Chennai: The popular multi-utility vehicle Maruti Omni, has been refurbished and upgraded, though it retains its original looks, but upgraded interiors.
According to a Maruti Udyog Limited spokesperson, the best-selling vehicle from the day it was launched will now have additional features based on customer feedback.
Accordingly, the family van now has radial tyres and a new front grille. It also comes with clear lens headlamps and graphics on the side body panels to enhance its visual appeal. It also has a new, stylised rear view mirror.
The changes in the interiors lend a fresh new look, while also adding to the functional benefits for the Omni customer.
The two-tone seat upholstery and sporty new instrument cluster provide the freshness. The dashboard, which has been totally redesigned, enables more functional benefits: a glove box that can be locked, a cup holder, a new centre console with space for utility items, provision for stereo, electronic taxi meter etc.
The engine has been upgraded to meet Bharat Stage III emission norms. Similarly, the new Omni has a headlamp-leveling device to meet contemporary standards.
The model comes in new colours - crystal gold, icy blue, bright red
and Caribbean blue in addition to its existing silky silver and superior white.
The vehicle will be priced at Rs2.29 Lac (ex- show room, Delhi).
