Smooth Junior SUV in City and Highway
Hi Friends, We had bought Ritz ZDI in July-13 and crossed 1500 Km in one month and I am sharing my experience. We had Alto K10 previously and due to my everyday 80Km running We had to opt for a diesel engine. As we were using Maruti and fully satisfied with K10 it was my default decision to upgrade to Diesel for Brand Maruti. Before buying Ritz many vehicle came in mind but the exchange offer was in my mind.First choice was swift as it is a hot cake selling product even till now. So we kept our mind on Swift but suddenly as we went to showroom for enquiring swift we had a glance of Ritz Zdi beside the Swift Vdi as both were ready for delivery in acer motors in Hyderabad. As we already knew that swift and ritz are of same fiat engine and successful in market we thought to give a look on new Ritz Zdi also as it was looking more handsome from front due to its grill change in front and we liked the new grill look. But that was not enough. I and my wife thought to go on more micro level comparison.
First we had a test drive and things liked and disliked after comparison of both cars 1) Swift sitting position was the same like k10 which we felt but Ritz was very clearly visible 2) Swift was not that spacious as compared to Ritz 3) Riding quality of both was same and good, swift was more smooth than Ritz(but you cannot judge on only riding because we were looking to buy car of our reviewers recommend us looking to our family needs) As Ritz Zdi has driver seat and steering adjustment if you increase its seating position you feel like you are riding a junior Innova 4)Ritz boot space back seat and even front seat more spacious than swift 5) Ritz gear was on higher level easy for changing gears 6) Exterior we liked ritz front but back still not satisfied due to its bulky in back bumper, on exterior front swift is the best compared to any car in these segment 7)As our requirement was mainly of interior space, fiat diesel engine and decent looks and even around Rs 1 lakh lesser than swift Zdi we selected Ritz Zdi and even got good exchange for our current K10 Alto model through acer motors at good price.
One good thing is after shifting from petrol to diesel model there was no huge difference in riding quality and we were very happy with it and our family was very happy looking into its interior seating and comfortable riding even when you cross 90KM/hr because in alto k10 if you cross 80k is starts to show its signs due to it small engine We bought ritz top end version because our old vehicle was Alto k10 lxi model and we had to spend extra for other fitting as it was basic model. so this time we decided to buy top end model as it comes with every fitting and there is no need to spend any more penny from our pocket except for seat covers, and we are now very much satisfied as our family and even friends who were opposing for ritz first instead of swift are now satisfied because ritz zdi is the model were maruti has done many changes in looks and even in interior and the colour is superior white which has to be maintained regularly but it looks very good so we went for it Long Drive Completed 7500 Km after 6 months. Went to Bangalore in Dec-13 and covered 1250 Km drive to and fro in 3 days. Highway drive was awesome with family. Touched max 160 km for few minutes were roads was empty. Maintained 100 to 130 Km/Hr during Hyd-Bangalore highway ride. Average @17/km with Ac, had been better if I were below 100km speed. Done 2nd Highway drive to Bhilai from Hyderabad in Aug and maintained 90-100 speed with family.It was a smooth drive experience except 2hrs bad road patch near maharashtra border Crossed 17000Km will update more.
