July 14, 2014: India's leading automaker, Maruti Suzuki has now launched a limited edition version of its hatchback Ritz , called the Elate with 12 additional features. Customers will have to pay an extra sum of Rs 20,000-25,000 on the regular model to convert it into the special edition.

Mechanically, it remains unchanged.

Overview

Maruti Ritz , popularly known as ‘Splash’ in the overseas market has proved one of the bestselling hatchbacks for the company so far. Positioned in premium A2 segment in India, the car is a perfect blend of European and Japanese expertise that spells lifestyle, fashion and design in one package. Maruti Ritz sits below sister Swift hatchback in Maruti Suzuki’s range of cars. Launched in 2009, the car is now in its mature form by getting several updates over these years. It has carved for itself a strong position in the segment with powerful engine and interesting features that can easily take likes of others in the competition. Blessed with quality aerodynamic exterior design, Ritz is very sporty looking and pose aggressive attitude on roads. Talking about the design concept, there are mainly two aspects, one is the tall design layout which provides more headroom to the occupants and the other is the pleasant front façade. The front profile is rich looking and practical in nature where large curvy headlamps and smiling grille speaks about the attitude of the car. The tiny chrome engraved badge of the company has been placed on the front portion that expresses the same trust which has been part of large customer base for so many years. Rear portion of the car is bestowed with boomerang styled tail lights that gives a unique appeal to the onlookers.

 

Interiors are built on the European footprints and are dual toned that pleases the eyes at first glance. The multi-informal display, the multi-functional steering wheel and state of the art stereo system with USB and Bluetooth connectivity are some of the attributes that easily beats other cars on luxury grounds. There is best-in-class head, shoulder and leg room in this small wonder to gratify the occupants on longer journeys. The 60:40 rear split capability takes the extra load of luggage while travelling. Moreover, the seat utility tray provided in the car is unique in the class that takes sight out of the mind.

 

The rich Maruti Suzuki hatchback is offered in both petrol and diesel engine options in the market. The petrol version is a 1.2L K-12 series engine producing 86bhp and 113Nm of peak torque and is coupled with five-speed manual transmission system and a 4-speed automatic transmission variant is also available that too has been receiving appreciation in the market. On the other hand the diesel powered Ritz house in a powerful 1.3L DDis engine that churns out 74bhp and 190Nm of peak torque paired with 5-speed manual transmission gearbox. Both the engines are peppy, frugal and powerful at the same time returning excellent mileage in urban driving conditions.

 

Maruti Suzuki Ritz is certainly a mind blowing product from the company which has kept the same level of trust as by sibling Swift line of cars over so many years. The car is still a hot selling hatch in the segment where Hyundai Grand i10 has recently comes into picture.

Maruti Ritz’s exteriors speaks of its governing design and prevailing style. The car serves the very purpose of stylishness what young enthusiasts want in their favorite car. Actually the practical design elements have the ability to lure customers of every class irrespective of their age and group. Just cast a glance frankly on the exteriors, we will realize that the car wants business. The inimitable tall layout adopted in this car makes it stands apart from its competitors.

The frontal part boasts of large and curvy headlamps which offers superb visibility and the smiling grille on which company’s logo is placed at the centre. The front bumper contains the fog lamps which makes easy to focus on unpleasant weather conditions. The windshield is wide and does not interfere driver and passenger’s visibility. The side profile is trendy and youthful with unique crease lines on the body that makes it an ideal match for young customers.

Come to the rear and feel the upmarket experience with newly fashioned tailgate and boomerang styled tail lamps creates a fresh appeal to the onlookers. The radically designed rear part of the car has really caught the attention of the people. The boot door seems to be slightly bending towards inside. The rear bumper is home to integrated spoiler and reflector additions. It’s a commendable and actually a daring job done by the company as few people may not like this radical concept adopted at the rear portion. But overall the car has the incredible appealing that is incomparable to the other cars in the segment.

Exterior Measurements:

Maruti Ritz has been offered in the hatchback segment, so dimensionally it looks small but not compact from distance. Ritz measures 3715mm in length, 1680mm in width and 1620mm in height . The overall wheelbase of the car measures 2360mm, so five average passengers can fit inside comfortably.

Interiors

Ed's Take: Ritz is based on the platform of the old Swift, but being a tall boy there is sufficient space on the inside. The fit and finish of the plastic is also decent and the bells and whistles on the offering are good. There isn't much to complain about the Ritz, except the fact that it now looks aged when compared to competition

The radical design at the outside seems to be outfitted in a similar fashion inside the car. The interiors are mesmerizing and one cannot move away without catching a sight into it. The irresistible look inside makes the onlookers feel they are looking at a sports car or some executive car. Interiors does looks similar to sister Swift but also have unique approach of its own. The cabin is dual toned and quality fabric is used to define that rich ambience. The dashboard is broad, wider in shape and a little high too with instrument cluster adorned with dazzling illuminations redefining the straightforwardness and sophistication at the same time. It has all the essential information system like tachometer, digital trip meter, clock and temperature keeping the driver up to date about the journey. The gear knob is placed on the dash and looks upmarket. It feels that the car is designed keeping every minute detail in mind and the fine elaborations of its own unique style never seen before in any other car in the segment.

Interior Comfort:

Without unfolding the comfort secrets the car cannot allure large customers. The wealthy features are no less than of a premium hatchback that gives joy while riding. The car has effective air conditioning system along with the air cons placed precisely at the either sides giving relaxation while driving. The central console consists of integrated 2-Din multimedia entertainment system that keeps the passengers on an exciting routine of music. It has the latest connectivity inputs in the form of USB, Bluetooth and Aux-In, so the passengers are not out of hearing relentless music. Similarly, for the maximum comfort on journey, the audio controls are mounted on the electrical steering wheel which is also tilt adjustable. The windows are powered at both front and the back. There are several storage compartments which serves the purpose of stuffing things like cup holders, console box, ticket holders, parcel tray and other utilities besides a huge luggage space that is enough for a journey of a small family. The seating arrangement in this car are incredible which is seen rarely in this segment like 60:40 split rear seats, driver’s seat height adjustment that helps in reclining, lateral movements as well as other possible adjustments. There are head restraints provided for both front and rear seats. Other comfort features includes boot lid opener, remote open fuel lid , antenna, cigar lighter, etc.

Interior Measurement:

The car does carry enough space inside which can fit in comfortably five passengers. The roomy cabin measures 990cm for the front headroom, 940cm for the rear headroom, shoulder room that measures 1310cm, knee room that counts 790cm (maximum) and 570cm (minimum) and the legroom consisting of 1210cm (maximum) and 970cm (minimum) respectively.

Acceleration & Pick-Up

Ed's Take: The acceleration of the Ritz is good for a hatchback. It does well in terms of outright performance as both the engines are peppy.

Engine and Performance

Ed's Take: Both the engines on the Ritz are good and picking amongst both won't be a bad decision. Hence, choose the engine as per your usage. The diesel has better mileage.

Maruti Ritz which is offered in both diesel and petrol versions is dynamic on roads no matter which engine one chooses. The petrol engine which is a 1.2L K-12 series engine with a displacement capacity of 1197cc, produces 86bhp and 113Nm of max torque. The engine comes mated with 5-speed manual or 4-speed automatic transmission options. The 4-cylinder 16-valve powertrain is pretty responsive when it comes to motoring in cities. On the other hand the diesel powered Ritz employs a 1.3L DDiS engine which is an improved version to previous one with some decent tweaks. The Fiat made engine which has a displacement capacity of 1248cc, comes with 4-cylinder CRDi technology that returns 74bhp and 190Nm of torque. The engine has a five-step multi-jet injection technology which returns low noise levels and clean on emissions. The performance of both diesel and petrol variants is more than adequate in city driving conditions, so owning either of them is a good choice.

 

Power:

 

Editor's take : The drivability on both is good, and even the gearbox is slick. The gearing is also good for linear power delivery.

 

Ritz comes loaded with commanding diesel and petrol engines. The 1.2L K-12 4-cylinder petrol engine with multi-point fuel injection technology generates 84bhp @6000rpm and torque output of 113Nm @4500rpm. The diesel engine on the other hand is a 1.3L DDiS 4-cylinder engine which is now tweaked to get output of 74bhp @4000rpm and torque value of 190Nm @2000rpm. The engine is combined with direct multi-jet injection technology which gives efficient combustion and increased torque to the engine and is powerful and economical at the same time. Both the engines especially the diesel one is rocking sales chart in terms of mileage and performance.

 

Acceleration and Pick-Up:

 

Editor's take : The acceleration of the Ritz is good for a hatchback. It does well in terms of outright performance as both the engines are peppy.

 

The powerful and lively engines employed in Ritz does the job of pick-up and acceleration more than needed in cities. The car picks up smoothly on roads and one feels effortless in driving. The petrol engine which is hungrier in chasing the speeds pushes the car from 0-100 in 13.8 seconds of time reaching the top speed of 163kmph. While the diesel engine powered Ritz gets in action instantly and dashes to 100km mark from standstill in just 14.3 seconds of time gaining the top figure of 157kmph. The all-rounder Ritz boasts of perkiness when it comes to road.

Mileage

Ed's Take: Fuel efficiency will not be a let down factor as this gets the same DDiS engine, which is known as the multijet. Some drivability improvements have been made on the Ritz.

 

Maruti Ritz is a good family hatchback that has compact dimensions and powerful fuel efficient engine to provide classic urban driving. The dynamic petrol and diesel engines gives excellent mileage in cities. The petrol version which is powered by 1.2L K-12 series engine is one of the few petrol engines which complies with BSIV emission standards that in turn delivers mileage of 18.5kmpl. The automatic variant gives 17kmpl which is slightly less but much appreciable in terms of mileage delivery. The diesel powered Ritz reads pretty good mileage figure of 23.20kmpl which can easily take on rivals and even small cars in the market.

Power of Maruti Ritz

Ed's Take: The drivability on both is good, and even the gearbox is slick. The gearing is also good for linear power delivery.

Maruti Ritz Accessories
Stereo & Accessories

Ed's Take: The Ritz petrol gets in-dash music system, steering mounted audio, while the diesel comes like a plain vanilla ice cream till the VDi. The ZDi now gets all the features that one wants to see in a Ritz, just like the Ritz ZXi.

 

The new Maruti Ritz is offered with decent accessories. It now comes packed with improved music system with CD, Mp3, Radio and USB playback . The music is amplified with the help of two speakers provided both at front and rear sides. Besides this, there is seat belt reminder, light off/key off reminder, digital clock, accessory socket, parking brake indicator in the accessory package.

You can now buy Maruti Ritz accessories online. Great discounts available.
Braking & Handling

Ed's Take: The Ritz being softly sprung, its ride is well compliant. The handling might just not impress you too much, as there is some amount of body roll. The Ritz isn't made for driving enthusiasts.

 

Maruti Suzuki Ritz has been termed as a practical alternative to sibling Swift with similar zing on roads. The tall boy design this car possess, attracts lesser body roll while cornering in cities while the suspension is soft offering good stability on roads. If someone wants to taste the capability of this car, then he has to move on to freeways where the car glides away. The dynamic braking system offers utmost safety to the occupants. There are ventilated disk brakes provided at the front while the rear are offered with drum type brakes, combination of both delivers powerful braking mechanism. The suspension system consists of McPherson strut and coil spring at the front axle while the rear has got Torsion beam and coil spring which helps in flat riding. The car also comes with Anti-lock braking system with Electronic brake distribution technology which further boost braking mechanism and helps prevent wheel lock up in case of unexpected braking.

Safety & Security

Ed's Take: The Ritz petrol comes with two airbags and ABS, while the diesel gets only ABS as an optional and there is no airbags option in the diesel.

 

The car has been offered with optimum safety with few advance features. The body structure and the aerodynamics has been made stronger than it actually looks. It comes with dual front SRS airbag for the driver and the co-passenger which is a lifesaving safety equipment in case of any sudden collision. The ELR seat belt at the front enhanced with pretensions restricts the force when car meets any unanticipated braking or collision. Maruti Suzuki Ritz safety is boosted by Anti-lock braking system with Electronic brake force distribution while in some variants, the front and rear fog lamps provides clear visibility in unpleasant weather conditions. The car is also equipped with Intelligent Computerized Anti-Theft System (iCATS) that safeguards the car against theft. Other safety features includes central locking and child lock for worry free driving.

Maruti Ritz Wheels
Wheels

The real oomph of this car can be seen outside where it sits on stylish 14-inch alloy wheels that looks vigorous in appearance. The top end variants gets the alloy wheels while the mid and lower end variants are offered with steel wheels which are equally appreciable. The car gets tubeless tyres which are puncture resistant providing comfortable journey with lesser drag on roads and without worrying about changing them again and again. The tyres measures 165/80 R14 for the low-mid variants LXI, VXI, LDI and VDI while the top end models ZXI and ZDI gets 185/70 R14 sized tyres. These bigger sized tyres have proved to be better on off-roading.

Maruti Ritz Pros

 

1. Very spacious and well crafted interiors.

2. Exterior appearance is aggressive.

3. Fuel economy of diesel engine is good. 

4. After sales service is impressive.

5. Stable and agile at high speeds.

 

 

Maruti Ritz Cons

 

1. Price range can be a tad more competitive. 

2. Fuel economy of the automatic version must improve.

3. Boot space capacity is too less.

4. Many other comfort and safety features can be added.

5. Internal space is slightly lesser at the rear end.
