7-inch Touchscreen infotainment system
Unlike current model, the new Amaze is equipped with a new 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system which is also available in the city sedan. This system is compatible with MirrorLink, in-built Navigation, rear parking camera and others.
Honda has confirmed that the new Amaze compact sedan is built on an all-new platform, which is lighter, stiffer and safer. It is a versatile platform, which will also underpin a sub-4 meter SUV and next-gen Brio hatchback.
Diesel version with CVT automatic gearbox
The new Amaze sub-4 meter sedan will continue to feature the existing 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol and a 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine. However, both the engines will be tuned to offer better fuel efficiency and NVH levels. What’s interesting is that the Amaze diesel will also get a CVT automatic gearbox. This will make it the most affordable diesel CVT car in India.
