The Honda Amaze was first launched in 2013. Back then it was based on the Brio hatchback. The Amaze that is available now is an all-new design. The Amaze is a sub-four metre entry-level sedan from Honda. In this article, we will discuss five major reasons to buy Honda Amaze
Honda Amaze Safety
Safety is one feature that you cannot overlook while buying a car. The Honda Amaze gets dual airbags and ABS with EBD as a standard feature across all variants. But what makes it better is the strong build quality that Honda offers in its Amaze. Although the car that is sold in India is not tested for the Global NCAP ratings, the car that is made in India and exported to South Africa had scored a four-star safety rating at the Global NCAP testing.
Honda Amaze Engine
The Honda Amaze is available in BS6 compliant petrol and diesel engines. The 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine produces 90bhp and 110Nm of torque mated to a five-speed manual and a CVT gearbox with paddle shifters. The petrol engine gives you a mix of both, performance and mileage. The petrol engine in the Honda Amaze is perfect for city driving. The mileage offered by the petrol engine in real-life situations in the city is around 12-15 kmpl and on the highway its 15-17 kmpl. The diesel engine offered in the Honda Amaze is equally efficient. The 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine produces 99bhp and 200Nm of torque mated to a five-speed manual and a CVT gearbox with paddle shifters. If you are a car enthusiast looking for performance the diesel engine offered in the Honda Amaze will definitely win your heart. The diesel engine in the Honda Amaze offers 14-16 kmpl in the city and 18-20 kmpl while driving on the highway.
The NVH (noise, vibrations, harshness) level of the Amaze is low. The drive quality of the Amaze is good. The car remains grounded even at high speed while driving on the highway. The steering is very light to steer and won’t cause fatigue while driving in the city.
While other carmakers offer an AMT gearbox in this price range. Honda Amaze gets a CVT gearbox in both petrol and diesel. Between AMT and CVT gearbox, the CVT gearbox is always better than the AMT gearbox as there are no jerks while gear shifts. You get paddle shifters in the CVT gearbox which makes gear shifting quick and easy. You also get a sport mode in the CVT gearbox. Usually, automatic or AMT cars deliver less mileage than their manual variants. But the Honda Amaze delivers similar mileage figures with the CVT gearbox when compared to its manual gearbox variant.
Premium and Spacious Interiors
Honda’s main focus has always been on providing a premium product. The car has got good ergonomic designs and the keys, knobs, the touchscreen is easy to access. At any point while driving everything is so well placed that you won’t have to struggle to reach for them. The car comes loaded with features like a reverse parking camera, cruise control, auto headlamps, and fast charging point along with a standard 12-volt power outlet. The interiors of the cabin are beige and that makes the cabin airier and gives an upmarket feel to it. The seats are comfortable and get side support and thigh support. The cushioning of the seat is not too hard or not too soft, but just perfect. The rear seats get a good recline angle which makes it comfortable for long-distance traveling. The rear seats can be occupied by three people but might have some struggle with shoulder room for healthy people. The rear seat also comes with armrest and cup holders. The Honda Amaze has the largest boot space in this segment with 420-litre of boot space. This makes traveling with a lot of luggage easy.
