Nimesh, a fault in there.

The Ritz doesn't have a KB series engine.

It is the KM series engine as I know.

And WTH??

No A/C on LXi/LDi???

No Steering mounts on ZXi/ZDi???

Very good info. Nimesh' date=' keep it up!

?

@Ikon, this wasn't necessary.
[/quote'] This was necessary, because as i gone through forum rules, its mentioned there to always mention the original source of article/news. Back to Ritz topic, I'm too surprised to see that theres no A/C for base model! smiley3.gif

I think the feature list is very good. I've also heard that despite smaller wheelbase, Ritz is likely to have more legroom at the rear which is why the tiny boot.

Does seem like a runaway success and a potential i10 killer

I think it sits on a 15'' wheels and not 14'' check it out . The wheel base is smaller than swift but is more spacious than it .Its like a grown up wagonR .

Well Vxi seems loaded very well, this is surely gonna affects Swift's sales and may be Astar's too..But then MSIL's strategy to create competition against their own products works very well everytime..

lets see how maruti is gonna price the ritz...their are some people who are saying that it will be priced in between a star and the swift and some say that it will be priced at par with swift...but ritz ddis is going to be a winner.

fiat might be jealous of maruti suzuki coz the sales generated by swift due to the engine of fiat...

if maruti does decide that the ritz will compete against the i20, then it would be their first major mistake in their history of pricing strategies! I firmly do not think that ritz will be priced as high as the i20..it should be in between a-star and swift or on par with the swift.

Ritz can be campared with i20 engine wise and also feature wise i10 is quite smaller than ritz.

What Wagon R was lacking, fulfills Ritz here. I will change my Wagon R as soon as ritz will offered in Auto Gears.

I had seen Ritz in Italy and fell in love instantely because of its wide body tall car.
