The little Omni is a true blue Japanese wonder! Within its small proportions it is capable of seating 7-8 passengers and to power it around is the 800 cc petrol unit borrowed from the Maruti 800. The Omni has been a great success in its initial years for it was a great vehicle to tool around the entire joint family and it didn't cost a lot. Moreover it was frugal to run. Today the Omni is mainly found in the taxi operator market. not many private takers anymore and out of the many reasons not to buy an Omni the dominating factor remains safety. The is little to protect front occupants in the Omni. Overall, the Omni remains the cheapest people carrier in the market and a favourite amongst intra city cabbies.
