Honda is currently on a roll in India. The Japanese automaker is banking on the success of its recent launches, namely the WR-V, City facelift and the new Amaze. The last of them all, the second-generation Amaze is contributing more than a reasonable amount of Honda’s sales here.
As per reports, sales have clocked to 30,000 units just three months since it was officially launched. Out of those, the petrol CVT and the new diesel CVT have contributed to more than 30% of the total sales of the car. The new Amaze now holds the record for the highest sales numbers managed by a Honda car in India in its first three months.
This has resulted in a staggering overall growth of 12.5% for Honda during the April-July period. India is the first country to get the second-generation Amaze and the car has responded brilliantly by raking in good sales numbers. Honda offers 3 years/ unlimited kilometers warranty and low cost of maintenance for the Amaze.
Honda sells the Amaze in both petrol and diesel engine options here. The petrol engine is a 1.2-litre motor, producing 90 bhp of power and 110 Nm of torque. On the other hand, there is a 1.5-litre diesel engine which gives 100 bhp of power and 200 Nm of torque.
There is also a 5-speed CVT unit available on the diesel, giving 80 bhp of power and 160 Nm of torque. Both engines come mated either to a 5-speed manual or a CVT transmission. Honda claims that the Amaze gives a fuel economy of about 19-27 km per litre.
It is priced at Rs. 5.81 lakh to Rs. 9.11 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi) across variants. The Amaze rivals the likes of the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Ford Aspire, Tata Tigor and the Volkswagen Ameo. The Amaze is based on an all-new platform, which being cost-effective, will spawn future mass market offerings from the company here.
