Honda launches new Amaze starting at Rs 5.6 lakh; pricing, variants and more

"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. The new Amaze also offers a generous amount of space and comfort to the occupants. The sub 4-metre sedan will be available in 12 trim for the Indian market among which six are the petrol variants which range between Rs 5.59 Lakh (ex-showroom) to Rs 7.57 Lakh (ex-showroom), while the diesel lineup is priced between Rs 6.69 Lakh (ex-showroom) to Rs 8.67 (ex-showroom).

Moving to the diesel motor, the machine gets the 1.5-litre i-DTEC, turbocharged engine, which chunks the maximum power of 100 PS with peak torque of 200 Nm, which is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. 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. The 90PS, 1.2-litre petrol claims to return 19.5kmpl for the manual and 19kmpl for the automatic variant, while the 100PS, 1.5-litre diesel claims a fuel efficiency of 27.4kmpl for the manual and 23.8kmpl for the automatic.
