I did test drive all the three machines last week. Just to have a better idea on what to pick as my friend was looking for a car.
Pros : Handling, Stability, Ride, Comfort, Style, Features
Cons : Power, FE, A.S.S, Poor resale, Cost of parts associated with FIAT
* I really did not get justified with the power it has. Although i do not drive at 100 kph or above , the initial surge is something we required, like those on the 1.6L engines of FIAT.
* And I BELIEVE TATA Authorized Service Stations would be forced to concentrate more on their cars than the FIAT`s which would make these cars least priority. I also do not see all TATA dealers taking care of the FIAT brand, so the service network stays limited that way. I owned a FIAT Palio D until 4 months back so, i know the problems.
Pros : Infact, i liked everything in this car.
Cons : Price, FE
We had to keep away from this because of it price which is largely inflated.
Pros : Stability, Handling and Comfort (ok), style (front), A.S.S., Power ( better than GP ), Tall boy styling, FE.
Cons : Rear style, typical maruthi styled interiors, Space, features.
verdict : we chose the Ritz because of it Pros and as far as its cons where considered we planned to get a very good ICE in with Bluetooth , SW, Component speakers, a Door Glass auto winder, leather upholstery...
And we where also sure that the maintenance costs where going to stay low and availability of spares would stay forever and the resale value would be good.
So, we chose the ritz. And i prefer it all time.
Wel, after 1.8k KM`s he is very happy with the decision and i love driving around here.
* THESE ARE JUST MY PERSONAL OPINIONS.
