Pros : Good Mileage, Excelllent interiors and Loaded with power

Cons : Rear design of the car is not good.

Look and Style: Hi All, I am Vishal , 6 months back I became the proud owner of Maruti Ritz Vxi petrol. The front looks of Maruti Ritz are good but I would not appreciate its rear looks as its rear bumpers are not as sober as other competing hatchbacks. The company could have changed rear design resembling Chevrolet Beat to give it a perfect design. Comfort: I would compliment the small segment car leaders, Maruti Suzuki to inbuilt class interiors in this small hatchback. The car has sufficient space for 5 passengers, the rear shoulder space is bit congested for 3 passengers. The fabric upholstery used in the car is of excellent quality and the quality of plastics used for dash-board is much better than Hyundai i10. Pickup: Loaded with power, K-series engine boosts Maruti Ritz with excellent pick up and acceleration. I have also test driven Hyundai i10 but would say  power and pick up of Ritz is much better. Though, the driving of Hyundai i10 is very smooth but it is not as gripped as  Maruti Ritz. Mileage: Mileage is the value for money factor for choosing Maruti Ritz, I get mileage of 13-14 kmpl in city conditions and around 16 on highways from Maruti Ritz.  I think that the car deserves the mileage in a city like Lucknow. Best Features: I would appreciate Maruti Ritz because of its fine interiors, good mileage, excellent power, efficient power steering and powerful braking. Needs to improve: Rear Bumper looks should be re-designed and company should make the rear looks some what resembling Maruti Swift or Hyundai i10. Overall Experience: Overall experience with Maruti Ritz has been awesome, I have driven it in almost all the conditions and I think Ritz stands as a value for money product in its price range for a small family. Comparing it with Hyundai i10, Maruti Ritz is far ahead in terms of power, pick up and interiors. If anyone is opting for Hyundai i10 I would suggest that buddy to go and have a test drive of  Ritz and I am sure you will opt for Maruti Ritz.

    hi, planning to go for Ritz but nt able to decide VXi or Zxi? of course zxi z best option but any cons wit vxi?

    Sobi |04 Feb,2011 09:19:21 PM

    You can consider VXI with ABS VXI don' Driver seat height adjustment and tilt steering.. other options like Alloy and audio u can purchase from outside... U decide....

    MOHIT |08 Feb,2011 01:12:11 AM

    There is nothing bad in vxi model, just some features are added in zxi. If you can afford zxi model, please go for it else vxi is also best, do you know why? Because you are going for Ritz. All its versions are best. Interiors & power is excellent in the class and power is better when compared to other higher range cars. Don't worry for version, just be happy as you are going to own the best car of India.

    Teamadmin |08 Feb,2011 07:30:31 PM

    You can go for ZXI. Driver seat height adjustment tilt steering is very good option for the people like 5'-6' height. Also rear defoggers and wipers steering mounted Audio controls are very good who wants to enjoy the music while driving. That is more value for money. I own VXI and i am missing these features.

    Amit |11 Feb,2011 02:47:20 PM

    Hi Rupa, I am proud owner of Ritz ZXI and would suggest you to go for it. The added features of zxi are worth the extra premium over vxi. Wether Vxi or Zxi i must agree that i am in luv with my Ritz. Its too good a car for the price. Just go ahead and be a proud owner just like me.

    Certainly, I bought a ritz on 10.10.10 after testing figo and i10. I must say Figo is a good car in terms of space but it's brand value and sluggish engine was disappointed me. After driving I10, I am still puzzled why people are buying a rubbish piece of engineering of Hyundai? Ritz is extremely on our type of road surface, thanks to it's suspension. Zippy performance with good fuel efficiency, thanks to K12 series engine. Giving feel of a SUV, thanks to it's tall boy design and large wind shield. Only thing which keep few people away from Ritz is it's unique look, but 'I am lovi'n it'. Stand tall, go zippy and look different is your perspective then definitely don't look further Ritz is for you. I am lovi'n it. Cheers

    Must say a very good review. Myself bought a Ritz VDI two months back, quite amazed by the Mileage (18-19km/lt in city and 20-21km/lt in highway)and Power simultaneously.

  • Ridhit |09 Feb,2011 03:06:51 PM

    Hi I own a Ritz Zxi and its a masterpiece. It zooms ahead of its competition in all fronts be it looks, power or mileage. It is a little monster.

  • Santosh K.R. |10 Feb,2011 11:37:18 AM

    I have recently purchased on Ritz. It is very comfortable one. Those who wants to ride with enjoyment can select this one.

  • sree krishnan |17 Feb,2011 03:32:00 PM

    Buddy, your comments on mileage and performance holds good with Ritz, but not with the interiors, plastics used inside and comfortable seating.

  • ravikumar |17 Feb,2011 09:33:22 PM

  • Jayakumar |08 Mar,2012 10:53:07 AM

    I have purchased Ritz VDI 6 months back. I clocked 6000 km so far. My honest opinion is it is better than newly launched swift 2011 in comfortwise and it is having the same engine. who said it is not stable on highways? I touched 150 km/hr Still I felt i had good control of the car. full space and height more light comes inside. unlike the swift its dual tone grey finish. I have not tested how much mielege it gives. I have given for 2nd service. After I will let you know. Just for the name sake and outer looks people are crazy behind the swift. I think so. thanks

  • amit |12 Apr,2013 01:52:41 PM

    Hi Guys, Damn confused about buying a car, however I hope after reading above comments someone may help me, I selected two cars for me, RITZ vxi and Honda Amaze EX i VTEC, please don't want to discuss about price. It would my first car. So please suggest with I should go for. AMAZE or RITZ

    Deepak |13 Nov,2013 04:12:09 PM

    Amit, Maruti Ritz Vxi - Maruti Ritz has proven record and awarded engine. Performance wise Ritz is best. Comfort is really good compared to swift. leg room and knee room is perfect. Ground clearance is the best. Service cost and service availability is totally painless :), easy to handle, people with 6.5 Ft can also ride with comfort. I feel its perfect vehicle for beginner. Honda Amaze - New entrant, Service cost, service availability and parts cost is main concern. Back seat knee room is more than Ritz. Boot space is more. I believe if you like small cars and the shape of Ritz then go for it. New Ritz is perfect vehicle on Indian road. but if you are looking for big car, large boot space you can think of Honda Amaze. regards Deepak
