Maruti Suzuki has extended the availability of ECSTAR oil brand to its regular dealerships in the country. Previously, it was limited to NEXA service workshops only but now it will be offered across all the Maruti Suzuki Arena workshops in the Indian market. The company also launched a new range of engine oil 0W16 which is said to be helpful in reducing friction, resulting in improved mileage and lower CO2 emissions while ensuring engine durability. For those asking, ECSTAR is a global brand of lubricants, coolant and car care products.
Introducing ECSTAR range of products to ARENA customers, Managing Director & CEO of Maruti Suzuki, Mr. Kenichi Ayukawa said, "At Maruti Suzuki, we believe in providing our customers with the best of technology and convenience. And to ensure optimum performance of Maruti Suzuki cars, we are now extending ECSTAR portfolio to ARENA. ECSTAR oil is a powerful lubricant that not only enhances the performance of vehicles, but its optimal lubricant formulation, also offers outstanding engine protection, which results into long life of the engine and improved fuel efficiency." The engine oils go through more than 20 stringent tests with over 8000 hours at the engine level and 160,000 kms of vehicle level testing to qualify gor ECSTAR brand.
ECSTAR brand was introduced by Maruti Suzuki's parent Suzuki Motor Corporation, Japan in 1984. In 2015, SMC promoted ECSTAR as a global brand of high quality products. At present, the ECSTAR oil range is widely marketed across Europe, USA, Mexico, Australia and South East Asia. The range of ECSTAR products will be procured from select local suppliers here. These suppliers will undergo stringent tests to qualify their products to be included under ECSTAR umbrella. The ECSTAR product portfolio includes engine oils, coolants, automatic transmission oil, car care products and screen wash for cars. More products are expected to be added to the range at a later stage.
