Maruti Suzuki, the brand known for its elite style cars with effective functionality and affordable prices, has currently announced the launch of its ninth venture in the BS6 genre in India.
The Eeco BS6 launched by Maruti Suzuki is initially priced at Rs. 3.81 Lakhs for sale in India going up to Rs. 4.21 Lakhs for 5 seater AC variant. Eeco BS6 represents the hike in the price up to Rs. 20,000 to 30,000 depending on its various models.
Please Note: The aforesaid prices are for the Eeco BS6 petrol model as the brand still needs to release the prices of its CNG version.
Talking about the engine, Maruti has again processed its G-Series engine to get installed in its upcoming ventures like the Eeco BS6 model rather than using K-Series which was utilized for cars like Maruti Suzuki Baleno, Ignis, WagonR and Swift. The reason to bring back in the G-Series is simply that the older 1.2-liter unit can be mounted longitudinally and send power to the rear wheels, which is not possible with the K12 engine.
As per ARAI, the fuel efficiency of the Maruti’s BS6 version is higher than its BS4 version and it is up from 15.37kpl to 16.11kpl.b. Whereas there are no alterations in the power figure (i.e. 73bhp). 98 Nm torque is produced by the engine.
