About Maruti Ritz

The Ritz features Maruti's family look. Rear has a boomerang treatment that is unique to say the least. The Ritz shares its engine range with the Swift and is basically a more practical choice. However, boot space is at a premium. The Ritz is for a small family, for its interiors can carry four with ease. Its well appointed, has decent fit and finish and is light on the pocket as well.

Maruti Ritz Overview

Jan 13, 2016 : The production of the Ritz (known as the Splash in Europe) was stopped last year. There was news that Maruti is planning to stop Ritz production in India as the Celerio / Swift / Baleno line up would take care of any likely sales losses. However, the Ritz is still available, although in limited numbers. Speculation was that production of the Ritz would stop by the end of the year, which could also mean financial year - so perhaps by March the company may take a call on it. As of now, the car is still available

Q. How much wider and longer swift is than ritz ?
  • Hasus size sameSub 4 mtr
  • Don't know.
Q. Can anyone tell me at what speed each gear touches 2000 rpm for all gears in the petrol ritz as I don’t have a tachometer. I’m getting poor mileage so I want to try up-shifting at 2000 rpm.
  • As you are aware that there are 5 gears in RITZ all gears will be shifted as per the momentum of vehicle by and large all gears will be shifted less than 2000rpm however if any steep hill comes and you are in between and if you are on 1st gear definitely it crosses 2000rpm as you have to apply more acceleration , further regarding mileage i assure you on highways for RITZ Petrol gives 18 plus with AC , you better travel the final gear between 80 and 100 KMPH AND TRY TO SWITCH OVER TO 4 OR 5 TH GEAR WITH OUT LOSS OF TIME ,definitely it will help in getting more mileage ,check tyres pressure otherwise mileage will fall
  • U can upshift at lower rpm also if its a petrol. Instead of rpm go for speedometer reading.0-10 1 gear, 10-20 2nd,20-30 3rd, next 4th & at 50 , 5th gear. I have an rpm meter i hardly watch it while driving. In any case good driving habits like gentle start gradual acceleration & anticipated braking rather than harsh braking will give u a good mileage. City mileage is 12 for Ritz petrol & highway is 15
  • At 2000 RPM....1st - 20 , 2nd - 38 , 3Rd - 50 , 4th - 65 ,5th - 80kmph To get best mileage drive at 60kmph in 5th gear this will lock the RPM at 1500RPM..And out on highways stay at 80-100 mph for getting best mileage from your Ritz Petrol

    Ritz was a best performance hatchback ... whenever you push hard you will definitely feel the punch of engine ....it is more stable than swift on 140-160 kmph on it's stock tyres ....it giving 20-21 kmpl mileage on the average speed like 90-100kmph but above 100 kmph it will give 16-18 kmpl ...but that's also good mileage. it having nice handling & steering feedback. ritz haven't good ride ..because it's suspension is tunning for stiff ride but that helps in the stability on high speed. i love this car ...the one con of my ritz is.. it doesn't having dual airbags and abs.

    I had a wonderful experience with this car. Initially I took time to get used to the tall boy styling with respect to the front screen visibility but once I got used to it, that was not a problem at all. On the whole a beautiful car, good power, good mileage and absolutely no maintenance problems. Ingress and egress easy because of tall boy design. Handling is excellent, even on the highway, steering is nimble, acceleration is quick.

    10 years with the car . Its is like a family member . Still gives 16kmpl on highway and 14kmpl in city . Fun to drive , comfortable hatchback . Total value for money . Maintenance cost is good but the service stations do shabby work sometimes . But the car still proves to be more reliable than new age Marutis.

    Ritz is a powerful but compact size car with easy maneuverability. I love its performance from 2000 RPM which resembles like a mini sports car. But its little laggy below 2000 RPM. I haven't checked its mileage by tank full method but from MID it show an average of 17-18 kmpl in mixed conditions drive.
