Honda has launched the second generation Amaze in India at introductory price of Rs 5.59 lakhs (All-India ex-showroom). Unveiled at the 2018 Auto Expo, this second generation Amaze is available in 12 variants, 6 colour options and with both petrol and diesel automatic options. We have already driven the car and you can read the review here or even watch our video at the bottom of this story.
This second generation Amaze gets a revised design in terms of a new face which is now in line with the likes of the latest generation Civic and Accord sedans. In profile, the bigger hood give the cars a more defined shape as compared to its predecessor while at the rear there are new tail lamps to add to the looks.
Inside, the Amaze’s cabin has now been copied from the likes of the Jazz, BR-V and the City. The top-of-the-line VX variants get climate control, touchscreen infotainment system, steering mounted audio control, all four power windows, driver’s seat height adjustment, rear arm rest and a boot space of 420-litres. All variants of the Amaze get dual front airbags and ABS with EBD.
For the first time, the Amaze will be offered with a diesel CVT option. This is the same 1.5-litre four-cylinder unit from the previous car that produces 100bhp/200Nm in the MT variants and 80bhp/160Nm in the CVT powered models. The Amaze’s petrol models get the 1.2-litre four-cylinder unit producing 87bhp/109Nm and is offered with a five-speed manual or a CVT.
The Amaze is Honda’s rival for the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Ford Aspire, Volkswagen Ameo and the Hyundai Xcent.
