Honda has updated their popular small sedan, the Amaze, with a variety of upgrades in terms of exterior styling, interior upgrades, and a new infotainment system.

 

The updated Amaze remains unmistakably Honda, but in a package that is stylish, well specced, comfortable and better suited to the needs of the discerning market.

 

What’s new?

The most significant change to the updated model is a brand-new front grille, which replaces the previous solid wing version and blends in perfectly with the halogen headlight clusters to give the updated Amaze a fresher, more modern appearance.

 

The rear is now dominated by a revised bumper featuring a chrome ascent and LED taillights that give the Amaze a smarter, more grown-up look.

 

Inside story

The two-tone beige and black design of the upholstery is now a thing of the past, making way for a full black interior. This change is in line with market trends and enhances durability.

 

The gloss black piano detailing on the dashboard remains unchanged and now houses a sound system with FM/AM radio capability as well as MP3 and Bluetooth functionality.

 

Comfort models are now equipped with a seven-inch touchscreen infotainment system that incorporates a reverse parking camera as well as Android Auto and Apple CarPlay functionality.

 

Under the bonnet

A proven four-cylinder engine powers the new Amaze. The 1.2-litre unit is capable of 66kW at 6000rpm and 100Nm at 4 800rpm thanks to innovative technology such as Honda’s i-VTEC intelligent valve timing management system.

 

The Amaze Trend is only available with a five-speed manual gearbox while the Comfort model is available with a CVT transmission option too.

 

Small car, big on safety

Like its predecessor, the updated Amaze sedan boasts an extensive list of standard safety equipment including dual front airbags, inertia reel seatbelts front and rear, Isofix child seat anchors as well as ABS with EBD.

 

Pricing

All models are sold with a full five-year/200 000km warranty as well as a two-year/30 000km service plan.
