Maruti Suzuki has updated the Eeco with mandatory safety features as standard. Now starting from a price tag of Rs 3.55 lakhs, the Eeco comes with safety features like driver airbag, ABS with EBD, reverse parking sensors, and seatbelt reminder standard across the range.
The Eeco also gets a speed alert system. However, in the Tour V trim, this feature has been replaced with speed limiter. Also part of the update is the new steering wheel akin to the one seen on the Alto. This steering wheel replacement was essential as it houses the new driver side airbag. Apart from the addition of the safety equipment, the Eeco does not get any new updates, either visually or mechanically.
The people mover continues to be offered with a five- and seven-seat seat layout apart from the cargo configuration. Powering it is the same 1.2-litre four-cylinder petrol which can also be had with a CNG option. The engine puts out 72bhp and 101Nm of torque in the standard guise and 63hp and 85Nm of torque in CNG guise. Maruti claims a fuel efficiency of 15.37kmpl with petrol and 21.94kmpl with the CNG. Maruti will now continue to sell the updated Eeco until the new crash test norms kick in.
