Honda has launched the new Amaze 2018 in the country at a starting price of Rs 5.59 lakh ex-showroom (India). The new Amaze features an all-new design language and gets new features as compared to the outgoing model. Here are all the variants of the compact-sedan explained in detail!
The new Honda Amaze 2018 will be offered in four variants: E, S, V and VX. Safety features such as dual airbags, ABS, EBD, brake assist, ISOFIX child safety seat anchor points and reverse parking sensors will be offered as standard across all the variants.
The base E variant of the new Honda Amaze features a chrome grille, a dual-tone interior theme with piano black console, air-conditioning and driver side auto down window. Apart from these features, the base variant does not get any convenience or luxury features.
The S variant of the new Amaze comes with electrically adjustable and foldable ORVMs with LED turn indicators, shark fin antenna and body coloured door handles. Other features include keyless entry, tilt steering with audio controls, 2-DIN audio system with four speakers and height adjustable driver seat.
