After much waiting, Honda has its first diesel offering in India, the Amaze. This also happens to be Honda's first sub 4-metre offering here as well. The Amaze goes head on against the Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire.
Powering the Amaze is a new made-for-India 1.5-litre diesel engine that makes 98.6 bhp of peak power. Apart from the diesel engine, the Amaze also comes with the same 1.2-litre petrol engine we see in the Brio as well. The diesel is available with a 5-speed manual transmission while the patrol adds the option of a 5-speed automatic transmission as well. Though it's based on the Brio, it's got a longer wheelbase, so you can bet there's a lot more interior space as well.
The Amaze is available in four variants E, EX, S and VX with prices as follows:
E - Rs 4.99 Lakh
EX - Rs 5.24 Lakh
S - Rs 5.62 Lakh
S Automatic - Rs 6.62 Lakh
VX - Rs 6.6 Lakh
VX Automatic - Rs 7.50 Lakh
E - Rs 5.99 Lakh
EX - RS 6.24 Lakh
S - Rs 6.67 Lakh
VX - RS 7.60 Lakh
