Maruti Suzuki Eeco is a family seater minivan that hit the markets in 2010. Eeco carries design elements from the Versa. The front bumper is fairly large. Due to its height, the side profile is the most dominating part of the minivan. The rear maintains a flat design, in line with Maruti's other minivans. The dual tone colour scheme and good quality fabric gives the interior a luxurious feel. There is generous leg room for passengers. It has a boot space of 540 litres and seats can be folded to create more.

Maruti Suzuki Eeco can come with a petrol or CNG engine, both of which offer a displacement capacity of 1196 cc. The petrol engine offers a power output of 73 bhp and torque of 101 Nm, while the CNG engine gives an output of 63 bhp and 84 Nm. This is paired with an efficient 5 speed manual transmission gearbox that gives smooth shifts thanks to the Diagonal Shift Assistance.

The standard Maruti Suzuki Eeco does not come with an audio system, however one can be easily added. Drum brakes are fitted to rear wheels, while ventilated disc brakes are at the front to provide sufficient stopping power. The suspension system includes a McPherson Strut in the front.

The competitors of Maruti Suzuki Eeco are Tata Venture and Maruti Omni. Eeco trumps them by offering more fuel capacity, engine power and slightly better mileage.
