Maruti Suzuki Ritz Review

Summary

The Ritz is one of the most practical Maruti Suzuki cars in India. The hatchback received minor exterior and interior updates in 2012, when this tall-boy received new front grille, headlights, body side-moulding, prominent rear wheel arch and a rear spoiler. The interior is up-market in terms of plastic quality and features. Seats are very supportive, and offer ample legroom for front passengers, though the rear seat is little congested.  Powering the hatchback are the same engine options - a 1.2-litre K-Series petrol and a 1.3-litre Multijet diesel engines - that do duty on other Maruti Suzuki car models in India as well including Swift and Swift Dzire.

Both the powertrains are coupled with a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the petrol trim also gets a 4-speed automatic transmission.

Further to this, read Maruti Suzuki Ritz Road Test details by our expert.

Exterior

The hatchback, based on the old Swift’s platform, has tall and compact design that looks very odd, especially the rear styling. The car was updated in 2012 when it received new front grille and headlights. Though, the side profile remained largely unchanged. The 14-inches 185/70 R14 tyres are borrowed from the Swift. It also gets a rear spoiler.

Interior

The car is very spacious from inside. It has generous legroom and headroom, though, the rear seat is little congested. Seats are supportive and feel comfortable. The dual-tone interior looks good, while the huge glass area and increased ride height provide better visibility. Material quality is decent.

Engine Transmission

The Ritz is available in two engine options - a 1.2-litre K-Series petrol and a 1.3-litre Multijet diesel. The 1197cc gasoline motor churns out a maximum power of 85.80bhp at 6000rpm with a torque of 114Nm at 4000rpm. The 1248cc, oil-burner develops a maximum power output of 73.97bhp at 4000rpm with a torque of 190Nm at 2000rpm. Both the engines are paired with a 5-speed manual transmission. A 4-speed automatic gearbox is also available with petrol variant. The overall fuel economy of the hatchback has been increased by 10% that makes it one of the fuel efficient Maruti Suzuki cars in India. The petrol-engined manual version delivers a mileage of 14.7kmpl in city and 18.5kmpl on highways, while the automatic variant offers 13kmpl in regular city traffic and 17.16kmpl on freeways. The diesel models returns a fuel efficiency of 18.6kmpl and 23.2kmpl on urban roads and highways, respectively. The petrol variants are capable to achieve 0-100kmph in 13.3 seconds with a top speed of 175kmpl, while the diesel takes 14.2 seconds with a top speed of 155kmph.

Performance and Handling

The ride of the Ritz is pretty alright on city roads, but the car drives superb on highways. Engine is frugal and responsive. Handling is good, but isn’t sporty. Driving dynamics could have been better.

Braking System

The front ventilated disc brakes and rear drum brakes are sturdy, and perform well. The braking capabilities are further enhanced by ABS and agile front McPherson strut & rear torsion beam suspension system. 

Mileage

The 1248 cc Diesel - powered variant delivers a fuel economy of 20 kmpl in city and 22 kmpl on highways, while the Petrol variant offers a mileage of 16 kmpl on urban roads and 18 kmpl and freeways, respectively.

Safety features

The hatchback comes loaded with several active and passive safety features such as 3-point ELR seatbelts with a lap belt in the middle, iCATS, front seatbelts, power door locks, shoulder adjuster, dual horn, driver seatbelt reminder, high mount stop lamp, door closure warning lamp and child safety locks. Features like SRS airbags for driver and co-passenger and ABS with EBD are available only on the top-end variant.

Verdict

With decent ride quality and responsive engine, the Maruti Suzuki Ritz is a practical day-to-day driving car. It’s also one of the most fuel efficient Maruti Suzuki cars in India.

Competition

Maruti Suzuki Ritz Vs Honda Brio

Both exterior and interior of the Brio are sportier than the Ritz. Powered with a more frugal and refined engine, the Brio rides effortlessly on rough roads. Unlike other Maruti car models, the Ritz priced higher than its competitors. When it comes to drivability, both the cars are great at that.

Coming to the engine options, the Brio is available with only petrol engine, whereas the Ritz comes in both petrol and diesel models.

Pros

  1. Engine performance
  2. Improved ride quality
  3. Handling and braking power
  4. Well-packed interior
  5. Fuel economy of diesel engine
  6. Maruti’s after sale services

Cons

  1. Rear design
  2. Limited comfort and safety features
  3. Outdated dials
