Honda Amaze facelift: what’s new on the outside?
The most notable updates on the Honda Amaze facelift are concentrated on the exterior. The Amaze will get a new front grille that is sleeker than before and gets two additional horizontal chrome strips at the bottom. The fog lamp housing on the bumper has also been revised and even gets new chrome garnishes.
The most important exterior update is reserved for the top-spec VX trim, which now gets automatic LED projector headlamps with integrated LED DRLs and LED front fog lamps. It also gets new chrome door handles and 15-inch diamond cut, dual-tone alloy wheels.
At the rear, the Amaze facelift will come with new C-shaped LED tail-lights, along with new chrome garnishes and reflectors on the rear bumper.
Honda Amaze facelift: what’s new on the inside?
On the inside, while the design and layout will remain identical to the pre-facelift model, Honda has spiced things up with new silver accents on the dashboard and on the steering wheel; it also contrasts well with the black and beige interior theme. Another major addition is a new leather surround for the gear lever on the manual variants.
Other updates to the interior of the Honda Amaze facelift include the addition of front map lamps, new chrome finish for the AC vent knobs, dust and pollen filter and new inside lining on the trunk lid. The top-spec VX trim also exclusively gets new beige seat fabrics with stitching.
Honda Amaze facelift: engine and gearbox
There will be no changes under the hood, which means that the Amaze facelift will continue with the same engine and gearbox options of its predecessor. This includes a 90hp, 110Nm, 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine that comes mated to either a 5-speed manual or a CVT automatic gearbox. The diesel engine, meanwhile, produces 100hp and 200Nm of torque from a 1.5-litre unit when paired with a 5-speed manual gearbox, and 80hp and 160Nm of torque when coupled with a CVT automatic gearbox. The diesel-CVT combination of the Amaze is unique and is something that its competitors do not offer.
Currently, Honda India sells the City and Amaze sedans, the Jazz hatchback and the WR-V compact crossover.Honda is also preparing for thelaunch of theCity hybridthis year, but a timeframe for that model is yet to be revealed. Going forward, Honda is planning to introduce anall-new midsize SUVbased on the City’s platform by 2023.
