The Ritz, inspite of being a well packaged car, wasnt really setting the sales charts on fire for Maruti. With increasing competition, the only way to make the Ritz a very successful hatchback was to induce new features and changes. Infact, Maruti went a step ahead and gave over 50 changes to the Ritz, the result of which you see on this page. 





Most importantly, the new Ritz comes with the improved version of the FIAT sourced multi-jet unit that also serves the new Swift. This means, that although the max power and torque on paper remain the same, the new Ritz is 10% more efficient, taking its ARAI approved fuel economy figure to 23.2kmpl! As of September 2012, the new Ritz is only offered with a diesel heart and additionally, the company will now sell the Riz diesel in the top end ZDI version too.





Changes have been made externally with redesigned headlamps, bumper and fog lamps. At the rear though, things remain pretty much the same. On the inside, the overall design is same but changes come in the form of a new audio system, driver information display, dual tone interiors etc. Maruti also claims improved rear seat space and comfort.

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.

Maruti Ritz Picture

 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.

Safety

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.

What we like

Easy to drive

What we don't like

Handling not as good as Swift

Handling Braking & Safety Details

Handling

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

Abs

Traction Control

More

Comfort

 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

Comfort & Suspension Details

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.

Ritz Zxi.

By Gopi Ramalingam Posted on 11 Oct 09, 04:18 PM

Pros Great looks. EXCELLENT ENGINE (POWER/MILEAGE/VIBRATION LEVELS), Excellent SPACE, COMFORT.

Cons None, so far

Got RITZ ZXi On 3rd Sep, 2009. Color: Fire Brick Red. Overall, it is an excellent car. Remains stable even at 120kmph (like any other modern hatch). Has lots of space, and 3 ppl can easily fit in the rear seat. The day i got the car and made 3 of my friends sit on the rear seat, one of ma friends said,"i've never sat so comfortably with 2 other ppl in a small car!". Hats off to SUZUKI on this car! It has amazing HEADROOM, and more KNEE ROOM as compared to SWIFT, or any competition. i10 is not to be compared with the RITZ, PLEASE. Ritz gives a power of 85ps, which is amazing. NO NEED of switching to 1st gear AT ALL. LITERALLY. U can start with the second gear! and even if u drive at low rpm, there are NO VIBRATIONS. THE A/C IS SUPERB. I have owned WagonR and ZEN both, but the a/c of RITZ, you need to check it out for yourself. It returned a mileage of overall 15 (i.e CITY as well as HIGHWAY). No doubt, this car is gonna rock, and afterall it is a SUZUKI, a MARUTI SUZUKI. *(i guess that is enough to say it all)

Maruti Ritz long term review

By Sampath Posted on 08 Jun 10, 12:10 PM

Pros great looks , class leading mileage

Cons nothing so far!

Maruti Ritz is the best car in hatchback segment. The exterior has futuristic design and interiors have contemporary colors. There is no problem with the service of Maruti, so you can buy this car. Also after a few years, the resale value of the car is also very good! Hence you can go for it. I am getting a consistent mileage of 18 kmpl on average. The car's superb steering response, velvetty suspension and high ground clearance are very much needed for Indian driving environment. In spite a tall boy model, Ritz is extremely stable at high speeds and there is no vibration whatsoever in the cabin at 3 digit speeds. Ritz is the best hatchback for me!

Maruti Ritz - On a league of its own

By Vijay Posted on 22 Mar 10, 04:38 PM

Pros Very spacious and effortless engine power

Cons Boot space

Ritz is build on the same platform as Swift which is already a block buster. The changes between the 2 are the refinements in the gear shift, the roomy interiors (specifically the rear seats) and the mileage. The RITZ can comfortably seat 5 adults without cramping and there is sufficient head room also. Very comfortable on bumps and city travel. Ideal for a medium size family

Not a good car impractical shape and world wide flop, in europe espeially

By Krishana Bhosale Posted on 06 Mar 10, 10:42 PM

Pros good looks , nothing else

Cons Absurd car , difficult to see the rear, shape is bad, weak body not strong

I am disgusted by this car as very difficult to see the bak and rear as the rear windshield is small and boot space is less than santro, moreover it's design is not good , my wife drives this car but i settle for the fiat punto, more terrific value for the money and more stylish maruti suzuki is launching impractical vehicles in india.not good aircon and difficult to see the front , choie is yours but my verdict is say no to this car as it is wastage of your 4 or 5 lakh rupees , if you want worth of your money buy punto since the punto is much more safe cars. i bought the punto only but my wife is regretting for the same as she drives ritz, so choice is yours

Great piece of work by Maruti-Suzuki

By Krish Hemdev Posted on 25 Oct 10, 01:01 PM

Pros Great Look, Comfortable, Big looking car

Cons Delivery period of more than 6-8 weeks

Guys, I received my RITZ VXI Baker's chocolate recently after waiting of almost 2 months. Its owesome car. Its very spacious with good head room. Enough room for three persons in the back seat, which I didnot find in any other car in this segment except Indica. I dont like white,silver and Blue colour in this model. However, Chocolate and Grey looks great on road. If you want to choose colour, don't go by catalogue. Just see the actual car on road or real pictures. For fuel economy, I have to wait for some more time, till I drive enough. Overall, I am more than Happy owner of RITZ.
