Expert Test Drive Review
Basic comfort is what would appear initially in your mind and you won’t be wrong as the interiors carry the same no frills design as the car’s exteriors. A decent dashboard with A/C controls and vents are in the limelight on the center console along with a humble yet useful speedo that tells you how fast you’re going. However, the steering appears to be a bit dull. The plastics are of good quality with a fair feel. The interiors don’t give the rich feel of wood or leather, but don’t appear to be cheap either. Cabin space has been utilized in such a way that it makes the EECO a car with loads of headroom, legroom and boot space. Another thing that the EECO offers is excellent comfort which makes it an ideal car for long journeys or for ferrying goods.
The boot space offered in Eeco is 540 litres that is pretty descent and provides with ample space to store a lot of luggage for bigger families.
The speedometer is analog with a digital fuel indicator but the tachometer is absent from the console.
The gear lever is small and helps in swift gear changing due to the diagonal shifting and is without any leather covering.
Cup holders are absent both from the front and the rear gates in all the models.
The exterior of the EECO is more on the lines of the Versa. However, its angular lines differentiate it from the Versa which was a tad curvier than the EECO. The dimensions of the new car are quite similar to the Versa albeit with a revised height. The subtle headlamps with humble little tail lamps make it appear quite decent. The overall exteriors of the EECO are well-executed and lend the car a subtle look which won’t make you feel embarrassed when standing next to it.
The front has lens head lamps, plastic bumpers and plastic grill with a Suzuki badge and a flatter design.
The rear has lens tail lamps, a wider wind screen and a unique of its kind vertical design
Side profile is a bit sporty with graphics coming as a standard feature that have helped a lot in improving the looks and feel of the vehicle
The ground clearance is quite good with 160mm that ensures safe and bump free ride
It has a 1.2-litre G-Series engine which is a brand new motor from Maruti. The 1200cc mill develops 75PS of power and 101Nm of torque. This is transferred to the rear wheels via a five-speed gearbox with Diagonal Shift Assist, which the manufacturer claims makes the shifts smoother. Power delivery is quite smooth and the engine is capable of pulling the car nicely even at low speeds in the fifth gear. However, when you have to tackle an incline you need to rev the car a bit more just to keep the momentum going. The EECO doesn’t feature a power steering, however, the conventional rack and pinion unit is quite smooth and doesn’t feel heavy at all.
Engine & Performance Details
In going from 0-100 kilo meter per hour sprint it takes 15.7 seconds but the engine has to rev a lot
The top speed of Eeco as per the ARAI results under the test conditions is 147 Kmph
In-gear acceleration figures are not available for Maruti Eeco.
The gear box is 5 speed manual transmission with diagonal shift assist that has made the gear shifting very easy
It comes equipped with disc brakes at the front and drums at the rear which serve you with ample braking to bring the car to a halt without any effort or nervousness. Ample ground clearance allows you to drive the EECO on rough terrain without worrying much about the underbody of the car getting damaged. These aspects lend the car a decent handling.
Handling Braking & Safety Details
The handling of the car is good with ventilated discs and drum and the suspension also ensures a jerk free ride.
Front ventilated disc brakes and rear drum brakes stop the car very quickly and in a very short distance.
Side beams are given for collision protection and child lock with seat belts in both front and rear.
Anti lock braking system (ABS) is not required as the vehicle doesnt attain so much speed
Traction control is not given in any of the models of Eeco
The McPherson struts up front and a three-link rigid rear suspension is a bit hard, but it is capable of absorbing the bumps and ditches on the road quite well. Thus though comfort is not fantastic, the ride is decent.
Comfort & Suspension Details
The car is quite comfortable with heater and air conditioner that works well according to the outside temperature, head rests, comfortable seats and rugged suspension that gives a jerk free ride.
McPherson strut is given in the front as the engine is in the front
3 link rigid suspension is in the rear of the vehicle as it can go for heavy loading also
