Should You Buy Honda Amaze Petrol Or Diesel?

With the Amaze manual transmission, the km-to-breakeven is quite high at well above 1 lakh kilometres. While the 1.2L petrol engine offers acceptable performance, even if you factor in the higher torque output of the diesel engine, the km-to-breakeven figure still remains quite high and we cannot not recommend buying the Amaze diesel over the petrol variants.

For automatic buyers, the km-to-breakeven figure is even higher because of the lower mileage of the Amaze diesel CVT. Moreover, you also get lower power and torque than the diesel manual variant. So, we strongly recommend not buying the the Amaze diesel automatic over the petrol automatic variants.
