Hello Shaman,

As of now the facelift version has only come in Ritz Diesel, we are soon expecting Ritz Petrol also to get facelift

In terms of Car Heart i.e Engine - Both cars have similar 1.2 Lit K Series Engine with same power and torque.
Difference lies in body structure, dimensions, cabin and boot space in Interiors

If you see the looks of Swift - it has more aerodynamics attached to it against Ritz. Swift also gives a sporty feel against Maruti Ritz which rather has a tall boy design and is more a preference who seeks taller looks. If you compare dimensions of both cars -

Maruti Swift dimensions are :- Length mm - 3850, Width mm - 1695, Height mm - 1530, Ground Clearance mm - 170, Boot Space - 205 Lit, Wheelbase - 2430mm
Maruti Ritz dimensions are :- Length mm - 3715, Width mm - 1680, Height mm - 1620, Ground Clearance mm - 170, Boot Space - 236 Lit, Wheelbase - 2360mm

If you see above - Swift has slight better shoulder room and much better leg room space against Maruti Ritz.
With the facelift version launched - the mileage in Diesel Ritz is also better off on at par with Swift at 23.2 Kmpl, We expect with facelift Ritz Engine also to be tuned to deliver same fuel efficiency as in Swift Petrol.

Taking cues from Diesel Rirz - The interiors of Ritz are revamped having dual red color dash with stylish headlamps. Also rear seats are been made bit recline in facelift model against upright seats in previous Ritz giving comfort to passengers. The features are almost common in both models in there counterpart variants.

So our recommendation is - if you are small family of 2 people with a kid and looking for a good car but in value packed budget deal, you can go for Ritz. Even it has practical Boot Space as against Compact Boot in Swift

Else, if style and want to make a statement with Sporty & Aerodynamics and care to spend an extra sum for it- swift is definitely a pick.

To Also add on :- Ritz Zxi with ABS, Dual Airbags, Alloy Wheels, CD Player Music System is available post discounts at almost same price at which Swift Vxi comes and which lacks above features. Having - Same Mechanical Engine - yes Ritz Zxi looks better value.

Also,

- Ritz has more color options in New Facelift Model in Diesel Version

- Ritz Zdi is priced at 6.23 Lacs - above 6 Lakh
Swift Vdi at 5.98 Lacs & Zdi at 6.76 Lakh

Ideally - Ritz Zdi top end model should be priced as similar to Swift Vdi within + - 5000 by Maruti Suzuki to really ramp up the sales of Ritz.

Hi Shashi,

Wheelbase is like the distance between the center of front tyres to center of rear tyres
It almost measures the legroom space in the cabin

A car with bigger wheelbase also provides :-
a) Better control to driver
b) Lesser jolt to passengers of the car in event of a pothole or any road bumps
c) Less Fatigue to passengers on a longer trip

@ Sharath

In terms of Color Choice:-
Both are good choices and offer
> Scratches are less visible in both of them
> Remain cooler in hot climate.

White is a High Maintenance Color . Any Dirt - will be more visible on White. Also - if you stay in Location where there are dense fogs - then a Car with White color is not as visible on roads at time of fog as against Silver car while driving - it marginally enhances a probability of risk as against Silver Color Car.

In Term of Car Factor - Ritz & Wagon R due to body side moulding in Black Color - personally doe not appeal much in White. A Metallic Color like Silver rather suits it better.

On overall note - Silver would be the pick.
