Expert Test Drive Review
The Honda Brio followed the “man maximum machine minimum” concept and the same has been carried forward here too. Infact, the interiors are similar to the Brio in design but the production versions might have a different color scheme for the fascia. Ergonomics, ie, the steering-seat-pedal relation remain top notch and what has improved over the Brio is the overall cabin space due to the extended wheelbase. Infact, I, who test drove the car, stand 6 feet tall and with the driver seat adjusted for my length, I could still sit at the back without my knees touching the back of the front seat – now this is something that the Dzire can certainly not match up to. Further, the top end version of the Honda Amaze will also get a rear central arm-rest with built in cup holders.
The Amaze has a airy cabin thanks to big windows and this certainly gives it a sense of space. Expect the same levels of equipment as seen on the Brio hatchback which means driver information display, steering controls, ABS, airbags, keyless entry, lot of cup holders etc. Lastly, the Amaze certainly has far more boot space of 400 litres which is much more than the Dzire.
The boot space of the Honda Amaze is pretty good considering the car is under 4m in length - it does beat the Dzire on this account.
The speedometer console of the Honda Amaze is similar to the Brio has houses the tachometer as well in addition to a driver info display.
The gear lever of the Honda Amaze has the same design as the Brio hatchback and feels good to hold.
There are lot of cup holders in the Honda Amaze and this increases the overall practicality of the vehicle.
Similar to many other sedans in India, the Amaze too, in layman terms, is a Brio with a boot. However, look closely and you notice the extended wheelbase, which has been increased by as much as 60mm to liberate more passenger and boot space. The boot too has been integrated very well into the car and is pleasing to the eyes. The front is similar to the Brio hatchback apart from the slightly different grille and bumper but the rear treatment ofcourse is new – the tail lamps do remind us somewhat of the City, and that is a good thing. We believe Honda will continue to offer same color options as the Brio hatchback.
The side profile of the Amaze is another aspect which we love – there are two striking design lines running from the end and the rear, finishing in parallel near the B pillar and easily catch your eye. The Honda Amaze rides on 14-inch wheels shod with 175/65 tyres but we feel these do seem a bit under tyred. Our examples wore MRF tyres and road noise was well controlled. The overall length of the Amaze stands at 3990mm, which is 5mm shorter than its main rival, the Maruti Dzire. However, width and height seem to be same as the Brio hatchback.
The front fascia of the Honda Amaze is similar to that of the Brio hatchback. More body-colored surfaces on the car do add some premium feel to the car.
The rear end of the car has been redesigned completely and now gets a large boot in place of the hatchback. The tail lamps and the defining lines merge cleanly into one good looking rear profile.
The side profile of the Amaze does not look out of shape like other small sedans in this segment. The defining lines from the Brio have been carried over on the sedan as well.
The ground clearance of Honda Amaze is 150mm.
To start with, this baby from Honda, the Amaze is the most efficient car in India across all segments and fuel types. At a rated 25.8kmp, the diesel Honda Amaze even shames the smaller hatchbacks like the Chevrolet Beat Diesel. Its main rival, the Maruti Dzire also falls behind in the fuel economy stakes. Further, Honda hasn’t compromised on the driving pleasure front as this 1.5-litre diesel powerplant puts out class leading power of 100Bhp. Comparing this with the Dzire’s 75 and Mahindra Verito’s 65Bhp and Toyota Etios’ 68Bhp and you get our point.
The Amaze pulls cleanly from just about idling all the way to 3500rpm. Not only is the torque delivery strong, aiding city driving, but the power delivery at higher revs about 3000rpm give it a very petrol like nature, pulling away from traffic with super ease. The Amaze should smoke the Dzire diesel in the 0-100km/h stakes by over a second very easily.
