The all-new Honda Amaze has gained quite a good momentum on the sales chart. It has become the best-selling car of the brand and has become quite common on the roads too. An adventure-loving owner of a new Honda Amaze took the vehicle to the treacherous Spiti Valley and here are the stunning pictures.
The Spiti Valley in Himachal Pradesh is one of the most dangerous roads in the country. The roads require a capable vehicle and a careful driver too. The red-coloured Honda Amaze reached the Spiti Valley and crossed the Kunzum Pass too. The Honda Amaze takes on the likes of Maruti Suzuki Dzire and the Hyundai Xcent in the segment.
The all-new Honda Amaze is based on an all-new platform, and is offered with a long list of variants. The car is powered by both petrol and diesel engine options. There is a 1.2-litre petrol engine that churns out a maximum power of 90 PS and a peak torque of 110 Nm.
There is a 1.5-litre diesel engine that offers a maximum power of 100 PS and 200 Nm of peak torque. Both the engine options are available with an automatic transmission. In fact, the Honda Amaze is the only affordable vehicle in India that comes with a CVT automatic transmission with the diesel engine. The CVT variants have the diesel engine detuned to 80 Bhp-160 Nm.
The second-generation Honda Amaze gets 170 mm of ground clearance, which is 5 mm higher than the outgoing model. The ground clearance is essential while doing such rough roads. The interiors of the new Amaze are quite loaded with features too. The vehicle gets a new DigiPad 2.0 infotainment system, cruise control and keyless entry with start/stop button.
Honda also offers an unmatched 3-year unlimited kilometre warranty that can be extended to the 4th and 5th years. It is the highest warranty offered by any manufacturer in the segment. The Honda Amaze starts from Rs. 5.81 lakhs, ex-showroom, which is about Rs. 20,000 more expensive than the best-selling car in India – the Maruti Dzire. The Amaze is now India’s second best-selling sedan, selling nearly 10,000 copies each month. Also, the car is Honda’s fastest-selling model ever.
