2021 Honda Amaze To Launch By August 17
Honda is gearing up for the debut of the Amaze facelift in India, which is set for August 17, 2021. With this mid-cycle update, the small car will get a new design and interior, as well as more features. The Honda Amaze is currently the carmaker’s most popular model in the country. It’s exclusively made in India, and it’s only sold in a few international markets.
Because this is a mid-cycle refresh rather than an entirely new model, expect just minor changes over the previous model. While Honda isn’t known for changing a lot on its automobiles between generations, the Amaze facelift is expected to appear new.
The 2021 Honda Amaze is expected to have new full-LED headlamps, new alloy wheel designs, and redesigned bumpers on the outside. Honda may also release new paint colors. Expect new fabric upholstery for the seats, as well as new interior trim pieces and other amenities, such as a segment-first motorized sunroof. On lesser Amaze facelift models, expect to see more features as standard.
The 2021 Honda Amaze is expected to keep the same engine and transmission options as the previous model. It will be powered by a 1.2-liter i-VTEC petrol engine that produces 90 horsepower and 110 pound-feet of torque. The petrol engine will be available with a 5-speed manual or CVT automatic transmission.
Meanwhile, the diesel engine is a 1.5-liter unit that produces 100hp and 200Nm when linked with a 5-speed manual transmission and 80hp and 160Nm when paired with a CVT automatic transmission. The Amaze’s diesel-CVT combo is unusual, as none of its competitors offers it.
The 2021 Honda Amaze will compete with the Maruti Suzuki Dzire, Hyundai Aura, Tata Tigor, and Ford Aspire, among other compact sedans.
Honda India now sells the City and Amaze sedans, as well as the Jazz hatchback and WR-V compact crossover.
Honda is also planning to debut the City hybrid in India this year, but no specific launch date has been announced. By 2023, Honda plans to launch an all-new midsize SUV based on the City’s chassis. When it is released, this new SUV will compete with the Hyundai Creta, Kia Seltos, MG Hector, and Tata Harrier.
