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.
