Hi.. The diesel version of Maruti Ritz comes packed with a1.3 L, 1248 cc DDiS engine along with a turbocharger and inter cooler combination which offers clear emission and higher torque. With 5 speed manual transmission Gearbox it delivers greater performance as well as high fuel efficiency. The cooled ERG system endowed in the engine helps in cooled exhaust gas recirculation and cleaner emissions. The 16 valve cylinder head offers improve breathing and better fuel efficiency. The DOHC valve configuration helps in precise and quick valve operation. This high powered engine offers a maximum power of 75 PS at 4000 rpm and a torque of 190 Nm at 2000 rpm. Thus, the diesel version of Maruti Swift worths every penny of its cost. As far as maintenance of a diesel car is concerned, it always falls higher than the same of its petrol counterparts. The main reason behind this is the more sophisticated functioning of petrol engines which reduces the need of maintenance up to a certain extent. Thanks,
Maruti has a good and vast service network and there will be no problem of maintenance and replacement of parts at later stage but the resale value of the car might decrease as the company has decided to discontinue the vehicle. Despite this, there will never be any shortage of parts as manufacturers make parts for next 10 years. Also, as Ritz share a good number of parts with its sibling Swift there will be no shortage whatsoever. If you would like to consider, the Indian auto market has many other offerings in the same segment such as Tata Bolt, Nissan Micra, Ford Figo, Honda Brio and Grand i10, Maruti Swift, Chevrolet Sail hatchback.
