Spied – Check out the rear seats of the Honda Amaze
As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I’m, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
Everyone in Honda India’s payroll have a reason to be excited as the Honda Amaze sedan is just around the corner.
Come April, Honda can finally offer customers a car which burns the cheaper fuel. The Brio based sedan, as we’ve said many times earlier, is the first diesel Honda to enter India.
The Japanese automaker known for its efficient and powerful petrol engines has been suffering in the Indian market due to the utter lack of diesel models. Sales of the once popular models like City, Civic and the Accord took a nosedive just because of that reason.
Honda has pinned very high hopes on the Amaze which is touted to turnaround the company’s fortunes and place it back in the front line. The good news is, the sub-four metre sedan promises to deliver.
Team-bhp.com’s forum member who goes by the name “RavenAvi” has managed to take photographs a demo car’s interior. It is a high-end petrol variant and from what we see, the space offered for the rear passengers is impressive considering that the car measures less than four metres in length.
The sense of space is further enhanced by a dual tone beige and brown upholstery. The door trims also get beige treatment and the inside door handles are accented in silver. The dashboard is a ditto of the Honda Brio’ and the seats have integrated headrests.
The 1.2-litre 87 bhp i-VTEC petrol engine is carried over from the Brio but the action hero would be the new 1.5-litre i-DTEC Earth Dreams diesel engine which also has its output in the vicinity of 90 bhp.
Are you excited to welcome the Amaze?
