The 1.5-litre, i-DTEC Earth Dreams engine that does duty in the recently launched Honda Amaze has been developed by Honda specifically for the Indian subcontinent. This engine has been built off the 1.6-litre i-DTEC engine that is used in the European version of Honda cars, along with many modifications to make it more suitable to the Asian environment. This new engine has been developed by incorporating an all-aluminium open-deck for the die cast engine block that is not only compact but is also lighter. The crankshaft has also been treated with nitrous making it lighter yet giving it more tensile strength. Apart from the crankshafts, the pistons and connecting rods too have been developed to be light-weight; the pistons have the smallest skirt areas in the segment. The combustion system too has undergone modifications, to make it environment friendly and maximise on fuel efficiency. Additionally, the cooling system is ultra-efficient along with a specially developed low viscosity engine oil that helps lubricate the engine and reduce friction.

CarDekho reviews the latest diesel version of the Honda Amaze. Rachit Hirani reviews the Honda Amaze diesel variant in detail, noting minute factors such as engine noise, handling capability, etc. As Rachit notes, Honda Amaze can be observed to have a premium look compared to the funky appeal of Brio. The Honda Amaze is however based on the Brio platform. The front fascia of Honda amaze is observed to offer a beautiful chrome detailed twin horizontal grill. Rachit also explains that the profile of Honda Amaze is similar to earlier versions except for the B-pillar, after which the wheelbase of the Honda Amaze increases by 60mm, which can clearly be observed in the large rear doors.
The rear view of the Honda Amaze is reminiscent of the well lauded Honda City with the chrome lining between the tail lamp cluster. The interiors of the Honda Amaze are highly stylish with minimal design and easy-to-use build. The comfort and elegance can be reflected not just in the design but also in the spacious arrangement which helps customers have a comfortable ride except for the headroom which might be a little issue for passengers with bigger girths. Rachit also explains that the 400-litre boot offered in the Honda Amaze is best in the segment and the diesel variant is devoid of any extensive noise issues which might have made the ride a tough one. The diesel variant handles pretty good and the minor issues in the prototype have been evidently resolved in the final version. The pricing, Rachit says, would be the real deciding factor for the Honda Amaze.
