The products that fall below Rs 12 Lakh mark have always attracted a major chunk of buyers in the country. Multiple cars fall in this price bracket, starting from affordable hatchbacks to mid-size SUVs. With many options available in the market, it becomes a tough choice to pinpoint a specific product. So, in today’s article, we have compared two cars that are priced close to each other under this bracket but belong to different segments. Today, we will look at Honda Amaze vs Nissan Magnite and see which one you should buy under Rs 12 Lakh.
Honda Amaze is 3995mm long, 1695mm wide and 1498mm tall. The compact sedan sits on a wheelbase of 2470mm and gets a boot storage capacity of 420-litres. Amaze sits 170mm above the ground. The Nissan Magnite on the other hand is 3994mm long, 1758mm wide and 1572mm tall. The compact SUV sits on a wheelbase of 2500mm and gets a boot storage capacity of 336-litres. The Nissan Magnite sits 205mm above the ground. A glance at the dimensions makes it evident that the Magnite is taller and wider than the Amaze. Moreover, it sits on a longer wheelbase when compared to the Amaze. This means that the Magnite would be able to offer much better headroom, legroom and shoulder-room inside the cabin. Also, the Magnite sits higher than the ground. This makes it more capable to travel on bad patches, giving it safety from underbelly scratching in maximum situations. The Amaze, however, gets a bigger boot, space for which needs to be compensated from the cabin.
The compact sedan comes powered by a 1.2-litre petrol engine that makes 89bhp and 110Nm of torque when mated to a manual gearbox and a CVT gearbox. This combination gives out fuel efficiency of 18.6kmpl. The same petrol unit when mated to the CVT gearbox gives out fuel efficiency of 18.3kmpl. The Amaze also gets a 1.5-litre diesel engine that makes 99bhp and 200Nm of torque when mated to a manual gearbox. The diesel unit of the Amaze gives out fuel efficiency of 24.7kmpl in this combination. The same diesel unit makes 79bhp and 160Nm of torque when mated to the CVT gearbox and returns a fuel efficiency of 21kmpl in this combination. The Amaze comes with 15-inch wheels.
Coming to the Nissan Magnite, the car comes powered by a 1.0-litre turbo petrol engine that makes 71bhp and 96Nm of torque when mated to a manual gearbox. The same unit makes 99bhp and 152Nm of torque when mated to a CVT gearbox. The Magnite returns a fuel efficiency of 18.75kml with the manual combination and 17.7kmpl with the CVT combination. The Magnite comes with 16-inch wheels.

Which one should you buy under Rs 12 Lakh?
The Honda Amaze is a great choice for people who wish to experience the refinement of Honda engines. Also, this car becomes a perfect car for people who love to travel with their families and carry a considerable quantity of luggage. The Nissan Magnite, on the other hand, becomes a great choice for people who wish to experience the feel of an SUV. The Magnite comes with better ground clearance, making it a suitable travelling companion, even on bad patches. Moreover, a long list of advanced features makes this a great choice for tech-savvy customers. However, the biggest advantage that the Amaze has over the Magnite is the availability of a diesel engine, something that might be the main point of concern for a few customers. With this, we hope that the question to this answer is cleared.
