Honda Amaze review



Honda Amaze is the first compact sedan by Japanese automaker to come with the iDTEC diesel motor under the hood. It was an instant success in the country and almost managed to beat the top-selling Swift Dzire in the country. However, with growing competition, sales of Amaze went down that forced the automaker to revise its strategy. In this process, the company has updated its first compact sedan with subtle changes pertaining to almost everything. Now, let's explore more into the details about the changes and upgrades that it received.


1. It new CVT transmission makes for a more stress-free drive.

2. Interior design looks drastically different from the outgoing version.

3. Honda's reliable and fuss-free ownership experience.


1. There is no improvement to the fuel economy.

2. Very poor NVH levels in diesel Variant.

Standout features:

1. An improved audio system with Bluetooth connectivity and hands-free telephone operation.

2. A brand new 3D Speedometer with multi-information display looks stunning.


The 2016 Honda Amaze comes with notable changes to its styling and features. Now, for the first time, it is available with a CVT automatic transmission that helps you cruise through heavy traffic with ease. As for the exterior updates, the car gets a new front bumper with bigger air vents and modified fog lamps. The radiator grille gets a new dual-slat design with extensive chrome treatment to it. However, major changes have been made to the interiors with a refreshing new dashboard. It looks drastically different and surprisingly good compared to its outgoing version. Another update to the interiors comes in the form of a new instrument cluster, which is a so called premium 3D speedometer with multi-information display. 


It is needless to say that Honda Amaze has paved way to most of the current good looking compact sedans such as Xcent, Aspire etc. Ever since it was first launched in 2013, it didn’t get any notable update to its styling. Now, the automaker has come with its 2016 version that looks notably different from the outgoing model. Although the body structure and design theme remains to be the same, subtle changes to its front and rear profiles rendered a distinct new look to the car. 


The front facade of the Amaze gets minor updates. Its radiator grille gets a new single-slat strip with chrome treatment. Headlight cluster design remains the same except for its smoked effect, powered with same old halogen bulbs.

The front bumper has been completely modified and is now housed with bigger air intake section and modified fog lamp consoles. 

Coming to the side, the Amaze gets an all new pair of alloy wheels with gunmetal grey finish. Apart from this, much of the design on side profile remains to be the same. There are two lines of which one start at the front wheels and goes till the rear windows and another that starts just below the end of the first line and merges into the tail lamp. 

The rising window line looks sleek without robbing the rear windows’ size much. Even the door handles are positioned in a rising line to match the profile of the side.

The rear section of the car remains largely identical to the older version, save for the new taillamps. They come with a new design, but with conventional brake lighting pattern. The Amaze gets a fat line of chrome to satisfy the chrome aficionados. 


Insides of the Amaze gets an all new design layout that renders an up-market look to the cabin. The first generation Amaze had economical-grade interiors that attracted too many complaints from the users. Keeping this in mind, Honda has completely overhauled the interiors, especially in the cockpit section. 

The interiors retain the black-beige colour treatment like the older version along with silver highlights. The build quality seems to have improved drastically, thanks to the finest materials used inside. The steering is compact and feels good to hold. The three spoke wheel gets silver accents and gets tilt adjust to find that perfect driving position and the driver height adjust makes sure you do.

Another notable changes is the new premium 3D speedometer with a multi-information display. The instrument cluster is a pretty simple layout with a large speedometer in the middle and a small MID below it. A tachometer is to the left of the cluster and to the right you get the warning lights ensemble. 

The centre console has been completely modified and is now fitted with a revised music system with MP3, USB and Aux-in and still no CD support. 

The bottom of the centre console gets the HVAC controls. All the buttons are large and easy to use. The controls and the placement of them are very user friendly.

Storage comes in the form of a glove box that is of normal size, cup holders before the gear lever, a bottle holder behind the handbrake, two cup holders in the armrest of the rear seats and bottle holders in the front and rear doors.

The Amaze is a spacious car from inside and that is some clever designing by Honda. Despite being shorter in length and wheelbase in comparison to Swift, the Amaze offers better space especially at the rear. The front seats offer amazing legroom thanks to the scooped up dashboard. At the rear, the occupants will not complain about space thanks to the generous legroom. The rear seats are lower, allowing for better head room. Honda has applied the tricks it has learnt from the Jazz to bring out maximum space inside the car.

At 400 liters, the Amaze’s boot can swallow most of the occupants’ luggage without a whine. The Amaze’s boot space is only bettered by Hyundai Accent but only by a small margin.


Honda Amaze is available with a choice of petrol and a diesel engine. The petrol Amaze is powered by a 1.2-litre engine while the diesel Amaze gets a 1.5-litre unit. The petrol version gets the option of a 5-speed manual or a CVT automatic gearbox, the diesel version gets only the 5-speed manual gearbox.

Amaze Petrol

The 1198cc petrol engine of the Amaze makes a maximum power of 86.7 bhp at 6000 rpm and a peak torque of 109 Nm at 4500 rpm. This is the same engine that powers the outgoing version. ARAI has rated the fuel economy for the manual version at 17.8 kmpl. This engine with CVT gearbox churns out 88.7bhp of power and a peak torque of 110Nm. Also, it returns better mileage than its manual counterpart by giving away 18.1 kmpl. The petrol unit is typically Honda in its refinement and is rev happy. Low end torque delivery is not bad and the city driving is effortless. On the highways, the motor feels at home in triple digit speeds and gets vocal, though we like it.

Amaze Diesel

The 1498 cc diesel engine of the Amaze got all of us talking and being the first diesel for Honda in our country, it’s not surprising. The smallest diesel in Honda’s history pumps out 99 bhp at 3600 rpm and a maximum torque of 200 Nm at 1750 rpm. As far as the engine response goes, the petrol and diesel engines are as extreme as they get. While petrol Hondas love to be revved hard and are about the top end power delivery, this 1.5-litre diesel unit has been tuned for low end torque delivery.

The Amaze feels very driveable in low speeds at higher gears and it is that driveability that sets apart the engine from the competition, making the city driving in a diesel effortless. The turbo lag is minimal but the NVH levels of the diesel pot leaves a lot to be desired. The Amaze diesel doesn’t want to be left behind on the highways and feels at ease on high speeds and inclines.

Ride and Handling

Honda Amaze gets the conventional Mc-Pherson strut to the front and torsion beam to the rear. The softly sprung suspension is good for the ride quality while the handling is very neutral, neither inspiring nor dull. The steering is light aiding in city traffic while on the highways, it puts on weight enough for some direct feedback but not sharp enough. The braking duties are well managed by the Amaze without losing our confidence.


Honda India has announced that the features like dual front airbags along with ABS and EBD will be available as optional from the base variant itself. At the same time, it claimed that these optional trims will be available for sale from May this year. The safety features of Honda Amaze include front dual airbags, engine immobilizer, pre-tensioner seat belts with load limiters, WAVE key, ACE body structure and ABS with EBD.


The 2016 Honda Amaze is now on offer in four variants - E, S, SX and VX. 

The E is the entry level variant that is offered with all basic essential features like electric power steering, AC with heater, digital AC controls, front and rear power windows, Day/Night inside rear view mirror and central locking.
The S is the next-in-line variant that comes with extra set of features like keyless entry, driver seat height adjuster, power adjustable ORVMs, rear seat center armrest with cup holders, accessory socket and an advanced music system with with AM/FM, MP3, USB & Aux-in support, steering mounted audio controls.

The SX variant on the other hand gets an all new 3D speedometer with multi-information display. It also has outside temperature display, cruising range display, power foldable ORVMs, turn indicators on ORVMs and much more. 

The VX is the top variant that offers alloy wheels, driver seat back pocket, front fog lamps and heat absorbing front windscreen. 


The 2016 Honda Amaze has drastically improved over its outgoing model, thanks to the refreshing updates to its styling and features. Perhaps it is the first compact sedan to come with a CVT gearbox that enhances the overall engine performance and driving experience. Though the diesel engine could have been bit more refined on the NVH levels, the Amaze comes off as a good package to drive around comfortably. However, as Volkswagen Ameo’s launch is just around the corner, it would be wise to wait for some more time to make a right choice.
