Next-gen Honda Amaze sedan will arrive in 2024

Written by Kanad Kalasur

Honda is working on the third-generation Amaze. This will be a global debut and is expected to be an evolution of the current Amaze. Back in 2021, Honda gave a mid-life refresh to the Amaze

3rd-Gen Honda Amaze : More details 

A new Honda SUV is also on the cards. This will be using an updated version of the current Amaze’s platform. Now, according to a media report, the same platform could underpin the 3rd-gen Amaze as well. While the Honda SUV is larger than 4m, the Amaze will continue to sit under the 4m length slab for tax benefits.

In terms of looks, the new Amaze could borrow styling cues for the elder siblings – Honda City or the Honda Accord. Even the 2nd-gen Amaze had its design inspired from the Accord of that time.

Coming to the insides, there will be revised layout as compared to the outgoing car. Expect a larger infotainment screen and Honda could use the existing parts bin for other interior bits and pieces.

Powertrain options on the 3rd-Gen Honda Amaze

The 1.2-litre NA engine is likely to continue. THis engine makes 90 HP and 110 Nm of peak torque. Honda is likely to pair this gearbox with either a 5-speed manual or a CVT gearbox. 

There will be no diesel on offer. However, Honda could surprise us by offered a CNG kit on the car. Previously, Honda used to offer a CNG variant of the Amaze for some time.

Honda Amaze 5-lakh milestone

Honda Amaze has recently breached the 5 lakh units mark. The car, presently in its second generation version, is a prime choice in India’s entry sedan segment. This is further asserted by the fact that Amaze is presently the largest-selling model for HCIL. The sedan accounts for more than 40 per cent of company sales. Being an India-centric product, the Made in India Amaze from Honda’s Tapukara plant in Rajasthan is also a much-loved product in the overseas market.
