Honda Amaze is a special car for Honda India as it started the brand’s diesel innings in India. Honda is currently working on a facelift of the Amaze and here is what it could look like. Honda is expected to launch the new Amaze in early 2018.
The new Amaze has been codenamed as Honda-2UB and the same has been rendered by ACI. The upcoming Amaze looks sharper and seems to have incorporated the family looks with a single piece grille and the face now looks very much inspired by the elder sibling Honda City.
Just like the Honda City, the new Amaze may also offer the LED headlamps in the top-end variant and may get LED DRLs too. The bumpers are also expected to be redesigned to make the car look sleeker. The wheel arches may also get updated along with new alloys.
The overall shape of the car is expected to remain the same. The upcoming Amaze is an all-new car and will feature all-new interiors as well. An all-new touch-based infotainment system is expected similar to the Honda City. The AC controls might be updated to new touch-sensitive buttons and the clusters are expected to get blue backlit.
The next-generation Honda Amaze will be powered by the same set of engines that power the current Amaze. There will be a 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines. Honda may re-tune the diesel engine to make it smoother and quieter but the power outputs are not expected to change.
Honda will showcase the upcoming Amaze at the 2018 Auto Expo and the launch is expected to happen in the mid-2018. The new Amaze will compete with the likes of all-new DZire, Ford Figo Aspire and the Hyundai Xcent.
