Engine & Transmission

The sedan is available in both petrol and diesel engine options - 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol and 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel. The 1198cc, 1.2-litre petrol unit produces a maximum power of 86.7bhp at 6000rpm with a peak torque of 109Nm at 4500rpm.

Performance and Handling

Both the engines are highly-refined and rev-happy. But, the diesel engine is quite noisy. High speed stability is excellent. Power delivery is linear. Ride and handling are typically like other Honda cars models. Suspension is agile, especially the rear one, and steering is light, too.

Features like front dual SRS airbags, ABS with EBD and front seat belt pre-tensioner with load limiter are available only on the top-variant.

Verdict

The Honda Amaze is an overall great package with sporty design, spacious interior and the most frugal diesel engine.

Competition

Honda Amaze Vs Hyundai Xcent

The Amaze, booted version of the Brio, is a well-proportioned and stylish sub-4 meter. It’s quite spacious from inside, and has a decent quality material. Hyundai Xcent looks attractive from the front end, but its rear styling is a bit odd. However, it offers best-in-class interior with lots of comfort-enhancing features. Honda’s compact sedan is more powerful than the Xcent. But the Xcent is a better car to drive on city and is more comfortable than its rival.

Pros

  • Exterior styling
  • Spacious interior
  • Fuel efficiency
  • ABS with EBD

Cons

  • Noisy diesel engine
