Keeping the upcoming safety regulations in view, Maruti Suzuki India Limited has just launched the updated version of its Eeco in India. The new safety regulations will apply post 1 April 2019 and seeing the upcoming deadline Maruti decided to update its multi-purpose vehicle in India.  The new update brings ABS, driver-side airbag, seatbelt reminder, speed alert, reverse parking assist, etc.

The new Eeco was bound to get these updates as the deadline for implementing the new rules was fast approaching, the new updated models had been spied at the dealership stockyards in the past, and they are expected to go on sale very soon. The prices of the updated models have also not been released as of now. However, given the amount of safety it added to variants of the MPV, the prices are sure to go up in the range of Rs. 4,000- 23,000 depending on the variant. As far as the variants are concerned, the Maruti Eeco comes on 5-seater and 8-seater variants.

Maruti Eeco is offered by the company in petrol, CNG, and petrol-CNG options, and is a strong seller in the segment. The MPV comes equipped with a 1.2L, 4-cylinder, petrol engine rated to deliver 73 Bhp and 101 Nm and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. Strong on mileage and reliability, Eeco boasts of strong sales in the segment along with the Maruti Omni, which was discontinued in India a few months ago.

A cult car and a pop culture icon in India, Omni will not be built after the 1st of April, Maruti Suzuki took the decision to scrap the model because it was too expensive to upgrade it as per the upcoming safety and emission norms. Hence, one of India’s most iconic vans will soon go out of market. However, with the updated Eeco the brand will not leave the sub-5 lakh MPV market altogether.

As Eeco will replace the legendary Omni, we can expect to see the Cargo version of Eeco gain more prominence among the customers. It is also likely that India’s largest carmaker Maruti Suzuki will soon add an LPG-Petrol option to the Eeco line-up, just like the one offered with the Omni. The reason behind this move would be that CNG as a fuel is not readily available in many parts the country, whereas LPG is available throughout the nation. Hence, in order to provide the customers with a chapter and cleaner mode of fuel, Maruti could soon launch the LPG-Petrol version of their Eeco.
