According to a report by GaadiWaadi.com, Maruti Suzuki India has stopped production of Ritz hatchback. Maruti Suzuki has stopped producing the Ritz hatchback from local manufacturing facilities as demands for recently launched products like Baleno premium hatchback, Vitara Brezza subcompact SUV and Ciaz mid-size sedan have increased. However, the leading car maker in the country could re-introduce the Ritz with a Tour badge especially for Taxi market in a similar fashion to the Dzire Tour.
The Ritz Tour could be moved from regular dealerships to newly arranged commercial sales outlets as Maruti Suzuki plans to retail around five products from those showrooms in the next two to three years. It could be accompanied by Eeco Flexi and Omni Flexi as the maximum potential of the entry-level vehicles are taken to full use. The production of Ritz was reduced when the Baleno came into the picture itself.
Maruti is currently offering the nimble hatchback in the base Lxi and Ldi trims as opposed to Zxi, Ldi, Vdi and Zdi variants previously. Mainly used for taxi purposes, the entry-level Lxi is priced at Rs. 4.31 lakh and Ldi at Rs.5.51 lakh (both prices, ex-showroom Delhi). The six colour schemes in which the Ritz has been made available are Superior White, Bakers Chocolate, Silky Silver, Mystique Red, Breeze Blue and Granite Grey.
