Honda made the global launch of its Amaze compact sedan in Thailand. Powered by Honda's 1.2-liter i-VTEC engine, the Amaze has been launched in four variants (two automatic and two manual) and priced between 454,000 THB and 521,000 THB (Rs 8.16 lakh and Rs 9.35 lakh) in Thailand

The much awaited Honda Amaze compact sedan that is based on the Brio hatchback has been launched in Thailand. At the moment, Honda has only launched the petrol version of the Amaze in Thailand that is powered by its 1.2-litre i-VTEC engine. Available in four variants (two automatic and two manual), the Honda Amaze has been priced between 454,000 THB and 521,000 THB (Rs 8.16 lakh and Rs 9.35 lakh). 

 

The Japanese car maker will be launching both petrol and diesel versions of the Amaze compact sedan in India next year. And judging by the current market scenario the Honda Amaze is expected to be priced between Rs 5 lakh and Rs 6.5 lakh for the petrol variants and Rs 6 lakh to Rs 7.5 lakh for the diesel models. 

 

The petrol Amaze will be powered by the company’s 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine that does duty in the Brio and Jazz hatchbacks. 

 

As for the diesel engine, Honda had unveiled its 1.6 diesel engine at the 2011 Tokyo Motor Show. However, due to regulations in India diesel engines displacing less than 1,500cc bear lower taxes.

Honda is therefore working on a downsized 1.5-litre i-DTEC engine with a shorter stroke and slightly different exhaust treatment that will displace less than 1,500cc. This makes perfect sense since the Amaze is a compact and lightweight sedan.
