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.
