Honda Amaze Design
The New Amaze is not a major facelift. The front grille gets a thick chrome slat. gets The headlamps are also new, which are borrowed from the Mobilio. A new bumper also finds its way here. It remains the same from the side though. The only differentiation is the new set of alloy wheels and some tweaks to the ORVMs. The rear of the Honda Amaze now looks a lot more smart with the new chrome strip running across between the new tail lamps. The rear bumper is also new.
The antenna of the Honda Amaze facelift has been changed too and it is the new magnetic one. The tyre size on the Amaze facelift remains the same with 14-inch tyres (175/65/R14) and for the top variants it is 185/60/R15, with alloy wheels.

Honda Amaze Engines
The New Honda Amaze has a 1.2-litre petrol engine and a 1.5-litre diesel engine option. The Honda Amaze petrol will produce about 87bhp and 110Nm of peak torque, while the diesel will be producing 98bhp and 200Nm of maximum torque. Both these engines will come mated to a five-speed manual transmission and the petrol will also come with a CVT as well. This is about 18% lighter in weight when compared to the other automatics. The CVT is more fuel-efficient too.
The New Amaze petrol and diesel have good drivability and this will be retained on the facelift too. The mechanicals remain the same and hence, it will have the same driving capabilities. If you need performance, then it is the diesel version of the Amaze. The petrol has good performance but the diesel is certainly powerful.
