The Honda Amaze facelift will continue to be powered by the 1.2L VTEC and 1.5L DTEC engines.

The Honda Amaze facelift spotted here is not the top-end V or VX variant as it lacks alloy wheels, in all possibility its likely the mid-level S or SV variant. At the front, designers have retained the Brio-borrowed headlights, but have given the compact sedan a chrome-rich grille and a new front bumper with redesigned foglight enclosures which resemble the Mobilio’s to some extent.

The side body panels remain untouched, though the rear could see minor changes with respect to the taillights, registration plate enclosure and bumper.

Honda is upgrading the dashboard on the Brio-series vehicles to a more premium looking one with added features.

Responding to feedback, Honda is likely to give the Amaze facelift a fresh dashboard borrowed from the Honda BR-V and 2016 Honda Mobilio (which was launched in the Indonesian market recently). The new design of the dashboard brings automatic climate control (a feature which wasn’t present in the Brio-series), a conventional instrument cluster derived from the more expensive Jazz and a touchscreen AVN system.

The powertrain of the Honda Amaze facelift is unlikely to see any major updates. The compact sedan is powered by a 1.2-liter i-VTEC petrol engine or a 1.5-liter i-DTEC diesel engine. The petrol receives the option of 5-speed manual and automatic transmissions, whereas the diesel is solely available with a manual gearbox.
