Default owned and driven for the last 1 month:Ritz Ldi DDIS

fantastic car,very roomy and good pickup,milage is phenomenal,i get an average of 19to 20km per litre of diesel,with the a/c on.Bad roads are not a problem because of the 17 inch tyres,suspensions are good for a compact.The boot is big enough and more luggage can be loaded once the seats are folded,the odd part is its backside but i guess it will take some time for the futuristic shape to look pretty just like the odd shape of the swift and innova!!,There are some rattling sounds from B pillars on rough roads,but apart from that the car is well insulated and interiors are great,seats are very comfy and has enough thigh support and the last but not the least the fanatastic aftersales service including the number of service centres.Iam from a small village in Kerala and Maruti is the best option as all other manufacturers have only a handful of service centres and all based in the big cities of Kerala.Overall a good package and sure winner from Maruti

Congrats Doc! The rattles are a real menace with MUL vehicles. Get some good ICE
That should take care of the rattles if the A.S.S guys can't. 20 kmpl is quite good for a one monther. Please update with the mileage after the first service and after that. Big or small villiage, Ritz is a good choice sir.
I know you are new here, but we appreciate pictures, and a lot of them, from different angles and of the interiors. And since its a Ritz, its ok if you don't post the rear profile picture.
Congrats again and ride safe.

Nope they don't. They come with 13" or 14". Doc must have got confused with the Captiva and the Ritz.

Hey, speak for yourself!
I love the gorgeous rear of the Ritz. It's a car that stands out from the bland look-alikes of the others. The tail-lights are fabulous. Design to the fore!

Congrats drjoepaulp

Have you adjusted to the tachometer jutting out seperately. Couldn't digest the dashboard with the tachometer standing out.

Do post some pictures of your car.

Cheers
