Gets reverse parking sensors and several other features.
Maruti’s website indicates that it has relaunched the Ritz Elate limited edition which was available in July this year. Based on the mid VXi/VDi variant, the Elate sees several feature additions on the exterior and interior of the hatchback.
Alloy wheels, which are otherwise available only on the top-end variants, are seen on the Elate edition. The sides of the car get body graphics and door visors.
Inside, Maruti is offering a 2-DIN JVC music system with Bluetooth compatibility and an AUX-in port. Again, a music system is otherwise seen on the ZXi/ZDi, though Bluetooth is not offered on any variant. The seats get a special seat cover with Orange contrasts and a pillow, and a multipurpose bag is to be found at the rear.
Finally, the Elate gets rear parking sensors (a feature that is not offered even on the top-end variants) and floor mats.
The petrol variant of the Ritz Elate edition is powered by a 1.2-liter four-cylinder K-Series engine that makes 87 PS (85.77 bhp) and 114 Nm of torque, and comes paired to a 5-speed manual transmission. Maruti also offers a 4-speed automatic with this engine.
The diesel Ritz gets a 1.3-liter MultiJet that makes 75 PS (73.94 bhp) and 190 Nm of torque and comes with a 5-speed manual transmission.
