Figo or Ritz....which one to go for?

Figo or Ritz....which one to go for?

I recently took a test drive for Ford Figo Diesel and I was pleasantly surprised. I am not particularly a fan of Ford cars but this car was surely a delight to drive with its smooth gear shifts. The confusion arose when I took a test drive of the Maruti Ritz Diesel. The smoothness of the engine, the pickup, comfort of switching gears etc were far better as compared. The cabin of Figo is a little low in height which may cause a problem for tall people. The Ritz is a little more comfortable and spacious in comparison. At the same time, the finish of the interiors of Figo gains a little more points in comparison. In terms of ground clearance, Figo seems to be a little lower than Ritz causing problems at the speed bumps and potholes. Figo has a ground clearance of 168mm and Ritz has a clearance of 170mm. Though by the look of it, it is just 2 mm but when 5 people sit in the car, it makes a hell lot of a difference. I am getting mixed reviews regarding the mileage as well. Some seem to be happy with it and agree with the company claims whereas others are complaining that with the AC on, the car requires a refill pretty soon. One can say that mileage can also vary depending on the way one handles and drives the car, but being a Maruti car it is far easier to believe the claims that the company makes even if not the users.  Plus another major disadvantage with the Figo can be the after sale service and maintenance. Here no doubt, no one can beat Maruti. Tata maybe close but Maruti still overpowers all.

      many people believe that figo is a better car but it is no match with ritz as mileage and power are totaly different the comfort, pick up of speed of ritz is far better than figo .One disadvantage in figo is its suspension is not good,and its ground clearance is less than ritz . that can cause damage while crossing speed bumps.But if you are worried about the shape of ritz ,then from now on don't worry,because shape is adopted from an has a very aerodynamic shape. if it was not so, then how can ritz pick up the speed faster than figo?so if you are buying new car then go for ritz it is the best car to move in highways with family.and the comfort is very good as compared to figo
