Since its launch in 2013, the Honda Amaze has clocked a cumulative sales number of 4 lakh units, thereby becoming the most popular model in its segment after the top-selling Maruti Dzire
The Honda Amaze is one of the most popular sub-compact sedans in the Indian car market, with its popularity being second only to the top-selling Maruti Dzire. Recently, the cumulative sales number of the sedan crossed the 4-lakh mark. More than 20% of the customers of this entry-level sedan have chosen the automatic variant. Out of the total sale, the Tier 2 and 3 markets have accounted for 56% of the sedan’s demand. Currently, the Honda Amaze is the best-selling car of the local subsidiary of the Japanese automaker.
Commenting on the milestone of the Honda Amaze, Senior Vice President & Director, Marketing & Sales of Honda Cars India, Ltd. stated,
The Honda Amaze has been an extremely successful model for the company and is a key pillar of our business. The 4 lakh cumulative milestone for the Amaze has been possible because of the love of our customers and support of our dealer partners which has helped the car to become a popular brand across markets. It’s a contemporary sedan which not only matches but exceeds customer expectations and this milestone is a testimony that the Amaze has struck the right chord with Indian customers. With 42% first-time buyers opting for the Amaze, we believe it’s a great choice as the first car for customers which offers the status of a much bigger sedan and great peace of mind with its lowest cost of maintenance to suit their budget.
In January 2020, the BS6-compliant motors of the Honda Amaze were introduced. The sedan now receives its power from a 1.2-litre naturally aspirated gasoline burner and a 1.5-litre turbo oil unit which can generate 90 PS/110 Nm and 100 PS/200 Nm, respectively. The transmission duties on both of the two versions are undertaken by MT and CVT units. The Honda Amaze is equipped with a wide range of top-notch features which include a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system which supports Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, passive keyless entry, start-stop push button, autocruise and rear parking camera. The sedan is offered with dual front airbags, ABS with EBD and rear parking sensors as standard safety features across all the variants. In the Indian auto market, it competes against the Maruti Dzire, Tata Tigor, Hyundai Aura and Ford Aspire.
Talking of Honda’s plan, the Japanese automaker is all set to launch the facelifted Jazz in the foreseeable future. However, its bookings have already started at an INR 21,000 token sum. The 2020 facelifted Honda Jazz will be equipped with a LED package, a one-touch electric roof, new seat coverings and several additional features.
