Look and Style: It doesn't look good from the back, but overall the looks are good. Quite different from the other small cars available in the market.
Comfort: From a driver's perspective it's a delight to drive. The gear shift is on the centre console and very very handy. I have loved to drive it, especially on long highway runs. The viewing area up front is also large. So driving, even in traffic is fairly easy. Even at the back, the seating is very comfortable, with good thigh support and leg space. It also doesn't feel as upright as the Wagon R.
Pickup: I had driven the Spark and Indica earlier and compared to the two, the pickup is good. On the expressway, the Ritz zooms to over 100 kmpl with ease, just a slight pressure on the accelerator and the car speeds up. Even on inclines (ghat roads) with 4-5 adults and luggage, the car shows no signs of getting tired. Mileage: Contrary to what some people have said on this site, my Ritz purchased in 2010 gives me decent average, between 14-17 kmpl.
Best Features: The high gear shift on the centre console.
Needs to improve: Looks at the rear, including the light cluster should be redone.
Overall Experience: Good. If you can look beyond the overall exterior design of the car, then u won't regret buying it at all.

    I felt Vista is a better choice compared to Ritz. Its got better looks, more features and is priced less.

    Yes the new Indica Vista, especially the one that is being advertised currently, with 90PS power does indeed look good. But then, given a choice between a Suzuki and a Tata Motors, I guess the Japanese still make better cars, as far as the performance and engines and fuel efficiency is concerned, isn't it?

    Both of them runs on the same engines as far as diesel is concerned. I.e. Fiat's multijet engine. The pricing of Swift and Ritz are too high as compared to the Vista. I mean, Even top end Ritz does not have rear window defogger which even second variant of Vista has. It even does not have Airbags. The features of both the cars and even space in the cabin is very less compared to Vista. But when style is concerned, SWIFT is a SWIFT. Of course Vista too looks cool, but surely not as cool as the Swift. The back seat of Vista is best in its class, while the driving seat of Swift is best in two classes above too. I did not drive the Ritz, so can't comment. But the back seat of base variant which i travelled was worst, it did not even have partial head rests.
