I mistakenly answered your question for Airbag option in above answer. The ABS (anti-lock braking system) option is available in three Maruti Ritz variants including Ritz Vxi, Vdi and Zxi. Where in Vdi and Vxi variants the ABS+EBD feature is optional, in Zxi variant it is available as an standard feature. Thanks,

The Maruti Ritz model is available in 5 variants including 2 diesel (Ldi, Vdi) and 3 petrol variants (Lxi, Vxi and Zxi). The Airbag option is only available in Swift Zxi model as a standard feature. If you don't want the airbag feature, you can go for Maruti Ritz Vxi model, as the only difference between these two variants is of Airbag. 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.
