Honda Cars India Ltd. (HCIL) is overwhelmed as their débutante diesel car in the country – Honda Amaze crosses the 1 lakh sales milestone. This makes it the fastest Honda car in its Indian history which crossed the 1 lakh sales mark (since April 2013, just 16 months!). Amaze brought the most fuel efficient diesel in the country with an efficiency tag of 25.8km/l. It even enjoyed the tag of most fuel efficient car in the country for few months after it was acquired by its own sibling City!
Delighted, Mr. JnaneswarSen, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd commented, “This is a very proud moment for us. Honda Amaze has witnessed great success in the Indian market and the 1 lakh sales milestone only validates its strong presence. Honda Amaze has been a game changer in its segment and has enabled HCIL to reach out to a whole new set of customers experiencing the joy of owning and driving a Honda car. Honda entered the diesel car segment with the Amaze and we would like to thank our customers for the confidence they have showed in us and their support that has enabled the brand to grow from strength to strength.”
The compact sedan is offered in 12 variants and comes with both manual and automatic transmission (petrol). The highlight of the Amaze is the 1.5 i-DTEC diesel churning out 98bhp and 200Nm of torque mated to a five speed manual transmission. The Amaze petrol is powered by a Brio derived 1.2 liter i-VTEC. On the safety front, Amaze gets ABS as standard across all the variants.
