The Honda Amaze is a simple and inexpensive car designed specifically for the Indian market. The second-generation sedan made its debut here in 2018, the cars are produced at a local plant. According to Indian laws, Amaze with a length of less than four meters falls into a preferential tax category, so the demand is good: before the pandemic, it was possible to sell 68 thousand of these four-door cars annually. Now it’s time for a planned restyling, which turned out to be quite easy.
Honda Amaze has found a new radiator grill, redesigned bumpers and other wheels. The most serious improvements have been made to the optics: the taillights are now diode starting from the “average” configuration, and the top version also has LED headlights and foglights. The sedan was also given additional chrome decor: now it adorns the bumpers and door handles.
The interior is decorated in a similar way – there is more chrome and silver. But there are no other changes. A media system with a seven-inch screen, as before, is only in the top version, and the rear sofa has only small “bumps” instead of full-fledged headrests.
The mechanical part of the model will not undergo changes, so the updated Honda Amaze will be available with the same petrol and diesel engines. The petrol unit of the sedan has a working volume of 1.2 liters and is set to 89 hp and 110 Nm of torque. The diesel power unit develops 99 hp and 200 Nm of torque, and also has a working volume of 1.5 liters. Among the gearboxes, buyers will be able to choose from a five-speed manual or continuously variable automatic transmission.
