The Honda Amaze with its efficient diesel engine and sporting a killer price-tag has started with a bang with many bookings in hand already. Not surprising. What is also not surprising that Maruti whose Dzire the Amaze is squarely aimed against has also released its counter attack in form of a new limited edition variant called as Dzire Regal. The Dzire Regal is an attempt to bring more value to the Dzire by injecting more features. The headline news is that the Dzire Regal is available only in VXi variant (petrol) and has no changes done to the engines.
The Dzire Regal comes in a new colour called as Serene Blue plus has body graphics and if you have not yet noticed already silver-finish to the upper and lower grille. In fact this silver treatment also extends to the fog lamps and outside mirrors. Inside the VXi now gets features from the top ZXi model with new features like integrated audio system coupled with auto volume control and tweeters. For more luxury you get wood inserts, stainless-steel door sills, beige faux leather cushions plus embroidered seat covers, leather wrapped steering wheel among other tidbits.
These are done to take away some of the shine of the new Honda Amaze and the Dzire Regal is priced at Rs 5.60 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The question is, are these changes enough?
