The 1.5-litre i-DTEC engine, developed specifically for markets like ours, promises to offer class-leading levels of refinement and drivability. It is expected to put out over 80 PS of power and 200 Nm of torque and return a fuel economy in the region of 18-22 kmpl.
It is certainly not going to be easy for the Honda Amaze to stand up against brands that have already established their presence in the Indian market. But that said, on the other hand we have a sedan that will arrive bundled with a well-balanced design, the revolutionary i-DTEC diesel engine and of course, the backing of the Japanese brand that has always scored high on performance and reliability. Add to it an aggressive pricing strategy and Honda could very well be looking at the DZires, the Veritos and the likes in its rearview mirror in the coming year.
