As for safety features on the Honda Amaze Privilege Edition, the S (O) MT trim, which the limited edition is based on, comes with dual front airbags and ABS in the diesel version; however, the petrol model misses out on these features.
The Honda Amaze rivals the likes of Maruti Dzire, Hyundai Xcent, Volkswagen Ameo, Tata Tigor and Ford Aspire in the Indian market.
Speaking about the Privilege Edition of Amaze, Mr Jnaneswar Sen, Sr. Vice President, Marketing & Sales, Honda Cars India Ltd said, "Our endeavor has always been to offer best in class features to our customers & we are happy to offer the Privilege Edition of the Honda Amaze with Digipad for advanced infotainment. The new edition with its enhanced value is a compelling offer for our Amaze customers and is available as limited edition."
The Honda Amaze Privilege Edition offers several features over the S (O) MT variant of the regular model. The limited edition Amaze looks premium and offers value for money; however, the petrol model of the Amaze Privilege Edition misses out on safety features such as airbags and ABS, which Honda should have offered it as optional.
