Honda Cars India has just launched the second-generation Amaze. The all-new Amaze is built on a completely new platform and is a more modern car than the outgoing version. Prices of the new Amaze start at Rs 5,59,900 and go all the way up to Rs 8,99,900.
The new Amaze becomes the first-ever C1 segmenter to offer a CVT-equipped diesel variant. There are many other highlights of the new sedan, which are highlighted in our detailed image gallery here –
The front-end of the car has traces of the new Accord’s and the new Civic’s design. The car gets the signature Honda H-design front grille, a sporty bumper, and a sleek pair of headlamps. The front-end looks muscular and sufficiently modern.
In spite of the sub-4-meter overall length, the side profile of the new Amaze looks sufficiently proportional. It features a bold shoulder-line and a pronounced body baseline. The top-end trims get attractive multi-spoke alloy wheels.
The rear-end carries a rather futuristic looking set of wrap-around taillamps. Basically, the rear-end compliments the front-end pretty well.
The interior looks as modern as the exterior. It gets a black-beige colour theme. The new steering wheel has a chunky rim and audio and infotainment controls. The top-end models get a touchscreen infotainment unit that supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The lower trims, however, miss out on the Digipad touchscreen infotainment unit. They also miss out on the cruise control and come with one less USB port.
The interior offers a long list of features such as an automatic aircon, engine start-stop button, rear armrest, driver’s seat height adjustment, and tilt steering. Moreover, the car offers dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, ISOFIX child seat anchorage, and driver’s seatbelt reminder as standard features across all the trims.
The new Honda Amaze offers a boot space of 420-litres, which is 20-litres higher than what the earlier version offered.
The new Honda Amaze gets the same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel engines that powered the earlier car. However, this time around, there’s an optional CVT for both the engines.
With this, the Honda Amaze becomes the first-ever diesel-powered sedan to offer a CVT.
The CVT offers steering-mounted paddle shifts to help you have at least some control over the automatic gearbox.
However, for the diesel CVT variant, Honda has de-tuned the diesel engine to offer only 80 PS and 160 Nm. This is 20% lesser than what the manual variant offers.
The new Honda Amaze is available with two accessories packs – Chrome Package and Utility Package. You can opt for either of these to enhance the aesthetic appeal of your new Amaze.
