Editorial Test Drive Review of Maruti Ritz

UPDATED: Read the review of the new look Ritz Automatic (click)

 Known as the Suzuki Splash in the international market, Maruti launched this tall boy mid-sized hatchback in the Indian market in May 2009. In 2012 it has been given a face-lift with new features and design tweaks plus only a diesel is offered. The Ritz surely has a good road presence and the front end is dominated by a pair of big, vertically positioned headlamps and a new front design. Other changes include a signature front smiling grille embossed with Suzuki logo, new headlamp, rear spoiler. You get choice of three new colours- Mystique Red, Granite Grey & Breeze Blue. Being a tall boy offering, there is no dearth of headroom in the Ritz. Infact, the first thing that strikes you, before even sitting in the car, is the ease of getting in. The speedometer console in itself looks great, especially once it gets dark on the outside. While the front two passengers can end up being very comfortable, space at the rear can be tight if you have two tall people sitting on the front seats. Changes to the new Ritz include red dual tone interiors, multi-information display in Instrument Panel- including fuel efficiency, new Audio with USB, electrically adjustable ORVM and Day & Night IRVM.  Like is the case with the Swift and Dzire, the Ritz also uses the same FIAT derived multi-jet unit that displaces 1248cc and puts out 75PS of power with 190Nm of torque. . It also has a respectable ARAI rated economy of 23.2kmpl. The NVH levels of the diesel version are good and the engine is pretty smooth and silent for a diesel unit. It is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. There is also a petrol engine which is also available with an automatic option. The mileage of the automatic is 17.6 kmpl. When it comes to suspension, the high seating position and a relatively light steering makes the Ritz easy to drive in traffic. It isn’t as agile as the Swift Low speed ride on the lower variants is good due to their tall tyre walls though on the ZXI, the undulations, especially sharp ones, are easily transmitted into the cabin. High speed stability is pretty impressive and the Ritz feels at home at triple digit highway speeds.The Maruti Ritz diesel  has a starting price of Rs 5.3 lakh. A new variant is the fullyloaded ZDi which is priced at Rs 6.3 lakh ex-showrrom.  Recently Maruti also added the Ritz automatic to the line-up which is only available with a petrol Ritz. and has a four speed automatic gearbox. The new Ritz is a sporty yet practical small car. For a detailed analysis read below.

Pros

Maruti Ritz Exteriors

 The Ritz surely has a good road presence and the front end is dominated by a pair of big, vertically positioned headlamps and a new front design. Other changes include a signature front smiling grille embossed with Suzuki signia, stylish headlamp, sporty rear spoiler, elegant Body Side moulding and three new colours- Mystique Red, Granite Grey & Breeze Blue.

 
 The bonnet itself is short and raised which gives the Ritz a hint of sportiness. The roofline’s curvature dips down sharply after reaching its peak, further adding to the sportiness to the tall overtures of the car.


What we like

 New grille looks good


What we don't like

 Basic shape is same

Maruti Ritz Front design

The carís exterior look is very sporty and attracts lot many people in just a single glance. Ritz is a very smart and classy car that posses very dynamic and robust look. The car is surely a head turner

Maruti Ritz Rear design

Rear visibility is a bit of an issue with the Ritz. The carís styling; itís the oddly angled rear doors and pillars which support those gorgeous-looking boomerang tail-lights that create the massive blind spot.

Maruti Ritz Side profile

the roof line that flows in an arc to combine with the vertical rear window of the Maruti Ritz and conveys a sense of lively movement with stability at high speed

Maruti Ritz Ground Clearance

The ground clearance of 170 mm in the Ritz is pretty good.

Maruti Ritz Bumpers

Ritz has body coloured bumpers attached to the car.

Maruti Ritz Head lamps

The headlamps looks beautiful and provides good illumination in the dark

Maruti Ritz Tail lamps

Ritz has gorgeous-looking boomerang tail-lights

Maruti Ritz Fog lamps

Maruti Ritz Comfort & Suspension

 When it comes to suspension, the high seating position and a relatively light steering makes the Ritz easy to drive in traffic.  Low speed ride on the lower variants is good due to their tall tyre walls, the undulations, especially sharp ones, are easily transmitted into the cabin. 

High speed stability is pretty impressive and the Ritz feels at home at triple digit highway speeds.

What we like

 Improved suspension


What we don't like

 Still a bit bouncy 


Maruti Ritz Comfort

The cabin is remarkably airy thanks to large windows. The seats too are more comfortable than the interior space suggests, thanks to an upright seating position and loads of headroom. The generous and comfortable front seats with a high seating position translate to hours of stress-free city travel. Itís amazing how much an extra couple of inches of height boost your confidence. Sitting in the Ritzís lofty seat

Maruti Ritz Front suspension

The best bit really is the suspension set-up which is softened for low-speed trundling over uneven roads. Ritz uses McPherson struts and coil spring at the front.

Maruti Ritz Rear suspension

Ritz uses torsion coil and beam spring at the rear. The Ritzís soft suspension, which is its greatest asset in the city, becomes a weakness on the highway.

Maruti Ritz Engine & Performance

 On the Ritz there is only a diesel option .  Like is the case with the Swift and Dzire, the Ritz also uses the same FIAT derived multi-jet unit that displaces 1248cc and puts out 75PS of power with 190Nm of torque. .  The NVH levels of the diesel version are good and the engine is pretty smooth and silent for a diesel unit. It is mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox. The auto Ritz comes in petrol only and has a 4-speed automatic gearbox.


What we like

 Diesel improved, no petrol


What we don't like

 Refinement could be better

Maruti Ritz Handling Braking & Safety

 When it comes to suspension, the high seating position and a relatively light steering makes the Ritz easy to drive in traffic.

Steering feedback is good though and its light but direct.

I have been using the car ( Ritz ZXI) for more than three years. It is a spacious car. Performance is good,
technologically also fairly well advanced. This is my fourth Maruti vehicle. Reply to this post

hi everyone, I am planning for Ritz LDi, I have read that Ritz is successful in Diesel variants only, I am not sure my
monthly run would be enough to recover the cost of Diesel vehicle (costing me around 6.15 Lacs on road, navi Mumbai).
will it be a wise Reply to this post
