Update - 18/08/2021 - Honda has launched the new Amaze Facelift at a starting price of Rs 6.32 lakh for the base variant and Rs 11.15 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi, for the top-end model.
It is a common practice done by carmakers to bring in a mid-cycle facelift to the existing model to boost sales and enhance the market share. Honda Cars India is following the same trend with their best-selling sedan, Amaze. In this article, we provide you with the differences between the 2021 Honda Amaze facelift vs the old model and share our opinions on whether you should buy the pre-lift version or get the new facelifted one.
The design of the Honda Amaze always takes a subjective approach because to some, it looks like a perfect old school compact sedan while others complain the design being boring and not appealing. However, that has now changed with this mid-cycle facelift. Please note, that the new Honda Amaze facelift has only got some subtle styling tweaks and nothing has been changed under the hood.
At the front, the halogen units has now been replaced by LED headlights and you do get a newly designed grille. Similarly, both the front and rear bumpers have been revamped. Moving to the side profile, the newly styled alloy wheels are observed and they take inspiration from the fourth-generation Honda City. The rear profile now gets updated LED taillights.
Overall, the cabin layout feels the same but there are new silver accents on the dashboard, steering wheel, around AC vents, etc. All in all, the interior cabin of the Amaze might not be very exciting but it gets the job done.
Carmakers ensure that there is an addition of features with every facelift and in this case, we have seen some new features on the updated Amaze. For instance, it gets new seat upholstery, leather surround for the gear lever (only in manual variants), Satin Silver accents on the dashboard along with door trims, chrome-plated air vent knobs and a new dust and pollen filter.
Some other features of the new Honda Amaze Facelift include a 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity. It also gets a push start/stop button, cruise control, etc.
Well, the good thing is that there are no mechanical changes at all. The Amaze facelift continues with the same 1.2-litre petrol and 1.5-litre turbocharged diesel unit. The former is a four-cylinder unit that churns out as much as 89 bhp at 6000 RPM with a peak torque of 110 Nm at 4800 RPM.
The oil burner generates 99 bhp with a peak torque of 200 Nm. However, in CVT, the power figures are tamed down to 79 bhp and 160 Nm of peak torque. Both the engines are mated to a 5-speed stick shift and an optional CVT unit.
