Honda Cars India has launched the BS6 Honda Amaze at a starting price of Rs 6.10 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, Delhi) in the country. The price goes as high as Rs 9.96 Lakhs (Ex. Showroom, Delhi) for the diesel top-end variant.
The BS6 Honda Amaze petrol and diesel variants are approx. Rs 15,000 and Rs. 50,000 more expensive than their BS4 counterparts. However, the flagship diesel-automatic variant in the BS6 model commands a premium of merely Rs 30,000 over its BS4 twin.
Besides updating both the petrol and diesel engines to BS6 emission levels, the Japanese automaker hasn't carried out any other cosmetic or mechanical change in the sedan. Coming to the BS6 updates, the naturally aspirated 1.2L 4-cylinder engine retains the same power and torque figures of 90bhp and 110Nm, respectively. However, the fuel efficiency has taken a dip with both the 5-speed manual and CVT automatic gearboxes from 19.5kmpl to 18.6kmpl and 18.3kmpl from 19kmpl, respectively.
Coming to the diesel powerplant, the company has updated the same 1.5L 4-cylinder turbocharged unit to BS6 by introducing NSC (NOx Storage Catalyst) and a diesel particulate filter. The power output and torque performance with manual gearbox remain the same at 100bhp and 200Nm while the mileage has dipped by 2.7kmpl from the BS4 version's 27.40kmpl. The power and torque figures with CVT auto gearbox stand at 80bhp and 160Nm as previously but again the fuel economy has taken a marginal dip of 2.8kmpl which used to be at 23.80kmpl with the BS4 version.
