I do not understand Maruti’s strategy. They already have tons of cars in the price range of 2-5 lakhs. Way too many models ranging from Maruti 800 and Alto to Maruti A-Star to Maruti Swift.
Now, they are launching Maruti Suzuki Ritz. Yet another model in the price range of A-Star and Swift. And it would be available in both petrol and diesel. It is likely to use the same diesel engine as of Swift and DZiRE. Petrol engine is of course brand new.
Let’s hope customers are smart enough to pick the right model for themselves. The automobile market in India has gone insane. Sadly, there is no decent buy in the Rs. 5-8 lakh segment.
