Maruti Suzuki Ritz automatic launch price Rs 6.15 lakhs

Maruti Suzuki Ritz automatic now available at Rs 6.15 lakhsThe much awaited Maruti Suzuki Ritz AT will be launched next month with a price of Rs.6.15 lakhs (ex-showroom Delhi). The Ritz automatic is here to help daily commuters in heavy traffic, Ritz automatic was announced, around the same time when Honda Brio AT was introduced. The Brio AT was launched back in October 2012 and is available at a price of Rs 5.74 lakhs.

Automatic variants are now becoming more of a necessity with many manufacturers jumping into the fray. The new Maruti Suzuki Ritz automatic variant will possess the same 1.2 liter K12M motor producing 87 PS power at 6000 rpm and will be mated to a four speed automatic gearbox, instead of the 5 speed MT.

ARAI certified fuel efficiency of the new Ritz Automatic is to stand at 17.16 kmpl, which is a marginal decrease over the 18.5 kmpl of the manual gearbox version. However Maruti Suzuki has given the Ritz AT as many as 52 changes so as to make this hatchback more appealing to customers.

Ritz AT will initially only be available with a petrol engine as of now. This is the same engine that is also seen in other Maruti Suzuki car’s like A Star and Dzire. The engine offers 83 bhp and 114 Nm torque making it an ideal city vehicle even in severe traffic conditions. The Ritz AT will compete with Hyundai i10 AT and Honda Brio AT while launch is scheduled for January 2013. Scroll down for more information.
