Maruti Suzuki is all set to launch a mild facelift of the Ritz in the coming few weeks. Praveen Iyer spotted the vehicle, without any camouflage in Delhi recently, which possibly looks like the Maruti Suzuki office. One can see the A-Star, Swift and Ertiga standing right behind. Maruti Suzuki could possibly be preparing the Ritz facelift for its TV shoot as the launch could happen anytime soon. A slight price hike of Rs. 10,000/- is expected on this facelift.
The changes to the front of the Ritz make the vehicle look more aggressive. The hood has been redesigned, while the grille is now slightly bigger. The fog lamp surrounding has been completely re-designed as well, while the bumper too gets a revision in design. The rear seems to have been left almost untouched but Maruti Suzuki can take this opportunity to address crucial issues like reducing the rattles and improving the quality. An automatic version could be offered as well, but this is yet to be confirmed.
There will be no major mechanical changes to the car and the Maruti Suzuki Ritz will continue to draw power from the 1.2-litre K-Series petrol engine and the 1.3-litre Fiat Multijet diesel engine. Both these engines are extremely frugal and offer a good combination of power and economy to the Ritz.
Up – New Ritz, Down – Old Ritz.
