Honda Amaze Highlights
Honda’s second-generation Amaze promises to be not just a better compact sedan than it once was, it also promises to be a better Honda. To do just that, it borrows heavily from the Accord and the City in terms of design. It’s stuffed with the features you want too. What’s more, it’s packing an ace up its sleeve with the engine and transmission combinations. Over the usual manuals, Honda is offering a polished CVT automatic with both the petrol and diesel engine options. The Amaze has levelled up!
The Honda Amaze is offered with two engines - a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine, and a 1.5-litre diesel motor. While the petrol makes 90PS of power and 110Nm of torque, the diesel gets 100PS and 200Nm. Both engines are available with a 5-speed manual or a CVT automatic. Do note that picking the diesel-CVT will get you 80PS/160Nm — that’s 20PS and 40Nm less. Save for the petrol-CVT, we’ve tested all versions of the Amaze. The petrol manual was expectedly the slowest to 100kmph, taking a full 12 seconds. Comparatively, the diesel-CVT took 11.27 seconds whereas the diesel-manual needed just 10.06 seconds to get to the ton. In terms of efficiency, the order is no different. The petrol manual returned 15.15kmpl (city)/20.01kmpl (highway), the diesel-CVT was second best with 19.28kmpl (city)/22.68kmpl (highway) and the diesel manual bagged the top spot again with 19.68kmpl (city)/23.37kmpl (highway). If you’re looking at getting some driving fun out of your Honda, make sure you pick the diesel. The petrol feels best suited for in-city commutes and occasional highway trips. Suspension is also better suited for city roads and tends to get a little bouncy out on the highway.
You get to choose between four Honda Amaze variants - E, S, V and VX. All variants can be had with either engine, but the automatic is available in the S and V variant only. A top-spec automatic variant is sorely missed. The base-spec E variant misses out on even essentials such as a music system, rear defogger and central locking. Next on the list is the S which we believe is great value for money. It gets electric-adjust and fold for the ORVMs, a 2DIN audio system paired with four speakers and a height-adjustable driver seat. Moreover, it also gets gloss black and silver highlights inside the cabin which make it look rich. Next on the list is the V trim, which is the one to go for if you’re buying an Amaze automatic. You get 15-inch alloy wheels, LED light guides, climate control and push-button start/stop for the added kit. The top-spec VX variant adds a touchscreen, a reverse parking camera and cruise control to the equipment list.
Amaze Exterior and Interior
The new Amaze looks nothing like the car it replaces. In fact, most would wonder if it’s a Honda to begin with. The squared off design will undoubtedly draw a lot of polarising opinions. We think it looks quirky enough to stand out. That said, it desperately needs some bling like projector headlamps or even bigger machine-finished alloy wheels. It does get LED DRLs that try to add a premium touch to the overall design.
With the boxy straight-cut design comes an obvious advantage. Lots of space on the inside! There’s enough room inside the cabin for four six-footers to be seated. But, there’s a small hiccup, the angle of the dashboard forces the front occupant to sit further behind than usual. This limits space for the rear occupant. The boot, at 420-litres, is the biggest in its segment. In terms of features, the top-spec VX variant gets automatic climate control, a touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a parking camera as well as cruise control. It misses out on finer details such as rear-AC vents and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. To keep you safe, Honda is offering dual airbags, and ABS with EBD as standard across all variants.
Honda Amaze Competitors
Maruti Suzuki Dzire : The Maruti Dzire sits at the top of the compact sedan segment quite comfortably. The new generation has improved by leaps and bounds, and is among your best bets if you’re looking for a compact sedan.
Hyundai Xcent : : Based on the Grand i10 hatchback, this compact sedan combines space and practicality of a larger car with the reliability and low cost of ownership associated with the brand. The Xcent is not as spacious as the competition but has one of the better-built interiors. The Xcent does not get a diesel automatic variant, unlike the Ameo, Amaze or the Dzire.
Ford Aspire : : With the recent update, Ford has plugged all the gaps in the Aspire’s arsenal. The new petrol engine is almost as fun to drive as the diesel. It’s amongst the most value-for-money compact sedans on the market today! The Titanium + also features 6 airbags - a segment first.
Honda’s second-generation Amaze brings a lot to the table. Plenty of features, a spacious cabin, a refined petrol engine and a fun diesel too. The CVT stands out in a sea of jerky AMTs. Add the allure of the Honda badge, and you’ve got a product that appeals to the head and the heart!

- I've no idea about honda amaze since I've Swift Dzire vxi thus I would suggest vxi because after my experience with the car the vehicle is really good with power steering for handling Delhi trafffic & ofcourse easy service of the vehicle with reasonable price
- Dezire is cheap to run but doesn't has that build quality which Amaze has. Amaze has received 4 stars in Global NCAP for crash test, whereas Dezire's built quality is questionable.The parts for Dezire are cheap, however they are needed to be changed more frequently than the Amaze. Hence the actual cost of ownership is lesser in an Amaze then the Dezire
- ☺ Swift dzire is always cheaper than Amaze And its maintenance is also cheap than honda. Or of you want passion than buy Amaze but its fuel average is near 12.to 15
- Both are different types of cars but I can say by my experience Tata Nexon is way much better than other cars in the price range. best build quality, amazing engine performance, safest car in India, most comfortable in segment and having very good features and style.

Amaze can"t overcome hills.Low power is main issue I found and it"s only in petrol version.I am also one of the happy customer of Honda until driving a hill or ascent.Amaze can"t overcome ascents.Its the only issue i found since driving 3000km,which is not an acceptable issue.When i contacted Honda they said its handed over to dealer,but the dealer informed Honda that they didn"t find any abnormality in my car which they accepted that Amaze has power issue and its for maintaining mileage once i was there at showroom.And when i asked dealer about their reply to Honda they said its made like that they can"t tell this to Honda,if we want to ride hills we must choose another vehicle and they can"t fit same Honda engine on both boat and car(just imagine my situation hearing this kind of reply from dealers).Really pathetic situation. So, dear brothers and sisters please don"t buy amaze petrol.If you like Amaze go for diesel.All other features in amaze are good.I choose petrol because i am not aware of this power issue and now suffering for my choice.My bad i have test driven Amaze but not on an ascents. When you people ask sales person about this power issue they will reply there is nothing like that,better have a test drive with the same sales person on a hill or ascent and ask him to stop car in middle and then move, you can experience what i was saying about.
Following is a review on the Honda Amaze Petrol after 5000kms. Looks: The overall silhouette of the new Amaze is good. It now looks like a bigger car compared to the previous version. I am not a big fan of the thick chrome grill at the front. The headlamps are stylish. The rear looks good with C-shaped lamps and sloping roof.Performance: The engine is super smooth and the gears are slick. Frequent gear changing is required but the performance is good. The initial pickup is low to maintain fuel economy. The car feels best on the highway. Feels stable even at speeds of 120kmph.Interiors: The interior is spacious and comfortable. The beige and piano black finish looks classy. The AC is quick and powerful. The rear seats offer ample legroom. The door speakers produce good sound. Audio controls are present on the steering wheel. The boot is spacious at 420 liters.Mileage: For a 1.2 liter petrol sedan, the mileage is good. It offers about 18.5 kmpl on the highway and 14-15 kmpl in the city with AC.Ride and Stability: The wheels soak up most bumps effortlessly. The ride quality is good. The stability at high speeds is good and body roll is controlled.Overall: Value for money. Spacious interiors and boot space. Good mileage and ride comfort.
1. Honda Elite Cars Rajahmundry delivery my car in time as they promised to me.After reviewing Swift,Xcent and Ertiga i decided to by New Honda Amaze.I have seen so may bad review in amaze but my friend who is service engineer of Top Brand told that New Amaze is best in segment . Also service cost is low as so many told that Honda car service is High.2. I completed my 900 KMS traveled continuously for 300 KMS i did not feel any discomfort while journey. But the same journey with Etois i feel so much discomfort . Normally when we travel in car we feel dizzy but with amaze while riding we feel as we are at home . AC is very good no need for Rear AC vent.3. From far its looks like Volvo car. Mileage is good got AVG 21KMPL with in local and Highway. Some reviews told there is a problem in reverse gear but it is totally wrong.4. yet to give to service 5. Pros:Lots of boot Space, Leg room , Audio is Superb when compared to other cars . Diesel engines are noisy but Amaze engine is low noise like petrol engine. AC is very good no need for Rear AC vent.Cons: Some told that it has no resale value. But with Honda Pre owned car and its brand its not a big issue it think.
I bought the iDTEC Amaze in January 2014, and have run over 1,10,000 KM over varied terrains. The Amaze is definitely the best car in its segment. With amazing performance and fantastic mileage, coupled with great road grip, handling and safety, this is the car you should look at over any other in its segment. The car handles very well on the highway and has more than enough oopmh to overtake any vehicle on the road. A super responsive engine, you will experience no turbo lag.Be vary of unnecessary service add ons though. When you give the car for service, they’ll try to get you to sign unnecessary “value add ons” like rodent repellent, etc etc which can add thousands to your service bill.
Suspension quality is very poor. Honda Amaze has extremely soft suspension which results in high body roll and poor ground clearance.Build quality of both interior and exterior parts are very poor. External noise enters in cabin very easily. Engine quality is excellent but there's a speed limiter on 145KM/Hour which is for safety reasons obviously but it makes the car out of the competition when it comes to the top speed.Overall I'm neither satisfied nor dissatisfied with it but yes, not happy with the build quality and suspension system. I have a 2017 model petrol SMT model.
Good car.. I bought this car only for highway
nice car with no styling and additional featuresjust for travelling normallyno luxury
comfortable car but top end model pricing was too high.
Spacious & feature loaded car.
Maintenance cost too high. Safty is not too good.

Editor's View of Honda Amaze
Refined petrol engine, punchy diesel, s-m-o-o-t-h CVT automatic, spacious cabin and boot
Plastic quality could’ve been better, no top-spec automatic variant, missing equipment
It’s a much more polished version of a car it once was. Ticks the basics of space, drivability and efficiency just right. Could’ve done with better quality interiors and some more features, though!
