Currently, the Commercial retail showrooms are responsible for the sale of the Super Carry LCV only as the Omni was recently discontinued owing to its inability to be upgraded. To expand the options range for the customers, Maruti Suzuki has now decided to remove the Eeco Cargo from the Arena showrooms and sell it from the Commercial chain instead. The Maruti Eeco has been available with two fuel options, petrol and CNG. The petrol variant is powered by a 1.2-litre BSIV compliant unit that delivers a maximum power of 73 PS and 101 Nm. On the other hands, the CNG-fitted models can churn out a power of 62 PS and 85 Nm. It comes with a five-speed manual gearbox.
This commercial vehicle’s length, width and height measure 3,675 mm, 1,475 mm and 1,800 mm, respectively. It features a 1,280 front track and a 1,290 mm rear track. On the back of the vehicle, the Eeco Cargo also gets a covered 1,620-mm-long cargo space with a flat loading bay. This cargo room has a loading capacity of 620 kg. The vehicle weighs over 1.5 tons. With a minimum turning radius of 4.5 m, the Maruti Eeco can allow easy manoeuvrability in jam-packed traffic.
