Legroom and boot space could be better

Maruti Ritz Front design

The cars 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 cars styling; its 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.

Diesel improved, no petrol
What we don't like
Refinement could be better

Maruti Ritz Diesel 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. Being a tall boy, you do expect body roll around corners and curves but the car surprises you with its behavior. It isn’t as agile as the Swift though. Steering feedback is good though and its light but direct.

What we like
Easy to drive
What we don't like
Handling not as good as Swift

Maruti Ritz Diesel Handling, Braking & Safety Details

Maruti Ritz Handling

The light clutch and easy steering all do their job in making the Ritz a zero-effort car to drive

Maruti Ritz ABS

There is an option for ABS in the car.

Maruti Ritz Traction control

Ritz doesnt have an option of traction control in the car.

Maruti Ritz Diesel 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 suspensio
What we don't like
Still a bit bouncy

Maruti Ritz Diesel Comfort & Suspension Details

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. Its amazing how much an extra couple of inches of height boost your confidence. Sitting in the Ritzs 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 Ritzs soft suspension, which is its greatest asset in the city, becomes a weakness on the highway.
