Honda Amaze Review

Overview

Introduction



Honda Amaze is the car that started a new phase for Honda in India. The diesel phase to be precise. The compact sedan was the first car to introduce  the iDTEC motor to the market. Though Honda has been producing pretty good cars, their petrol-only portfolio was losing to the diesel alternatives of the competition. Honda took their own sweet time to realize that the India is trotting towards the diesel way. But better late than never and we have the Honda Amaze.


Pros


1. Good looking compact sedan.


2. Power and performance.


3. One of the best fuel efficient diesel cars in the country.


4. Spacious rear cabin and boot space.


5. Honda’s reliability.


Cons


1. Very basic dashboard against the modern looking competition.


2. Not as feature rich as other cars in the segment.


3. Very poor diesel Amaze’s NVH levels.


Exterior



Earlier, compact sedans were seen as lazy unfinished makeovers off a hatchback (no thanks to the Tata Indigo and the Maruti Dzire), but the trend has changed now. Honda Amaze has lent way to most of the current good looking compact sedans such as Xcent, Aspire etc. The Amaze looks clean and modern with lots of lines and creases to attract younger audience. 



From the front, the Amaze looks identical to Honda Brio, on which it is based, except for a new twin slat chrome grille and mono colour front bumper. We would have liked the Brio’s contrasting black fog lamp inserts that offers some diversity. Everything else remains the same in the Amaze. 



To the side, the Amaze reflects the Brio image up to the B-pillars and then starts the obvious difference for the sedan sibling. There is no shortage in lines along the body for the Amaze. There are two lines of which one start at the front wheels and go till the rear windows and another that starts just below the end of the first line and merges into the tail lamp. The flared wheel arches and a deep waistline add more drama. 



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 is both stubby and edgy thanks to a large boot and a contoured rear bumper. The Amaze gets a fat line of chrome to satisfy the chrome aficionados. The rear glass area big enough to offer an uninterrupted view of the happenings behind but the high placement of the parcel shelf cuts into the view. 



The 14-inch alloys look good but the 175/65 tyres are too skinny for their own good. An upgrade to 185/60 should be a clever decision. 


Interiors


Inside of the Amaze gets a similar layout to that of the Brio. And we will continue to hear the customers complain about the basic and unconventional layout of the dashboard that we heard with the Brio. 



The interiors get a black-beige colour treatment with silver accents as found on Honda cars typically. But apart from the dashboard design, you can’t complain much about anything else. The build quality is good and the materials used inside are nice to look and feel for a compact sedan. 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. 



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 instrument cluster gets a orange backlight that is on always but the basic MID is not a flattering unit with just one trip meter and missing some default features like distance to empty. 



The centre console gets a 2-DIN music system with MP3, USB and Aux-in support but no CD support. You can opt for a touchscreen AV navigation system though in the VX(O) variant now. The brown finish for the centre console looks badly out of place. 



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 than the 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. 


Performance


Honda Amaze is available with a choice of a 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. While the petrol gets the option of a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic gearbox, the diesel version gets only the 5-speed manual gearbox.
Amaze Petrol



The 1198 cc petrol engine of the Amaze makes a maximum power of 87 bhp at 6000 rpm and a peak torque of 108 Nm at 6000 rpm. This is the same engine that powers the Brio. ARAI has rated the fuel economy for the manual version at 18 kmpl and for the automatic at 15.5 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 long as the engine responses go, 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. 


Safety


The safety features of Honda Amaze include front dual airbags, engine immobiliser, pre-tensioner seat belts with load limiters and ABS with EBD. 


Variants


Honda Amaze will be available in six variants - E, EX, S, SX, VX and VX (O). Remember all the diesel variants of the Amaze get ABS with EBD as standard (for some bizarre reasons, petrol variants don’t).


The E is the most basic variant but you do get front chrome grille, rear micro antenna, body colour bumpers, power steering, AC with heater, front and rear power windows, Day/Night inside rear view mirror and engine immobiliser. 


EX variant adds body colour door handles and ORVMs, tachometer, 1DIN Audio with AM/FM, MP3, USB & Aux-in support and front speakers.


The S variant would be one of the top selling variants with front/Rear mudguards, keyless entry, driver seat height adjust, electric ORVMs, rear seat centre armrest, 2 DIN Integrated Audio with AM/FM, MP3, USB & Aux-in support, steering mounted audio controls, front and rear speakers and chrome rings on air vents.


With the SX, you get turn indicator on ORVMs, rear defogger, electric foldable ORVMs, front dual airbags and front seat belt pre-tensioner with load limiter. 


The VX is the top variant that offers alloy wheels, front fog lamps, silver inside door handles and beige floor carpeting. 


If you want to add some colour and drama to your dashboard, the VX (O) gives you a 15.7cm Touch Screen Audio Visual Navigation with DVD/CD, Bluetooth, USB, Aux-in, i-pod, MP3, FM/AM support. 


Verdict


Being the first diesel ever from Honda in India, Honda Amaze has a lot on its shoulders and it has carried the weight quite good. 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.

  • Updated Honda Amaze will have these Interiors!
    Posted On | January 20, 2016 | 4327 Views
    Honda Amaze was launched in India around halfway through 2013, and is due for a mid-life update, sometime this year. Like Mobilio, Amaze also got criticised for its bland interiors and lacks few features like auto climate control. Honda has tried to fulfill all this with the updated Mobilio in Indonesia recently and it will also be launched in India, soon. It is obvious that the new dashboard will also be shared with Amaze facelift. Moreover, the Brio facelift, which is also expected to make an appearance this year, might also borrow this dashboard.
