Maruti Suzuki has finally made available its all new automatic version of the Ritz hatchback at a price of INR6.15 lakh ex showroom New Delhi.
The new automatic version is powered by a 1.2 litre K12M engine that churns out 87 PS of power at 6000 rpm. The engine is mated to a 4 speed automatic gearbox. According to ARAI, the car will deliver you a mileage of around 17.6 kmpl against 18.5 kmpl delivered by the manual version which is not much of a compromise.

The features include rear and front fog lamp, light off and key off reminder, rear spoiler, engine immobiliser and side body moulding.
It also has an anti lock braking sysytem with electronic brake force distribution and many other new features are in place to protect you in case of an emergency.
The car is also available in 3 new colors, mystique red, breeze blue, and granite grey.
This is fourth automatic vehicle launched by Maruti and is likely to take on the B segment cars like Honda Brio automatic and Hyundai i10 automatic.
The bookings have already been rushed and if you have been planning for a new car this new year Ritz automatic could just be the right choice for you.
