A new generation model of the Maruti Suzuki Eeco van, which was first launched in 2010, is to be launched this year. However, no official announcement has been made on this as of now. But a recent media report has claimed that the all-new Eeco could be launched around August or September 2022. The look and style of this van could be slightly better. Also, it is likely to get some new features including power steering.
The Maruti Eeco was earlier updated in January 2020 with a new BS-VI engine. However, the company is now working on a new update. However, before the new 2023 Eeco officially debuted, it has been leaked on the internet. This has revealed the changes in the exterior look and design of the new Eeco.
How is the look and design?
According to the leaked images of the 2023 Maruti Eeco, it will get several cosmetic upgrades. However, there will be no change in its overall profile. But it will get new headlamps as well as taillamps. Some changes are also seen in the lighting. Apart from this, the car will also get new body panels along with newly remastered bumpers on both the sides. All these changes will give a new appeal to the Eeco. The car may also get new color options whose details will be revealed soon.
Talking about the cabin of the car, it will also get new changes like new interior colors and new upholstery. However, it will continue to be offered in 5-seater and 7-seat layouts as before.
Engine and mileage.
The model is expected to continue to get the same 1.2-litre K-Series Dual Jet Dual VVT petrol engine as before. This powertrain has also been used in other Maruti cars like Wagon R, Swift and Baleno. In its latest BS-VI avatar, this engine generates 89 bhp power and 113 Nm torque. A 5-speed transmission is available with this engine. The Eco van promises a mileage of 16.11 kmpl and its CNG variant promises 21.8 kmpl.
Meanwhile, Maruti Suzuki has urged the central government to reconsider its proposal to make the use of 6 airbags mandatory in all cars. This proposal of the government is yet to be converted into a rule. It aims to enhance the safety of passengers on Indian roads.
