Maruti Suzuki Crash Test

I remember Maruti Suzuki Eeco scoring a zero on the crash test in 2016 and yet the sales figures were not affected. Since most other vans like Omni, Versa, etc have been discontinued and Eeco being one of the known vans, how safe is the vehicle now? Has it cleared the global NCAP crash tests now?

In 2019 several norms were introduced in India for passenger vehicles which made a driver airbag, ABS with EBD, high-speed alert system, rear parking sensors and seatbelt reminder mandatory on all new cars sold in India. In order to continue their production Maruti Suzuki Eeco was also compelled to update the car to include the features or else it would also go out of production like Omni and Gypsy.
After the last update, the Eeco was priced between Rs 3.52 lakh for the base variant to Rs 6.55 lakh (both ex-showroom New Delhi) for the Eeco Care model. The latest update has bumped the price to Rs 3.61 lakh for the base variant to Rs 6.61 lakh (both ex-showroom New Delhi) for the top-spec variant.
The car now complies with the crash test norms.
The engine is currently compliant with BSIV norms and there are plans to upgrade it to BSVI. If that happens buyers can expect a rise further.
