Team Gaadi has caught the new yet to be launched refreshed Maruti Ritz under real-world testing in Gurgaon. The car was spotted on 19th Feb (Sunday) while it was being driven from Delhi to Gurgaon in the evening. What made us follow it was the fact that the rear badges were all covered - it gave us a hint about something being fishy. We caught up with the vehicle at the toll plaza and this is what we saw

1. The rear end was left as such - no alterations
2. The front end is where the changes will be
3. As seen, we think the headlamps will get a makeover - but just sligthly
4. The Ritz gets a new grille
5. The boonet will be slightly re-designed - probably more prominent and muscular lines
6. The car had lot of wires running inside with two small instruments strapped onto the body including the roof
7. This means the car was being tested with altered engines - it will get the more fuel efficient form of DDiS engine seen in the new Swift
8. The KB12 motor will pump out a couple of Bhp more and will be more efficient too (like the new Swift) - it will also get variable valve timing
9. We didnt see the interiors and hence can't say much about the same!
10. Maruti might just re-design the back of the front seat for added knee room for rear passengers
