"The consumer has changed today and while earlier he was more practical oriented and was okie with a small auto with a boot for a sedan, today he is more aspirational", said Rajesh Goel, senior vice president and director, sales and marketing, Honda Cars India Ltd.

The new Honda Amaze 2018 is based on a all-new platform and the kerb weight of the compact sedan stands between 905kg and 1,039kg. At the front, the sedan comes with the new thicker chrome grill similar to the Honda City, connecting both the LED position headlamps, which now gets the DRLs.

However, both the engines get an optional CVT. At the rear, it has C-shape combination tail lamps which adds another new style statement to its design. The engines on the auto are carried over from the old model, which means that the familiar 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre diesel powertrains propel the vehicle. The biggest changes in design shows on the front of the vehicle that comes with a muscular bumper and new grille design as compared to previous generation Amaze.
