Get Ready for the Festive Launch of the Next-Gen Honda Amaze

Honda is preparing to introduce the next generation of its popular compact sedan, the Amaze, in India. Expected to make an appearance during the holiday season, the new model is expected to have many changes and enhancements over its predecessor. With its new platform, updated functionality, and redesigned design the upcoming Amaze seeks to redefine expectations for its market.

New Platform and Design

The upcoming Honda Amaze will be based on a platform shared with the City and Elevate models, albeit with modifications to suit its compact sedan dimensions. With the platform change, Honda hopes to maintain the Amaze below the important four-meter barrier while still providing the benefits of a single platform for the whole lineup. Design-wise, the new Amaze is expected to draw inspiration from larger Honda sedans, aligning it with the brand's global design language. The Amaze may stand out in the competitive compact sedan market due to this design strategy.

Upgraded Interior Features

Inside the cabin, the third-generation Amaze is likely to feature a revamped layout, potentially incorporating a larger touchscreen display similar to the one found in the Elevate. There should be a mix of modern and familiar elements on the inside due to common parts with other Honda vehicles. To further improve the driving experience the new Amaze may also come with better materials and comfort features.

Powertrain and Performance

Powering the new Honda Amaze will be the reliable 1.2-litre, four-cylinder, naturally aspirated petrol engine from the current model. This engine will be paired to either a CVT automatic gearbox or a 5-speed manual gearbox, producing 90 horsepower and 110 Nm of torque. With Honda's decision to move away from diesel engines in India, the new Amaze will be offered exclusively with the petrol powertrain. It is anticipated that by maintaining a balance between efficiency and performance this powertrain combination will satisfy the needs of urban commuters.

Launch Timeline and Price

Honda is set to launch the third-generation Amaze in India in the latter half of the year, coinciding with the festive Diwali season. The new Amaze is expected to be competitively priced, with an estimated starting price range of Rs. 7.94 lakh to Rs. 8.85 lakh (ex-showroom). The popular competitors Maruti Dzire, Hyundai Aura, and Tata Tigor will be up against the new Amaze when it launches. With the new Amaze Honda hopes to make a name for itself as a competitive small sedan by offering customers a new level of comfort, performance, and style.

A major improvement over the existing model, the future Honda Amaze is designed to increase market appeal. The upgraded Amaze with its new platform, improved functionality, and updated design, is expected to make a big impact on the Indian market. It is visible that Honda is dedicated to offering a competitive product in the market for compact sedans, and the upcoming Amaze is expected to be a key member of the range.
