Honda-AmazeHonda Amaze will receive its long awaited facelift as the company launched its latest model in Delhi on Thursday, priced at Rs. 5.29 lakh.

The Amaze 2016 has received minor exterior improvements, new dual-tone interior and the first-in-class CVT gearbox.

Apart for the new bumpers, single slate grille in chrome and revised tail-lamps, the new Honda Amaze 2016 looks more or less similar to the pre-facelift version. The sub-compact sedan’s cabin, however, looks quite different with a new dual-done scheme, new instrument panel and audio-video navigation with touchscreen. The new Amaze’s interior seems to have taken its inspiration from the Honda Mobilio.

Under the hood, this Honda Amaze facelift is powered by the same 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine tuned to produce 87bhp and a peak torque of 109Nm, while diesel power comes from the 1.5-litre i-DTEC motor tuned for 99bhp of power and peak torque of 200Nm. The fuel efficiency figure for the petrol variant stands at 17.8 km/l (MT) and 18.1 km/l (CVT), while the diesel returns a fuel economy of 25.8 km/l. Transmission options include the same 5-speed manual and a first in segment CVT unit.

According the company, the CVT is tuned to provide seamless power without compromising on fuel efficiency. As far as safety features are concerned, the Amaze will come with dual airbags as an option from the base variant. However, Honda mentions that Dual airbags will be introduced as a standard feature in all of Honda’s models which will be launched from FY 16-17.
