Honda Amaze PicturesBesides, premium looking and intelligently designed exteriors, now at your service will be astonishing and well-balanced interiors of Honda Amaze sedan. The interiors expected to be well spiced up and generous, though one cannot expect this airiness, while gazing at the compact exteriors from outside. The rear row, as per reports from Thailand, is capable to seat three, all thanks to very-low central tunnel, which is such an awesome thing, making life so easy at the back. Here good head room and better leg room is assured, against cramped in arch rival Maruti Swift Dzire sedan. Nevertheless, as per industry experts, the India specific under 4-meter Honda Amaze will also share similar space, but will compromise a bit when it comes to boot space. The seats are cozy with large centre arm-rest and courteously reclined.

On the front part the cabin is bound to borrow things from Honda Brio, and it does, the elegance at dashboard looks very familiar. Whereas the plastic used at the central console and glove box is acceptable, considering the low-cost mass segment vehicle Honda Amaze. The front seats are projected to remain same as seen in the sibling offering sensible comfort to the driver and co passenger, while there are chances of 2/4-way adjustable driver’s seat. Also the chrome accentuated 3-spoke steering wheel with leather wrapped gear shift knob will add to the premiumness to the dual tone Honda Amaze interiors.

Honda Amaze Driving and Handling

Honda Amaze PicturesAs the name goes, Amaze, it is definitely amaze us with its well versed capabilities in the driving and handling department as City, Jazz and Brio has been doing till date. The best part with the drivability will be the tested 1.2L petrol engine that rests under the hood of Honda Brio. But interesting is the newbie 1.5L diesel IDTEC, it is way premature to say anything at this point, albeit it is very capable.

The diesel and petrol motors is tweaked for better results in the city stop-go traffic alongside decent road plantation at higher speeds on the highways. The refinement, the electric tilt-adjustable power steering and minimal turning radius cames very handy while driving. The outcome of ‘Earth Dream Technology’ project i.e. i-DTEC powertrain, and the engineering expertise of Honda together will take diesel competition to next levels the compact sedan segment.

 

Honda Amaze Conclusion

Honda Amaze PicturesThe launch of Honda Amaze sedan in India is another class leading effort by Honda, as after decades of refined petrol powertrains, it’s time to taste diesel from Japanese engineering. The unearthing of ‘i-DTEC’ diesel motor came with ‘Earth Dreams Technology’ project that took couple of laborious years by mechanical engineers of Japan. The diesel engine definitely promises fine-tuning alongside swift drivability across city drives.

Moreover, with its under 4 meter dimensions Honda Amaze sedan offers more space and practicality against competitors Maruti Swift Dzire and Tata Indigo CS. Here, the car buyers won’t expect Honda to do a Toyota that came with a premium badge and offered shoddy material in the form of Toyota Etios series. Though the looks, the dimensions and stance is very upright and ideal, as seen in Thailand launch, the only matter of concern will be mileage and space inside the India-bound Honda Amaze. Nevertheless, if petrol 1.2L i-VTEC yields out the exiting economy numbers of Honda Brio hatch i.e. 18 kmpl it is more than enough. However, if the gossipmongers in the industry are to be believed, the Honda Amaze diesel mileage is as good as 25.8 kmpl, if this comes true, it surpasses diesel-mileage-king Maruti Dzire in a jiffy, setting up a new benchmark on cloud nine.
