Honda Amaze : Launched starting at Rs. 4.99 lakhs

Recommended Posts

Seen Amaze yesterday.

To me, Undoubtedly its body looks proportionate but more or less the car seems to be a hatchback grown into a sedan directly from its childhood or it's a scaled down to regular sedans.

Its boot section also looks much boxy & virtually heavy as compared to slim front end.

Price-wise its base E & EX i-DTEC variants looked great vfm w.r.t body size & features it offer while its top-end i-DTEC VX variant is clearly expensive for car costing Rs.8+ lacs.

Exactly, Honda seems to have this knack of hitting it's own cars with newly introduced once.

This was the same case with new Honda city was launched, it hit Civic sales badly.

This time it's going to be hit more because of diesel.

Honda was\is well aware of this fact that Amaze will cannibalize sales of City.

But the thing is IMO, Honda intentionally did this.

As we know current gen City is in its last phase of product life-cycle.

So by bringing Amaze with such a price, now Honda managed to push next gen City a little higher in pricing.

As next gen City will come with new set of features and equipments.

Overall a wise strategy.

Success of Amaze to makes Honda launch 5 vehicle in next 3 years , sadly no Diesel Hatchback , so will Jazz have an option of a diesel heart ?

No way.

Their next vehicle is going to be Brio D, may be Honda don't considers it all new.

Next to come is an MPV based on Brio

Next a Mini-SUV based on Amaze

Next ANNHC

Next New JAZZ

all these cars will have 1.5L diesel

No talk about the Diesel Brio even now , WHY ?

Jazz seems more important to them

Honda should not have 12 variants for a single car , it confuses the customer and is an inventory nightmare for dealers also getting the colour choice of a particular variant becomes tougher. The Indica Vista one had 15 varients with 10 colours to choose from and even the dealer were confused to which car had which what feature clearly.

I think Honda should remove a couple of feature from S and remove the EX variant altogether.

+1 to this.

But this might not gel well the universal variant theme for their whole range, atleast they should equip it with feature list as similar to Honda City's E, S, SV, V & VX.

Hyundai too follow similar nomenclature theme with their cars within a segment.

Set to launch on May 16, the second-gen Amaze will come in four variants and two engine options.

The new Amaze will be available in four trim levels – the base E, S, V and VX. Honda will sell the Amaze with four powertrian options at launch – both the 90hp, 1.2-litre petrol and the 100hp, 1.5-litre diesel will get the five-speed manual and the option of a CVT automatic. Interestingly, the power and torque figures in the diesel-auto option are 20hp and 40Nm less than in its manual counterpart.

Bookings for the new Honda Amaze are well underway at Honda outlets nationwide.

As far as equipment goes, the Amaze will feature dual airbags, ABS, EBD and brake assist and ISOFIX safety anchor points. Also, Honda is likely to offer standard rear parking sensors on all variants.

First up, the lowest-spec Honda Amaze E will get dual tone interior, AC and power windows with driver-side auto down function.  The Honda Amaze S is likely to come with power adjust and folding wing mirrors with LED turn signals, body coloured door handles along with a shark-fin antenna. Keyless entry, tilt steering with audio controls, driver’s seat height adjust, a rear arm rest with cup holders, a four-speaker 2-DIN audio system with USB and Bluetooth is likely to be standard on this variant.

The Amaze V will get an option of CVT gearbox for both petrol and diesel engine options. It will also get LED daytime running lights, push button start, 15-inch alloy wheels, climate control and paddle shifters for the CVT gearbox.

In addition, the top spec Amaze VX is likely to get a touchscreen infotainment system replete with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Additionally cruise control will also be available on this variant. Honda will not offer a CVT gearbox on the top-spec Amaze sedan.
