We are looking for a diesel hatch, which is loaded with features like ABS, Air-bags,etc. and has a pleasant post-purchase experience. We're gonna buy the car by selling our old one, so Swift was ruled out since they are not providing any exchange offers as it's on waiting. Also, i-20 with all the features cost way too much.

Its been around a month since we're surveying all the cars under our budget and we're slightly confused between two - Ford Figo Diesel Titanium+ and Maruti Ritz Zdi 2013. Both of these cars have got all the features since there has been upgrades in the new Ritz. Although, Figo is around 40-45 k cheaper than Ritz. But on the other hand, Ford is said to have a not so good after-sales performance. We've asked a few figo owners, but they weren't able to tell properly since somebody owns a petrol and that too they bought in 2010-11, Whereas we all know that Maruti rules when it comes to the after sales service.

So considering all the factors like - maintenance, mileage, performance, post-purchase experiences and quality, please suggest which hatchback we should go for.

Considering the overall factors including the features looking for and comparative cost effectiveness, New Ritz is a ideal selection.It features the same Fiat Engine used in Swift,Vista,Chevrolet Sail U-VA etc.Its engine is reliable and features comfortable interiors, overall drive quality is also good.

Go for ritz....i am figo owner, diesel kind.
If u dont have problem with cost and boot space surely go gor top end diesel / petrol ritz

What about Ford Figo? It is said to have a superior ride quality and handling. Also what about the after sales experience?

Frankly , The diff in ride quality is minimal if any at all . + in Ritz you get lots of head room and great visibility .... You will appreciate both in the city traffic that you will get stuck :-)

I own ford figo titanium diesel and it has been almost a year since I bought it. Being a common man or car user, I can vouch impartially for figo as I'm more than satisfied with the performance, gud handling. gud mileage of 17 km/l w/o AC in Delhi, a feel of driver's car it has given me. I dnt knw abt Ritz as I hv n't used it. THE BEST THING WUD BE TO CHECK BOTH AND DECIDE URSELF WHICH ONE 2 GO 4.

Ritz is the best car around. Take TD of both the cars specially on highway and will have no confusion. I had similar confusion and finally opted for Ritz Diesel. Its two year on the roll and the car is amazing.

figo definitely has superb driving comfort as well as superior ride quality,price too is cheaper,at least at the time of buying by fifty k .but after sale services are not only poor but so much costly to the extent of cheating...moreover warranty,when you will need to avail,you will be shocked to know its warranty is farce!...me too is facing.

Go for Ritz VDI or ZDi depending on you budget & you will not regret your decision. I also have Ritz VDi which is my 4th car while all previous 3 were petrol ones. This car is excellent value for money.
