March 20, 2013:Maruti Suzuki India in keeping with the current market trend has released a limited edition Eeco dubbed as Maruti Eeco Smiles at a starting price of Rs. 3.32 lakh (Ex-showroom, Mumbai) . This limited edition model does not feature mechanical changes but boasts of plenty cosmetic ones. The new Eeco Smiles comes with wheel covers, mud flaps and 'Smiles' stickers on the side profiles and the rear. Inside the cabin it now sports a new double DIN music system with USB, new doormats and dual tone seat covers. All these extra features have added Rs. 9,490 to the price of the car. The car houses a 1.2-litre petrol engine that generates a maximum power output of 73bhp along with 101Nm of peak torque, while returning an impressive mileage of around 15kmpl. The vehicle is also available with the CNG kit option, which promises to return a mileage of 20km/kg.
Look and Style: Not Really the selling points. Looks quite basic and very vanlike design.
Comfort: Very Stiff Suspension as you would expect in a high center of gravity van such as this once, hence the ride is not very smooth.
Pickup: A very peppy engine. The 1.2-L engine lets you have an absolute blast! You will accelerate to 80 as fast you would in a Suzuki Celerio (I own both).
Mileage: 20km/kg (CNG) and 15km/l (Petrol).
Best Features: It's not the fastest car you can buy on the marke read more 5
Look and Style: Looks are awesome and I would like to rate the car as 8/10, Good. Comfort: Here, I feel a bit reserved to give the car just 6 out of 10, as it needs some more comfortability at the Rear Seat. Pickup: Pick is good, and I would rate 8/10 here. Mileage: 13 KM/L. Best Features: Good pick up 37
I can't understand why good automobile company like Maruti is producing cars like the Eeco. Even in advanced development happening in the automobile industry, the Eeco lacks basic technologies. If you like to drive a vintage car, you can go in for the Eeco. The car lacks the basic comfort for any car like power steering and A/C.
I don't understand who is the brilliant person, who gave the design for that car. It is good in comfort when going in a family of more than 5. If you choose a c read more 8
Move people affordably and efficiently - that’s the ethos of the Maruti Eeco. This MPV has been designed to be a workhorse and is available in five- and seven-seater configurations. Despite being one of Maruti’s older models, its practicality and ease of use sees it find around 5,000-6,000 buyers every month. So here’s a look at what the Eeco has going for it and what it could improve.
Things We Like in Eeco
Sliding rear doors make ingress/egress easier for rear row passengers.
Reliable 1.2-litre petrol engine. Available with a factory-fit CNG kit as well.
Accommodating 540-litre boot.
Things We Don't Like in Eeco
74PS/101Nm power/torque output is low for a people-mover. Engine feels strained with a full passenger load.
Basic safety features like ABS or airbags aren’t available even as an option.
Stand Out Features
Available in five- and seven-seater configurations.
The Maruti Suzuki Eeco is a simple MPV meant for point A to point B transport. Overall, the car is showing its age as it lacks a lot of modern features, whether it’s in terms of safety or comfort and convenience.
"It is a reasonably comfortable people-mover and not only is it affordable to buy, but owning one is pocket-friendly too thanks to its low-on-maintenance nature."
However, it is a reasonably comfortable people-mover and not only is it affordable to buy, but owning one is pocket-friendly too thanks to its low-on-maintenance nature. It is a no-frills multi-purpose vehicle that comes with Maruti’s brand backing and is a good buy for someone who just needs the bare basics.

A report from the research firm Deloitte says that there is going to be a situation reversal where car sales are concerned. The year 2011 has been particularly bad even after recording a whopping 25% growth in the beginning of the year. However, the situation still doesn’t seem to be very positive where only 2-3% growth is expected by the end of this fiscal 2011-2012. But what seems to be quite hopeful is soon after that, the inflation and the poor economic growth will get under control to lift the spirits of the car manufacturers. Anyhow, the future seems to be very bright especially for India where the overall cars in India are far less than the other markets in comparison. Read Full News
