Honda Cars India has disclosed sales figures for February 2023. Domestically, the carmaker reported selling 6,086 units in the past month, compared to 7,187 units in February 2022, denoting a decrease of 15%. The carmaker has recorded a decrease in the exports segment as well. It exported 973 units last month compared to 2,337 units in February 2022. To meet the RDE and E20 emission requirements, Honda will reportedly upgrade every model in its lineup. Recently, the firm launched the revised Honda City at a starting price of Rs 11.49 lakh (ex-showroom), which meets all emission standards and has received minor visual and functional changes. The manufacturer has discontinued the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine, formerly accessible with the car. This engine has not been upgraded to meet the upcoming real driving emission (RDE) norms.

Meanwhile, Honda also has plans to launch the third-generation Amaze in 2024. The present Amaze has been on the market for about five years, yet in 2021 it experienced a little mid-life modification. There is no official confirmation, but speculations are strong that the upcoming Amaze will ride on a revised version of the current chassis, which could also support Honda's future mid-size SUV. The new Amaze will reportedly feature an exterior similar to that of more current Honda sedans, including the most recent City and even the most recent Accord sold internationally. Inside, according to reports, the new Amaze will share a free-standing touchscreen entertainment system with the next Accord and the HR-V SUV.
The new model won't be offered with a diesel option. Mechanically, the new-gen Honda Amaze will likely be available with a 1.2-litre 4-cylinder petrol engine, which also powers the existing model. The engine is capable of producing 89bhp and 110Nm, paired with a CVT or 5-speed manual transmission.
