Honda Amaze: 5 Reasons Why It Leaves You Amaze-d
The Amaze offers more bang for your buck than any other car in its class. Here’s how.
The perfect sedan holds different meanings for different people. For some, it signifies a fun to drive, uber-stylish, and powerful car while for others, it means a car with low ownership cost, proven reliability, comfortable cabin, large boot space, and high safety. Few cars can bridge this divide as clinically as the Honda Amaze. Not only is it stylish and powerful but also gets a rich feature list, spacious cabin and boot, and class-leading safety. Here are 5 reasons why the bestselling Honda car in India should sit in your garage.
1) Design Screams Premium
The Honda Amaze is by far the most premium-looking sedan in its segment. The Amaze’s fascia is a great example where the long and raised bonnet gels beautifully with the chrome grille and those broad headlamps. View the sedan from the side and it’s hard not to be taken in by the neat proportions and that elegant character line running across the car’s length. The rear is again signature Honda with tail lamps extending onto the boot and a stylish bumper. Overall, the Honda Amaze looks like it is a car from a segment above.
2) Classy Interior
The Honda Amaze’s interior picks up where the exterior left off. It oozes a premium feel the moment you step inside. Honda has also smartly used a dual-tone finish in the Amaze’s interior. While the beige finish amplifies the cabin’s airy and warm feel, blacked-out elements like the dash, chunky three-spoke steering wheel, and gear shift console lend a degree of sportiness. The Amaze’s cabin also gets a bit of techno-cred with the Digitpad 2.0, a 7-inch super-responsive touchscreen infotainment system that gets Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
Your family and friends too wouldn’t be complaining inside the Amaze as it can easily accommodate three adults at the rear. You’ll also have no trouble hauling monthly groceries or a week’s luggage for your family in the Amaze thanks to a 420-litre boot, the largest in its segment.
3) Powerful But Thrifty Engines
The Amaze’s premium quotient is underlined by BS6 petrol and diesel engines that offer class-leading power and fuel efficiency while reducing carbon emissions. The 1.2-litre BS6 petrol Amaze has a fuel efficiency figure of 18.6kmpl (ARAI claimed) despite producing a healthy 90PS and 110Nm. On the other hand, the 1.5-litre BS6 diesel Amaze produces a segment-leading 100PS of power and 200Nm of torque while returning 25kmpl (ARAI claimed). These stupendous figures mean the BS6 Honda Amaze offers the most powerful performance with the best balance of fuel efficiency.
In addition to being wallet-friendly, the Amaze is also more environment-friendly courtesy of its BS6 petrol and diesel engines. The latter, a 1.5-litre i-DTEC engine, makes Amaze the first BS6-compliant diesel model from Honda in India. This has also made the company among a handful to offer BS6 diesel engine at this price point.
Much of the credit for that goes to Honda’s advanced exhaust gas after-treatment system with NSC (NOx Storage Catalyst) and DPF (Diesel Particulate Filter), which helps minimise the emission of harmful particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxide (NOx) in diesel engines. Honda has further employed an original Silver Thin Coated DPF (STC-DPF) in the 1.5-litre BS6 i-DTEC diesel engine, reducing PM combustion time by 40 per cent compared to the conventional DPF.
4) Premium Safety Equipment Comes Standard
Honda considers yours and your loved ones’ safety paramount, which is why it bundles a host of safety equipment with the Amaze as standard. This includes ABS, EBD (Electronic Brake Distribution), dual front airbags, front seatbelt reminder, rear parking sensors, adjustable headrests with whiplash protection, and ISOFIX points for mounting a child seat, making the Honda Amaze among the safest cars in its segment.
5) Bulletproof Reliability
Honda cars in India are known for their bulletproof reliability. The Amaze carries forward this legacy and will keep ticking along for years to come thanks to its superb build quality, reliable powertrain, and overall fit and finish. Moreover, the peace and satisfaction that comes with owning a Honda Amaze is also bolstered by the fact that the company has a comprehensive service network across India. When you combine that with the superb fuel efficiency offered by the BS6 petrol and diesel engines, it becomes clear why the Honda Amaze family in India is 3.9-lakh strong since inception and welcomes over 5,000 new members to its fold every month.
Are You Ready to be Amaze-d?
Whether it is livening up your daily commutes or moving people and luggage in utter comfort on weekend getaways and vacations, the Honda Amaze is a real delight to drive around and be driven in. Its premium looks make it the perfect car to arrive in while its safety equipment wouldn’t look out of place in a higher-segment sedan. The BS6 engines too have lost none of their power in the process of becoming more environment-friendly. Add in the spectacularly low cost of ownership and you simply can’t help but get Amaze-d!
