The compact sedan market has a lot of options ranging from the Maruti Dzire to the Hyundai Aura. Its a popular segment as people upgrading from a small car do have their eyes on a sedan for that ever-important social status. Compact sedans are also a great alternative to the likes of the premium hatchbacks while carrying the same price tag. Among the crop of compact sedans in India, the 2020 Honda Amaze BS6 continues to be a great choice. Here are five reasons why this could be your next car!
The 2020 Honda Amaze BS6 is the only car in its segment to offer an optional CVT automatic. The Dzire comes with a low-cost AGS, ditto for the Aura's AMT and Ford no more offers the good old AT with the Aspire. You can pick the CVT with any of the two fuel options. A CVT automatic is the best bet for urban runs as it provides peppier performance as compared to other forms of automatics. It also ensures fuel economy remains high.
Both Fuel Types
Maruti has stopped the production of diesel cars in India and Toyota has discontinued the Etios. But thankfully, for diesel lovers, Honda continues to offer the 1.5-litre with the Amaze. This reliable motor is famous for low end torquey and excellent fuel economy. Infact, the ARAI rated figure stands at 24.7 kmpl for the manual version!
Space & More Space!
The 2020 Honda Amaze BS6 remains one of the most spacious compact sedans in the country. Honda is known to follow its 'machine minimum, man maximum' philosophy with its entire range of cars and the Amaze is no different. Infact, this car has more cabin space than almost all compact SUVs on sale in the market. Not only this, the Amaze also has a 420 litre boot, among the largest in the segment.
When you are upgrading from a small car, you expect more in terms of creature comforts and features that will impress your friends. In this regard, the Amaze is sorted. From the advanced DIGIPAD 2.0 to paddle shifters (YES!), rear camera to cruise control and more, this compact sedan is rich in features. You even get dual charging outlets up front and smart keyless entry.
Price, Warranty, Service!
The Amaze does not command a premium in terms of pricing. The base model starts from as low as Rs 6.09 lakh for the petrol line up and Rs 7.55 lakh for the diesel range, ex-showroom Delhi. You also get a standard warranty of 3 years / unlimited km which can be extended to as long as 5 years / unlimited km. For those who think a Honda is expensive to service, well, here is a fact. You can buy an annual maintenance contract (AMC) for as low as Rs 3500 for the petrol model and Rs 4900 for the diesel one. Sounds good? Head over to the Amaze page right away to get more info.
