The Honda Amaze facelift will continue using the 1.2-liter i-VTEC petrol and 1.5-liter i-DTEC diesel engines. The petrol engine is good for 88 PS and 109 Nm of torque and comes paired to 5-speed manual and automatic transmissions, whereas the diesel generates 100 PS and 200 Nm of torque and is matched to a 5-speed manual unit.
