Honda Amaze REVIEW
Introduction

Honda entered the sub 4 meter sedan segment with the introduction of Honda Amaze in the year 2013. The all new Honda Amaze features some drastic cosmetic changes on both exterior as well on the interior end of the car without making any significant changes in its dimensions which remains at 3990 mm in length, 1680mm in width, 1505 mm in height and 2405 long wheelbase. It also gives a sufficient ground clearance of 16mm. The automobile comes equipped with a vast accessory brochure enabling a buyer to customize their car.

 

Outlook and Exteriors

Standing in front of the sedan, it is pretty easy to point the changes. The updated Amaze houses an all new bold chrome slat in place of the twin slated grille. Look down and you’ll notice a massiveair intake in the center along with grown fog lamp clusters on each side.

Coming to the side of the Honda car, the profile remains same and housesthe same character lines as its predecessor.The rear of the new Amaze however, features an all new tail light cluster design.  Apart from that, it continues to sport a similarchrome bar and exhaust pipe along with asharp creased bumper as before.


Interior, Features and Ambience

The major changes in the Honda Amaze are primarily reflected in its interior. The dash of the Amaze is now inspired from the new Honda City. We have seen in recent times Honda doing the same thing with the Honda Mobilio. It now gets a piano black treatment on thecenter console incorporating rectangular A/C vents with silver accents and a touchscreen infotainment system with Bluetooth and AUXconnectivity. Further, the new Honda Amaze also gets an auto climate control featureinits higher variants. Even the instrument cluster is tweaked and made more stylish while retaining the 3-pod layout.

 

Engine and Performance

The updated Honda Amaze continues to use the same mill, the 1.2-liter i-VTEC petrol or 1.5-liter i-DTEC diesel engine. The 1.2-litre (1198cc) petrol unit generates a maximum power of 86.7bhp @ 6000rpm with a peak torque @ 109Nm at 4500rpm. It delivers a fuel economy of 18kmpl. 

Whereas the 1498cc, 1.5-litre diesel motor churns out a maximum power of 98.6bhp @ 3600rpm with a torque of 200Nm @ 1750rpm while delivering a fuel efficiency of 25kmpl. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed manual gearbox, while the petrol variant is available with an automatic transmission as well. The throttle response is good, acceleration is smoothand the power delivery is linear; just like before. 

 

Ride Quality and Handling

The ride quality and drivability continue to remain same on the new Amaze as the mechanisms are unchanged. Both engines are refined and pretty rev-happy. However, the diesel engine is somewhat noisy, but that said, it has the power to bring a smile on your face.

After taking a test drive of Honda Amaze, one can easily notice the improved noise insulations in the car. The NVH levels in the petrol variant have been comparatively improved but the diesel still lacks in meeting the refinement mark.As a passenger in the car, the ride quality is decent. However, on rough patches, it maneuvers with a thud on your back.

 

Braking and Safety

Just like the previous model, the updated Honda Amaze comes equipped with safety features such as Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS), Electronic Brake Force System (EBS), immobilizer Anti-Theft System and front dual SRS Airbags. Coming to the braking of the car, there are disc brakes in the front wheels and drum brakes in the rear.

 

Verdict

Though Amaze rivals against many feature rich vehicles such as Volkswagen Ameo, Maruti Swift Dzire and Hyundai Xcent, but it keeps up as a pretty good choice for individuals wishing to own a sedan at a competitive price starting at only 5.29 lakhs.
