Difference Bewteen New Ritz and Old Ritz

Difference between Old and New Ritz from Maruti Suzuki

Maruti Launches the new Ritz, without any fanfare, whilst it was scheduled for the launch last month, it was postponed to 3/4th of September 2012, even that will not happen now, as the dealer were told to start selling the New Ritz. Even the pricing has been declared.

Maruti we believe has done the most sensible thing by making the arrival of the New Ritz a low key affair. After-all not much has changed, except for a new Diesel Variant ZDI and a Mileage increase. New Ritz offers 23.2 KMPL Vs 21.1 KMPL.

The Biggest change is, that the New Ritz has started looking like the New Swift from the front. The similarity is so uncanny, that at a first glance you will be excused if you were to call it the Swift . We believe with supply constraints on Swift, this might help Ritz to gain more sales numbers, thus ensuring that Maruti does not lose Swift sales to competing brands due to long waiting period on Swift.

The New Ritz is different from old Ritz in following areas:


New Side Moulding

New Aggressive Grill  and Headlamps (Or is it the Swift Grill and headlamps)

New Rear Spoiler


Dual Tone Interiors

Multi Information Display

Improved Lumbar Support in Rear Seat

Electrically Adjustable Outside Rear View Mirror (ORVM)

USB Port

Day and Night Internal Rear View Mirror (IRVM)

The New Ritz does come with a price hike. Given below is variant wise price comparison

As always Maruti has managed pricing quite well. A max increase of Rs.13000 in LDI variant will not pinch the new car buyer too much and will ensure continuation of Ritz's current golden run.

Vitara Brezza ZDiEcoSport 1.5 DV5 MT Titanium Diesel

With the Vitara Brezza, Maruti takes teh sub4 meter battle straight to Ford Ecosport, a compact SUV which since it's launch did not have a worthy competitor. Vitara Brezza is banking on huge fan following of Maruti's badge to make a dent to Ecosport sales. And if Ford action o fcutting prices of its most popular car is any indication, it seems to have ruffled feathers in competing camp. How well Brezza stand up to Ecosport, read and decide. For us the decision is still pending.
