The Indian automotive landscape has experienced a significant upheaval with the introduction of Maruti Suzuki’s latest venture into the multi-seater segment. The Maruti Eeco, a seven-seater vehicle, has been making waves for its affordability and robust features, especially given its competitive pricing of just 5 lakh rupees. This model stands out in the Indian market, which has seen an upsurge in the sales of four-wheeled vehicles, with car manufacturers increasingly launching new and improved models.

The Eeco comes packed with an array of modern amenities that cater to the contemporary driver’s needs. Notable among its features are a digital instrument cluster, a redesigned steering wheel, cabin air filtration in the AC variant, and AC rotary controls to enhance user comfort and convenience. Safety has not been compromised, with the inclusion of engine immobilizers, dual airbags on the front seat, anti-lock braking systems with EBD, child locks on doors and windows, hazard switches, and reverse parking sensors.

Under the hood, the Maruti Suzuki Eeco boasts a 1.2-liter Dual Jet petrol engine capable of delivering a maximum power of 80.76 PS along with a peak torque of 104.4 Nm. When equipped with a CNG kit, the engine’s output slightly adjusts to a power of 71.65 PS and a torque of 95 Nm, maintaining efficiency without compromising performance.
