Honda India has launched an anniversary special edition of Honda AMAZE in India to mark the first anniversary of this compact sedan. The car had proved loyal to the company's expectations in the initial days of launch itself and had been selling successfully throughout the past year.This special edition AMAZE comes with many cosmetic upgrades like front , side, and rear under-spoiler, trunk spoiler, door visors and exhaust pipe finisher. And to make this special edition stand out of the regular models, it gets a special logo indicating the special package. So all these have made the car look more young and sporty.
Changes don't localize on the exteriors. In the inside, this car gets new upholstery and a premium looking wooden finish panel on the dashboard. However, under the hood ,everything is same as the regular model. This car is powered by the same 1.2 L i-VTEC engine producing 88 PS of power and 109NM of torque coupled to a 5 speed manual and automatic transmissions. And the diesel model is powered by the same 1.5 L i-DTEC Earth dreams motor as in the outgoing model. This motor produces 100 PS power and 200 Nm torque.and is paired to a 5 speed manual transmission. This diesel model also bears the credit of one of the most fuel efficient sedans in India and the most fuel efficient one in its segment (25.8 kmpl).
The AMAZE was the first Honda to come with a diesel engine. A giant brand like Honda with a diesel engine at such a tempting price !- it was far too appealing for the Indians. Thus it was just another piece of cake for this compact sedan to lure the Indian customers. Thus Honda sold over 80000 units across the sub-continent in the first year of its debut itself.
The Anniversary Edition bears a price tag of
- VX- 7.08 Lakhs (P) 7.91 Lakhs(D)
- S- 6.07 Lakhs(P) 7.04 Lakhs(D)
