Standing tall with just the petrol cavalry, the Japanese auto major did not have any diesel troop in its army so far.

After retreating Honda is back to claim the throne in the mid level sedan segment with Amaze, the sedan which is spawned on Brio hatch and will go against the likes of Maruti Swift Dzire, Toyota Etios, Renault Scala, Nissan Sunny. The sedan is powered with the 1.5L i-DTEC diesel engine and comes paired with a five-speed gearbox. The engine is extremely fine tuned with no noise disturbance in the exterior area whatsoever albeit the story inside the cabin is not so quiet.
