Honda Amaze humiliates its rivals

Recommended Posts

Hyundai i20 v/s Honda Amaze: Honda Amaze comes with all the essential comfort features like power windows, power steering, music system, central locking, and a powerful AC. The dashboard again has a striking resemblance to its sibling in Brio with the same central console containing all the essential controls. The look of the steel arches from the side, gives Amaze a sporty look. The back is proportionate to the front part of the car differentiating it from the other compact sedans. The chrome panels on the back, gives the car the occasional premium touch.

The fluidic design gives the eye-catching effect to the i20. The multi reflector front fog lamps, built in the lower section of the bumper and the 8 spoke alloy wheels give the car a very sporty look. The flush mounted headlamps near the front grille give a very clear vision for a better driving comfort. Like all hatchbacks, Hyundai gives the extra bit of boot space with the i20 too.

Looking inside the bonnet of Amaze, the power does not betray Honda’s name with the car reaching 100 km/hr in a mere 13 seconds. Honda Amaze boasts of 25.8 kmpl for the diesel variant, again the best in class, hence balancing the two ends of the balance very well. The i-Vtec engine is pitched as the most powerful and fuel efficient engine in the segment, leaving its competitors miles behind.

Hyundai i20’s engine, on paper is one of the finest hatchback engines on paper, with great power and a decent mileage. But when compared to the compact sedan, Honda Amaze, which is built on the platform of a hatchback itself, the frugal engine of i20, seems not so economical. Here also, the i-VTEC engine of Amaze, leaves the i20, far behind.

Renault Duster v/s Honda Amaze: The exteriors of the both the cars are good, Duster gives you the feel of a sporty off-roader. Honda as always goes with the premium classy look. The exteriors would always command for a look from the people if you sit in any of the cars, as they are both extremely stylish and good looking cars.

When we take a look at the interiors, we are actually disappointed watching the Duster losing the battle to Amaze. The black touch to the interiors gives a sporty look to the car, but the plastic is not very impressive. While on the other side, Amaze is all through a premium looking car, also inside out. Honda stands firm on the premium brand image it owns and maintains and gains a brownie point against Duster here.

The torque produced by the 85bhp Duster is good and its actually enough at least for city driving. The problem with automobile companies all over the world has been, ‘with great power, comes lower fuel economy’. But surprisingly, both the cars we are talking about seem to have balanced the two ends very well.

Which car would you choose and why?
