2nd-gen Honda Amaze launched in India.

Honda has announced the launch of the second-generation Amaze compact sedan in India. It is available in 4 manual transmission variants and 2 CVT variants. Introductory prices start at Rs. 5,59,900 (ex-showroom, India).

The Amaze is based on an all-new platform. It measures 3,995 mm in overall length, 1,695 mm in width and 1,498-1,501 mm in height. The car has a wheelbase of 2,470 mm. The boot capacity is 420 litres and it comes equipped with a 35-litre fuel tank.

The 2nd-gen Amaze features a new exterior design. It has a chrome grille in the front with sweptback headlamps with integrated LED DRLs and a new front bumper with rectangular fog lamp pods.

The B-pillar has been blacked out and it comes with electric ORVMs with integrated turn signals.

The car rides on 15-inch alloy wheels (lower variants get 14-inch steel wheels). Moving to the rear, the new Amaze features an angular design with C-shaped tail lamps and a shark fin antenna.

The Amaze gets dual-tone interiors with a 3-spoke multi-functional steering wheel and a twin-pod instrument cluster.

The dashboard has gloss black trim, while the centre console houses a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with voice commands, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity.

The seats are wrapped in dual-tone beige fabric. The front seats have adjustable headrests and there's a centre armrest with cup holders in the rear.

Honda is offering the Amaze with a 1.2-litre, 4-cylinder petrol engine which makes 89 BHP @ 6,00 rpm and 110 Nm of torque @ 4,800 rpm as well as a 1.5-litre, 4-cylinder diesel with 99 BHP @ 3,600 rpm and 200 Nm @ 1,750 rpm.

Both engines come paired with a 5-speed manual or CVT. The diesel CVT has a slightly lower output compared to the manual version. The CVT equipped 1.5-litre diesel makes 79 BHP @ 3,600 rpm and 160 Nm @ 1,750 rpm.

The petrol CVT gets paddles for manual gearshifts.

The standard feature list includes dual front airbags, ABS with EBD, rear parking sensors, ISOFIX child seat mounts, impact-sensing door unlock and power windows among others.

Higher variants get fog lamps, automatic climate control, cruise control and rear view camera.

The new Amaze is available in 5 colour options - Radiant Red, Orchid White Pearl, Modern Steel, Golden Metallic Brown and Lunar Silver.

Auto Expo 2018 launch -with pics

Highlights:

• Honda has unveiled the 2nd generation Amaze at the Auto Expo, as a World Premiere.

• Expected launch date in India is within the 2018-19 financial year.

• While not everyone loves the new styling, everyone seems to agree that its an improvement over the 1st generation.

• Keyless entry & go, a touch-screen HU, cruise control, adjustable headrests and more have been added.

• Interior space has been improved considerably.

• Build quality is still a bit flimsy, and cost cutting is clearly visible in places.

Not a bad car generally but the unnecessary blatant cost cutting us irritating, I like the interior, many miles ahead of the Etio.s

I like it, first thing I would do if I bought it would be to take care of that hideous rubber gaiter on the gear lever.

Fook me. Surely that can't be right!
A lot of cars manufactured in India seem to have deleted the bonnet and/or boot insulation as a cost-cutting measure - it's evident on the Tata Tiago / Tigor as well - they've removed the under-bonnet insulation, rear hatch parcel shelf strings, boot light & also replaced the 14" spare tyre with a smaller 13" one!

Under bonnet isulation is fine, many cars dont have that but the one in the boot? How much does a carpet cost? Because that is all that's needed there, not even the fancy plastic.
