In Mumbai the price of Amaze starts at Rs 5.1 lakh while the diesel model is priced at Rs 6.18 lakh. This is just Rs 10k and Rs 18k more than the price in Delhi. Why Honda is bullish about the sedan is because of many reasons. First, it is priced competitively. Another factor is that it is a high mileage car and has class leading space inside. Another important factor is that it was the lack of diesel engine in Honda cars that detained it from coming into fore. Now that there is a car with a diesel heart, it seems that there will nothing keeping it back from escalating to the fourth or fifth pedestal in the country.
