Honda Brio AT vs Maruti Ritz AT

Move into the cabin, and it's very clear both cars come from different schools of thought. The Ritz’s boxy tall-boy shape liberates masses of headroom all across. Both cars have plenty of adjustments available for the driver's seat, and the steering adjusts for rake as well, so it’s easy to find a nice driving position.

The materials used are decent on both cars, but neither score highly for choice of upholstery colour. Maruti’s cabin design team seem to have been too ambitious while using red. We just wish those ambitions were tempered somewhat. We preferred the older Ritz’s calmer blue cabin trim (In ZXi version). The Brio’s beige/brown combo isn’t that great, it has a strong tendency to soil easily. Whatever happened to simply using grey/black?
