Honda Amaze Review
Honda has updated their sub-four-metre compact sedan three years after its launch in 2013. This midlife upgrade brings the Honda Amaze at par with its competition. The Amaze is basically a sedan version of the Brio, but looks proportionate, unlike few of its competitors. The important bit is that the Amaze refuses to look boring, whether you like the way it looks or not.
The new thick horizontally slatted grille is typical of all new Honda cars. The front bumper has been completely redone and looks sporty with split air dam. The overall body-shell remains the same as the older Amaze and so does the side profile, except for the new design of alloy wheels. The tail lamps have been reworked and give a fresh lease of life to the busy tail design.
The Brio-like dashboard of the older Amaze has been replaced with the more stylish version resembling the Honda City. The black-top dash gets silver accents around the rectangular AC vents along with a brand new centre console. It still misses out on the display screen for the infotainment system but gets a 2-DIN music system with Bluetooth, USB and AUX connectivity. Steering mounted audio controls and automatic climate control are present. The beige interior makes the Amaze look roomy.
The 400-litre boot of the Amaze is largest in the segment – it is quite commendable considering the car is under four-meters in length. The only complaint that we have about the interiors is that the rear seats don’t split or fold. On the safety front, the petrol continues to miss out on ABS for the lower variants unlike the diesel which has ABS and EBD standard. The higher-spec trims get dual front airbags.
The Honda Amaze petrol is powered by refined 1.2-litre i-VTEC producing 88bhp of power and 109Nm of torque, the same unit that powers the Brio, with the ARAI fuel economy of 17.8kmpl. The sub-four metre sedan also gets a CVT automatic petrol variant with an ARAI fuel efficiency of 18.1kmpl. The Honda Amaze diesel sedan is powered by a turbocharged 1.5-litre i-DTEC oil burner that produces 98bhp of power at 3600rpm and 200Nm of torque at 1750rpm of which the latter is completely flat and does not drop until we get near the redline. The diesel versions have an ARAI fuel efficiency of 25.8kmpl.
The Honda Amaze competes with the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, the Hyundai Xcent, the Tata Zest, Volkswagen Ameo and the Ford Aspire compact sedans. The Honda is priced slightly higher as compared to its competition and offers one of the best cabin spaces in its segment along with the most powerful diesel engine.
