The two contenders that we are talking about, which fit in the same category, are Maruti Suzuki Ritz and Chevrolet Beat. Both the cars come with youthful contemporary designs and powerful mills. These two are so different, yet so similar, thus it can be confusing to choose one between these two. Maruti Suzuki Ritz and Chevrolet Beat, both are very stylish and unconventional cars that have broken the myth of Indian fondness for subtle design. Maruti Suzuki India, which has carried the ‘big Indian dream’ tag with their budget cars for almost two decades, started being experimental with their cars with Swift and Ritz. Maruti Ritz, which is the Indian avatar of Suzuki Splash, was brought to the Indian roads in 2009. There are diverse perceptions about the looks of this car; some take it as a contemporary excellence while others think that it's disproportional and awkward. But on the whole this is a high selling hatchback car and stands second in its segment in the terms of sale. Maruti Ritz's exteriors are out-of-the-league-different with the front fascia blessed with parted grille and big headlamps with a higher mounted V-shaped bonnet. The rear design is very unusual too and curvy and big boomerang shaped headlights make it different from the other models present in the country. The side profile looks good because of alloy wheels and aerodynamic curves.
