Following its competitors like Renault, Mahindra, and other well-known automakers, Honda is offering a range of benefits on its two popular sedans - the Amaze and the City this month. Interested customers can grab offers rendered by select dealerships in India in the form of cash discounts, exchange bonuses, and corporate discounts. For those unaware, the Elevate SUV is the new offering by the carmaker, which is slated for launch in the festive season. In India, the forthcoming all-new SUV will rival the likes of the Kia Seltos, the Hyundai Creta, and more. Coming to discounts, here are the complete details of the offers that customers can avail of throughout the month on the Amaze and the City sedans.
Honda Amaze August Discounts: Up to Rs 21,000
Buyers may opt to receive complimentary accessories worth up to Rs 12,296 or a cash discount of up to Rs 10,000 for August. The manufacturer has also rolled out corporate discounts of up to Rs 6,000 and customer loyalty rewards of up to Rs 5,000. However, there are no exchange deals available on the sedan this month. The Amaze comes equipped with a 1.2-litre, four-cylinder petrol engine featuring a 5-speed manual or CVT gearbox and starts at Rs 7.05 lakh (ex-showroom). The car can generate 89bhp of maximum power and 110Nm of peak torque.
Honda City August Discounts: Up to Rs 73,000
The Japanese carmaker launched the City facelift in March this year, with prices starting at Rs 11.57 lakh and going as high as Rs 20.39 lakh for the top-spec City Hybrid. All prices are ex-showroom. This month, Honda is giving the City the greatest discount. This includes free accessories worth up to Rs 10,946 or a cash discount of up to Rs 10,000. Buyers may also be eligible for an exchange bonus of up to Rs 20,000 for a Honda model and Rs 10,000 for other manufacturers. Further, Honda is providing corporate discounts of up to Rs 20,000 and a loyalty incentive of Rs 5,000.
The new City has two available engine options: a 1.5-litre gasoline engine and a 1.5-litre gasoline hybrid Atkinson cycle engine with two electric motors. The 1.5-litre gasoline Atkinson cycle engine delivers 253Nm of peak torque and 124bhp of maximum power, compared to the 1.5-litre gasoline engine's 119bhp and 145Nm. RDE and E20-compliant engines are already readily accessible. In addition, the vehicle no longer has the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine that it once did.
The City petrol offers ADAS, which on higher trim levels includes automated emergency braking, adaptive cruise control, and lane-keep assist. The City Hybrid was the only car having ADAS up until recently. The City Hybrid's ADAS system now has a new function called "Low-Speed Follow" from Honda that enables the driver to keep a safe distance from the car in front of them. The vehicle also has a "Lead Vehicle Departure Notification System" that notifies the driver when the vehicle in front of them begins to move.
