In the entire B2 sedan segment, only the Hyundai Aura comes with a turbocharged petrol engine. The Aura’s power output and power-to-weight ratio are comparable to the Amaze, but as it is turbocharged, its torque output is significantly better than its rivals in the segment. When it comes to the non-turbo petrol engine powered cars in the segment, the Amaze’s torque:weight ratio is comparable with its rivals.

The Amaze petrol comes with a 5-speed manual transmission and CVT type automatic transmission option. In this segment, the Maruti Suzuki Dzire offers the best fuel efficiency, while the Amaze is one of the least fuel efficient cars.

Honda Amaze Petrol Variant-wise Features

What are the Features of 2020 Honda Amaze E Petrol?

The Amaze E variant with the petrol-manual powertrain is priced at Rs 6.17 lakh. This base variant gets all the standard safety features. Additionally, it offers safety features like front seatbelt pretensioners with force limiter, Day & Night IRVM, Impact Sensing Door Unlock and ISOFIX anchors. Its list of functional features includes all-4 power windows, door pockets and front accessory socket. 

Style related features of the E variant include body coloured bumpers, but black door handles and ORVMs. It comes with 14-inch steel wheels without wheel covers. The Amaze E’s features are listed below:

The E variant lacks a handful of must-have features including - audio system with steering-mounted controls, wheel covers, body coloured ORVMs and door handles, remote central locking and electrically adjustable ORVMs. Hence, we would suggest that you consider buying a higher variant of the Amaze and give this base variant a miss.

What are the Features of 2020 Honda Amaze S Petrol?

The Amaze S is Rs. 71,000 more expensive than the E variant.

The Amaze S petrol does not completely justify its additional premium over the base E variant with all its added features, but you can still consider it as it mostly covers all the must-have features. We would recommend that you consider going for the S Special Edition instead of the S variant.

What are the Features of 2020 Honda Amaze Petrol S Special Edition?

The Amaze S Special Edition is Rs. 12,000 costlier than the S variant in case of all the powertrain options.

The S Special Edition adds in 3 more features, namely -- a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, front armrest and seat covers. It is very evident that these features are worth spending the additional amount of just Rs 12,000. Thus, it makes sense to buy the S Special Edition instead of the S variant. 

It is also worth noting that the S Special Edition’s features are exclusive to this variant only, and are not available in any other higher variant.

What are the Features of 2020 Honda Amaze V Petrol?

The Amaze V variant is Rs. 60,000 more expensive than the S variant. As already mentioned earlier, the V variant does not offer the S Special Edition’s features. Thus, the V variant gets added features over the S variant.

Over the S variant, the V variant offers the added safety features including fog lamps and rear defogger. Other key add-on features include smart key with push-button start/stop, auto AC, LED positioning lamps and 15-inch alloy wheels. If you are looking for the petrol-automatic powertrain, then this variant also offers paddle shifters. The added features of the V variant over the S are mentioned in the following table:

According to our internal data, the VX variant’s added features do not completely justify its asking price over the V variant.

If you are considering to buy the VX variant just for the touchscreen infotainment system, then we would recommend that you choose the V variant instead, and retrofit a touchscreen infotainment system.

Honda is also offering an Exclusive Edition accessory pack with the top VX variant, that too without any additional charges. This accessory pack adds in seat covers, front armrest, illuminated sill plate and ambient lighting to make the package enticing. There’s also chrome decor around the windows, fog lamps and on the boot. Of course, these features are not must-haves, but if you wish to buy the V variant and retrofit it with touchscreen infotainment system, rear parking camera and seat covers, then it is sensible to buy the VX Exclusive Edition for now. The Honda Amaze VX Exclusive Edition’s added features are mentioned below:

Which Variant Of The 2020 Honda Amaze Petrol Should You Buy?

The Honda Amaze’s S Special Edition is our top recommended variant. It covers all basic and some modern-day features, and is also attractively priced over its lower variants. 

If you wish to get a more feature-rich variant, then we recommend the V variant. However, if you are planning to buy the V and then retrofit it with an infotainment system, rear parking camera and seat covers, then for the time being, we would be recommending to go for the VX Exclusive Edition instead. This special accessory pack has been introduced for the festive season, and Honda is currently not charging anything extra for this over the VX variant’s price tag.
