Some months ago at the 2018 Auto Expo in India, Honda had taken us by a storm by unveiling the second generation Amaze. With this, we have been eagerly waiting for the launch of this new generation compact Sedan in the Indian market. Well, the wait is finally over, as the Japanese Auto Manufacturer, Honda has launched the New Amaze at a starting price of Rs 5.60 lakh (Ex-Showroom, Delhi).
The 2018 Honda Amaze will be available in four different trims levels such as: E, S, V and VX. E being the base trim and VX being the top trim, as we mentioned that the starting price is set to Rs 5.60 lakh (Ex-Showroom, Delhi) the top trim is priced at Rs 9.00 lakh (Ex-showroom, Delhi). Well, these being the introductory price, once the bookings cross the 20,000 mark, the prices will be increased.
Aesthetically, the new generation Amaze gets new face which looks similar to its elder sibling the Civic which gets angular headlight unit and some chrome inserts on the grille. At the rear, it gets bigger boot, with increased boot space and it also is equipped with a new tail light unit.
Stepping, in you will notice that the cabin is more spacious with extended leg room in comparison with the previous generation Amaze. The design of the cabin has taken impression from the Honda Jazz and the Honda City from its stable. Speaking about features and modern technology, the mid trims are equipped with push button start, keyless entry, automatic climate control and paddle shifters for the CVT option. While the top trim gets 7.0inch touchscreen infotainment system which is compatible with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, reverse camera with sensors, steering mounted audio controls and voice controls. Speaking about safety, front dual airbags, ABS, rear parking sensors and ISOFIX child seat mounts are standard right from the base trims.
Let us pop up the hood and have a look at what powers the second generation Honda Amaze, shall we? Powering the new Amaze is the same 1.2 litre petrol engine generating 90bhp of power and the same 1.5 litre diesel mill producing 100 bhp of power. But the diesel engine now gets an optional CVT transmission just like the one which was available on the previous gen petrol mill. On the other hand, both the petrol and diesel mill gets the five speed manual gearbox.
With the launch of the 2018 Honda Amaze, the Japanese Auto Manufacturer has priced this Compact Sedan similar to the Maruti Suzuki Dzire. Hence it gives direct competition to the Dzire along with the Hyundai Xcent and Tata Tigor in the Indian market.
