Maruti in collaboration with Suzuki has always made great cars, and recently the company launched the latest 5 seater and 7 seater car. The car is named Maruti Suzuki Eeco. Eeco has been released as both 5 and 7 seater car. When it comes to Indian cars, Maruti Suzuki has made sure that all the cars manufactured meets the budget of an average Indian, who desires to make most out of every buck spent. True is the case with the Maruti Suzuki Eeco. This Maruti Eeco is worth every buck that you would spend.
When it was the case of Multi Purpose Vehicle in India, there weren’t many companies that were making very affordable cars. Many assumed that MPVs and SUVs are meant for rich class and cannot be afforded by the middle class. But by the release of an affordable MPV, Maruti Suzuki has created a new market in the affordable MPV sector.
7 Seater car Maruti Suzuki Eeco was unveiled in the New Delhi Auto Expo 2010. During the very occasion the company also unveiled the Maruti Eeco Charge, which happens to be the electric version of the car and can run at a speed of 100 kmph and can cover around 100 km in one charge.
Performance And Engine of This Maruti Eeco
These 7 seater cars feature a 1199 cc petrol engine which is capable of delivering a maximum of 73 bhp at around 6000 rpm rotation, and can deliver a torque of maximum 101 Nm at 3000 rpm. The car has a 5 speed manual shifting gear box. What is noteworthy about the car is its mileage. The car is able to give a 15.1 km per liter and it has been tested by ARAI. The gear shift is quite smooth and noiseless and this was made possible because of the Diagonal Shift Assistance technology that has been added to the gear box. This particular car is designed to meet the emission norms that will be forced from April 2011 in major cities of India.
Interiors And Design of this Suzuki 7 Seater
After the engine and performance, the thing that you would look for is the design and the interiors of the car. This 7 seater has clear headlight lamps and also the tail lights. The dashboard is definitely praiseworthy as the cluster of various meters would satisfy any hungry driver. The looks of the car is a delicate balance between beauty and stability. To say simply, the interiors of the car match very closely to the interiors of the Maruti Versa car; although many things have been changed in this car. This car has sliding doors as featured in Omni Van, and the head rest provided for the driver and companion seat provide ultimate comfort. Over all interior design is such that it gives enough space for a family part and also will serve you in a serious cargo transfer.
