The Japanese four wheeler maker, Honda has launched its all new 2018 Honda Amaze on 16 May 2018 in India. Our expert has done its test drive and now trying to explain its negative points an positive points. Here we have come up with the Honda Amaze review 2018 in India. Let’s start the review:
Honda Amaze Design and Looks
Honda’s compact sedan Amazon had many features in which the best spaces and mileage of diesel engines are big plus points. But the design was average, on the road, this car could not present itself apart. This is the biggest change in the new Honda Amaze. The new image design has been completely changed. Now this vehicle not only forces people to look back while running on the road but also its road presence has also increased due to its aggressive design. Especially when looking at the front, it looks like an SUV. Side and back profiles have also been given smart updates. The leg and the head room were also good before, for the last seat, three people get better spaces than before.
Honda Amaze Interior Design
The cabin experience in the last Amazon was quite disappointing – it was until the change came. The second generation Amaze is taking the head of this challenge. It takes a leaf from the design book of his elder siblings to give a unique statement. The face, depending on where you are standing, reflects BR-V or the city. Outside Stubby boots get dividing tail lamps which are inspired by the new agreement. The new Amazon looks bigger than the outgoing model. Although it is 15 mm and only 5 mm long, but flat hood and stubby come back together so that it can be made more important.
Inside, like the new CR-V, the vents and touchscreen sitting at the top of the dashboard jut out to give it a more technological look. Chunky steering wheel also seems like it could be borrowed from a large Honda. Drivers will appreciate the new, cleaner-looking device cluster, which has only two dials with MID at the center. A white rear headlight also makes it more pleasing.
The steering wheel feels great to catch and makes it very easy to feel right even while driving different three-dimensional profiles for the switch. However, the lazy finish of the plastic button is a little disappointing. The total dashboard design is simple if a little longer, the piano black band connects the premium price. Some irregular closed lines, especially around gloves, a very bright plastic panel on which USB ports are mounted, and hard plastic on the dash reduces the otherwise more attractive cabin experience.
Honda Amaze Features
If you look at features, then dual airbags and features like ABS-EBD are standard. This time in the Touchscreen Infomation Systems, features such as Android Auto and Apple Car Play have also been provided. Reverse parking sensors and cameras were also given which were not inbuilt in earlier models. There are also features like cruise control and pedal shifts. Suspension has also been better than before. Good combination of concert and control looks in this car.
Honda Amaze Engine, Power and Mileage
The car has two engine options like the first one. The 1.2 liter petrol engine gives the power of about 89 bhp and torque of 110 nm, but the company claims that the mileage has already increased 10 percent, now it is 19.5 kmpl. The 1.5 liter diesel engine also gives the torque of about 99 bhp and 200 nm torque as before, the mileage has been claimed 27.4 kmpl. There is also an option of automatic cvt gearbox with 5 speed manual with both engines.
Honda Amaze CVT Gear Box
CVT’s option with diesel has come for the first time. This is also the biggest feature of the new Amazon. Diesel engine with CVT gives 99 torque of power of 79 bhp and 160 nm instead of 99. This shortcoming surprised us, so we questioned it, Honda’s technical team said this has been done to co-ordinate the diesel engine with CVT technology. But when we test drive the diesel CVT Amazon, this automatic gearbox made the journey comfortable to such an extent that the lack of power was not felt. Eigh overtakes with the power of 79 bhp on the highway also. Overall, diesel CVT has given us a lot of influence. Even though the mileage here is reduced to 23.8 kmpl, but this variant is still best for us.
Honda Amaze Car Competitors
There are cars like Volkswagen Ameo, Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Tata Tigour and Zest, Hyundai Accent, Ford Espar in this segment but Dabadda is completely out of DZire. After the review of the new Amazon, we can say that Dwaroir has the power to give a tough challenge. A lot will depend on the price, especially if the price of the CVT variant is kept accurate, it can prove to be a big hit.
