Honda Amaze comes with all-new design language with features like LED DRLs and 15-inch alloys

In terms of exterior design, the Honda Amaze is completely different as compared to the first generation. While the design is a little conservative, buyers might appreciate the balanced look the new car has. While you do get features like daytime running lights or 15-inch alloy wheels on the top of the line variant, the Amaze loses out on the likes of LED headlamps or even projector headlamps. Diamond cut alloy wheels like the one on the City could have made it a nicer package too.

Honda Amaze's cabin has also been extensively updates with new styling and features

On the interior though, the new Honda Amaze is much nicer as compared to its predecessor. It now gets a larger 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, called Digipad-2 with both Apple Carplay and Android Auto. It also gets a start-stop button, automatic climate control and as we mentioned earlier, the CVT variants get paddle shifters too. There is also more space in the cabin as compared to earlier and that is mainly due to a longer wheelbase. The new Honda Amaze also gets a fold-down central armrest for the rear passengers and rear AC vents.

New Honda Amaze diesel CVT makes less power and torque than the manual version

The more popular diesel, on the other hand, gets the tried and tested Earth Dreams Honda diesel 1.5-litre turbocharged engine. While mated to the 5-speed manual gearbox, the engine makes 99 bhp of peak power and 200 Nm of peak torque. The diesel manual also returns an impressive 27.4 kmpl according to ARAI test figures. Honda also offers the diesel Amaze with an automatic option. Unlike the Ameo (DSG) or the Dzire (AMT) however, the Amaze gets a CVT gearbox on the diesel too. That said, in order to ensure reliability, Honda has had to reduce both power and torque on the engine. While mated to the CVT gearbox, the 1.5-litre unit makes 79 bhp of peak power and 160 Nm of peak torque. The fuel economy for the new Honda Amaze diesel automatic is 23.8 kmpl.
