IAB reader experiences the Honda Amaze and comes away impressed


Shrawan Raja, I'm the Founder & CEO of IndianAutosBlog.com. I love teamwork and talking about cars.

A regular reader who wished to be called A.S. today was invited this month in his city to experience the Honda Amaze. Through an email, A.S. gives us a fantastic first look into Honda’s first diesel car for India including information that previously was unavailable in the public domain.

Here’s what A.S.’s note read –

Dear Shrawan,

I am regular follower of IAB.

Honda Brio Amaze

The purpose of writing this email to you is to share my amazing first hand experience with the Honda Amaze. I was unable to take pictures as the car was unveiled to me in a very confidential circumstance. The cars, both petrol and diesel will launch simultaneously.

I drove the car for a short distance and my god what a beauty it is! I drove the Earth Dreams oil burner, I was told that power will be around 90 PS giving the car a high power to weight ratio. Could not feel the torque fully but the VGT-equipped motor will easily produce 200 Nm. You cannot ask for any more grunt in this price range.

I could check out both the base variant and the top-end VX model. The cabin space is quite astounding considering that it is a 3,990 mm long car. No complaints on the fixed headrests as they are luxurious and much better than some adjustable headrests of cars in the sub-10 lakh range.

The top-end VX model is equipped with chrome tipped AC vents (manual aircon), chrome tipped inside door handles, standard music system from Brio, steering mounted audio controls, rear defogger, 14-spoke alloy wheels, fog lights, rear arm rests with cup holders, ORVM mounted indicators, ABS with EBD and dual airbags.

Honda has created amazing space inside the vehicle that’s true to the ‘man maximum machine minimum’ concept. Fit and finish is almost like the Brio. However the rear seat experience is far more comfortable and cozy than Brio. The base model is devoid of bells and whistles except ABS and EBD. Even the ORVM’s and the door handles are black on the low-end trim level!
