Maruti Suzuki Eeco Cargo has been moved from the brand’s regular Arena dealerships where entry-level models are sold to commercial showrooms
Maruti Suzuki India Limited (MSIL) opened its 300th commercial showroom in the domestic market nearly three months ago. With a presence in more than 230 cities, the Maruti Suzuki Commercial retail network forms a significant part in the brand’s total sales outlets crossing over 2,900 showrooms across India.
With the discontinuation of Omni, the Eeco has bigger shoes to fill and Maruti Suzuki is certainly reacting to it. The commercial range of Maruti Suzuki includes Super Carry LCV and Eeco Cargo and the latter has now been moved from Arena to commercial dealerships. The Eeco Cargo is available in petrol and CNG options.

The Eeco Cargo has a turning radius of 4.5 metres and there is a covered cargo cabin plate with bed to carry the cargo around safely. It measures 3,675 mm long, 1,475 mm and stands 1,800 tall with 2,350 mm wheelbase. The front and rear tracks stand at 1,280 mm and 1,290 mm respectively.
The cargo box has a length of 1,620 mm, width of 1,300 mm and 1,070 mm in height. The Maruti Suzuki Eeco Cargo has a gross weight of 1,540 kilograms and is suspended on MacPherson front strut and three-link rigid rear suspension. The stopping duty is handled by front disc and rear drum brakes.
