New Maruti Ritz

The facelift of the Maruti Ritz was expected in the month of September but might see a little delay due to the Manesar chaos. The estimated price range of the hatch is same as the outgoing model and is expected to lie between Rs 400,000 - Rs 500,000.

The facelift has led to a few changes at the front end whereas the rear end has more or less been left the same.

One major change up front has been the grille, now there is one big trapezoidal grille in the front with a little change in the placement and angle of the fog lamps giving it a little chic look.

Under the hood there aren't going to be major changes but the 1.2-litre K-Series engine will be joint with the VVT technology which will translate into a better and enhanced performance of the Maruti Ritz.

Whatever said and done, Maruti will be sending in the market a winner of a car because they know how to satisfy the needs of the Indian audience; mileage, affordable price and compact size.

There isn't a 'oomph' factor in terms of looks but there one can say 'not bad' looking at it.

In fact we can rightly use the word decent, sporty and smart for the car.

From what has been known about the car yet, one highlight for the Sail hatchback will be its space.

The car will be powered by a 1.2-litre S-TEC engine whereas the diesel will be the 1.3-litre MultiJet drivetrain which has been long awaited.

If rumours are to be believed then the car will be loaded with safety features, latest technologies along with modish and chic interiors.
