Honda India, the domestic arm of Japanese car maker, seems all set to introduce its much awaited Amaze sedan in the Indian auto market. Interested buyers can now book the upcoming model at the authorised dealerships of Honda India by paying an amount of Rs. 10,000. Industry experts believe that Honda Amaze will make its grand entry somewhere in April in the Indian auto market. However, it must be noted that the auto maker has not revealed the exact pricing and other details of the upcoming Amaze sedan yet.
Interestingly, Amaze will be Honda’s first sedan in the Indian auto market, which will come equipped with a diesel engine. According to reports, the model will feature a 1.5 litre i-DTEC diesel engine, which will have an enthralling output. With the launch of its new sedan in the country, the auto maker is looking ahead to revive its sales and lost grounds. Moreover, the upcoming model is reported to be the cheapest sedan from the Indian portfolio of Honda Cars, as of now.
On the launch of a new model, the Senior Vice President, Marketing and Sales of Honda Cars India, Jnaneshwar Sen was quoted as saying, “The newly developed iDTEC engine belongs to the new generation powertrain technology Earth Dreams Technology that realises both excellent driving performance and fuel economy at a high level. Amaze will be the first car from Honda to sport this new diesel engine. We feel that the contemporary style of Amaze and all the core values of Honda (durability, quality and reliability) will appeal to the growing base of entry level sedan customers.”
The model is anticipated to come equipped with a number of comfort features, which will add to the convenience of its passengers at an economical price. The rumour mill has stated that the 2013 Amaze will sport a number of safety features like dual airbags and Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with Electronic Brake-force Distribution (EBD). Besides, height adjustable driver's seat, sporty alloy wheels, rear defogger, turn indicator equipped ORVMs and arm rest at rear row is also expected to be packed within the model.
Reportedly, the upcoming model from Honda is based on the designing platform of Brio hatchback, which has carved a niche in the hearts of Indian buyers. Industry experts believe that post launch, Amaze sedan will deliver a direct competition to the likes of Maruti Suzuki Swift DZire, Toyota Etios and Tata Indigo eCs, among others.
