  1. Planned to buy polo 1.2 L petrol

    Hello Jibin R Babu If u Want a Car with Power mileage comfort good look..... Then Ritz ZXi may be a CaR for u.. POWER: it has got its heart beating from the most advanced n most talked of engine of the day. The K-Series 1.2l motor which generates a handsome power of 85bhp which comes out to be adequate in the city as well as on highways. MILEAGE: Now counting on the mileage front- it is being tested n proved to b one of the most efficient car in its segment with an ARAI certified mileage figure of 17.7kmpl. COMFORT: For a family of four its ideally a comfortable car with loads of legroom and headroom. the ergonomically placed gear lever in the dash is awesome as it falls on to Hand. and the top version comes with almost all the features on the list except a few, to name a few is auto a.c. and electronic outside rear view mirrors.rest everything u get in this amazing package. GOOD LOOKS: THIS PART,well not only me but nobody can help you out on this issue. Liking a thing or not is a Personal agenda, as to me this is the most practical design i discovered to have on indian roads becoz of its high seats it gives a commanding view of the road when u acquire the pilot's cockpit. everything falls to hand co comfortably that you will love to be in it again. Despite of its QUERKY Rear Styling, n those beautifully designed so called bomerang shaped tail lamps (to me),i like the car very much and a very much practical alternative to the much successful Swift as ut is based on the latter's platform. n to add to its head over the swift is the recent launch of the new swift which would drop the resale value of the now purchased old model car after some years. I think "The Ritz" has emerged out to be the best city hatchback with all those needs of practicality, comfi n smoothy ride,wide visibility with a commanding view of the road(thanks to the high cabin giving a big car feel as that of Honda CR-V without much compromising on the stability front with the softer set rear suspension),good fuel efficiency and the Amazing New K12M engine,which is internationally acclaimed and awarded best in its class. What i would like to suggest u that go n have a test ride of the Ritz at ur nearest dealer and discover the joy of ride.

  3. BEST CITY HATCHBACK

    Hello every body! I,ultimately going through a tough session of thinking and testing out various choices of mentioned earlier,have decided to go for a Ritz ZXi. I would like to thank you ALL for helping me to settle all my queries about purchasing a new car of this segment well within my budget limits and with all those features which were on the the list as there is Rs.30000 discount is going on the car in my city including Full insurance worth Rs.14120@ Re.1,Maruti Genuine Accessories worth Rs.4800,Maruti 3rd year extended warranty worth Rs.2400 + Rs.10000 exchange bonus on my Previous car. being a Doctor i would also be asking for their special discount that they provide to doctors, engineers, govt employees, teachers etc. which woukd around 2-2.5k. I think "The Ritz" has emerged out to be the best city hatchback with all those needs of practicality, comfi n smoothy ride,wide visibility with a commanding view of the road(thanks to the high cabin giving a big car feel as that of Honda CR-V without much compromising on the stability front with the softer set rear suspension),good fuel efficiency and the Amazing New K12M engine,which is acclaimed and awarded best in its class. One thing that I am curious to know about is that,Is there is any color option for the dashboard on the ZXi variant. All the pics that i have seen on the net and the one i had driven had a blue colored dash but somebody told me that one can get the grey colored dashboard if desired in the ZXi variant. Please let me know about that. n suggest some styling accessories for the Ritz.
  4. BEST CITY HATCHBACK

    Thanks for the Suggestions. Frankly speaking, I didn't liked 'the Fusion' like retro looks of the Ford Figo. It seemed to me as an old car which has been here for several years. I think Ritz will be a good choice......
  5. BEST CITY HATCHBACK

    Hello bluesapphire! I had also td the Chevrolet beat. It's a nice car but it is low on space as compared to the ritz. although the engine is nice.I liked the way it thunders while accelerating it.
  6. BEST CITY HATCHBACK

    Thanks to all for your reviews! I had td Ritz ZXi when it was launched in may 2009.I had driven it in the rush hour traffic noon. I was mesmerised with the way the then all new K12M motor comes to life as soon as foot is pressed on the pedal.And i started to push it harder and tested the stability ,but it handled quite well. While overtaking, the handling was very very precise despite of that tall height and it quite perfectly followed my instructions that i still remember the feel of that brilliantly balanced streering. may be then i realized that why almost all auto enthusiasts are crazy about the swift, with a proper height and the amazing rally based suspension. I liked the car from in and out, especially the quirky(i.e strikingly unconventional) rear section with the signature boomerang shaped tail lamps which look awesome in the dusk and at night. From the front the audicious grille looks quite good.The interiors are found to be much more spacious than the Swift n more practical.the pop-up tacho looks nice. I liked the overall appearance of the car n it appealed to me quite well.
  7. Hello every body. Being a new member of the autocar india forums, i would like to ask my first ever question from all of the members present here. the ques. is as follows: I have a navy blue Maruti 800 dx i.e wtih company fitted a.c.1996 model.the car has done 97000kms in this long time interval and is still fair in condition.the reason is that the daily run is of 15-20kms only. now we are about to replace it with another hatchback of a premium segment. the budget is strictly Rs.5lacs and i have shortlisted a few cars fron a rightfully termed confusing market today which are as follows: Maruti Suzuki Ritz, Maruti Suzuki Swift, Volkswagon Polo hyundai i20. but before deciding one of them, here are some of my queries that iwould like to clear... 1.the first and foremost question is of the heart, the most important organ,should i go for a diesel one or the petrol version, taking in consideration the daily usage. 2.my dad wants a car thats fully loaded with all the necessary features i.e it should not demand any after market jobs such as alloys,tyre upgrades,music system,etc. 3.now coming to family,being of 4, proper comfort is also on my mind with adequate amount of support for all of us. 4.one thing that i'll be greatly stressing is the stress free ownership of a car as was my previous one which with god's grace didn't troubled me ever,except some minor mechanical faults.So a car which needs low maintainance is on the cards,suggest one the above. 5.I live in ludhiana (Punjab), one of the busiest city in India. Being an industrial city,there is lot of traffic with huge amount of emigrant population from U.P. and Bihar.Hence there is havoc on roads for the whole day. So the you'll all suggest must give a good and commanding view of road so that it is easy to drive it in city traffic. 6.And last but not the least is good fuel efficiency, which is the need of the day. Hope i'll get inspiring answers to all my questions from all of you. AND I WOULD BE ABLE TO BUY THE BEST CAR THAT MY MONEY CAN GET FOR ME ACCORDING TO MY NEEDS AND ULTIMATELY PROVE TO BE A SENSIBLE DEAL.
