Omni definitely makes a case here. Wonder where it would rate on the international crash test.

And to add to it most of these are driven by notoriously bad drivers. Sitting in the front passenger seat and braking hard just inches behind a large truck or a Bus is an experience best avoided.

Voted OMNI. Maruti has a fleet of ugly cars (IMO) but this takes the entire Cakeshop !!

I can never forget this incident all my life and if had my way, would have probably sued Maruti for even designing such a car let along selling it.

Back in 2002, me and a close friend were in Coorg during our college vacation. We were using his bro's Omni for some local drives. During one such drive through the country side, we were driving down an incline at around 50-60km/hr when a mongoose scurried across. My friend braked hard to avoid squashing the vermin. The next thing we know, is:

...we were doing a 'Stoppie' in an Omni !!

The car toppled and we were really lucky to escape with minor injuries since the road was not a regular metaled one and also was a soft pathway.

P.S - Me & My friend had never tried a stoppie even during our cycling days.
