with you on that one Amit. If this car was streeeeetched about 2 feet longer it might look good. Front 3/4 view looks quite good actually.. better than the Swift. But overall its a bit too much of a Tall-boy.

A very ugly little econobox. I'm sure it will sell well in the Indian auto market.

I would agree with Nurni76, Why no aribags on the Diesel version and ABS is just optional? Why cant they give Diesel fully loaded version since they offering only variant?

Again, thoroughly disappointed not to see ZDi trim. May be there are no takers for it, and Maruti knows this - At least, I know few people who would be glad to pick up Swift Diesel if ZDi trim was available.

I think MUL has higher profit margin in the Dezire ZDi model and so they want customers to go for that model instead of a fully loaded hatchback diesel from their own stable.

Hi friends IMO if people have accepted the swift desire(look at the bookings) then I see no reason that Ritz would be very well accepted in our market.Moreover what all the sources say it's gonna be priced a bit lower than the swift.

The "color options" page has the side-view profile. Too bad they are tiny in size

Don't think it will be much lesser than the Swift.
