New Honda Amaze to be launched today at expected price of INR 4.99 Lac - 7.49 Lac, ex-showroom, New Delhi

Honda Cars India would be very much excited today - as after a long wait, the day, 11th April 2013 is here. We will today witness Honda's first diesel engine in a new car within a new segment for Honda - "Amaze" will bring all within itself for you. The car is expected to be priced at INR 4.99Lac for the base petrol variant and INR 7.49 Lac for the highest diesel variant.

Honda's Amaze will be the first car from Honda's stable to have a diesel heart with a newly designed all Aluminium engine, ofcourse a  new car and a sub 4 meter sedan which will straightaway take on Maruti Suzuki's Dzire in India.

The newly designed 1.5L i-Dtec engine from Honda is 1.5L with an output power of 100 PS at an amazing fuel efficiency of 25.8 Kmpl. This makes it most powerful diesel engine with the highest fuel efficiency for this class of engine. Mahindra's Quanto too carries a 1.5L 100PS engine, but nothing can match Honda's fuel efficiency. The major reason for Honda to achieve such a spectacular figure of fuel efficiency is by making an all aluminium engine which helped in reducing the overall weight of the car and a high swirl cylinder head which improves the combustion efficiency.  The piston features narrower and shorter piston skirts to reduce the frictional losses as well the weight. Another noteworthy feature is the thin nitrided crankshaft.

The Amaze launches in three variants – 1.5L diesel with 5-speed MT, 1.2L petrol with 5-speed MT and 1.2L petrol with 5-speed AT. The wheelbase of the Amaze is about 60mm longer that Brio. Despite measuring under four meters in overall length, thanks to a short front overhang, thinner seat backs and a pushed-in dashboard design, the Amaze has amazingly good rear knee room and 400 liters of boot space.

The prices mentioned for Honda's Amaze are the expected prices and stay tuned for the exact prices while Honda India announces the prices of their much awaited Dzire competitor.

Also read, Honda Amaze already sold 2552 units even before the launch.
