Hi,

Today I have visited local Maruti Dealer M/s.Bharath Automobiles in Mangalore to see brand new Maruthi Omni Demister ! Recently Mr.Varun told me that he has seen new Maruthi omni with a/c controls etc. More over today in local paper Maruthi Suzuki gave an advertisement about it. I had a shock of my life time to see same old Omni with heater and blower and this is badged as "brand new Maruthi Omni Demister" [frustration]

Big blower/ heater is fixed below the dash board and its vent is directed to windshield to de-mistify the windshield [lol] That all! What an idea! I had great expectation that there will be A/c., interior change, new instruments, better suspension with anti-roll bar in the front etc., The blower is so huge that it eats up the valuable floor space in front ( bad news for persons who are planning to upgrade from three wheeler rickshaw to Omni to ferry school children because a small boy can easily fit over there and capacity will be less!)[evil]

Omni I meas so called "New Omni Demister" is costing more over 3 lacks now on road! And it is same old wine not even in new bottle! What to say.

Re: New (?) Maruti Omni Demister launched !!!!

Me too saw a Omni in Mangalore, with all the a/c controls and shocked..

I also saw the heater knob too.. Even the dash is attractive.
What about other changes ?

Re: New (?) Maruti Omni Demister launched !!!!

ha ha...so actually the people siting behind will never get a feel of AC. whats the point in this innovation [frustration]. the blowers should have been in the center row which would have been better and would have given some selling point.

No, Nothing. In paper advertisement it is mentioned " BRAND NEW MARUTI OMNI DEMISTER" ![lol]

Varun, Its the same old dash. Its not A/C controls, Just blower and heater only! And blower is directed to the windshield. Oh my god! I am feeling dizzy. [lol]

Maruti has actually named it “Omni Demister”. Eh? Anyways thanks for the information. Please upload some snaps or a scan of that advertisement.

Tata Venture is better than Omni. Ofcourse, you get added benefit of diesel.

I agree with you but the problem is venture costs almost 2L+ compared to omni.
But fit & finish is better, not to forget more powerful engine that too diesel.
Overall, Venture is expensive but more VFM than Omni.

Omni offers almost bed-like compartment at back. Usually,[lol]

Venture is having:-
  • Better fit and finish.
  • More comfort.
  • Bigger cabin.
  • More power.
  • A/C[evil]
  • Image
  • Safety(more than Omni at least)
  • Three front facing rows.
  • And yes,ITS A DIESEL and is cheaper to run!!

Oh..[lol]
BTW,the rear seats of Omni are the most uncomfy ones I have seated on till date,they have very very less thigh support,in fact nearly no thigh support.
