After the recent redesign, the Amaze marked three-times better sale numbers last year, so we have no doubt that the 2020 Honda Amaze will continue in the same way. The subcompact sedan has so many qualities to offer, despite that we are talking about a quite affordable vehicle, which is primarily offered in India and a couple of more Asian countries. The second-production year of the second generation doesn’t bring any particular change, which seems natural, considering that the recent redesign was quite generous in terms of novelties. There is a completely new design, which is amazing in many aspects, especially when you consider the balance between price and quality.
2020 Honda Amaze Design
When it comes to base design characteristics, this is a typical subcompact sedan. Still, the overall design looks pretty attractive. Moreover, the grille and other parts at the front closely resemble models like Civic and Accord, which definitely has a highly positive effect on overall aesthetics. The rest of the body comes in a typical sedan layout and we don’t expect to see any particular change for the next year. Still, don’t exclude the possibility to see new color options in the offer.
On the other side, the mechanics will definitely remain the same. The recent redesign has brought a lot of novelties, so Amaze now rides on a new chassis, which is lighter and more efficient. Also, there is a completely new setup, so the new model acts much better in corners while keeping a high level of comfort.
2020 Honda Amaze Interior
When it comes to interior design, the 2020 Honda Amaze will also continue in the same way. The overall interior quality is on a surprisingly high level. For a model at this price range, you would expect a vehicle that looks very cheap from the inside, but this cabin is actually a pretty nice place to be in. The dashboard looks and feels pretty upscale, especially when compared to closest rivals. Also, the driving position is very good, while the visibility is excellent in all directions.
On the other side, we are still talking about a subcompact sedan, which measures slightly above 97 inches between the axles. Therefore, you won’t get some spectacular amount of legroom, but there is still enough place to accommodate four adult passengers, maybe even five in certain conditions. The cargo area is also surprisingly spacious.
2020 Honda Amaze Engines
When it comes to the powertrain, there are some pretty interesting choices in the offer. Base models are equipped with a familiar 1.2-liter gasoline engine, which is good for about 90 horsepower. That’s pretty much enough for a daily ride, especially if you pick a manual gearbox. The engine is also available with a CVT gearbox, which is great in terms of fuel economy, though it can be a little bit loud in certain conditions.
Besides this gasoline engine, the 2020 Honda Amaze is also available with a familiar 1.5-liter diesel unit. This engine is good for about 100 horsepower and almost 150 pound-feet of torque, which provides significantly better driving dynamics, compared to the gasoline engine. Of course, this stands if you pick a manual transmission. This engines is also available with a CVT gearbox. Once again, things are pretty impressive in terms of fuel economy. On the other side, keep in mind that this configuration also means less power, as the diesel with CVT delivers 80 horsepower and 118 pound-feet of torque.
Release Date and Price
The 2020 Honda Amaze is already available in India and other Asian markets. When it comes to the price, base models go around 7.800 dollars. Diesel versions start at around 9.500 dollars.
