All New 2nd Generation Honda Amaze has been a game changer for HCIL achieving exceptional success with over 1 lakh sales in record 13 months translating into 20% higher sales as compared to 1st Gen Amaze that was launched in 2013. The bold styling of Amaze has appealed to lot of SUV intenders and First time buyers. We would like to thank our customers for the confidence & continuous support that has enabled the brand to grow so strongly. To commemorate this success, we are introducing the special “Ace Edition” of Honda Amaze with enhanced sporty and premium look.
The Honda Amaze Ace Edition’s ex-showoroom all-India pricing is as follows: Petrol MT – Rs 7,89,200, Petrol CVT – Rs 8,72,200, Diesel MT – Rs 8,99,200 and Diesel CVT – Rs 9,72,200. As the price list indicates, the Ace edition of the Honda Amaze is offered with 2 engines: a 1.2 liter i-VTEC petrol with 88 Bhp-110 Nm and a 1.5 liter i-DTEC turbocharged diesel engine with 98.6 Bhp-200 Nm (manual)/80 Bhp-160 Nm (CVT automatic). Both engines are offered with manual and CVT automatic gearbox options. The Amaze is the only compact sedan in India to offer a CVT automatic option on diesel trim.
