The Maruti Suzuki Eeco is offered as a passenger van as well as a commercial van. Both variants of the van enjoy good sales in India. Even though the Eeco has been the successor of Omni, it refrained from having the typical boxy design of its predecessor. Speaking about the positive aspects, the Eeco offered more efficiency, space and usability than the Omni. The Maruti Suzuki Eeco also gets an option for a factory-fitted CNG variant.
