. The car has given a slightly lower roofline and because of it, it looks shorter. Moreover, car is having a spacious and flat loading bay, clear lens headlamps. The dual tone interior gives attractive looks. The car is available in three versions.
- 5 seater standard-2.59, 000/Indian rupees
- 5 seater A.C.-2,89,000/Indian rupees
- 7 seater standard-2, 71,000/Indian rupees
Maruti Suzuki Eeco gets a new 1.2 L engine .Compared to Maruti Suzuki Versa the engine of Eeco is 100 cc smaller .The engine develops 73bhp @ 6000 rpm-104 nm of torque at 3000 rpm .Hopefully, Eeco will get the option of CNG fuel in future.
Maruti Suzuki has done best job by launching Eeco just not because of its environment friendly feature but also it is an improved version of Maruti Versa and Maruti Omni. The car is highly fuel efficient and offers great mileage of 15.1 km/litre. A Duo Eeco would make it environment friendly even better by offering 7 seater models. Thus, we can say that the car is available in modern and trendy look with a reasonable price tag. Highly recommended as a value for money car.
