The Honda Amaze is launching soon on August 18, 2021. The car will go on sale the same day and the bookings are already in progress.
The volume and reliability of the information coming in about the car are on the rise as we are getting closer to the official launch date. The latest bite of information confirms that the Amaze will continue with a diesel engine. More and more carmakers are starting to ditch diesel engines and focusing primarily on petrol engines. There’s some focus on the electric and CNG for buyers who want to keep the long-term ownership costs in check.
In the video, we see the i-DTEC badge on one of the car’s boot lids. Now, we know for sure that Honda are not ready to give up on the diesel engine just yet. The car will also probably carry over the transmission options with the diesel engine. So, we should get both the engines with manual as well as CVT automatic transmission options.
Honda recently revised the prices of the cars and the diesel models of the older Amaze and WRV got a massive price increase. With this increase, the diesel engine may look like an upgrade that’s not worth it for most buyers. Check out how many kilometres you’ll have to drive the Honda Amaze to recover the extra upfront cost difference.

Boot lid liner (NEW)
Segment Exclusive Feature for NEW Honda Amaze
The new Amaze will come with a boot lid liner. Even some of the bigger cars don’t get this feature. In the sub-4m sedan segment, none of the cars is available with a boot lid liner. The Tata Tigor was the first car in this segment which offered this feature but after the 2020 facelift update, Tata removed this liner. Therefore, the Amaze facelift will soon become the only car in the sub-4m sedan segment to offer this simple but unique feature to add a premium touch to the car.
