Written by Nizam Shaikh

Honda will soon be introducing the new-generation Amaze in the Indian market. Reports suggest that the brand is currently working on the all-new Amaze which is likely to be larger than the current-ten car. The compact sedan is also likely to come with the latest technology and features. Also, the new Amaze is likely to come with revamped exteriors as well as interiors.

Honda Amaze to Use City/Elevate Platform?

According to sources, the third generation Amaze is likely to use the same platform as the Honda City and Elevate SUV. However, the brand is likely to shorten its wheelbase to bring the compact sedan to the sub-4metre overall length. By using the City/Elevate platform, Honda will be able to streamline production and increase the economies of scale.

Honda Amaze – Engine Options

Under the hood, the new-generation Amaze is likely to get the same 1.2-litre petrol motor that produces 90 Hp of power and 110 Nm of torque. The engine is likely to come with the same transmission options as it is. The Honda Amaze is likely to offer a 5-speed manual or a CVT automatic gearbox. Honda is not likely to bring the diesel engine on the Amaze.

Honda Amaze – Launch Date and Competition

Chances are that Honda will launch the new-generation Amaze during this year’s festive season. Upon launch, the next-generation Honda Amaze will compete with the Maruti Suzuki Swift Dzire, Tata Tiago and the Hyundai Aura.
