Hi Team, Could u please share reviews about Amaze CVT in terms of manoeuvring, performance, mileage and after sales.
Performance and Handling - Overall, the CVT feels better in the city than the old Amaze AT. To begin with, the seamless power delivery to the wheels (which is typical of CVTs) and refined I-VTEC engine is incredibly relaxing within city limits. The Amaze CVT doesn't feel laggy and there is sufficient grunt to get you moving. The MT sibling offers only average torque levels, but since you don't have to play with the clutch & gear lever, you don't feel that deficiency. The response to throttle inputs is decent and the CVT is butter smooth in traffic. The Amaze does make for a great urban commuter. Club that with the light steering and moving about in the city becomes effortless.
Mileage - The CVT should provide acceptable fuel economy in the city as long as you maintain a light right foot. Honda has tuned the gearbox for the economy and it's very obvious from behind the wheel. The CVT moves to a higher ratio quickly. Even when you get off the accelerator, you'll notice its tendency to move up the gearing. The CVT's ARAI rating of 18.1 kmpl might be slightly higher than the MT, but don't let that misguide you. The only reason for that rating is the CVT's ability to cruise at high speeds at low rpms.
After Sale - Honda being the third largest car company in India does provide a good after sale services. You can buy the car without any hasitation. Rest, go ahead and take a test drive of the CVT model to have a better clarity on the performance & other aspects.
Hyundai Elantra vs Toyota Corolla Altis
Hyundai has decided to shake things up a little with the launch of the new generation Elantra. Toyota's Corolla Altis continues to be its biggest rival.
Thanks to aggressive pricing, the Elantra undercuts the Corolla Altis is terms of price. Most of the diesel variants of the Elantra are more expensive than those of the Corolla. However, it should be noted that Elantra's diesel engine is bigger and more powerful.
The new Hyundai Elantra comes with a 2.0-litre petrol and a 1.6-litre diesel engine. Both engines are more powerful and produce more torque than the ones that power the Toyota Corolla. Also, Hyundai offers the diesel Elantra with an optional automatic transmission, something the Corolla misses out on. Toyota Corolla Altis’1.4 L diesel is a bit too small for a car in this segment. While it does give the car a price advantage, it affects performance severely.
In comparison, the Altis Petrol fares much better than its diesel counterpart. However, the Elantra is still more powerful and produces more torque. Both cars can be had with either a 6-speed manual or an automatic transmission.
Most modern Hyundai's these days get very attractive exteriors and the new Elantra is no exception. Although, the Altis has now become a familiar face, it still looks very modern and quite appealing. It is worth mentioning that Toyota will launch a facelift of the Corolla Altis next year.
The next generation Elantra features a sportier look on the inside. Much like the exteriors, the interiors of the new car look more mature and less in your face than before. The Corolla Altis gets very stylish yet a highly functional cabin that is made up of high-quality materials. Its asymmetric layout looks very modern and is likely to age very well. Corolla Altis gets a dual tone black -beige colour theme.
While the base models skimp out on a lot of features, the top-end trims come packed with equipment. Toyota offers the Corolla Altis with only 2 airbags. Hyundai offers 6 airbags at least in the top-spec trims. Elantra also gets ventilated seats, which the Corolla doesn’t. Therefore, the Elantra is more feature rich than the Corolla Altis.
The biggest advantage the Toyota Corolla Altis had over the Hyundai Elantra was its price. With the launch of the new model, that advantage has all but disappeared. Also, in terms of engines, features, etc. the Elantra seems to be better than the Corolla Altis.
