The BS6 compliant version of Maruti Suzuki Eeco was launched in India on Friday. The price for Maruti Suzuki Eeco BS6 in India has been set between Rs 3.81 lakh and Rs 6.84 lakh (all prices ex-showroom, Delhi).

We are confident to sustain a strong foothold in the segment with Eeco and would like to thank our customers for their constant support," he added.
