    Honda Amaze line-up shrinks ahead of full model change
    Listen to this Article

    Honda had recently updated its entire line-up with some new standard safety features, including six airbags for City and Elevate, as well as seat belt reminders for all 5 seats for City, City Hybrid (e:HEV), Elevate, and Amaze. The update has also resulted in Amaze losing out on two of its variants - E and Elite Edition.
    1. Amaze to be offered in S, VX variants only
    2. Prices up by Rs 5,500 across both variants
    3. Next-gen Honda Amaze to debut by Diwali this year
     
    The Amaze Elite Edition was introduced during the festive period last year. Based on the top-end VX variant, the Amaze Elite Edition was equipped with additional features like a rear spoiler, an illuminated sidestep, an anti-fog film on the wing mirrors, and more. The special edition variant has now been discontinued, given that Honda possibly launched it as a limited-run model.
     
    The lineup has further shrunk with the discontinuation of the entry-level E variant, which was priced at Rs 7.20 lakh. Being sparsely equipped, the Amaze E was mostly purchased by fleet operators. However, it did not see much success there since its rivals Hyundai Aura, Maruti Dzire and Tata Tigor offer a factory-fitted CNG kit which is preferred by fleet operators.
     
    The Honda Amaze is now available in two variants - S and VX, priced at Rs 7.93 lakh and Rs 9.04 lakh respectively for the manual variants. The Amaze S CVT now costs Rs 8.83 lakh, while the top-end VX CVT is priced at Rs 9.86 lakh.
     

    Next-gen Honda Amaze debut this year

    Honda is readying the third generation of the Amaze for India, expected to debut by Diwali 2024. As per our sources, the next-gen Amaze will be based on the same platform as the City and Elevate, albeit with some modifications including a shorter wheelbase. Design for the updated sedan will likely be inspired by bigger Honda sedans sold abroad, while the cabin is also expected to be thoroughly upgraded.
     
    The next-gen Amaze will retain the current 1.2-litre, four-cylinder naturally aspirated petrol engine that puts out 90hp and 110Nm torque. The engine is available with a 5-speed manual transmission, and an optional CVT. The sedan will continue to face competition from Hyundai Aura, Tata Tigor, as well as the Maruti Suzuki Dzire which is also set to receive a generational update very soon.
