Honda Cars India has revised the prices of two of its most popular products in India, the Amaze and City. This recent update came just right after the Japanese automaker recently rolled out the new Elevate SUV in the Indian market for an ex-showroom price of Rs 11 lakh. Following the most recent price hike, the Amaze has become expensive by up to Rs 6,900 and is now priced starting at Rs 7.10 lakh, whereas the City sedan, at Rs 11.63 lakh, now costs Rs 7,900 more than before. All mentioned prices are ex-showroom. It is important to note that the prices for the rest of the models in the automaker's portfolio remain unchanged. Let's now go through all the key details regarding the price hike for both products.
Honda Amaze Price Hike
The Honda Amaze prices have increased by Rs 4,900 for variants with solid colours and by Rs 6,900 for models with metallic colours. As a result, the Amaze's costs have increased to Rs 7.10 lakh for the base E MT version and Rs 9.77 lakh for the top-of-the-line VX CVT version. Both prices are ex-showroom. The sedan is powered by a 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine, which produces 89bhp of peak power and 110Nm of maximum torque. There are two different transmission choices: a CVT unit with 18.3km/l and a 5-speed manual transmission with 18.6km/l. The vehicle has been modified to comply with BS6 Phase-2 or RDE standards. It is also E20 compliant.
Honda City Price Hike
The new City is available in four variants and six colour schemes. Now, there is a set price increase of Rs 5,900 for the solid colour options and Rs 7,900 for the metallic colour options across all variations, as per reports. Obsidian Blue and Platinum White Pearl are two options for solid exterior colours. In contrast, its metallic paint palate includes Lunar Silver, Golden Brown, Modern Steel, and Radiant Red. For reference, here is the list of the updated prices.
|City Variants||Price (ex-showroom)|
|SV MT||Rs 11.63 lakh|
|V MT||Rs 12.51 lakh|
|VX MT||Rs 13.63 lakh|
|V CVT||Rs 13.76 lakh|
|ZX MT||Rs 14.86 lakh|
|VX CVT||Rs 14.88 lakh|
|ZX CVT||Rs 16.02 lakh|
The new City is available with two engine options: a 1.5-litre gasoline engine and a 1.5-litre gasoline hybrid Atkinson cycle engine with two electric motors. In comparison to the 1.5-litre gasoline engine's 119bhp and 145Nm of maximum torque, the 1.5-litre gasoline Atkinson cycle engine produces 253Nm of peak torque. Moreover, the sedan is no longer available with the former 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine.
The City petrol gets ADAS, which, on higher trim levels, includes adaptive cruise control, automated emergency braking, and lane-keep assist. Until recently, the City Hybrid was the only vehicle with ADAS. Honda has added a new feature to the City Hybrid's ADAS system called ‘Low-Speed Follow’, which enables the driver to maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front of them. A ‘Lead Vehicle Departure Notification System’ in the car alerts the driver when the car in front of them starts to move.
