The new-generation Honda Amaze has been one of the hot launches of this year. Launched on 16th May 2018, the sedan’s updated model garnered highest monthly sales (9,789 units) for the Japanese carmaker within short duration of two weeks. Accounting a growth of 41% per cent, the company recorded a total sales of 15,864 units as opposed to the same month of last year. The compact sedan received over 15,000 bookings so far.
Interestingly, more than half of the demand for the Honda Amaze is for its diesel automatic variants. One out of three buyers is opting for the Amaze diesel automatic. The diesel-CVT is receiving 11 percent of the total bookings. The petrol automatic accounts 24 per cent, which is around 7 per cent more than the old petrol models.

While the new Amaze petrol holds around 64 per cent of the bookings, its diesel variants account 36 per cent. With 19 per cent of the total bookings, the mid-level S petrol model with manual gearbox is high in demand. The top-spec V and VX trims are also enjoying popularity among buyers. Considering the buying trend, Honda might introduce the CVT transmission on the range-topping VX trim of the sedan.
Just so you know, the automatic gearbox is currently available only in the mid-level S and the higher V trims. The manual transmission is offered in four trims – E, S, V and VX. Currently, the new Honda Amaze commands a waiting period of over 40 days. Read: Honda Amaze – Which Variant Is Best?
Major reason behind the Amaze’s success is its premium looks. The new-generation model receives significant cosmetic updates including new headlamps with LED DRLs, new grille, more prominent bonnet, LED position light, a flattened nose and slightly lowered roof-line. Other key changes include revised ORVMs with LED blinkers, new tailgate design, new taillamps with LED elements and a roof spoiler.
