The 2021 Honda Amaze facelift has finally been launched in India after months of teasers. The 2021 Honda Amaze facelift comes at a starting price of Rs 6.32 lakh and its top-end trim is priced at Rs 11.15 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi). This compact sedan comes in three trim levels: E, S, and VX. Despite the facelift, the car’s mechanical features remain the same, but there are certain exterior and interior updates.
There has been a large amount of updating done to the Amaze’s face. There are two horizontal chrome strips at the bottom of the new grille, making it even sleeker than before. Furthermore, the fog light housing on the bumper has been revised and now features chrome embellishments.
The most important exterior enhancement is seen in the top-spec VX trim, which now features automatic LED projector headlamps with integrated LED Daytime Running Lamps and LED front fog lamps. Additionally, the car gets new chrome door handles and 15-inch diamond-cut alloy wheels. Besides LED tail-lights and chrome bumper garnishes, there are new C-shaped LED tail-lights at the rear.
Essentially, the interior design remains the same as the one prior to the facelift. Nevertheless, Honda has used new silver accents on the steering wheel and dashboard, which look nice against the black and beige interior. The gear lever has also been wrapped in leather on the manual variants.
As part of the Amaze facelift, new map lamps are added to the front, chrome finishes are added to the AC controls, dust and pollen filter is added to the AC vents and the trunk lid. On top-spec VX trims, those with stitched beige seat fabrics are also standard, as is the 7.0-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay.
The Amaze facelift doesn’t see any mechanical changes. This means that the 1.2-litre i-VTEC petrol engine with 90ps and 110Nm continues to be linked to either a manual gearbox or a CVT automatic. On the other hand, the 1.5-litre diesel engine produces 100ps and 200 pound-feet of torque with a 5-speed manual transmission, and 80ps and 160 pound-feet of torque with a CVT automatic transmission.
Trims and Variants
Three trims continue to be offered on the Amaze, namely E, S, and VX. All trim levels are available with the manual versions of petrol and diesel engines. In the meantime, petrol-CVT models are available on the S and VX trims. Amaze is the only car in this segment offering diesel-CVT options on the VX trim. Previously, the base diesel-CVT S variant was available.
