Review of Maruti Ritz

Overview

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.

Interior

 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 seats aren’t placed low, Ergonomics are spot on – for example the higher placed gear lever just falls into your left hand so easily! Like the A-Star, higher trim levels get an external tachometer which in this case sits on the left side of the single pod speedometer console. 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.

  • Tank Range

  • What we like

     Diesel is efficient

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.

Comfort and Suspension

  • 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. It’s amazing how much an extra couple of inches of height boost your confidence. Sitting in the Ritz’s lofty seat

  • 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.

  • Rear Suspension

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

  • What we like

     Improved suspension

  • What we dislike

     Still a bit bouncy 

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.

Engine Performance

  • Acceleration

    The acceleration of any car is mainly dependent on the power, torque and transmission gearbox of the car. The pickup and acceleration of a car is very much essential and one cannot ignore its importance Maruti Ritz crosses the barrier of 100 Kms in just 14.71 seconds and reaches top speed of 156kmph.

  • Top Speed

    Ritz has a top speed of about 170kmph.

  • In Gear Acceleration

  • Torque

    NM of torque is produced at 2000rpm in the Ritz

  • What we like

     Diesel improved, no petrol

  • What we dislike

     Refinement could be better

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.

Brakes and Wheels

  • Handling

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