Maruti Ritz

INTERIOR:
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.

Most of these cars are trendy on the inside, and are built to attract those young at heart. The Ritz gets a separate tachometer and a huge dial, which makes it look funky. The touch and feel of the plastics is decent and the overall fit and finish of the plastics is good for the price tag it comes for.

There is sufficient headroom and legroom for the front passengers and at the rear the Beat is a bit tight on knee room. With Ritz and Beat being a tallboy design, they offer the better head space than the Brio.

LXi/LDi: This is the entry-level model for the petrol and diesel engines with features like 60:40 folding rear seat, cup holder in console, ashtray, iCATS, child lock, power steering, manual air conditioner, body coloured bumpers, internally adjusted ORVMs, green tinted glass windows, roof antenna, double horn, etc.

VXi/VDi: This is the mid-variant that sits above the LXi/LDi and it gets features like fabric insert on door trims, front power windows, rear power windows, full wheel cover, black colored B pillar, seatbelt reminder, front seat under tray, etc.

VXi / VDi (ABS): This is upgrade model of petrol version with all the features of Maruti Ritz VXI with ABS (Antilock Braking System) as an extra fitment for safety.

ZXi: This is the highest trim level available only on the petrol version with extra features like radio + CD with speakers, parcel tray, seat height adjuster, cigar lighter, tilt steering, steering wheel mounted audio controls, dual air bags and front ELR seat belt with pretension.

ENGINE:
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 drivability on both is good, and even the gearbox is slick. Fuel efficiency will not be a let down factor either.

1.2-litre petrol:

Ritz gets the recently developed K-Series 1.2-litre petrol motor, which is refined but is a bit languorous as one has to work through, to extract performance. This mill produces 84bhp of power and 113Nm of maximum torque. Refinement levels of the engine are high, and it is a freely revving motor. The gear lever of the Ritz is short and the shifts are positive. The engine doesn’t pant at low speeds as there is sufficient torque even when you drive it in a higher gear. However, one needs to shift down for quick overtaking in the city and the highway.

1.3-litre diesel:

Previous generation Swift had earned notoriety with its diesel engine. The engine was highly refined with low NVH levels and sufficient torque. The Ritz has the same 1.3-litre DDiS engine. This engine produces 75bhp and a maximum torque of 190Nm.

There is some amount of lag in this engine and it performs well only if the revs are kept above 2000rpm for best performance. One has to downshift to make those overtaking moves. The engine comes mated to a five-speed manual transmission that is slick with positive and short throws.

RIDE AND HANDLING CHARACTERISTICS:
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.

The powertrains on most of the hatchbacks in this segment are similar if not the same. It is the driving characteristics that vary. To be more specific, it is more of the handling that differs than the ride quality. All the cars in this segment have a sorted ride as the suspension doesn’t jiggle and disturb the peace of the occupants. Road undulations are well-taken care by the suspension. The Ritz has one of the best ride suppleness as it underpins the softest suspension set-up that glides over potholes.

The suspension set-up is the softest on the Ritz. Drive it quickly around a bend and you shall notice the body roll as this hatchback lack the dynamism that other competition possesses. The steering feels a bit slack at higher speeds, which further doesn’t any confidence into the driver. However, it is lightweight at low speeds, which makes driving a breeze in city traffic.
