Honda Cars India will reportedly raise the prices of the Amaze in the country. Beginning on April 1, 2023, the compact sedan is expected to see a price increase of up to Rs 12,000 as a result of growing production costs and the upcoming implementation of BS6 Phase 2 rules. Depending on the version, the price increase varies. Last month, the carmaker reported dispensing 6,086 units, compared to the 7,187 units in February 2022 in the domestic market, representing a 15% decline. In a recent development, the company introduced the 2023 Honda City, which meets all emission regulations and has undergone modest cosmetic and functional changes, with a starting price of Rs 11.49 lakh (ex-showroom). The City petrol now boasts ADAS, which includes lane-keep assist, adaptive cruise control, and autonomous emergency braking on higher-spec models. Up until recently, the City Hybrid was the sole vehicle with ADAS. Coming to the Amaze, let's know more in detail about it.

Honda Amaze: Mechanical Specifications

The carmaker will upgrade the Amaze's 1.2-litre petrol engine to comply with BS6 Phase 2 or RDE standards. The engine produces 89bhp and 110Nm and is coupled with a five-speed manual transmission and a CVT unit. Reportedly, the Honda WR-V, Jazz, and City 4th-gen will be dropped from the manufacturer's lineup to meet BS6 Phase 2 standards. As a result, the firm will only have two vehicles in its India range: the Amaze and the City. According to reports, the carmaker discontinued the Amaze's diesel models in January of this year.
