Honda Amaze is the entry level car from the Japanese manufacturer in Indian market. We currently have the second generation honda Amaze which was launched in 2018. The updated Honda Amaze became popular in the segment because of it’s premium looks and features and later became the best seller for the brand. The Honda Amaze is a compact sedan which competes with cars like Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Hyundai Xcent, Ford Aspire and VW Ameo in the segment. Here we have walk-around video showing how does the base variant of the Honda Amaze look like and what features does it offer.
The video has been uploaded by MotorCraze on their Youtube channel. The video does a detailed walk around of the Honda Amaze ‘E’ trim which happens to be the cheapest Honda Amaze one can buy. The base variant only gets a normal key with no central locking or keyless entry feature. The Amaze gets the same chrome garnish on the front grille with Honda logo in the middle. The E variant does not get fog lamps but there are provisions to install one. video also says that fog lamps can be bought from showroom as an accessory as well.
Coming to the side, it gets 14 inch steel wheels as standard whereas the higher version gets 15 inch wheels with alloys. Customer can also opt for 15 inch alloys on E trim by making an additional payment. The mirrors are not body coloured, they are black and the door handles are also black and are not body coloured or do not get any chrome on them. Rear also remains plain and simple with just Amaze and petrol or diesel engine badging at the rear.
Coming inside, it is again plain and simple with beige colour plastic door pads, black dashboard with no infotainment system, manual AC controls, no steering mounted controls and fabric seats. 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 base E trim is only available with manual gearbox. Honda Amaze is the only compact sedan in the segment to provide CVT as an option in diesel variants. The car is a great alternative to the likes of the Maruti Dzire, Ford Aspire, Hyundai Volkswagen Ameo and the Tata Tigor. Soon, it’ll have to contend with the Hyundai Aura, a new compact sedan lined up for launch later this month.
