The new Ritz under the hood department will more or less be the same with a little increase in power output due to the 1.2 L K Series engine that will be powering it. This is the engine that is also found on the new Maruti Swift as well. The Fiat sourced 1.3 L multijet engine is expected to do its duty right giving the new Ritz performance and mileage hand in hand. The new Ritz will come with the same 5 speed manual gearbox and expecting an automatic version will be expecting too much from the hatchback.
