Honda will be launching the first major facelift of the second generation Amaze compact sedan on 18th August, 2021. The second generation Honda Amaze, which was launched in India, in 2018, is one of the top volume bringers for Honda in India.
With this new facelift, Honda will be refreshing the Amaze with a number of changes to make it look more relevant against the refreshed competition. Here are the 5 new amazing features which will be introduced in the new facelifted Honda Amaze:
- New headlamps – The new Honda Amaze does away with the old halogen headlamp setup with all new LED projector headlamps, which will be accompanied with new daytime running LEDs within the headlamp clusters only.
- New chrome highlights – To increase its premium appeal, Honda has added a few chrome highlights to the exterior of the Amaze. The front grille comes with two additional thin chrome strips across the grille, while the fog lamps too get chrome surrounds. In addition, the rear bumper gets chrome garnish and the outer door handles are finished in chrome as well.
- New machined alloy wheels – The current model gets 15-inch silver alloys in its top-spec trims. However, the new facelifted version will get new 15-inch multi-spoke machined alloy wheels in place of them.
- Revised rear view camera display – The Honda Amaze already has reverse camera with its display on the infotainment system screen. The new facelifted version will continue to have the same. However, this time around, the display will have three different view options – normal view (130 degree), wide view (180 degree) and top down view. All these views will feature directional guidelines for safe parking.
- Silver highlights in cabin – The new Honda Amaze will continue to have dual tone black and beige upholstery. The only change which will liven the cabin even more is the presence of silver accents on dashboard and door panels.
Except these five amazing visual enhancements, there will be no mechanical changes in the new Honda Amaze. The compact sedan from Honda will continue to be available with two different engine options – a 1.2-liter petrol engine (90 PS power/110 Nm torque) and a 1.5-liter diesel engine (100 PS power/200 Nm torque). Both the engine options will be offered with 5-speed manual and CVT gearbox options, with the diesel-CVT having revised performance numbers – 80 PS of power and 160 Nm of torque.
Like before, the new Honda Amaze will continue to compete with Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Hyundai Aura, Tata Tigor and Ford Aspire. The new Amaze will likely see a minor changes in the prices and variants, the details of which will be revealed on the day of the launch.
