More About Honda Amaze

Based on the Brio hatchback, Honda Amaze is the brand's first compact sedan. With its unbelievable price and mileage numbers, the car has been designed to meet the small car norms of being less than 4m in length, thereby gaining tax concessions. The car comes with a 1.2-litre i-vtec petrol engine and an all-new 1.5-litre i-dtec diesel motor. It is also Honda's first car with a diesel engine. With the Amaze, Honda hopes to regain its dwindling sales.
The interiors of Honda Amaze, in whatever way you put it, are similar to the Brio hatchback in design. The quality, fit and finish of the plastics are the same as that in the Brio, which is average, and comes in a dual tone design with black and beige shades. However, the design is slightly uninspiring and it is very evident that Honda has done some cost cutting. For example, the rear tail gate is made entirely of glass and looks cheap, and so does the brownish colour of the dash, which isn’t the best quality either. What has improved over the Brio is the overall cabin space, due to the extended wheelbase. There is enough space for five fully-grown over-sized Indians in the car and that too in comfort. The seats are nice, and offer enough thigh and lumbar support. There is a lot of knee room, while the head room is just about enough. Thanks to the big windows, the cabin feels airy, as compared to the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, which feels cramped. The Amaze also has far more boot space than the Dzire, measuring 400 litres. The ergonomics of Honda Amaze are spot on and one feels instantly at home in the car. It's great to find a good driving position with the pedals and steering falling into place right where you want them to be. If not so, the steering wheel is adjustable for a better position. The audio system and air conditioning unit is close to the driver to provide more comfort. Equipment level is decent and includes features such as driver info display, steering-mounted audio controls, ABS, airbags, keyless entry, cup holders, etc. The top-end version of the Honda Amaze also gets a rear central arm-rest with built-in cup holders if you fancy yourself some chauffeur-driven indulgence.
Honda Amaze is a rather nice-looking car. The car is visually appealing and ticks most of the right boxes. Although Honda Amaze might just seem like a Brio with an added boot, it's much more. The front grille and bumper of Honda Amaze have been redesigned to make it look easily distinguishable from the Brio. The front bonnet and front fender almost seem to be carved as if the engineers at Honda kept aerodynamics in mind. The car seems chiselled with lines running across the body, as if sculpted by air. The side profile of Honda Amaze carries two strong shoulder lines running from each end, finishing in parallel at the front door. The front fascia features a rather large air intake grill under the headlamp cluster and the front grill. The front grill has a dual chrome lining with the proud Honda logo sitting at the top. The wheel arches of the Honda Amaze aren't as profound as you'd expect them to be, but they're subtly Honda. The boot of Honda Amaze is neatly integrated into the body and the car has a nice rear end to it. The rear of this car is much better than most of its competitors, especially the rear of the Maruti Suzuki DZire. The beautiful clear lens tail lamps are the highlight of the rear. The wheelbase of Honda Amaze has been increased for more room inside and it measures 2405 mm. Therefore, the car offers a lot of space inside as compared to the Brio, thanks also to the clever interior design. The Honda Amaze is 3990 mm in length, which gives it the tax advantage of being under 4 metres. The width of Honda Amaze stands at 1680 mm and the height is 1505 mm. With 165 mm of ground clearance, the Honda Amaze is a good city run about. The car rides on 14-inch alloy wheels, which look very elegant. They come wrapped in 175/65 section tyres, which provide decent grip. Overall, Amaze is a modern and funky-looking car.
Honda Amaze gets the same 1.2-litre four-cylinder i-vtec petrol motor that the Brio hatchback has. The engine develops 88 PS of power at 6000 rpm while the torque produced is 109 Nm at 4500 rpm. The engine is super responsive in the city traffic and like all i-vtecs, this too develops peaky power and really comes alive beyond 3000 rpm. The petrol engine gets the choice of a manual and automatic variant too. Amaze also features a diesel variant in its kitty and is responsible for most of the car’s sales. The 1.5-litre i-dtec diesel engine makes 100 PS of power at 3600 rpm and 200 Nm torque from as low as 1750 rpm. This brand new mil is essentially the same 1.6-litre diesel engine that Honda has for the international market with 100 cc of volume chopped off for tax savings. This 4-cylinder motor is also the world's lightest 1.5-litre diesel engine, which has been possible due to use of aluminium in the construction.
Honda Amaze returns a claimed mileage of 18 kmpl with the 1.2-litre petrol engine coupled to manual transmission and while mated to the automatic gearbox, it is considerably less. On the other hand, Honda Amaze diesel is the surprise package with a claimed mileage of 25.8 kmpl and is clearly the most fuel efficient sedan in the Indian market!
While the petrol Honda Amaze is no different than its younger sibling, the Brio, it's the diesel that has the sprightliest performance from the word go. It's i-dtec diesel motor is the lightest 1.5-litre diesel engine in the world. With 100 PS power on tap, the car has great acceleration and pick-up. The car pulls cleanly from just about idling all the way to 3500 rpm and being a diesel motor, the torquey delivery aids in city driving. Stick this to a light chassis, Honda Amaze, and you have a real performer. The Amaze diesel leaves Swift DZire trailing in its wake and can out run almost anything in its segment. The car is bonkers fast and you have to drive it to believe it. However, the NVH levels are a bit too high with diesel under the hood. There is a lot of clatter, which filters into the cabin and is just not natural for a Honda. Handling of Honda Amaze is good and justifiable for its price segment. It is nimble and the steering is light. The car is predictable till a limit; however, when pushed hard, the rear does step out. The car rides on 14-inch allow wheels wrapped with 175/65 tyres, though we feel that car does appear to be slightly “under-tyred.” Having said that, the tyres are comfortable, providing low road noise, and absorb minor undulations with ease.
Braking is good as well with Honda offering ABS on the higher versions which helps in emergency braking situations. The 175/65 R14 MRF tyres also work well and offer good grip during braking. Safety features in the Honda Amaze include ABS, airbags, etc. The car has also been tested for crash worthiness.
