Pl find below

In Terms of Drive and Handling
Maruti Ritz K Series Engine with 87 PS Power has better Engine Performance and performs well on low Gear Shift with minimal lag - has good acceleration too.
Toyota Etios Liva Engine Pep comes with 79 PS and 104 NM Torque. Engine Pep and Performance looks relatively lesser - yes not to an enthusiast taste - but Etios Liva has pretty good engine performance in City Traffic and very less need for downshift. Even the car is light in weight - not much of a difference in drive and handling in city - yes highway performance factor - will given an edge to Ritz.

Toyota Etios Liva Plus Points
> Better Space in Cabin - in front and Rear Seats - Relative longer wheelbase offer better rear seat legroom space against Ritz (WB: 2460mm Vs 2360 mm in Ritz)
> Looks more Stylish and composed as Package in Front & Rear Looks as against Maruti Ritz
> Rear Seats again - Smaller Rear Window in Ritz, Compact Rear Seat Legroom, - if you considering Family Car - Etios Liva has a clear edge even with better shoulder room space.

Maruti Ritz Zxi Plus Points
Its given an edge against Etios Liva Petrol Engine - which looks Average to good - nothing exceptional.
> Comes with More Safety Specs as - ABS with EBD, Fog Lights in Front & Rear (Dual Airbags though is standard in both Etios Liva & Ritz Zxi) and Wider Tyres too.
> Has more Set of Features - Alloy Wheels vis a vis Steel Wheel in Liva (size is 14 inch though), 2 Din CD Player System with Steering Mounted Control, Rear Spoiler
> Is Relative Taller Car with Better Visibility Dynamics - has best in segment headroom - if your height is even 6' Plus - still loads of headroom space in Ritz

Common Points
> Maintenance of both Maruti & Toyota are kept at bare minimum. Your average service bill for over next 5 yr / 50,000 kms will range in rs. 4000 - 4500 with both cars.
> Interiors Fit and Finish of both Cars - will rate as average - nothing exceptional - Can be based on individual feel.

To Net off
Now, when you take it upto compare Etios Liva with Ritz Zxi
- In Engine - Ritz Zxi score partially better with major differentiation as highway performance
- Model Features - Ritz Zxi Certainly - Alloys, ABS, Fog Lights
- in cabin and boot space - Etios Liva score better and is relatively more spacious family car
- Interiors - Both Ritz and Etios Liva does not appeals us. Could not find much style. Both cars have very plan interiors to our opinion
- Mileage - Almost similar - negligible difference - can expect around 13 to 14 Kmpl in City and 16 to 17 Kmpl in highway.
- Maintenance - Toyota cars you can expect low maintenance - but Maruti with its vast network has biggest strength of lowest maintenance cars
