Honda Amaze premium sedan, set for deliveries immediately after launch, gets detailed with some outstanding features and excellent performance. It continues to sport the same engine lineup as seen in powering its earlier counterpart tweaked for added performance and mileage.
Honda Amaze is positioned on a new platform which boasts of Honda’s advanced engineering prowess. It was showcased at the 2018 Auto Expo and will be offered in four trim levels – E, S, V and VX.

It also gets a multi-function steering wheel with automatic climate control, push button start stop features and a quieter cabin with lower NVH levels.
Making of New Honda Amaze
Though 2nd Generation Honda Amaze continues to be powered by same engine lineup, improved performance and better mileage is seen on the 1.5 liter i-DTEC turbo diesel engine mated to a CVT automatic gearbox with paddle shifters. The 1.2 liter i-VTEC petrol gets manual and CVT options.
