About Honda Amaze

The Honda Amaze is back in an all-new avatar, replacing the five-year-old first-gen model. The Honda Amaze promises to be bigger and better in every way than its predecessor, and also better than its competition. A unique SUV-esque in-your-face boxy design, premium interiors, high-end features, the unique diesel-CVT option and a better ownership experience are what should help the Amaze set itself apart.

Latest On Honda Amaze

Honda’s new-generation Amaze has found 50,000 homes since its launch. And there are quite a few interesting statistics Honda had to share. For starters, the Japanese automaker says almost 20 per cent of Amaze buyers are first-time car buyers. Of all cars, 40 per cent were sold in Tier 1 cities, whereas Tier 2 and Tier 3 locales contributed 30 per cent each. The Amaze is the only compact sedan in the market to offer a CVT automatic with both petrol and diesel engines. Unsurprisingly, demand is strong for the two-pedal variants, with 30 per cent of total sales coming from the automatic versions.

Honda Amaze Mileage

The claimed ARAI mileage for the Honda Amaze petrol is 19 kmpl, and for the Honda Amaze diesel is 27 kmpl.

Editor's View of Honda Amaze

  • Upside

    Refined petrol engine, punchy diesel, s-m-o-o-t-h CVT automatic, spacious cabin and boot

  • Downside

    Plastic quality could’ve been better, no top-spec automatic variant, missing equipment

  • Our Verdict

    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!

Honda Amaze Highlights

Overview

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!

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.

Specifications

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.

Variants

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.

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 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!

ZigSays

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!
